Stephen Colbert Discusses Trans Issues, Janet Mock, Carmen Carrera: WATCH

Janet Mock

“When it comes to transgender issues, I don’t know what to say to these people,” admits Stephen Colbert.  Attempting to wrap his mind around the complexities of trans-identity, Colbert (in his best mock-republican character) tries to tackle everything from RuPaul’s Drag Race to Transformers.  Even our girl Carmen Carrera gets a shout-out!

Luckily, Janet Mock proceeds to school him on precisely how trans issues should be dealt with.

To refresh your memory: Janet Mock caused a bit of a stir this month when she called out journalist Piers Morgan for his use of inappropriate language when describing her transition.  Now, Mock appears on everyone’s favorite conservative faux-news show The Colbert Report.  Somehow we doubt meta-arch-conservative Stephen Colbert will show her the sensitivity she expects to receive from the media.
