I just saw in the Guardian that Gervais has a small section on transgenderism in his new show.

I will try get a link...

I'm sure the TRAs will be lining up to attack Gervais? Why not outrage yet?

I agree with him entirely, nothing is off limits for comedy. And Jenner deserves every pop she gets, to be honest.
It's not a story really.

Jenner is a twat and deserves everything he gets.

Cot death jokes?

I'd argue some things are off limits

Yeah, I don't think I could laugh at a cot death joke. Although, I guess that's kind of why it's funny? sad

There are some things I would consider to be off limits - 'jokes' about dead or missing children, disabled children, rape for example. If the only rule of comedy is that it has to be funny, surely these things are ruled out naturally?
