Father Ted Transphobic?!

Has anyone been keeping an eye on Graham Linehan on Twitter? I tried following him but had to stop when I got too upset; he constantly deadnames and misgenders transwomen, all the while insisting he’s not transphobic!

Hard to think it’s the same guy who gave us Black Books, The IT Crowd & Father Ted; all fantastic comedies, though I shall never again be able to watch any of them, now I know what he’s like! Though perhaps HE should watch them more often, especially the bit where Father Ted taps a brand-new car with a hammer just to get out a tiny dent, then carries on tapping till it’s wrecked!

That’s just the kind of perspective he’s showing on trans issues right now!
