Yeah the episode wasn't actually a satire about trans people.



Okay, what is it a satire about?

Offensive speech is just free speech, and the exact type of speech that the first amendment was designed to protect.


The first amendment stops the government from passing laws which impugn speech, it otherwise protects nothing and no one.

Not familiar with the episode, but saying and doing stupid s*** can still get you fired and have you lose ad revenue.

The first amendment stops the government from controlling speech through regulation, it doesn't give anyone the right to be an a******, nor protect them from the repercussions incurred by being one.

The idea of "doxxing" is idiotic. Why should anyone be able to hide behind the anonymity of the internet?-AndreLeGeant

If the minimum amount of strength needed to be a useful soldier is the Male tests, then that's what women need to be able to do as well. Because that would be the minimum amount needed to be a good soldier.
Of course, it's not. Being a good soldier is in reality not all that depend on your exact level of physical strength, just reliant on being in reasonable physical shape at a level entirely feasible for men and women. The idea of physically being "army strong" has a lot more to do with selling soldiers the idea of themselves as badasses than any actual soldiering duties.
That's why the physical test is kind of a joke and why having different requirements for women isn't a big deal.

It does depend on your physical ability. A soldier that is out of shape is no good to anyone. The reason that you need a certain level of physical ability is quite literally to be strong enough to carry a person that is potentially downed. People with better physical strength can carry objects easier. It means that with a minimum requirement, they can absolutely ensure that their soldiers are as close to a minimum level of performance without worrying about variances between humans. It has nothing to do with them being "badasses." It's for the safety of themselves, and everyone else around them...Even athletes have to have a minimum health requirement and they are probably the most physically capable people humanity has to offer. Your ignorance is astounding.

See you say that but the reality is that women have proved themselves on the front time and time again. This is not a controversial. Women have served in theatres across the world for a long ass time.


Do you know what averages are? That means the standard woman is not as physically adept. There definitely exist women that push themselves to such a level. Most do not. And most men are not born at the level required anyways. They have to work for it. Men just make better gains than women. Hence why men are physically superior more often than not. Barring that, they have extra testosterone which makes them stronger under normal circumstances.

And in case you missed it, the joke is "let's pretend the Right's latest transbashing talking point is valid so that we can support transbashing without really doing it."


They didn't pretend anything. It was simply a joke about how THIS specific man was taking advantage of things to win. Even if they were pointing out that right wing points have a valid complaint here, I see nothing wrong with that. Not everything that stems from a "conservative" mindset is bad. Or are you going to say a nuclear family is a bad thing? Liberals aren't against it, but they certainly don't promote it nearly as much.

You.

Also this. It's satire of people that behave exactly like this.

I never denied this.

I’m saying that we have free speech. So allowing “hate speech” is simply a part of it.

Never. But if you're a comedian then you should at least try to be an equal-opportunity offender.

That's a pathetic answer. You can do better. Use your words.

It does no good to comment on How many people you've blocked. Just seems kind of asinine tbh.
