SNL Contribues to Trans-phobia with ‘Estro-Maxx’ Parody

By Amibkaplanlcsw

Yes, I know its comedy, but NBC’s Saturday Night Live TV show aired aSNL contribues to trans-phobia with ‘Estro-Maxx’ parody ‘commercial’ for feminizing hormones who’s sole comedic purpose was to laugh at trans women during their transition.  I think it send the message that its OK to laugh at transsexuals and contributes to trans-phobia.

Trans-phobia and any phobia is no small matter.  It creates an ubiquitous message that its OK to make fun of gender variant people.  It leads to shame, hiding, fear and anxiety.
