Come On Caitlyn Jenner, You Should Know Better Then That.

Ellen Degeneras recently had Caitlyn Jenner, the newest LGBTQ+ superstar on her show. While Caitlyn certainly is new to the transgendered world and is trying her best to make a huge difference in the way the LGBTQ+ community and transpeople as a whole are treated, some of her beliefs are still very confusing. Like still affiliating herself with the Republican Party, a party who is more intolerant then tolerant to love and lifestyles that don't conform to their cookie cutter norm. Which is why it is unfortunately unsurprising that Caitlyn's response on marriage equality honestly leaves a lot to be desired. Check out her response in the video below!
Like, what the fuck Caitlyn Jenner?
I understand, transitioning from a once very conservative male takes time and a lot of change, both mentally and physically. Caitlyn Jenner grew up in an era that was even less accepting of the gay community as well as living in a very conservative household. Traditions and beliefs that are ground into your childhood brain are hard to ignore.

However, equality in marriage really should be a no brainer.

But here is where the problem actually begins. Caitlyn told Ellen that:

โ€˜I donโ€™t ever want to stand in front of anybodyโ€™s happiness.โ€™ Thatโ€™s not my job, okay? If that word โ€“ โ€˜marriageโ€™ โ€“ is really, really that important to you, I can go with it."

Hate to break it to you Caitlyn, but it is marriage equality is your fucking job. Marriage is way more then a word. Marriage equality represents the government viewing two peoples love as legitimate, as equal, and as worthy of respect, rights, and the damn word of marriage! It is basic human rights! As the first EVER transgendered to have an entire show broadcasted to the world to show the trials and triumph of transitioning to the world IT IS YOUR JOB TO CARE. As a winner of the Arthur Ashe Award for Courage, which is one of the most prestigious awards in sports, not just for her athletic achievements, but for your very public struggle to come out as transgender IT IS YOUR JOB TO STAND UP FOR YOUR COMMUNITY!

And has the most talked about transperson ever, it is your fucking job to make sure the right message is being broadcasted.

So please Caitlyn, for the sake of the LGBTQ+ community everywhere educate yourself. You are starting a completely new life and it is hard, and it is scary and we get that you will mess up sometimes. So take some time away from your TV show if you have too, speak to more trans people who have struggled their entire lives, take a class if you have too, because if you continue to spew bullshit that is "traditionalist" and borderline intolerant of the community you are suppose to be representing, you will single handedly take the world back generations every hour your show airs.

just like everyone else, she is doing what makes her happy. if those are her views, let her believe them! oh and whoever wrote this, marriage is not apart of our rights btw. educate yourself. all of you are being so hypocryitical wanting for people to accept who you love and what gender you believe you are suppose to be. she is accepting all of you. she is saying to love and be whoever/whatever makes you happy. if marriage makes you happy, DO IT. you are all on the same side, quit fighting about the tint of the clouds.
@LizArnone she is so wrapped up in her own self importance, I think she perhaps forgets how much power and influence she has. I have no doubt going through the kind of change she has gone through is massively traumatic and difficult, but she has put herself firmly in the public eye. She has the focus of the world on her - she needs to use it wisely or people will tire of her and she will shink into irrelevance.
She is fighting for her right and for others like her but is also similar to how Trump's personality is.. the arrogance.
wow....that is disappointing....she has so much influence but she's not using it in the right manner!
@InPlainSight exactly !!! She had a huge influence and can help shed some much needed light on trans life but if she isn't going to do it properly then she honestly needs to get out of the public eye and focus on herself

In light of the tragedy in Orlando, I want to make sure that everyone in this community regardless of your sexual orientation, your religious beliefs, or your political opinions, knows that you're loved. Everyone deserves to love and be loved, to live their lives how they wish, and to feel safe being themselves. Here are a few songs of encouragement, and I hope that anyone affected (which, really, should be all Americans) find peace.

Why? Why not? We did nothing wrong Why? Why not? Weโ€™re so in love Ailee - Heaven You taught me love in this harsh world I am happy with you alone Heaven Heaven Heaven Heaven Heaven If we're together we will never cry never never cry Heaven Heaven Heaven Heaven Heaven Forever, together never gonna be alone BTS - Save Me Listen to my heartbeat It calls you whenever it wants to Because within this pitch black darkness You are shining so brightly Go spread love today, and every day.
Makeup Artist Draws Kim Kardashian On Her Chin
If you think Michael Jordan crying meme is hilarious, the Kim Kardashian one is twice as funny. As much as we love Kim K, she will never get out of this one -- ever. Let's be honest, her cry was monumental and quite hideous -- then again, who really has a lovely looking smile anyway? While Michael Jordan has been getting the most shine lately for his crying meme, it didn't take long before someone came along and put the infamous Kim Kardashian meme on the map. You've seen it on blogs, you've seen it on cellphones, and you've even seen it on shirts, but have you ever seen it on someone's chin? If not, today happens to be your lucky day. A talented makeup artist decided it would be cool if she drew cry baby Kim on her chin and believe it or not, it actually came out looking rather amazing. You cannot tell me that makeup is not a form of art. Laura Jenkinson is a makeup artist known for recreating images on her chin using her ever so amazing makeup skills and if you thought this was pretty awesome, just wait until you see her Donald Trump drawing -- yikes. In the meantime, keep scrolling and check out the images below. How epic is this? Looks just like Kim. Seriously. Of course, you can't have Kim without Kylie and her new lips. Amazing! Looks just like Jay-Z. Big lips and all. He has that same sinister look he always has on his face. Donald Gump. Ooops, I mean't Trump. Hey Everyone, look it's Finn from Adventure Time! And of course, I had to save the best for last and for @alywoah. Tacos! How amazingly odd are these works of art? Which one is your favorite? @alywoah @danidee @humairaa @cindystran @sophiamor @buddyesd @marshalledgar @YourConscience @shannonl5 @TessStevens @MyAffairWith @EasternShell @Cle1 @jazziejazz @primodiva93 @stephosorio @LizArnone
