Caitlyn Jenner Is Getting Destroyed On Twitter For Hypocritical Transphobic Comments (TWEETS)

Caitlyn Jenner was in the running for Time Magazine’s “Person of the Year”. If it was called  “blatant hypocrite of the year” she would have won, as you will soon read below.

Jenner has been involved in a lot of high-profile LGBT events, been given honors and awards, and received a lot of praise for her brave choice. The problem is that all this time, she has been something of a wolf in sheep’s clothing.

To put it plainly, Jenner is a hypocrite and traitor to the same community that has given her all these accolades and called her a hero.

In an interview with Time, Jenner was discussing her leadership role – as she called it – in the LGBT community. Immediately after that, Jenner went on to say how she tries to project what she calls a “good image” for the LGBT community’s sake. When asked for further comment, Jenner said the following:

One thing that has always been important for me, and it may seem very self-absorbed or whatever, is first of all your presentation of who you are. I think it’s much easier for a trans woman or a trans man who authentically kind of looks and plays the role. So what I call my presentation. I try to take that seriously. I think it puts people at ease. If you’re out there and, to be honest with you, if you look like a man in a dress, it makes people uncomfortable. So the first thing I can do is try to present myself well. I want to dress well. I want to look good. When I go out, as Kim says, you’ve got to rock it because the paparazzi will be there. The second thing I want to do in living my life authentically is be intelligent on the subject. Hopefully as time goes on I’ll learn more and more and more and get better at that.

To say this did not go over well for Jenner is a bit of an understatement.

Others were a bit more direct:

Amen to this one. Jenner is taking a LOT of glory from the trans community that wanted to accept her while she says things like this about them and votes against their own best interests.

Ellen DeGeneres also ripped into Jenner on the Howard Stern show a bit earlier this year, about her stance against gay marriage. Watch the clip of that exchange below:

What Jenner is referring to is “passing“. It essentially means that you have to disguise yourself to any length necessary to fool people into believing you are a standard cis male or female.

Full disclosure: I am not a trans individual. I am a regular cis guy. However, even with that in mind, I can still understand completely why people do not approve of this nonsense from Jenner. Let’s make a short list.

  • Not everyone can just spend untold fortunes like Jenner did, to “pass” for the gender they identify with. Whether it be through medical procedures, elaborate wardrobes, or what-have-you.
  • Calling other trans individuals a “man in a dress” is outrageously offensive. It’s such a direct and personal insult on an issue someone struggles with every day in one form or another. Caitlyn is literally calling trans women “men”.
  • When the hell did it suddenly become anyone’s responsibility to cater to the transphobic? No, really – When in the hell did it become civilized society’s responsibility to suddenly twist itself and do extra effort in order to soothe the feelings of a couple of bigots? The problem isn’t that someone looks like a “man in a dress”, but rather the ignorant, hateful, fearful, violent, and too often deadly reaction that is provoked by someone who is so irrationally hateful that a “man in a dress” would scare them to violence or hate speech.

With these comments, Jenner is essentially saying you have two options: Either you look good enough to fool everybody or go and hide back in the closet again and live in shame.  She is literally comparing every other trans person to herself and holding them to her standards that wealth and privilege can afford her.


Jenner votes Republican. Even now after all the hate from the right that she received, and being so “deeply concerned” with LGBT issues and the harassment of LGBT individuals, she still votes Republican. To paraphrase something Bette Midler said about Jenner – “She identifies as Uninformed”. It seems that is true again with this latest fiasco.
