Bill Maher And Milo Yiannopoulos Find Common Ground In Their Bigotry Towards Transgender People

Bill Maher And Milo Yiannopoulos Find Common Ground In Their Bigotry Towards Transgender People February 18, 2017

Milo Yiannopoulos does a great job of saying terrible things to get attention and Bill Maher was happy give Milo a platform by inviting him as a guest on Real Time. You can see a main segment in the video below.

One of the most cringeworthy parts of the show was when Maher asked Yiannopoulos about transgender issues. Yiannopoulos called transgender people mentally ill and were “disproportionately involved” in sex crimes. Both of these statements by Milo are completely wrong when we look at the evidence as transgender people are actually the victims of sex crimes much more often than other groups. Milo used his incorrect assertion to argue that transgender people should not be allowed in the bathroom they want to use.

Instead of Maher challenging Milo on this, he actually said it was “not unreasonable” and then asked the rest of his panel what they thought about “weirdos peeing.” Beyond just agreeing with him, Maher even praised Milo for appearing like a young Christopher Hitchens.

Unfortunately, it seems like Yiannopoulos is only going to keep getting attention as he will drive up ratings for saying awful things. I was very glad Larry Wilmore was there to call Milo out. If people are not going to ignore Milo, then we need to at least call out his BS when we see it.
