He couldn't be more on point!
John Oliver delivered one of the best breakdowns about transgender discrimination we've heard!
In the 16 minute segment, Oliver starts off pointing out the insensitive nature in which people — from Larry King to Barbara Walters — have interviewed transgender people.

He then makes sure to very clearly define "transgender" while giving his input on the media's curiosity by saying:
Transgender people have a gender identity that differs from the one they were assigned at birth, and that gender identity is not the same as sexual orientation. Gender identity is who you are, sexual orientation is who you love. Some transgender people do undergo hormone therapy or sexual reassignment surgery as part of their transition; some do not. And interestingly, their decision on this matter is, medically speaking, none of your fucking business.
From here, the late night host points to specific stories where transgendered people have been shamed in one way or another. He covers various stories and how they relate to shaming in politics such as Mike Huckabee disgusting misunderstanding of what it means to be transgender — in military service such as the case of an Iraqi soldier who feels more at home and "on vacation" because they essentially not held to the same social norms as they are back home — and even at the DMV where a some transgender people were asked to remove makeup and wigs.
Make sure you ch-ch-check out the whole segment (below) as it's not only HIGH-larious for the light that John brings to it, but is EXTREMELY informative and drives home the point that "transgenders still face a host of obstacles" and we need to continually strive for equality!

Larry also tried to see if those Machine Gun Kelly rumors had any truth behind them, but Amber wasn't quick to divulge any info on that — but she didn't say no!
We know we're always gonna ship Wiz and Amber!

Indiana just passed the Religious Freedom Restoration Act after Governor Mike Pence signed it into law, and people are not happy!
Because the thrust of the new law is that businesses are now legally free to discriminate based on sexual orientation and gender identity as long as they claim their religion is against it.

But not all businesses want to turn people away based on prejudice. The NCAA and Gen Con have already threatened to lessen their presence or pull out of the state entirely.
Yep, the jocks AND the nerds are against it! LOLz!
But those aren't the only strange bedfellows this deplorable bill is making! Celebs from Miley Cyrus to Hillary Clinton have come out against the law on social media.

This divorce happened a while ago, so we guess he feels comfortable enough these days to talk about it.
Ryan Phillippe was recently asked some personal questions about family by Larry King on Larry King Now on Friday and the actor did NOT shy away from discussing his and Reese Witherspoon's divorce.
