The Transgender community is getting far too much negative and demeaning publicity. First, There was Saturday Night Live on NBC last weekend and now early this morning, The Late Late Show With Craig Ferguson on CBS aired the following skit. It is readily apparent CBS does not "give a crap" about Transgender people.
Shame on Ferguson, his writers and producers and CBS for allowing this trash to be aired. Would they allow "comedians" to appear in black face makeup? I think not!
The media is sending the message that Trans people are less than human. They are saying we are objects of ridicule and should be treated with mean spirited attempts at humor.
If this angers you the way it has me, email Craig Ferguson and CBS. Demand an on-air apology, take down the You Tube video, delete from reruns and any future viewings on Hulu or similar websites.
It might be very useful to review The Late Late Show's sponsors and complain to them.
Hurt them where it hurts the most - in the wallet!
