One thing we’re reminded of in this clip from Sarah Silverman’s podcast is the need for the term, “cis women.” The thinking goes that trans women are women, period; but if you are a woman who was born female, they’ve come up with a term to distinguish you: cis woman. The point is, there’s a reason that there are words to distinguish one from the other, and that reason is they’re not the same thing. One has a distinct advantage in athletic competition, for example.
California gubernatorial candidate Caitlyn Jenner is in hot water with the LGBTQ community for coming about against biological males playing in girls’ sports, and Silverman thinks that’s ridiculous. Don’t tall girls have an advantage over short girls?
I have a podcast. Here’s a clip from this week about Caitlyn Jenner pic.twitter.com/VLr774Y19V

Gad Saad caught a clip of Silverman and gave it a thumbs-down:
The more that I watch this clip, the more I am repulsed by @SarahKSilverman in every possible way. Her smugness, her ignorance, her meanness, her nasal voice, her facial grimaces, her stupidity, her self-assuredness, her wokeness. Ebola has more redeeming qualities, truly. https://t.co/VBwxtNSlKU

Even when she's said something I agreed with I find her delivery and manner annoying.

I remember a couple months ago she had a brief moment where she realized how poisonous her tribe had become.
I knew it wouldn’t last.

She's basically a flat earther

The exaggerated facial expressions of someone who doesn't believe what they're saying. Like a child pretending to be shocked that half the cookies are missing from the jar.

I was trying to put my feelings about this into words. You captured it perfectly.

Best tweet of the weekend.

Agreed. But then again she has a history of doing this and being disingenuous with the facts.

Listen to the lived experiences of someone who knows the situation better than you do. Their opinions hold more value!
Oh wait.. not that one! 🙄

Why don’t we have sports divided by height and weight? Said the woman who has never seen a single sport played competitively.
— Alf Valenti (@AlfVal) May 8, 2021
I was thinking about that. There are many sports divided by that. 😂

She was never funny to me. But always seemed sensible back in the day. Then I got older and, well, so did she.
— ☭ Napoleon ☭ (@WokeKrieg) May 8, 2021
She's like the Kardashian, but with a big mouth instead. Both trying to get attention from the size of it rather than the content it yeilds
— The Real Abraham (@TheRealAbraham8) May 8, 2021
She’s tone deaf and running her trap. That’s what ignorant people do. Then name call people who use facts to disagree with them. World is upside down.
— Kelly Johnson (@kellyjman) May 8, 2021
I have no clue who this is but she certainly has a parasite in her mind

Nothing makes me cringe more than the arrogant woke.

There are few people I would consider experts on the topic of trans athletes in sports but Jenner would be top of my list
— Jay Kowal (@jaycola) May 8, 2021
I've always wondered if these people actually believe the things that say or they do it just to feel on a moral ground and virtuous, thinking that supporting certain ideas will give them that. Even if they don't actually believe it.
— Barbs (@BarbsLM) May 8, 2021
She has always repulsed me. Just not a good person.

Let's throw @SarahKSilverman in an MMA ring with a trans woman who went through male puberty and let's see what happens. In the name of equality of course…
— That Ty Guy (@ItsThatTyGuy) May 8, 2021
easy on the personal insults,Gad. I disagree with her position and the way you verbally attack her.
— Deborah Rosen (@rosen_deborah) May 8, 2021
You're an imbecile with no spine. Sarah attacks Caitlyn by calling her a "transphobic twat" and you're worried about my "insult." Blocked.
— Gad Saad (@GadSaad) May 8, 2021
What was she thinking for a while after the word "twat", before shrugging whatever it was, off? Was it a moment of self awareness of how much of a twat she is being perhaps?
