The rights of the Lesbians Gays Bi-Sexual Trans Questioning (LGBTQ) community hits extremely close to home.
My brother is a transgender man and my best friend is a homosexual man.
I believe that we are all entitled to have equal rights, regardless of your sexual preference, and or gender.
Nonetheless, I have slowly started to lose faith in Caitlyn Jenner. I would think as a Trans Woman she would want to be an advocate for the rights of the LGBTQ community but for her to endorse an extremist like Ted Cruz is just so baffling.
Does she not understand the kind of message she’s giving by supporting the ideals of a man who wants to imprison or kill those of the LGBTQ community? Ted Cruz’s extremist message only shows hate so why does Jenner want to be his “trans ambassador?”
He hates what you stand for Cait? He wants to set this community back, revert the right to get married to just the heterosexual couples, he’s does not want to progress for the LGBTQ community, he doesn’t even believe you(transgender citizens) exist. There is a major backlash in the LGBTQ community in the regards to Cait, she’s just glamorizing it all, and it’s not all about the dresses, skirts or makeup. Each person in this community has had to face such extreme difficulty.
Gender reassignment surgery is expensive and luckily for you, you were able to under go it all in swift time frame. My brother on the other hand had top surgery two years ago and it was one of the most liberating things he’s undergone, this May, after saving a lot of money, he will finally has his gender reassignment surgery. This is what we should be capturing, not your ideals of the struggle it is to be a woman.
In Caitlyn Jenner’s interview with Buzzfeed she stated,
“The hardest thing about being a woman is figuring out what to wear,” um no that is not the hardest part of being a woman.
What about the tampon tax, having to pay taxes on purchasing feminine hygiene products, or not being paid the same as our male counterparts, or even so not being represented in our own government?
But I digress.
The importance of equal rights means so much to everyone in this nation and for Jenner to show support for someone who wants to take away the rights of her fellow LGBTQ is just shameful. Open your eyes Jenner, support someone who wants progression not some righteous fascist who hates this community.
