CHANGE OF HEART
Caitlyn Jenner SUPPORTS gay marriage just weeks after awkward exchange with Ellen DeGeneres
CAITLYN JENNER DESCRIBES HERSELF AS A TRADITIONALIST
The 65-year-old came to blows with TV host Ellen DeGeneres a couple of weeks ago regarding her opinion on the matter.
During the tense interview Cait – who has recently transitioned – said she didn’t really “get” same sex marriage.
But after some time to contemplate her stance she revealed how she now feels in her latest blog post, written to mark the end of the first series of her show.
She wrote: “I want to help each of you understand something that I only recently embraced: Being different is okay – in fact, it’s great! But I also understand it takes some getting used to.”
“Like many people, there was a time when I didn’t realize how important it is for gay couples to have the right to get married,” she confessed.
“But after hearing from my gay friends and learning more about the hardships they faced because of discrimination, it became clear to me that everyone should be able to marry the person they love.
“I can only hope that by sharing my story, there’s someone out there whose mind has been changed about trans people.”
Ellen and Cait enjoyed a rather awkward exchange regarding the issue a couple of weeks ago when the TV presenter brought up that Caitlyn had previously identified as a conservative republican.
“As it appears in … full read/full credit”
I must confess that I watched the complete first season of “I Am Cait”.
This isn’t the usual type of show that I watch.
The only reality shows that I watch are “Survivor” and “The Amazing Race”.
The reason that I watched “Cait” is because I didn’t want anyone judge the show by what others told me.
I wanted to make my own opinions based on what I saw.
I think there’s a duality in all of this for me.
I feel for Caitlyn as she goes throw her transformation in such a public manner.
Yet, at the same time, I still feel some superficiality in all of it.
Sometimes it pains me to watch some of the episodes.
As a member of the LGBT community, I was looking forward to see what kind of message she would bring to the forefront.
I wondered if she would help or hinder the movement for visibility and equality in the trans community.
I’m still “on the fence” about this.
I don’t know yet it this is really the person best fitted to represent the transgender community.
As noted above, her views don’t coincide with the usual LGBT positions.
I guess we will still have to wait.
In the meantime, the show has been renewed for a second season.
I wonder where it all will take us.
