Transparent creator called SNL’s It’s Pat sketches “hateful” — and Julia Sweeney says “I probably don’t disagree”
SNL alum Sweeney was asked about Jill Soloway calling her famous character a “hateful, hateful, awful thing to do to non-binary people — to create this character that the whole world laughed at openly,” saying: “All the jokes were about people’s reaction to someone they didn’t know was a man or a woman. That’s what was funny. Pat didn’t feel strange or weird or wrong — and frankly I never have thought of Pat as being transgender. That character is simply a gender we have yet to figure out!"
