All this time I thought the cast of Monty Python were open-minded and tolerant liberals. Heck, one of them was even gay (RIP Graham Chapman). But in retrospect, they were just another group of cis-white transphobic bigots. How else can you explain their prediction of modern transgenderism to a “T”?
Call them Nostradamus. We won’t even get into the fact that there are no non-cis white males in Python to begin with. Just sit back and soak in the micro aggressions…
STAN: I want to be a woman. From now on, I want you all to call me ‘Loretta’.
LORETTA: It’s my right as a man.
JUDITH: Well, why do you want to be Loretta, Stan?
LORETTA: I want to have babies.
REG: You want to have babies?!
LORETTA: It’s every man’s right to have babies if he wants them.
REG: But… you can’t have babies.
LORETTA: Don’t you oppress me.
REG: I’m not oppressing you, Stan. You haven’t got a womb! — Where’s the fetus going to gestate?! You going to keep it in a box?!
All joking aside (because Monty Python is generally hysterical), this seemingly innocent sketch would have to be declared transphobic hate speech today. Heck, even the actors in the sketch would probably protest it now. Comedians have turned from anti-authoritarian satirists to PC appeasers. Don’t believe me? Check out some comments found recently on the PlannedParenthood Facebook page.

Yes… men can get pregnant too. For serious. There’s really only one thing left to do: denounce anything we’ve ever found funny… ever.
Liberals: turning America into a nation where all humor and/or fun is strictly prohibited.
