Lysette, the second transgender woman who worked on Transparent to accuse Tambor of sexual harassment, said in a Variety roundtable: “I’m used to people not wanting to believe us and being at the bottom of the totem pole, as you said — being considered overly sexual beings, objectified — I would say, more so than even cis women. Our word doesn’t carry weight the same way, which is why it took him shouting down Jessica Walter to be canceled. That was what it took. Never mind the fact that these things occurred on set with me and others. It was about the incident in that New York Times interview with Arrested Development."
