Elle Fanning Says 'It Sucks' That Transgender Phobia Is Still A Problem

Elle Fanning Says 'It Sucks' That Transgender Phobia Is Still A Problem

Elle Fanning arrives at the hair salon for an appointment on Tuesday afternoon (August 25) in Beverly Hills, Calif.

Speaking with Out magazine, the 17-year-old actress shared her own experience with dealing with the topic of being transgender.

“In my school, I would say we’re very accepting,” Elle shared, “but you hear about all these hate crimes, and you realize it is still really bad.”

She added, “It just sucks that it’s still a problem. The thing is that so many people are afraid to ask the questions. If you have a question, go find the answer. And try to be a compassionate, caring person. Why should anyone care if someone is just trying to be themselves?”

    Redefining language. Phobia translates as fear. I doubt anyone “fears’ TGs unless that TG has a crush on them.
