GLAAD Not Happy with SNL’s Estro-Maxxx Sketch

By

GLAAD has released a statement about this past weekend’s Estro-Maxxx commercial parody from SNL: “This segment cannot be defended as ‘just a joke’ because there was no ‘joke’ to speak of. The attempted comedy of the skit hinges solely on degrading the lives and experiences of transgender women. Holding people up for ridicule simply on the basis of their identity fuels a dangerous and hurtful climate and puts people in danger, especially given how infrequently the media shines a fair and accurate light on the lives of transgender people.”
