Comedian Ricky Gervais has apparently stirred the pot for questioning whether women should be forced to wax a biological man’s genitals.
In response to the recent “controversy” out of Canada, where a man who identifies as a woman has sued a beauty parlor for refusing to wax him in the testicular area, Gervais laid the smackdown on the woke-scolds for suggesting that anyone has a human right to have his or her genitals touched by another person.
“How did we get to the point where women are having to fight for the right to choose whether they wax some big old hairy cock & balls or not?” Gervais tweeted, according to Newsbusters. “It is not a human right to have your meat & 2 veg polished.”
Almost immediately, the SJW trolls were out in force to condemn him as a “transphobe” for suggesting the idea that a biological man should not be able to use the power of the state to coerce a woman into touching his private region.
“Ricky Gervais is a transphobe who (barely) disguises his bigotry as feminism. Real feminism includes all women, including trans women,” said activist Amy Martin.
“Surely real feminism also covers a woman’s right not to have to wax someone’s knob & bollocks if they don’t want to,” Gervais responded to his foes.
“Ricky Gervais will die at some point in our lifetime. Just something to cheer you up this morning,” said one particularly grim Twitter user.
“Is anyone really surprised that Ricky Gervais, who made a living out of cruel humour that always required someone’s humiliation (his own or others) has turned out to be a TERF? His humour is not that different to Glinner’s,” said another.
Later, Gervais got the last laugh when he tweeted a headline from Newsbusters, which he deemed to be the “best headline ever.”
The phrase TERF refers to Trans-Exclusionary Radical Feminist. Author J.K. Rowling also recently fell subject to the hate mob for allegedly holding TERF values.
Though a self-described “champagne socialist” and an avowed atheist, Ricky Gervais has taken the politically incorrect stance on a number of free speech issues recently, such as when he condemned activists for throwing milkshakes at right-wingers.
“It’s interesting that the people who believe that throwing a milkshake in someone’s face shouldn’t be considered assault are often the same people who believe that ‘saying things’ should be,” the comedian tweeted earlier this month.
In response to his critics, Gervais later said that people of both political persuasions will only bring their “cause into disrepute” if they embrace “violent factions.”
“Whatever side you’re on politically, ‘left’ or ‘right’, you don’t need violent factions joining you or representing you,” Gervais tweeted. “They bring your cause into disrepute. They don’t even care about your cause, they’re just in it for the violence. Denounce them.”
