A Look at Transphobia, Courtesy of the Daily Show

Posted By on Fri, Apr 8, 2016 at 3:00 PM


Jessica Williams, national treasure and feminist superhero, had a segment on Wednesday's Daily Show highlighting the struggles trans people face on a daily basis.

In the segment, Williams interviews trans woman Meagan Taylor, who was once reported to the police for being "a bit unusual," and a panel of other trans people about the bigotry they experience on a daily basis. 

Williams also talks to Colorado chaplain and lawmaker Gordon Klingenschmitt, who decided to let this combination of words come out of his mouth while on camera:
“They [the transgender community] not only want to be confused with their own identity, they want the rest of us to be confused with them. Now they want the government to join them in that pretense. They’re making us into liars.” 
Nooooope.
