This Tumblr collects horrible, lazy transphobic jokes as told by your favorite comedians, TV shows, movies, video games, and comics.
Trigger warnings everywhere!
It’s vastly inappropriate for ANY cis person to take ANY trans roles for the following reasons:
I’m not sure why this is even the least bit controversial.
We generally discuss Stephen Colbert and Jon Stewart’s shows on our sister-blog, yourmomentofhate. There are a couple of posts about it there, I believe.
Yeah, he seems like an enormous piece of shit. Especially since he made that tweet on Islam, ugh.
Here are a few articles about the transphobia, though:
The episode was not about how to spot trans women from “real women” it was actually about the differences between men and women. In this small segment from the episode they discuss the physical differences, and although some of the language that he used was less than desirable and the manner in which they talked about the physical differences (using it in terms of trans women) was in order to make it more relatable to the wider public as it is after all a TV show. Stephen fry does a lot of work for charities, in particular AIDs, and is also an outspoken advocate for LGBT rights and started a discussion about the Sochi Games after writing an open letter to David Cameron (British PM) about the human rights abuses being carried out towards the LGBT community.
In the words of Stephen Fry, Be absolutely lovely to each other
Other words of Stephen Fry:
"You’re sitting in a dimly lit bar, girls and boys, with a saucy little poppet. How can you be sure she’s not a bloke?”
"It ‘s no proof, is the point. Basically a good ladyboy can imitate almost anything female in terms of how they hold the legs and, you know, anything like that.”
"Well, some women, as you say, have large hands and large feet, you know? And a dainty ladyboy can easily fool and often has.”
"Moving on, the truth is that without undressing them or testing their DNA you can’t be sure what sex someone is, so be careful out there.”

Thank you! We’ll look into it and see if it’s trans misogyny or cis misogyny, it’ll probably one or the other.
