Transgender rights activist and author Janet Mock was a recent guest on Power 105.1’s The Breakfast Club with hosts Charlamagne Tha God, Angela Yee, and DJ Envy where she discussed her latest book, Surpassing Certainty. After an appearance from comedian Lil Duval, who expressed violent threats against those in the transgender community on the show, Mock penned an op-ed piece addressing Envy and Charlamagne.
Mock’s piece was published by beauty magazine Allure, and it opened up with her pointing out that the show’s hosts haven’t always been kind to transgendered guests in the past prior to her going to the set.
After explaining that she did the spot in hopes to enlighten and encourage, Mock turned the piece towards the comments Lil Duval made in response to Envy’s question about trans women. Mock seized on the moment where Envy holds up her book to Duval, prompting an insult from the comedian.
The hosts laugh after using my image as a literal prop — just days after I was a guest on the same show — for laughs, vitriol, and a deeper call and justification for violence. Just so we are all clear: On a black program that often advocates for the safety and lives of black people, its hosts laughed as their guest advocated for the murder of black trans women who are black people, too!
This was not the first time that I’ve been misgendered, dismissed, told that I am an abomination, that I need medical help and God, et cetera, et cetera. Boo boo: You are not original. Everything you’ve spewed has been said to me and my sisters before — hundreds of times. But there are deeper consequences to this casual ignorance.
It’s this deplorable rhetoric that leads many cis men, desperately clutching their heterosexuality, to yell at, kick, spit on, shoot, burn, stone, and kill trans women of color. It’s something I’ve written about extensively and even explored in my conversation with actress Amiyah Scott, who lost her sister Chyna Gibson when she was shot to death in New Orleans in February. Chyna was the fifth trans woman killed in 2017. There have been at least 15 reported deaths of trans women of color so far this year, according to GLAAD.

Amy Schumer kicked off her “Saturday Night Live” hosting debut with a hilarious monologue. But the laughs didn’t stop there.
In what was probably one of the best sketches of the night, Schumer and the SNL cast tackled the issue of gun control with a darkly yet funny mock PSA titled simply “Guns.”
The clip presents a bunch of different scenarios – a girlfriend waiting for her boyfriend at dinner, a husband taking his pregnant wife to the hospital in a cab, two co-workers talking — while a voiceover says, ”Whatever you’re waiting for, whatever you face, whatever you’re looking for, there are things we all share. Love. Family. Connection. A sense of purpose. And also, guns.”
Yep. They went there.
The voiceover continues: “Guns are there in little moments and big ones. They unite us, comfort us, bring us joy and strength.” The scenarios play out with the addition of guns. Even the tiny newborn baby gets one. Scary stuff.
And then the kicker: “Guns: We’re here to stay.”
