Comedian Ricky Gervais is making headlines for his latest Netflix special in which he mocked the transgender ideology.
What are the details?
In the special, titled "Ricky Gervais: SuperNature," the namesake comedian joked about the transgender movement.
"Women -- I mean, the old-fashioned women. You know, the one with wombs," he said in the special. Those f***ing dinosaurs! I love the new women. They’re great, aren’t they? The new ones we've been seeing lately. The ones with beards and c***s.”
"They’re as good as gold, I love them," the comedian continued. "And now the old-fashioned ones say, ‘Oh, they want to use our toilets.’ ‘Why shouldn’t they use your toilets?’ ‘For ladies!’ ‘They are ladies — look at their pronouns! What about this person isn’t a lady?’ ‘Well, his penis.’ ‘Her penis, you f***ing bigot!’ ‘What if he rapes me?’ ‘What if she rapes you, you f***ing TERF w****?'”
He added that it's hard to know what jokes are safe and what jokes will trigger a mob condemnation.
“You can’t predict what will be offensive in the future,” Gervais added. “You don’t know who the dominant mob will be. Like, the worst thing you can say today, get you canceled on Twitter, death threats, the worst thing you can say today is, ‘Women don’t have penises,’ right? Now, no one saw that coming. You won’t find a ten-year-old tweet of someone saying, ‘Women don’t have penises.’ You know why? We didn’t think we f***ing had to!”
At the end of the comedy special, Gervais explained that he actually does support the transgender movement despite the jokes.
“Full disclosure: In real life of course I support trans rights," he insisted. "I support all human rights, and trans rights are human rights. Live your best life. Use your preferred pronouns. Be the gender that you feel that you are. But meet me halfway, ladies: Lose the c***. That’s all I’m saying.”
