Every little bit helps

Having a transgender person appear on a show like Jeopardy is helpful. It allows the every person who watches television after dinner to be exposed to how normal we are and how we don't have three heads and breathe fire.

After many decades of salacious speculation and misinformation regarding how trans people behave and what drives them, these simple occurrences work towards calming the current backlash of transphobia that the advancement of trans people has brought us recently. The people who love to operate based on fear and judgement of things they do not understand, are quieted even if it's only for a while. It helps to normalize things.

It may not be earth shattering, but every little bit helps and Amy Schneider is no doubt very glad to be a part of it.
