Nice work, Jon Stewart, for making these bigots the 7th grade bullies we know they are.
It’s great that he’s supporting chaz, but I feel like Jon Stewart hasn’t been so great on trans issues or he is at least very late to the game. I don’t believe there has ever been a standard interview with a single trans-identified activist/writer/actor/scholar/anything on the show who could talk about their experience on The Daily Show (correct me if I’m wrong, please). Maybe chaz will be the first eventually, but I feel like there are plenty of people to talk to, but they don’t for reason.
P.S. I don’t count the piece they did in 2007 on susan stanton, since I feel that at the time she had only just come out, limiting her experience and time to reflect. They have never had someone with at trans experience answer jon’s questions on the show and get a chance to speak for themselves.
