I was all Team Caitlyn when she transitioned because I love people who live in their truth, no matter how long it may take them to accept themselves, or for the world to accept them.
Then she started talking about politics, and that’s where I became worried. I mean, it’s fine if she’s a Republican, though, again, I don’t get gay Republicans. But when she threw her support behind _____ and claimed he’d be the best candidate for the LGBT community I was furious. I mean, what has _____ ever done, as a private citizen, as a candidate, as President for us?
I mean, he scrubbed us from the White House website; he dropped us from the Census. Then he proposed a ban on transgender military personnel.
And that’s when Caitlyn finally broke away from _____, and openly criticized him:
“I believe every American should be outraged by the disrespect shown to those people wearing our country’s uniform.”
And I agreed; she added that transgender soldiers and veterans are “much braver than you, Mr. _____” pledged her allegiance to the Trans gender Community and to the country, but not to Donald _____.
And then she was photographed driving around in her little convertible wearing a “Make America Great Again” hat.
Of course, Caitlyn has now come out and apologized to the transgender community—her community—after being seen in the hat:
“I apologize to all of the trans community. I made a mistake. I will never do it again and I'm getting rid of the hat.”
Jenner wants us to believe that she mistakenly wore that hat after grabbing the first one she could find while rushing off to a golf club. She said she never thought she’d be spotted with the hat but now plans to either auction it off or destroy it.
It was publicity, Caitlyn, a chance to get yourself in the news, again; publicity, something you live for, no matter who it hurts. You know that you're going to be followed and photographed when you go out, so you don't make "mistakes" when choosing what to wear. It got you noticed, which you love, and then you can milk it with a faux-pology.
So, I go back again, and say, again, Fuck off, Caitlyn, you’re not needed as an ally or a spokesperson for any part of our community.
