Variety, a White Male Oppression Tourist, and the GOAT

Dave Chappelle is a stand-up comedian, actor, writer and producer. He has won numerous awards, including five Emmys, three Grammys and the prestigious Mark Twain Prize. His unique style of razor-sharp, satirical comedy has earned him a place on Rolling Stone’s list of "50 Best Stand Up Comics of All Time".

His sixth and final Netflix special, The Closer, is causing controversy thanks to material concerning the gender identity debate.

With jokes about pronouns - “One ‘they’ or many ‘theys’?” - defence of JK Rowling and acknowledging the reality of biology, he declares, “I’m team TERF!

He points out that he “Never had a problem with transgender people”, adding, “If you listen to what I’m saying, clearly, my problem has always been with white people… All I ask of your community, with all humility: Will you please stop punching down on my people.”

Right on cue, as soon as The Closer went to air, a white trans-identified male came crashing in, all hyperbole blazing, to rail against Chappelle’s so-called ‘transphobia’.

John “Jaclyn” Moore is a TV executive, a career forged prior to his newly discovered ‘gender identity’. He was a writer and co-showrunner on Netflix series, Dear White People. On Wednesday he announced on social media that he isn’t going to work for the streaming service again, accusing it of “Promoting and profiting from dangerous transphobic content”.

Variety interviewed Moore about his decision and allowed him to bellyache, at length, about Chappelle’s ‘dangerous rhetoric’. The article was, of course, accompanied by photos of Moore performing the coy head tilt and winsome expression we’ve come to expect when entitled white males opine about being The Most Oppressed.

Moore began his ‘transition’ or, to use his words, dress up, less than a year ago.

On December 17th 2020, Moore posted this photograph of himself, sporting a full beard, to his Instagram account.

Just three days later he posted “Hi. I’m a girl.” and started demanding female pronouns.

In his Variety interview, Moore maintains that Chappelle’s ‘rhetoric and language’ make him feel unsafe and claims to be have been physically attacked when using a women’s bathroom.

Moore is 6 feet 5 inches tall (even without his heels). It’s hard to imagine any woman daring to challenge his presence in a ladies’ room when he towers over everyone in there.

Has it occurred to Moore that his presence in their bathroom might cause women to feel ‘unsafe’?

Moore went on to claim that Chappelle’s material is the reason why he isn’t seen as a ‘real woman’. He said, “People are laughing at this joke and they’re agreeing that it’s absurd to call me a woman.

The reason people don’t see John as a ‘real woman’ is because he isn’t one. He's a man who has watched too much pornography, a fact made patently obvious by the photographs he posts on social media. Like this picture, posted only a few months ago, of his male genitalia barely contained in sheer lilac panties.

Or this one, even more recent, of his crown jewels crammed into tiny red bikini briefs.

And then there's his ejaculating ‘girl-dick’ tattoo.

Moore’s entire Insta feed is littered with photographs of him performing an overtly sexual and horribly infantilised version of femininity.

There are plenty of ‘felt cute’ and ‘looking hot’ comments to accompany his porn-soaked selfie images of womanhood. A man in his 30s is play-acting as an anime schoolgirl.

Yet he has the audacity to claim its Chappelle’s comedy that is ‘dangerous’.

Moore claims he doesn’t want Chappelle to be ‘cancelled’. Yet he’s just announced that he won’t work at Netflix again while his special is being aired. “I don’t know how it got passed… I don’t want to work with a company that promotes that speech.” Sounds like a demand for cancellation to me.

A white man who LARPs as a woman and worked on a show that was supposed to be by and about people of colour is claiming that a black comedian is oppressing him. What a time to be alive.
