Bill Burr was on Conan last night, and made a lot of people mad and/or sad and/or say "ugh."

The comedian joked about Caitlyn Jenner's transition, lamenting how he never had a chance to get used to the idea of Caitlyn's identity before she transitioned. He also made light of the importance of using people's preferred gender pronouns in a shticky, I'm-just-an-old-white-guy-how-can-I-be-expected-to-remember-it's-"she" bit. 

Even though there were some funny observations about Keeping Up With The Kardashians, Burr's jokes were generally dismissive of the huge struggles that transgender people face from attitudes like this—way bigger struggles than being asked to call someone by a different name and pronoun.
