Last night was the CMAs, which traditionally features hosts Brad Paisley and Carrie Underwood performing a medley where they mock recently news items. It’s pretty harmless fun usually. This is the CMAs we’re talking about here. Not South Park. Oh, but don’t worry. There was outrage too!
No, they aren’t outraged over the Miss Piggy joke. You may have missed it, SJWs didn’t…
I thought by now it’s been thoroughly communicated that Caitlyn Jenner’s name is just that, Caitlyn, and a person who has always identified as a woman. It’s offensive and problematic to say, “Bruce Jenner is a babe now.” By referring to her with the wrong name and implying that something about Caitlyn’s gender has changed, the joke belittles the struggles — both personal and in the outside world — that transgender people go through every day. There is so much more to coming out as transgender that it’s overly simplistic and demeaning to refer to a public transition as “becoming a babe.”

@lovinglife_17 comment, NOT a joke. Brad Paisley made a transphobic comment saying "Bruce Jenner is a babe now."

Brad Paisley and Carrie Underwood just identified Caitlyn Jenner as "Bruce". The CMA's condones Transphobia apparently.

The actual soul-crushing, privilege-waving, minority-stomping, offending line? “McDonald’s all day now, Bruce Jenner’s a babe now.”
When reached for comment, Brad Paisley said, “LOLWUT?”
Here’s the thing: they’re not even making fun of Bruce/Caitlyn Jenner here. They’re simply noting the
sex gender-change that has taken place in the public eye. They even used the term “babe” as to be jovially complimentary. I think they were being overly-gracious with that.
Because guess what? Jenner’s not really what most men would call a babe. Even if he’d ever been born a woman. If Caitlyn Jenner walked into a bar, most men would look past the bizarrely botoxed, oddly broad-shouldered, man-voiced porcelain doll to scan the joint for the real babes.
A little harsh? Maybe. But Brad Paisley and Carrie Underwood didn’t say that. I did. Direct your hate tweets to @SCrowder accordingly and allow me to get back to my main point.
Brad and Carrie’s only offense here is merely acknowledging that Bruce Jenner transitioned to a “woman” at all! They didn’t single Caitlyn out for mean-spirited jokes. They didn’t use newly-deemed “hate-words” like “tranny.” Their crime here was saying “Hey that famous guy, who was always a guy, is now a babe.”
… and then they moved on with the show. But leftists can’t. Because today’s SJW, leftist America is a place where all fun is strictly forbidden.
