I’m mixed. I thought it was mostly funny but I feel like he’s incessant with the trans jokes and it’s not him so much as it is, how it enables his fan base (who are often homophobes/transphobes) to joke and treat lgbtq+ people on the daily basis.
I think he supports the lgbtq+ community and the problem isn’t him as much it’s how his followers are not on the same page. Just a reminder, outside of NYC / LA / San Fran, the country is still very homophobic. These people still are openly discriminated against. If you look at the stats of youth, you’d see how marginalized they are. Dare I say, Moreso than the black community other than in those few places.
I also noticed many of the black community is fiercely defending him without question. Since they know ***ual orientation / gender identity isn’t a choice, I would’ve hoped they’d at least understand the perspective of lgbtq people.
would the black community be forgiving if a white or gay comic made fun of Black Lives Matter as black people are marginalized? I know I would think it would be off putting.
I think we need to create a more understanding society. It’s all or nothing. We are fully inclusive, respect each other’s right to safety, life and existence and we can all joke about each other. OR we essentially segregate ourselves from each other and live in this cancel culture. A society built on “tribes”
