    Caitlyn Jenner: Donald Trump is "For LGBT People"

    Trump.jpg

     If you thought that Caitlyn Jenner's recent revelation as a transgender woman would change her political views, you'll be sadly disproven by the reality TV stars latest interview with Sports Illustrated in which she not only publicly expressed her support for Donald Trump, but also indicated that he was apparently "very much behind" both females and the LGBT community.

    Jenner, who has come under enormous fire from liberal commentators regarding her staunchly Republican views, made the claim in a new article with Sports Illustrated for which she was the cover girl. Jenner began by condemning the reigning president Barack Obama for his management of the economy, a common claim among Republican naysayers; but she did say that things weren't all bad when it came to Obama's policies.

    “I’m not excited with what Obama has done to the economy, to our Constitution, all that kind of stuff. But as far as the transgender community, they’ve actually been very good.”

    She went on to explain her support for Trump, suggesting that he was a positive impact for the LGBT community. "Trump seems to be very much for women,” she explained. “He seems very much behind the LGBT community because of what happened in North Carolina with the bathroom issue. He backed the LGBT community.” 

    Earlier this year, Jenner told an Australian radio show that she would be voting for whoever the Republican candidate was chosen to be, but admitted that she had a preference for Ted Cruz as leader. After Trump was announced as the Republican candidate officially, Jenner made a somewhat bizarre video in which she entered Trump Tower just to use the ladies bathroom, a presumed comment on North Carolina's transphobic bathroom bills. In March, she stated that Trump would be "very good" for women's issues and that she doesn't "think he's out there to destroy women or takes things away or do any of that kind of stuff", apparently neglecting the fact that Trump has previously called breastfeeding "disgusting" and is pro-life when it comes to abortion.

    Jenner has previously stated that she is discriminated against more because of her Republican preferences than because of her transgender identity. What do you think of her public support of Trump? Does it mean that she deserves the criticism, or should she be entitled to her opinion regardless of her gender identity?

    He was against trans women participating in Miss America for years then when one finally made it, he mocked her name and transition  

    When discussing the lgbt community he said " I am a traditionalist" - when is republican for "I won't kill a gay person if they can make me money, but I in no way support their rights"

    "I bet you make a great wife.  But just a great wife.  Not a businesswoman and a wife — that doesn’t exist, obviously."

    "“It must be a pretty picture, you dropping to your knees.”

    When discussing trans bathroom rights “I believe it should be states’ rights and I think the states should make the decision, they’re more capable of making the decision"

    Supports the FADA, which would allow government workers to deny marriage licenses if it's against their religion

    Doesn't support same sex marriage/domestic partnership benefits if they're lgbt.

    He said we would appoint judges to reverse the marriage equality ruling

    "I'm not in favor of gay marriage. They should not be able to marry."

    "I just don't feel good about it. I don't feel right about it. I'm against it. I'm opposed to gay marriage."

    He misgendered Caitlyn.

    He said America is going to hell because of a NFL player kissing his boyfriend.

    “There can be no discrimination against gays (literally 2 seconds later) I’m against gay marriage.”

    Let's not forget his sexist attacks on Rose O'Donnell

    When discussing rape within the military "What did these geniuses expect when they put men & women together?"

    "Joking" about Megyn Kelly being on her period because she spoke back to him.

    The past year of bullshit he's given Hilary Clinton.

    He slut shamed Angelina Jolie 

    HE TRIED TO COME FOR CHER 

    But considering Caitlyn herself isn't in full support of marriage equality, has issues with trans being apart of the lgbt+ acronym, has issues with non-passing trans folks, hates the poor and thinks she's god's gift to the world, it really doesn't shock me that she supports him. She's a conceited sack of shit and I can't believe a year ago I was rooting for her :morning:

    Agreed with everything you've said about Trump, but Caitlyn's comments about marriage equality and physical appearance have been completely taken out of context. :/ When it came to marriage equality, she said that she didn't used to believe in gay marriage, but that her opinions have changed. And whatever she said about a woman's priority being their physicality was clearly a joke.

    I don't see how "I'm a traditionalist. I'm older than most people in the audience. I kind of like tradition, and it's always been a man and a woman" or  “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” can be taken out of context.  

    I know she's said she's changed her stance on marriage, but idk, so much about her support for the lgbq community seems fake in a way? I hope it's sincere, I truly do, but I can't trust the authenticity of her support if she truly believes Trump and Cruz would be great for the lgbt+ community. To me, it just shows a lot of her ignorance towards the real world.  And the 'man in a dress' comment really didn't seem like a joke tbh. It was a huge slap in the face to people who aren't cis-passing. With her being a 'traditionalist' I think she was stating a very real feeling people have towards trans/non-binary people. :/

    She said on Ellen that her stance on gay marriage had changed, and personally I'm willing to believe it given how much more time she's spent around the LGBT community. She's literally gone from being an icon of masculinity who probably didn't have a single gay friend like twenty years ago to being surrounded by trans people for most of her life (at least if her reality show is to be believed) so I don't think it's too far of a stretch to say that her opinion would have changed because of that.

    The other comment you brought up wasn't the one I was referring to, the one I was thinking of was when she said that "the most important thing about being a woman is the way you look". But in regards to the one you quoted, I honestly don't see how what she said was wrong? I don't think she was saying that what she's expressing is right or moral, I think she's just saying that it's a fact of life that trans people who are passable are gonna have a much easier time in society. For someone like her who's trying to ease more conservative people into accepting that community, I can see why it would be more important for her than for other people who are already in pretty liberal areas.

    I get that and I do hope her support is sincere. It still feels like she's ignorant to a lot of the issues if she truly believes Trump and Cruz would be good of the lgbt community :/ And I'm not disagreeing that it's easier for cis-passing folks to get by in society, but it felt like she was sympathizing with transphobes by validating their comfort levels.

    The other day I saw a comment about how the transgender movement is about fitting a role in the society and that's why they don't get a long with some other movements that oppose the gender normative of that society, like feminism or drag queens for the matter. And I think that has ton of sense, while this doesn't apply to all the trangender people it does apply to some, like Caitlyn and the ones that hate drag queens.

    I guess in a sense she is. But I think she's just looking at it practically instead of idealizing the situation. Obviously it would be great if we lived in a society where everyone was accepted regardless of their gender identity but I think we're still making baby steps. :) I agree she's ignorant when it comes to politics tho, but I think that she has more of a right to ignorance than others given her age. :stretcher:

    I actually agree with that as well. People can do whatever they want with their lives, but it's annoying when people say they're transitioning because they "feel like a woman" or something when everything that feminism has been doing for the past few decades is telling women that there's no way they should be feeling. :/

    I know!! It hurts me that some transgenders don't see how drag queens are the epitome of not giving a fuck about social norms and they bring down all the fights the feminist movement did to give them freedom, it's so sad.

    Haha I didn't even read the article I just love Genesis and can't stand Caitlyn or any of the Kardashian/Jenner brood.

    Fair enough. :P I have a lot of respect for the Kardashians! They've taken ridiculous situations and made fame and finances out of them and there's no way I can dislike them for that. ;)

      It's scary to see the danger that some of our favourite stars are in, and it's even sadder to realise that the severity of this situation could have been lessened by so much if we'd started taking climate change more seriously years ago.  I'm keeping everyone in my thoughts and hoping that everyone stays safe!

      Almost a year after he deleted his Twitter account back in May of 2017, Kanye West has reactivated his account - and it's already gotten him back in the headlines, thanks to a selection of Tweets in support of US President Donald Trump.
      Kanye started Tweeting again ten days ago, and his early Tweets were marked by a slew of announcements:a philosophy book, called Break the Simulation; a seven track solo album; a collaborative album with Kid Cudi called Kids See Ghost; and three albums produced by him for Pusha T, Teyana Taylor and Nas.
      But it didn't take long before the Tweets took another turn, with Kanye expressing support of Trump supporters such as Fox News personality Candace Owens and cartoonist Scott Adams and discussing terms such as "fake news". And then today, after days of questions from fans, he finally addressed the orange elephant in the room.
      Trump himself responded with a Tweet, thankful for the man who's probably his only black rapper supporter.
      West's wife Kim Kardashian also had something to say, allegedly calling West to ask him for clarity.
      For her part, Kim appears to completely disagree with Kanye's opinions, but she also defended him against the media's constant barrage of mental illness accusations.
      Kanye's Tweets have set off a spree of unfollows from his once-loyal fanbase, with stars like Ariana Grande, Harry Styles, Katy Perry, Lana del Rey, Justin Bieber, Nicki Minaj and Rihanna (the last three of which have collaborated with him) all jumping ship. Possibly more significantly, Kardashian sisters Khloe, Kourtney and Kendall have also all hit the Unfollow button. While reports have stated that West lost 9 million followers in total, it seems that he has gained just as many back as his follower count has remained steady - although we'd question how many of these followers are real people.
      Love them or hate them, nothing is ever boring in the Kardashian-West world. What are your thoughts of the Twitter tirade? Are Kanye's opinions justifiable, or is he officially on the same level as the alt-right? And are his Tweets just a publicity stunt, or has Kanye really lost the plot? Let us know in the comments section below!

      The devil has spoken. 
      In a world where Kim Kardashian defends a racist Jeffree Star (and then apologises) and Porcelain Black stands by Donald Trump's side, we are no longer surprised when we hear news about other ignorant celebrities sticking with these disgusting human creatures. Once relevant celebrity Paris Hilton simply had to add her five cents into the discussion as she defended her family's longtime friend Donald Trump and his "grab them by the pussy" comment in a new interview.
      The 36-year-old heiress started out the interview by stating that she didn’t actually vote for Donald Trump in the recent election because she didn’t vote at all, even though she stated in an interview that she had.
      The old perverted Cheetos-lookalike further admitted to watching Paris's infamous One Night in Paris film, even though he has known her since she was a 12-year-old girl. Paris told Marie Claire that Trump watching her sex tape "wasn’t creepy at all. He’s not like that at all, he’s always been so respectful."
      She was also asked if Trump‘s "grab them by the pussy" line bothered her. In response, she stated, "I’ve heard guys say some pretty crazy things. Like, worse than that. So I think that when someone doesn’t realize they’re being filmed or recorded, they say things. Especially with a guy." She went on, "So I think it was kind of just one of those things where you’re with someone – I’ve heard guys say the craziest things ever, because I’m always around guys, and I listen to them speak. So I definitely don’t think he would just say that."
      Paris fell even deeper into the shithole when she was asked about the claims made by several women stating that he had sexually harassed them. Paris said:
      Later, Paris DMed popular Twitter account PopCrave to clarify that the words were taken out of context.

      But is it too little too late? Let us know your thoughts in the comments down below!
