Saturday Night Live has been stirring up debate thanks to a controversial skit that aired on the show last weekend.
The Gay and Lesbian Alliance Against Defamation (GLAAD) is asking viewers to take action against NBC over SNL's mock-commercial for "Once Daily Estro-Maxx," a fake hormone-replacment pill for transgender women. Shot in the style of many pharmaceutical ads aimed at women, the "transgender" consumers in this skit are represented by cisgender male actors in what GLAAD calls "dehumanizing" light. According to GLAAD President Jarrett Barrios, "The attempted comedy of the skit hinges solely on degrading the lives and experiences of transgender women."
