I have always been completely honest that I regularly watch Keeping Up With The Kardashians, much to my fellow liberals’ dismay. And because I have been a fan (STOP JUDGING ME!) of the show for so long, I never attacked Caitlyn Jenner–until she proved what a complete moron she is. During the presidential election, when Cait expressed her support for Ted Cruz, I was mindblown. How in the actual feck could a member of the transgender community, who did not embrace their true self for SIXTY years because of discrimination, vote for a member of the “moral majority”? I just could not wrap my mind around it. And just when I thought I couldn’t be more flabbergasted, she said something else.
On Tuesday night, Jenner sat down with CNN’s Don Lemon where she was asked if she regretted voting for Donald Trump and she responded:
No, not yet.
Her reason? Oh, well that’s the best part:
As far as LGBT issues, yes, he’s made some mistakes, okay? Ummm..but other things, I see, uh, we need to turn this country around and he’s a guy that I think, for better or worse, I don’t support him in everything that he does, ummm, but we needed to shake the system up, You know, to have career politicians constantly the Clintons and, you know, the Bushes run this country, we need to get outside that box and shake things up again.
And therein lies the problem with people like Jenner. She put the bullshit fear mongering about “establishment politicians” over the well-being of people in our own community. Instead of protecting the people who are fighting to protect her, she said,”Fuck you, I’ll elect this bigot and allow his bigoted advisors and bigoted party freely discriminate against you and me for the next four to eight years. Because, hey! at least he wasn’t a ‘career’ politician who has been fighting for your rights for more than two decades.”
I am so sick and tired of hearing this nonsense from people on both sides of the aisle. Yes, we absolutely need to “shake things up” in Washington, but the way to do it is by electing people who will push an inclusive agenda. You don’t shake things up by burning the country to the ground, hurt millions of your fellow humans in the process. That is not how this works and frankly, it is selfish as hell.
Jenner told Tucker Carlson the other night that she votes Republican because she believes it will be easier to get them to accept the LGBT community than it would for Democrats to accept lowering taxes. Is she kidding? The “moral majority” will never, ever, EVER accept the LGBT community, because they only seek to please Republican Jesus. Secondly, since when is money more important than people?
Never mind, when we are talking to a Republican, that’s when. And this is precisely why the transgender community feels such disdain for her. When push comes to shove, she doesn’t give a shit about them.
