Thank you for noticing! It's called nuance. I'm not criticising her for being trans, which is perfectly valid and she deserves nothing bad happening to her because of that. You are using her minority status as a shield from criticism, which is disingenuous, and dare we say it, knowingly rude. Please stop trying to do that. What, are we not suppossed to criticise Milo Yiannopoulos just because he's gay? He's also supported Trump and p*dophilia, and collaborated with N*zis, so I guess it's just homophobic pointing that out.

Funny that all of you only hyperfocus on Blaire, when ContraPoints, Kat Blaque, Mia Mulder, Abigail Thorn, NikkiTutorials and many other trans women actually provide you with entertaining and educational content, instead of validating your pre-existing bigotry. Cheers!

 

@charThank you for sharing your stance, you're brave and strong.

You're basically saying she's not the right kind of trans.  I don't even know Blaire White I just happened to watch the video because it was posted here. And in it she describes how Dave's trans friend was bullied online to the extent she killed herself. And your response to that is pretty horrible. We don't have to like everything everybody says, and life would be boring if we did, but not liking what someone says doesn't make them some intrinsically bad person.

Making a joke about something does not necessarily reveal your true feelings about it. Sometimes we need to laugh at something in order to process what it all means. It is intellectually, morally and socially irresponsible to reduce someone to a thought they might have, a feeling they express or a statement they make.  We are more than just those things. And it is important to have all of these in order to discuss  and debate.  It is through discussion and debate that we find progress.

Chappelle is a transphobic asshole and so is anyone who supports and defends him. Now if you can't live with being called transphobic then don't be. As for Madonna she should have included Lil Nas X instead of Chappelle whom no one cares about outside of the US and his coming out as terf is not his first nasty comment about the lgbt community. So if Madonna gets in hot water for standing by this moron it will be deserved because it makes her look like a hypocrite. She benefited from the trans co

Great question....and there are no shoulds. ...but this is a community that needs allies. Plus the exclusionary conversations around trans people (privileged people discussing what rights you should have in the next room etc) mirror the 90s era of homophobia almost exactly. DC shouldn't be cancelled - indeed, he hasn't and will probably never be cancelled. Neither have trans people got 'thin skin' as he puts it. The trans narrative is one of survival...you have to be pretty hardco

Thank you for sharing, RUADJAI. I feel like listening to queer BIPOC is always a good barometer of where our attitudes should be on this, considering they're more than familiar with both black issues and queer issues, and how they aren't always disjoint. Also, glad they're sort of mentioning some of the things I did as well.

 

I feel like there's this transitive property that goes like "Madonna is a saint who can't do no wrong" => "She included Chappelle in her special" => "Chappelle must be a saint too" => "Therefore, the naysayers are just snowflake losers who don't believe in Freeze Peach, lol trans people are horrible amirite" <insert Madonna's Baldwin quote or something she said 30 years ago> EPIC WIN . As I said, bringing Madonna into this was just pointless, when the discussion literally has nothing to do with her.

She benefited from the trans community with Vogue so she should at least support them when they are attacked not only by this sack of shit but also by a huge company like Netflix whom after boring everyone with their series by (most ofthe time) ridiculously including every possible minority in the cast to boost their streaming ratings are now showing its true face.

you think madonna would include only popular people in her show when she says herself " she is not here to be popular " - shes not that kind of artist - she never was tbh - she includes who she wants and he is perfect in my opinion due to the whole theme of the show etc etc ..i do not think he is transphobic and i think that all this negative attention must have done his views wonders on netflix lol ...i said what i said

What does Madonna have to do with what Dave Chappelle thinks? I doubt she even knows what he said, considering she's out of touch with what happens in her own career right now, or what people on Twitter say about her daily. He said that after the release of the tour too.

Idk anything about him, but i noticed that he and Madonna have been together many times. Idk how a person that obviously likes Madonna can be transphobic, but you never know. His comment was inelegant but maybe he didn't really want to insult anyone, Madonna made something similar in 2014 with the n-word post, so idk.
