    Interestingly enough, there was no outrage when allowed media that sexualized young girls. Just another 'I'ma pick and choose what offends me and therefore, no one else should have/want it either" - you're not helping this community. In fact, you've done the exact opposite. Way to be "right", too bad you sacrificed your happiness and integrity.

    Black trans are Black first...They need to understand how this is rooted in white supremacy and how they are being used for their cause, just like most things that black people get used for...

    He literally makes fun of everyone. If you can’t handle someone else opinions then keep yourself in a closet until you grown thicker skin. If you want to be treated as equals then here it is. Equally being hated on by a COMEDIAN.

    What makes trans people more important or special then normal people ? Why must we put people up on pedestals.. remember not even twenty years ago trans people were hunted down.. now their worshipped. They are just people was what was always said before now they're like Gods..

    If trans people keep this up it will backfire on them so hard. Cause we see what they are really doing using Dave name to get a platform I thought before trans people should live what ever they wanted to live..... Now I just don't care

    So I just finished watching his special and after watching this here video…I don’t think we watched the same special. Or I am just THAT ignorant. Granted, I’m not one to offend easily so maybe that’s it too. I dunno.

    Man please....I will never refer to a man as a woman and a woman as a man just because they say so. Regardless of who they get to agree with them, they might not believe in God but I do and I'll have to account for my actions here.

    I watched maybe 5 minutes and knew where this show was heading and it was nowhere good!! If you make disparaging statements you are responsible for those statement and be prepared to accept the consequences of those who you offend!! 🤔
