Answering questions like that has no tacit implication that the questions are somehow acceptable for social conversation, and it's just as absurd to shame Jay for openly discussing her body and experiences as it would be to shame activists for having similar conversations on panels. The subject of that interview on this week's season premiere was adult actress Bailey Jay, who identifies as transsexual. If you're not familiar, Schumer's show is a mixture of sketch comedy, clips of her stand-up, random interviews with people in the street, and a short interview segment with an interesting guest called "Amy Goes Deep". Even the wording of that criticism functions as an essential attack on the humanity of sex workers, declaring that "trans person" and "trans porn star" are somehow separate, exclusive categories. Sex workers of all stripes are no different from other trans people, and their contributions to our discourse are just as valid.

However, Schumer's interview with Bailey Jay, a transgender adult film actress , has resulted in some accusing her of being tone-deaf on trans issues.

When Schumer asks about her husband's sexual orientation, Jay is quick to correct her that her husbands still identifies as straight, poking holes in the constant assertions that men who date trans women must secretly be gay. Even the wording of that criticism functions as an essential attack on the humanity of sex workers, declaring that "trans person" and "trans porn star" are somehow separate, exclusive categories. Without a doubt, the interview is quite blunt and without much subtlety, but that's absolutely in-character for Schumer in her show, and it doesn't appear to phase Jay, who simply smiles and giggles through the whole interview.
