People will claim this is innocuous satire, but they’re categorically incorrect. Effective satire exposes, lampoons and subverts intolerance and oppressive convictions.
This is the antithesis of legitimate satire and does the exact opposite; it demonises trans people & exacerbates current difficulties they face.
These false depictions of trans people perpetuate pernicious views of them and Rockstar are worthy of admonishment for brazenly targeting a marginalised group of people.
