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.
If you ever get offended by this man, you need to rethink your life and rethink your choices.

You’re bad at this, Rush Limbaugh. You don’t even understand how babies are made, let alone how people can have sex without making a baby, and you would like the government to take over decision-making on these issues on your say-so. And you don’t get it. You biologically don’t get it. You just don’t understand it. You were absent that day. - Rachel Maddow
Oh Rachel, I love you for this segment.
This segment was flawless.
That’s about the size of it.
I’ve been raging on Twitter today about how batshit insane it is that Virginia is proposing that uterus-bearers undergo trans-vaginal ultrasounds before being allowed to have abortions. This means that a doctor, even if he or she knows that it is unnecessary, must probe inside the vagina to obtain an image of the fetus. Forcing an object inside someone, even if their pregnancy is a result of sexual assault.
That’s all it is; insane. No man, no person, nobody has the right to tell you what you can or cannot do with your own body. It’s horrific and ugly and I don’t know how else to describe it. Nobody deserves to be raped because of how they were dressed, or shamed because they are unable to or don’t want to give birth, or told on any level by anyone that they are a lesser person for having sex at all.
