GLAAD mad over Saturday Night Live skit

The Gay and Lesbian Alliance Against Defamation has the acronym GLAAD. But they hardly ever seem in a good mood, and are always outraged about something or other. Sometimes, they've got a point. But more often than not they are chucking tantrums over things that are trivial or completely benign.

Several weeks ago they were outraged over a Saturday Night Live ad parody that they believed was degrading to transgendered people. But apart from the fact that it was comedy, and therefore not meant to be taken seriously, the joke seemed to be on big business more than anything else.

Like so many groups on the PC left, GLAAD appear quite desperate to be offended.
