I get it because Helen Thomas is is ugly and looks like a man!

Har har har!

I could kind of understand parodying arguments that some people -- especially academics -- use to argue for trans rights, if they were clever or made a point. (And I haven't seen it yet.)

But if you really believe it's about mental illness, than yeah, I think you're being a total dick if you make fun of transgender people themselves.

Do you mock other people who have a mental illness? If not, then why is this OK?

Otherwise, I think there's something to be said for not being a dick or an asshole or whatever you want to call it when discussing these issues. But maybe that's just me...
