On the latest episode of “The Rubin Report,” BlazeTV host Dave Rubin talked about liberal comedian Sarah Silverman’s bizarre rant over California gubernatorial candidate Caitlyn Jenner’s opposition to biological boys who are trans participating in all-female school sports.
As both a former Olympic athlete and transgender female, Jenner has taken a strong stance on the controversial issue.
“This is a question of fairness, that’s why I oppose biological boys who are trans competing in girls sports in school,” Jenner told TMZ. “It just isn’t fair, and we have to protect girls sports in our schools.”
In response, Silverman went on an unhinged rant during her podcast, accusing Jenner of “transphobia” and calling the prominent transgender celebrity “such a t***.”
“A trans girl is a girl. She should have the same rights as cis girls,” Silverman said. “What, you think a trans girl is too strong? What about tall girls as opposed to short girls? What about boys in high school who are teeny tiny and their teammates have already hit puberty and are shaving? Why don’t you just have co-ed sports divided by weight and height, you know? This is so dumb.
“They are legislating this s*** without one single example of how this plays out. This is not worrying about girls’ sports. Uh, believe me. There are better ways to worry about girls’ sports. This is not worrying. This is not concern for girls’ sports. It’s transphobia, full stop. It’s such a bummer when such a prominent trans woman is such a t***.”
After sharing a video clip from Silverman’s podcast, Rubin asked, “How does anyone watch that? It’s such an unpleasant way of speaking — her certitude about something when she doesn’t know what she’s talking about.
“All Caitlyn wants, and all most sane people want, is to not have biological boys competing with biological girls in sports … saying that makes you transphobic?” Dave added.
“And also, the word transphobic — that you have an irrational fear of trans people — it seems to me that Sarah Silverman is transphobic. […] When Caitlyn Jenner first came out as trans four years ago, she was a hero to all of these people. But then she committed the cardinal sin of woke-ism. She dared start saying what she actually believes, and now she is the enemy. So, it is you, Sarah Silverman, who is transphobic because you have an irrational fear of trans people who think for themselves. Guess what, Sarah Silverman. Not all trans people have to think the way you think they should think. Thus, you are the bigot in this case.”
