Watch John Oliver's Must See Segment About Transgender Discrimination From Last Week Tonight!

no title

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!

John Oliver has made his move to HBO a hit by being exceptional at distilling complex sociopolitical issues into small, digestible segments — with jokes.

But the conflict between security and freedom could be the trickiest ongoing issue in the United States today.

We mean, Captain America's debate on the topic ended with so many explosions, it broke S.H.I.E.L.D.

John Oliver's Last Week Tonight Renewed For MORE Seasons… And The HBO Host Has An Idea Who Jon Stewart's Replacement SHOULD Be!

no title

We LOVE this man AND his accent!

John Oliver will be the first one to admit that he owes everything to Jon Stewart and it would seem like Mr. Oliver would be the perfect replacement for the departing Daily Show host.

However, when the host of Last Week Tonight appeared on The Tonight Show this past Tuesday, Jimmy Fallon reiterated the news that John's HBO show has just been picked up for two more seasons on the premium channel.

Which means John Oliver will definitely be sticking around there until at least the end of a fourth season in 2017!

Here's what the president of programming of HBO Michael Lombardo said in a statement:
