Rich people will almost always prioritize being rich over any other concern, and Caitlyn Jenner is a textbook case from the presidential election. Jenner was a vocal supporter of Donald Trump, and seemed to think that she could be the voice of reason in his ear on trans issues. Keep her money and protect the rights of LGBTQ people at the same time! Turns out you actually can’t deal with the Devil and Donald Trump cannot hear voice of reason.
This week, Donald Trump personally pressured Secretary of Education Betsy DeVos into rescinding protections for trans students. Much like a child, Trump is still obsessed with where other people go pee-pee. Unfortunately, where people go to the bathroom is a serious matter. Using public facilities that align with your gender identity is a basic right, it's something that transgender people have been doing for years without incident. Not only is a bathroom ban insulting and absurd, how would you enforce it?
Yet, Jenner is shocked, SHOCKED, that Trump would attack the trans community in this unnecessary, humiliating and dangerous way, particularly since the attack is aimed at children. In a short video on Twitter, Jenner said, “I have a message for President Trump from well, one Republican to another. This is a disaster. And you can still fix it. You made a promise to protect the LGBTQ community. Call me.”
Sure. Sure, he’ll call you. Just like at the inauguration.
Jenner is very appropriately getting dragged to hell for this bulls*it. Her mentions are a mess, filled with some variation on tweets like, “@Caitlyn_Jenner BISH PLEASE. You know we all warned you. You can't vote for a fascist and eat your cake too.”
You can try to protect your money or civil society, but very rarely both.
