@patrickklepek: While I agree with you that the vast majority of these jokes are unfunny, I don't think any of them were truly offensive or meant to be, all it does its marginalize us when it is pointed out when a joke about us is made, instead of just lumping them in with the rest. That is by definition singling us out, and it is unneeded in this case. Joel McHale isn't a rapist yeah? He didn't go into trans peoples houses and beat them up, right? Hell, did he even use the word Tranny? Or Imply there was something bad about being trans? No, He said something about a character getting a sex change. It's just not truly trans-phobic in anyway, and to crucify someone like their a Nazi Gallagher is both unfair to them, and the trans community. If you want to help, then instead of saying how you feel about it on twitter or expressing your own outrage for a group that "collectively, a smaller and weaker voice", instead give one of us the platform to express how we feel about it yeah?
But I didn't even do that. :\ I simply said I agreed the jokes were inappropriate and agreed with someone who asked. I didn't express "outrage." I don't know where you're getting that.
