At this rate, Colbert might actually be held accountable in the near future for making transphobic jokes.
Go trigger warn some shit
That’s not transphobic, though. He’s making a point that because the LGBT agenda is “barreling forward at full-speed” that the B and T of LGBT is being left behind. Everyone is focusing on the L and the G that there are people who have no idea what the B and T even stand for. He’s not being transphobic or making a slight meant to make fun of or harm the bi and trans* community. He’s making a point that no one is focusing on them because they’re focusing on the lesbian and gay community.
Mother. Fucking. This.
People really need to realize that EVERYTHING Colbert says while on camera is satire.
Satire: The use of humor, irony, exaggeration, or ridicule to expose and criticize people’s stupidity or vices, particularly in the cotext of a play, novel, fiilm or other works.
He is not making a transphobic joke. He is not honestly saying that bi and trans people do not count/matter/exist. He is making humor in order to shed light on the fact that they are forgotten.
He is doing this to raise fucking awareness that there is more to LGBT than LG. He is raising a big flag that says “Hey, don’t forget about these guys. They count. They matter. Why aren’t you doing anything about them? Why aren’t they discussed?” He is not trying to say “They don’t matter.”
So please stop with the self righteous, self pity, “social justice” comments unless you know what you are talking about.
I do appreciate that Bisexual is matched with bacon. I rather enjoy bacon.
The sad thing is, I can actually imagine someone putting a trigger warning for cissexism and transphobia if they saw this.
I get so much second-hand embarrassment whenever someone doesn’t realize that he’s being satirical.
For the record, the search results weren’t bad:
… oh, I see.

When I think about you
I touch myself
oh my now there’s video
He actually counted…”1, 2, me.” I love this man. XD
Who Dela-wore It Better of the Day: [thanks, stephen!]
The only thing that could make this better is if touching the image made cheeseburgers shoot out of your computer (don’t bother, I tried). In lieu of cheeseburgers, here’s video of the photoshoot.
