TRANSGENDERS to ADAM CAROLLA

Come Hang With Us

8/18/2011 12:30 AM PDT BY TMZ STAFF

0817-adam-corolla-tranny.EX
Adam Carolla still has a shot at making friends with the transgender community -- because TMZ has learned, a prominent transexual dating website has offered to help the radio host redeem himself after his anti-LGBT rant.

The site -- TrannyDate.com -- sent a personal letter to Carolla recently, asking him to join the staff at TD for a day to help him understand "why people do in fact care about us."

Adam spewed some anti-LGBT garbage on his podcast last week -- claiming, "When did we start giving a sh*t about these [transgender] people?"

No word yet on whether Adam plans to grab the, uh ... olive branch.

Very classy way to handle things...I hope Adam takes him up on their offer. I was pretty opposed to transgendered until a new colleague of mine was revealed to be trans. She is a very effective professional. She is direct and honest in a profession where those qualities are not commonplace. It costs me nothing to use female gendered pronouns when dealing with her and shows some common courtesy and respect towards her. That is all that the trans community is really asking from most of us...common courtesy and respect. How difficult is that?

So people that suffer from apotemnophilia, are we going to cater to them. Seems an arm and a leg is about the same as a penis, yet trannies are deemed normal. Give me a break, who decides where the frigging line is drawn?

1. Adam Carolla is a mediocre hack. 2. I will always fight for the rights of my gay brothers and sisters. 3. Transgender = Mental Illness and Body Mutilation. PERIOD.

I've got nothing against transgenders but, really, if you do a DNA test on them is their DNA changed? No and isn't that what determines if you are male or female?

Hey TMZ, it wasn't an anti-LGBT comment, it was an anti-T comment. Nice broad brushstrokes there.

All you people bashing TG's are idiots that needs to take this site up on its offer and see what they are really about. The stupidity in these comments is alarming.

well see, i'm an armchariapist, and what adam is really unconschizously reacting to here is, that all these angry hostile misogynist, female hating, female-envy males are ripping femininity or the essence of female gender and sexuality to bloody hatefilled pieces, thereby calling themselves a 'protected' subculture ("t r a n s g e n d e r"). that is what these 't r a n s g e n d e r s'...are failing to see themselves as the perpetrators, instead of the victims.

When did things said in a comedy club become serious? When did people start taking everything so seriously.

He's an evil intolerant bigot. What a shame he's spreading his ignorance to his kids.

While I commend this brave site for stepping up I cant believe they use the word Tranny in their name. They should know TS people do not want to be called tranny.

Missy, Chuck, Wrath, Granny Linda, en Todo, you all need to get a clue! Your asinine ignorance is fully some of the stupidest crap I've seen in a looong time...

When you haven't the slightest education or knowledge of a subject, the wisest thing to do is keeping your f***ing mouth shut. That way when people answer you in your face, there won't be that echo through the vast emptyness of your skull.

You need context for what he said. The comment in reference to politics and how as a minority TG people make up an insignificant number of voters to be worth putting political effort into. Lets be honest, politicians don't give a S*** about atheists and they make up 10-15% of the population so why would they care about TG people who make up less the 1%. Please people calm down. Yes he should go visit the people at that site but only cause it would make compelling radio.
