My thoughts on Caitlyn Jenner
First off, I think its amazing! She is finally free. I can’t imagine being confused, lost, and scared for 65 years about your identity. I think its a beautiful thing to be really be sure about who you are and commit to it physically, emotionally, and mentally.
Be you! And if anyone makes you feel ashamed for being you, forget them. They are ignorant, stubborn, and afraid of change. Just feel sorry for them that they don’t know how to open their eyes and understand.
I’m glad someone who is a major part of the public eye is experiencing this for everyone to see. That DOES NOT mean if you’re not famous and transgender, you’re irrelevant. It just means that there is a spokesperson for the community and more people have the opportunity to be aware of it.
I am also deeply proud of the Kardashians and Jenners for reacting so positively to her transition. I can’t imagine how hard it is for them. I watched the episode on Keeping Up With the Kardashians where they talk about Caitlyn’s transition. They explained how its almost like experiencing a death in the family, when a family member transitions. You thought you knew someone so well, but they were actually a lot different. The person you knew for so long is gone. However, the positive part of that is a better, happier version of that same person reappears.
I hope in our next generation, people find being transgender, gay, bisexual, and being straight all NORMAL things. I hope ignorance on this topic disappears and we treat every personal identity and sexuality all equally.
