GLAAD responded to a joke performed by Conan O'Brien on the Tonight Show in which O'Brien poses for "tabloid" pictures he could sell and make a whole lot of money off. What do you think about this one?
Another one of the things L, G, B, and T people have in common is that any situation that involves us suddenly becomes too steamy, a freak-show, or embarrassing for others involved. A movie with a singlem half-shrouded gay sex scene is suddenly disgustingly pornographic. A couple kissing in the park, if they're two women, get arrested. And Conan can't just pose in front of fake strippers. No, they need fake mustaches. Because... why?
There's idiocy aplenty in this joke. A transwoman isn't a woman who puts on a mustache. "Trannie's" is poorly punctuated, if they're going for the joke I think they are, and, if not, it's nothing more than a slur to draw attention to the fact that the girls there... well, they're not really girls! Haw haw haw haw!
But the entire premise of the joke - it's bad to be caught with strippers, but even worse to be caught with transgender strippers - it's just an insult to an entire segment of the population.
I don't know who thought this was a good idea, but I imagine they won't even respond to criticism. If they do, it'll be something along the lines of "Can't you all take a joke?" Because that's totally the issue - LGBT people just have to learn to laugh a little.
