Dave Chapelle Tells "Problematic" Jokes About Gays and Trannies and So It's a Big Thing

So problematic I just can't even.

This pyrsyn, by the way, lists hyr accomplishments in hyxr twitter bio, starting first with "creator of the #OscarsSoWhite" hashtag outrage.

That's huge.


Buzzfeed, of course, is outraged.

Bonus points for this writer deploying the new-ish Offended Snowflake tactic of claiming that people who don't buy into their bullshit are themselves snowflakes who are easily offended. Watch how quickly Chappelle -- not the guy whining about Chappelle -- is branded as easily "offended."

Chappelle tells a story about being at a party where a trans girl gets high or drunk and proceeds to get sick and pass out. For Chappelle, "Whatever it was, it was definitely a man in a dress." He moseys over and unassumingly asks, "Is he okay?" He's admonished for using the wrong pronoun and now is immediately offended. "I support anyone's right to be who they are inside, but to what degree do I have to participate in your self-image? Why do I have to switch up my pronoun game for this motherfucker?"

And this is the crux of the cisgender problem -- cis peopleís tendency to center themselves in the transgender experience. These aren't your pronouns. They belong to the person you're addressing. Using the correct pronouns isn't meant to validate someone's whimsical sense of self; itís a basic courtesy and shows respect for who someone is. If Chappelle is clutch-my-pearls offended by incidents like this, itís not because of our demand to be respected, but because of what that demand says about his own fragile gender identity.

By the way, "Cis people" have a "tendency to center themselves in the transgender experience" only to the extent you will not leave us the fuck alone in making demands that we pretend you're your new whimsically-chosen sex.

Stop "centering" us in your hot sexual confusion mess and Shanghaing us into your game of make-pretend and then we'll stop "centering" ourselves in it too.
