Gervais and Chappelle were saying different things.

Chappelle denies that transgender is a valid thing to be.

Gervais said he doesn't fucking care if you are trans or not.

One denied your existence, the other doesn't care. I think that's an important distinction.

(Of course, Gervais being a straight white middle aged man from a western country has the privilege of not having to care about others. Which is problematic, as well. But we know he knows that, too.)

Did you watch the Gervais special? He does several minutes on how he thinks it's fucked up that saying "women don't have penises" is controversial.
