I really want there to be like a proper bad guy movie. Like where the bad guy wins but not like megamind where he turns all soft but one where the hero dies or something and the bad guy actually takes over the world and enslaves the human race or whatever there plan is and nothing else
White people get mad when you wear a band t shirt of a band you don’t listen to, but they’re fine with wearing headdresses from cultures they know and care nothing about.
dat leap in logic
don’t let them see this. this gon fuck them up. they still gon do it, but its gon fuck them up.
At this rate, Colbert might actually be held accountable in the near future for making transphobic jokes.
Go trigger warn some shit
That’s not transphobic, though. He’s making a point that because the LGBT agenda is “barreling forward at full-speed” that the B and T of LGBT is being left behind. Everyone is focusing on the L and the G that there are people who have no idea what the B and T even stand for. He’s not being transphobic or making a slight meant to make fun of or harm the bi and trans* community. He’s making a point that no one is focusing on them because they’re focusing on the lesbian and gay community.
Mother. Fucking. This.
People really need to realize that EVERYTHING Colbert says while on camera is satire.
Satire: The use of humor, irony, exaggeration, or ridicule to expose and criticize people’s stupidity or vices, particularly in the cotext of a play, novel, fiilm or other works.
He is not making a transphobic joke. He is not honestly saying that bi and trans people do not count/matter/exist. He is making humor in order to shed light on the fact that they are forgotten.
He is doing this to raise fucking awareness that there is more to LGBT than LG. He is raising a big flag that says “Hey, don’t forget about these guys. They count. They matter. Why aren’t you doing anything about them? Why aren’t they discussed?” He is not trying to say “They don’t matter.”
So please stop with the self righteous, self pity, “social justice” comments unless you know what you are talking about.
I do appreciate that Bisexual is matched with bacon. I rather enjoy bacon.
This is why I love the Colbert Show.
Stephen Colbert is basically my hero.
Um I don’t mean to be rude but Stephen Colbert is pretty transphobic and no amount of mental gymnastics is going to change that.Satire really is only powerful as a tool of social justice when you’re satirizing those in power or oppressive stuff. Since he makes a ton of jokes using transgender people as a punchline he is kind of most definitely transphobic. Anyways I’m not very good at tumblr or making gifs but here are some of his quotes about trans people and a source. Please excuse me for posting them so awkwardly and whatever.
I know some of you might think that like he apologized so it’s ok but using someones pain as a way to make another joke isn’t really an apology but whatever.
This is from his book America again where he uses a transphobic joke to make fun of gum and yeah…
I have no idea how this managed to reach 35k notes without a single person being like no actually Stephen Colbert is transphobic but yeah. I didn’t even bother to reblog everything but whatever. He has said tons more fucked up things and everyone can google it.
i want a boob job. a job involving boobs. that would be nice.
every achievement in cinema history has led up to this moment
