Do you think that this clip could be considered Pro-Trans, or "Transphobic"?

    I really cant figure out if they're trying to be insulting to trans people, or not? I'm confused.

    Its a clip from the Monty Python movie The Life of Brian, and it was filmed in 1979.

    Thoughts?

    Considering its the 70s

    I think it's more pro than anything else. Today it's just bland, and boring.

    It's Monty Python, it's not really meant to be anything. XD
    Monty Python has no true point other than to make people laugh. And it was the 70's, so it was a whole different time period and media.
    I suppose if I had to choose it'd be pro. But that's because I adore Monty Python.

    One of the Monty Python people was gay, i know that. (I just dont know what one of them, heh)

    And i dont see this as transphobic. I dont see it as pro-trans either. I see it, like Jazz said, as comedy from the 70's (that for that time period was most likely pro-trans because it was not a widely addressed issue in TV or movies at the time)

    Graham Chapman was :slight_smile:

    & yeah, I agree with you. I just wanted to see what other people thought as well.

    I don't see it as transphobic. I think it's hilarious actually. xD

    If I was trans, I'd probably love it even more.
