Instead of Jerry Seinfeld acknowledging that people want his world to include them, he came out swinging with accusations of "political correctness" and insisting the sole factor in who got on the show was who was "funny" (thereby implying, whether deliberate or not, there aren't very many funny non-white comedians).

I have an Autism Spectrum Disorder. Before the proliferation of the smartphone, I was constantly screwing up even the most basic of social tenets and losing friends, if I ever made them to begin with. While Louis C.K. and his supporters assert that you need face to face contact and the ability to see another person's expressions to build empathy, I've found that occasionally removing the pressures of that contact has allowed me, for the first time in my life, to express all of the empathy that I have always had for my loved ones and fellow humans. It has allowed me to prove that I am a person.

I think the biggest ruse that women try to sell themselves, and each other, is that WE are aging naturally.

Louie isn't nearly the dad Cliff Huxtable was. He's divorced, doesn't own a house and is making it up as he goes.
