In the "Internet Harassment" segment John Oliver makes a cissexist joke (self.gsm)
submitted 2 years ago by acleverprofilename
he apparently says something along the lines of "the only people avoiding internet harassment have a white penis"
although i don't mind the white part, lots of trans women get harassed even more because they have/had a penis

IIRC it was "and if you think it's not a problem enjoy your white penis"

'If you think [internet harrassment] is not that big of a problem, congratulations on your white penis. If you have one of those, you probably have a very different experience of the internet.'

that's slightly better but still makes me uncomfortable
[–]TheMu 9 points10 points11 points 2 years ago
yeah I mean how in the fuck are you going to do a whole segment on online harassment and not just ignore but actively elide the amount of harassment that trans women receive online simply for being who they are.....
fuck john oliver and fuck his toothless transmisogynistic criticism

Yeah it's really casually delivered transphobia. Like he didn't even bother thinking about it. I mean I like the guy and the segment was really interesting and informative but I wish he would not do this kind of stuff.

I hated him ever since that whole "If Sepp Blather resigns I'm gonna lower myself to your peasant level and eat McDonald's and drink Bud Light and wear Adidas".
Just another upper class wanker.
