This Tumblr collects horrible, lazy transphobic jokes as told by your favorite comedians, TV shows, movies, video games, and comics.
Trigger warnings everywhere!
Oh, right. I completely forgot about Wilfred. It has quite a few gross trans jokes if I remember correctly.
We’ll look into it in more depth, soon-ish.
Wow, yeah. There’s some really gross stuff here. Like, the main character of the show basically uses a homeless black trans woman as a prop to make some point about the needy and throwing away food, then spends the rest of the time misgendering her and patting herself on the back for how great she is.
It’d almost be a pretty good satire of how liberals occasionally pretend to help minorities in order to make themselves look better, while refusing to respect them in any tangible way. Unfortunately, this is all being done without a hint of irony.
Would you mind sharing the season and episode number with us?
We haven’t gone through Parks and Rec, yet. But, it might be next in line after 30 Rock. Nothing seems to come up on a quick search, though.
Also, we tend not to include that sort of casual cissexism unless it’s intentionally targeting trans people. It’s just too commonplace.
taking comedy seriously should mean understanding the power of comedy and the shittiness you can easily perpetuate behind the visage of comedy, often without even knowing it, without even knowing the awful shit the world has gotten its hooks into you, via motherfucking jokes, the shit it can inure you to, thanks to motherfucking jokes. taking comedy seriously is understanding that comedy is not inherently neutral, that jokes are not inherently neutral.
taking comedy seriously as like some classical piano piece to be perfected always leads to horrible motherfuckers who get more mad about style biting than anything else in the world
