Trans author and activist Janet Mock 'flips the script' on Fusion

In a segment for Fusion, author and trans activist Janet Mock "flips the script" on AM Tonight host Alicia Menendez.

After the exercise, the two women spoke about what makes such questions so invasive or problematic, both to ask and to be forced to answer.
