Before I begin this rant, some disclosure: The subject of transgendered people is not an abstract for me. There is a member of my family who is
transgendered... well at least I think that term still applies. He was he
until a few years ago. Then he
. But as of a
few weeks ago she
is now demanding to be referred to as he
again. The current claim is that he is both a homosexual male and a female
lesbian - all at once. I honestly am frustrated about the whole thing.
From day one of this persons "coming out", I was positive
that their entire transgendered thing was a ruse to serve a twofold process. First,
he left his wife of fifteen years to move in with a much younger lesbian. Second he has always ascribed to a way over the top version of Ayn Rand
social Darwinism - openly stating that "defectives", minorities, the poor and the elderly should all be summarily executed. In my opinion, the
obvious bigot sought to hide behind gender politics to be shielded from the hate that his political positions so often garnered.
Gender removed, this person was a sociopathic ass from day one and that hasn't changed. While I don't think that he is representative of all
transgendered people - he certainly has caused a predisposition towards some level of bias within me.
So, with that aside... Onto the hypocrisy of Caitlyn Jenner...
Here is what Caitlyn had to say about the economically disenfranchised...

Now sit back and watch as the same conservatives who have been mocking Caitlyn for months by saying things like "Today my sexual identity is a
taco. Can I be a sexual taco today?" come to her defense. THAT is hypcrisy.
"Don't a lot of times they can make more not working with social programs than they actually can with an entry-level job," she says. "You
don't want people to get totally dependent on it. That's when they get in trouble – 'Why should I work? I got a few bucks, I got my room paid
Further, Caitlyn Jenner... shame on you.
I realize that this woman lives in a bubble of extreme wealth, and has for decades at the very least. I am aware that her entire universe is a
perverse and twisted reality TV land where Kanye and Kim come to dinner and the garage is wall to wall Ferrari's. But, my God! When Jenner decided to
come out as transgendered it was LIBERALS who kept her relevant and supported her. It is LIBERALS who keep her viable as a commodity and earning that
money she apparently does not know how to appreciate or be thankful for.
She is biting the hand that fed her.
If a person is only liberal in the areas that directly affect them... if they only care about tolerance as it directly effects them... then they are
not liberal at all. They are just an opportunistic conservative.
So ATS. Am I getting triggered here because this side of Cait reminds me of that jerk member of my own family? Or do you also see this as hypocrisy in
it's purest form?
