Jennifer Lawrence on Nude Photo Leak: At Least I’m Not a Hermaphrodite!

The first excerpts of her interview were released last week, and Lawrence demonstrated the sort of class and self-deprecating humor that we’ve come to expect from one of Hollywood’s most talented actresses.

She defended her right to privacy, spoke honestly about the shame and fear she experienced in the wake of the scandal, and called out the hackers responsible with eloquent indignation.

She was praised for her poise and bravery, and she helped put a human face on a crime in which millions were complicit.

A new portion of the interview that went public today, however, contains an offensive gaffe that has many in the LGBT community calling for an apology.

“At least I’m not a hermaphrodite,” Lawrence told the iconic lifestyle mag. “I could have been outed – Jennifer Lawrence, hermaphrodite.”

While Lawrence clearly meant for the comment to be taken as a joke, it’s struck many fans as insultingly transphobic.

Some believe Lawrence’s comment implies that being “outed” as a “hermaphrodite” would have been a worst-case scenario.

Given the struggles faced by transgender actresses like Laverne Cox, it’s not hard to see why Jennifer’s comments have been taken as hopelessly insensitive and derogatory to transgender and intersex individuals.

Lawrence has received support from countless fans and fellow celebs throughout her recent ordeal, and now many of her most ardent admirers find themselves hoping that she’ll return the favor by offering encouragement and a sincere apology to a segment of the population that faces daily discrimination.
