Oh Caitlyn Jenner, I had such high hopes for you. You could have been the voice for the Trans community who have not only been silenced but beaten down for generations. You could have educated the public about LBGTQ+ rights. You could have actually used your wealth and power to make a difference but no;
Instead you choose to support Ted fucking Cruz.
Like I'm sorry but what the hell is going on in your head?!
In an interview with The Advocate’s Dawn Ennis, Caitlyn, a known republican, defended Cruz as a nice man who would make a great president. She goes on to talk about how the trans community needs job security and that Ted Cruz is gonna be there guy to give it to them because,“I think he’s very conservative, and a great constitutionalist, and a very articulate man.”
She later back tracks to say she isn't enforcing him per say, but the fact that she had anything positive to say about a man who very much makes his very hateful opinions on the LBGTQ+ community known is ridiculous.
Just last week Ted Cruz responded to the issue of trans violence and bullying with this gem: [on the protection of trans teens a] "“ridiculous” decision made by “zealots,” explaining, “I don’t want my daughters taking showers with little boys.”
Oh and on the subject of Cruz getting jobs for trans people...thats a joke and you being his "trans ambassador when he's president" is an even bigger one.
Trans people don't have jobs because the world is so uneducated that business owners have even admitted to hiring less qualified people over a trans person. Its not because there is a lack of a job market for them.
Hellllllo Cruz opposes The Equality Act, which is a law that would actually protect transgender people from discrimination in employment.
Also Caitlyn, you met Cruz when you were still a rich, famous MAN. I wonder how he would have acted if he met you before you transitioned? Who knows, but I certainly know he wouldn't ask you help him help the trans community.
Just do us all a favor and leave the spot light for a while. Educate yourself and then come back. You can do so much for the trans community but backing a man who HATES your community is not helping anyone.
In fact you just make things worse. Get a fucking clue.
@JohnConstable name-calling has no place in civilized debate. It's impossible to ascertain someone's level of intelligence based on their political views. Bruce Jenner got famous for his athletic gifts. The return to the spotlight as Caitlyn Jenner was for her transition and willingness to be in the spotlight for it. I'm not sure what anyone expected to begin with.
i think the point of this was that caityln is an idiot. she is a terrible person and too vain to be a true leader or martyr
how many generations have transgendered people been beaten down? like how many people's grandpa's used to be grandmas. great great uncle aunts? I think this guy Bruce is among the first generation switcheroo unless I'm mistaken
I understand that you don't like Ted Cruz, but Caitlyn Jenner has the right to support whoever she wants. She obviously has different priorities as far as social vs economic issues, and that's ok. I'm not saying you have to agree with her political stances, but you could at least respect them. It boggles my mind that the same people that gave her a platform to speak would immediately turn against her the moment she uses it for something they disagree with.
