Caitlyn Jenner: Hillary Clinton isn’t an ally, she ‘couldn’t care less about women’

wenn23580107

The new season of I Am Cait is upon us, and Season 2 is giving us more information about Caitlyn Jenner’s politics. Even in her Diane Sawyer interview last year, Caitlyn talked about how identifying as trans didn’t change her fundamental political views, which are absolutely right-of-center. Previously, Caitlyn told an audience that she’s gotten more “flack” for being Republican than being trans, and just last week, we discussed how Caitlyn basically endorsed Ted Cruz. Her dream is to be President Ted Cruz’s trans ambassador and advisor. Because… logic. Ted Cruz – like nearly every major Republican figure – has been openly hostile to the LBGTQ community. But according to Caitlyn, that doesn’t mean people trans people should support Hillary Clinton.

We already know that former Olympian and current transgender reality star Caitlyn Jenner is a supporter of anti-LGBT GOP presidential candidate Ted Cruz. Now, thanks to the second-season premiere of I Am Cait, it’s also confirmed that Jenner is no fan of Democratic front-runner Hillary Clinton.

“If we’re unfortunate enough to get Hillary as our next president, we need her on our side,” Jenner told her friends during an on-air political discussion. “Although she won’t be … she couldn’t care less about women. She only cares about herself.”

Unlike her Republican opponents, Clinton has loudly championed trans rights. On I Am Cait, Jennifer Finney Boylan, who’s on a road trip with Jenner and other activists to promote trans rights, quizzed Jenner on which Republican would help the cause.

“All of ‘em. … None of the Republicans [say], ‘Oh, I hate trans people’ or ‘I hate gays.’ Nothing like that,” Jenner said. “They do more, ‘I want a thriving economy so every trans person has a job.’”

Jenner’s friends, including actress Candis Cayne, appeared visibly flummoxed and annoyed. Later, Boylan discussed the failure of Houston’s equal rights ordinance, which was billed as the “bathroom bill,” with Republican leaders stoking fears of “men in women’s restrooms.” Jenner again defended Republicans and took umbrage at Boylan’s assertion that the GOP uses anti-LGBT fearmongering to get votes.

“I don’t feel like they’re out to get us,” Jenner said. “Every conservative guy out there believes in everybody’s rights.”

[From The Advocate]

I’m including a poor-quality video of the exchange below. It’s really bad. One of the things I’ve always defended about I Am Cait is that it’s given Caitlyn Jenner the opportunity to face and acknowledge her own privilege, repeatedly, on camera. But acknowledging her privilege only goes so far, especially when she’s so hellbent on a narrow frame of political reference. Just take Ted Cruz, Caitlyn’s political candidate of choice. Cruz has a completely open history of denigrating the LGBTQ community in speeches, statements and through his own voting record. He does not believe people in the LGBTQ community are equal to heterosexual, cisgendered people. Full stop. He does not believe they are entitled to the same rights and protections under the law. Hillary Clinton is far from perfect, and I’m not saying she will be down 100% with a trans agenda, but she will listen and she will be an ally.

    What does Caitlyn know about anything?

    • doofus says:

      there’s a serious disconnect from reality with her.

      I’d like someone to show her actual quotes and video footage of Crazy Cruz spewing his anti-LGBT shit…though, the way some repubs have been this election cycle, she’d likely put her fingers in her ears and go “lalalalalala – Ted Cruz is a great advocate for the LGBT population – lalalalalala”.

      you could tell these idiots that the sky is blue…take them outside and show them, and they’d go “sure it is”…then tell them that Hillary thinks the sky is blue and they’d go “HELL NO IT’S NOT!…IT”S GREEN!”

      • joan says:

        She may be a Woman Emotionally, but her Brain is still Shallow, Wealthy, Privileged, Elitist, White, and Male.

      • Beanie says:

        Idiots? Are these idiots you are referring to anyone and everyone who doesn’t follow your logic? There are good and plenty reasons why people don’t like or trust Ms. Clinton. Ad hominem attack from a whiny liberal. Quelle surprise! By the way, I’m an Independent.

      • doofus says:

        no, Beanie, not all of them. the ones who don’t see the obvious when it’s put right in front of them. like Cruz and his hatred of anyone that’s not a white, Christian male. like the poor folks in the south who are the biggest users of the gov’t safety net and then vote for candidates that want to dismantle it. or Caitlyn Jenner, who, if Cruz had his way, would be executed. yes, Cruz supports the “Kill all Gays” pastor. and you can extrapolate that to “Kill all LGBT people”.

        I only mentioned Hillary because that’s who Jenner mentioned. and I think you need to brush up on your vocab because what I said was not an “ad hominem” attack. but calling someone who has a legit point “a whiny liberal” is, especially if you can’t refute the point. the point being, some folks have such an irrational hatred for this woman that they would ignore the obvious or dispute something that is fact.

      • Beanie says:

        Actually the ad hominem attack I was referring to was calling a large group of people idiots, not what you said about Hillary. I don’t know if I agree that people have an irrational hatred of Hillary. This sounds like more of the echoes of people have an irrational hatred of Barack Obama. That is a different kind of bigoted hatred. Hillary’s dislike, or hatred if you will, is more earned. ;-) I don’t hate Hillary, I just don’t trust her. Just my opinion, Sorry I called you whiny, it just sounded a little personal being referred to as an idiot because I don’t like Hillary.

    • The Eternal Side-Eye says:

      Nothing about anything.

      She refuses to believe the Republicans are against trans individuals because it’s the one corner she can’t buy her way out of.

      If Republicans would really discriminate against her simply for being trans then she’ll have to admit she willingly made herself into a 3rd class citizen in the eyes of the party she was once comfortably respected in. I think half of her comments are self-denial. She wants so badly for Ted Cruz or someone else to extend a hand to her and assure her, her privelaged spot in the world is untouched.

      She’s in for such a rude awakening.

    • Mrs. Wellen Melon says:

      Caitlyn Jenner’s value system: money. First, last, and In between: money.

      • Lisa says:

        OT but given what’s happening with his youngest daughter, injecting himself into this election season is only making me disrespect even more than I already do. SMH I too wish that someone would break his very privileged white male bubble. What a moron.

      • BabyJane says:

        For that reason alone I’m surprised she DOESN’T vibe with Hillary Clinton…

      • themummy says:

        Lisa, why are you referring to her as him, his, himself, and as a white male? I can see that you don’t like her, but she is a she. Referring to her as male is really tone deaf and downright rude. It also is all that stands out about your comment, rather than your comment standing out for its content. Just my $.02.

      • Pandora says:

        @themummy the “he” and the “his”? Because taking hormones and inserting implants doesnt erase 60 years living as a white man with all the advantages that that entails and that he has prospered by, and his politics are wonderful example of how changing gender has not instantly made him a woman in any true deeper sense, his experience of gender can and will be limited to a comparatively superficial vein of the female experience.

        I wish being female were as simple as coordinating my freaking wardrobe and going out for cocktails with my girlfriends and being a guest at lgbt events.

        Transgender exeprience is not the same as cis gendered experience,it just isnt, it just cannot be, if Cait was smarter he’d cop to this, dude is doing everybody a disservice, because when he spouts shit about politics its bruce talking not caitlyn

    • Sarah(too) says:

      She knows the same that Bruce did. Bruce was an incredibly vapid man. Caitlyn is an incredibly vapid woman.

    • Racalito says:

      The dumb is strong with this one. Caitlyn I think your hair dye is seeping into your brain.

  2. Catwoman says:

    How lucky we are to have us as a spokesperson for all of us womenfolk.

    • Kitten says:

      Yeah the GOP TOTALLY cares about us, don’tcha know!

    • Tiffany :) says:

      https://youtu.be/UH9rC0MaBJc

      This video of Clinton testifying before congress in 2009 was one of the things that really impacted my view of her. She is so incredibly knowledgeable about women’s issues, not just in the US, but globally.

      Caitlyn is ignorant on this subject, especially in regards to Hillary.

      • Naya says:

        My first awareness of the Taliban was when she took a teenage Chelsea to Afghanistan (or was it Pakistan?) , way before Bush and the war. I still remember seeing that news clip and learning for the first time what an honor killing was.

      • Who ARE these people? says:

        Sometimes I want Sanders and Clinton to run as a package. He can do his thing for economic justice and military restraint, she can do her thing for women and children IN THAT CONTEXT, and we don’t have to split the vote. Really – US presidency – big job – needs more staffing!

      • CatFoodJunkie says:

        Hillary has given feminist a kick in the collective gut by not acknowledging her career has been and always will be tied to a philandering “husband”. I’d respect her if she stood up and said yes…He cheated, but really we don’t have a romantic relationship, just a business partnership, and so there is no betrayal of trust. By “forgiving” Bill time and again, year after year, she continues to send the wrong message to women. Look at her history– she was offered a job at the Rose Law Firelm after bill was elected Attorney General, and given a partnership at that firm juuuust after Bill was elected governor. We all know where that led. After that, she carpetbagged a senate seat in a State she had previously no connection to whatsoever…. And then Bill set up an office in Harlem. Gee. Shocking coincidences, all of them.

      • Mytbean says:

        Catfood – I see your point and am not particularly passionate about Hillary’s game.

        However, she married someone with mutual interests (her college experience was law and political science). I can’t blame her but only credit her for her husband’s title and resulting priviledge. They towed that line together to get him to potus. Why shouldnt she take advantage of its resulting contacts and perks to pursue her own career? She worked just as hard to get them.

        And I can only see it as wisdom to turn lemons into lemonade by being opportunistic. She seems to see paths and takes them… Irrespective to who or what created the opening.

        As for her staying despite his wandering dong, not all marriages are the same formula. For many people sex is just sex and marriage is more about who is standing next to them when the really heavy parts of life happen. If you look at it sideways, she and Bill are incredibly resilient and die hard optimists.

        I say all this but also see that I don’t like her for the same reason I don’t care for politicians in general. The deception, grooming, evolving puppet show. Blech.

    • Schnee says:

      Right? Also what a Republican says about Dem candidates isn’t really all that important or relevant tbh.

  3. lucy2 says:

    It’s Caitlyn Jenner. Was anyone expecting great wisdom, intelligence, or understanding of facts?
    Caitlyn saying Hillary only cares about herself is pretty rich – pot meet kettle. Caitlyn doesn’t even care much about her own kids.

    • Shambles says:

      Speak that truth. Go on.

    • Aarika says:

      Yeah lol @ “Hilary only care about herself”. That is pretty rich coming from someone who has abandoned all of own kids and didn’t even call some of them when there was an earthquake. I want to gift her the most giant mirror ever for her to look into when’s making those terrible statements and maybe she’ll get a clue. Caitlyn is a joke. She should just shut up already.

    • The Eternal Side-Eye says:

      She’s burning through her ‘Yay! Congrats on being the first trans celeb or something!’ fund quickly.

      At this rate she’ll have to post nothing but baby pics of Saint to make people sympathize with her again.

      • Lisa says:

        She probably hasn’t even met Saint yet given his obsession with this laughable campaign for “LBGT Ambassador”.

    • Size Does Matter says:

      Adding a pair of implants doesn’t increase IQ, unfortunately.

    • Pandy says:

      I can’t believe she STILL has a platform. That’s how the US has ended up with Donald Trump. Someone on TV = probably a guy worth voting for. The day Caitlyn speaks for womankind …

      • Who ARE these people? says:

        You hit the nail on the head. Part of Trump’s triumph is because he was already in American living rooms establishing his persona and brand. Ugh.

    • Carol says:

      Caitlyn is massively delusional its just shocking.

    • Carol says:

      So true.

    • CMiddy says:

      Caitlyn’s kids seem barely literate. Anyone who finds this reality show star as a credible voice on politics must be cray cray … Like half of US apparently …

  4. Goo says:

    Truer words have never been spoken…

  5. FingerBinger says:

    Hillary Clinton only cares about herself? That’s rich coming from Caitlyn. Bruce only cared Bruce. Now Caitlyn only cares about Caitlyn. Nobody in that family sees the irony in the things they say.

  6. polonoscopy says:

    I know HIll isn’t perfect, but you can always look at her legislative history before you pass judgement.

  7. tifzlan says:

    Ted Cruz could give two poops about trans people AND women, yet here you are!!!

    • Sadezilla says:

      This is what I came here to say. Ted Cruz is pretty much anti-woman, and even worse re: trans people. He’s the most socially conservative of all of the Republicans. He’s bad for everyone’s civil rights, except for white men’s. How do people not see this?

      • Lilacflowers says:

        Cruz doesn’t care about the civil rights of white men who are gay, Jewish, Muslim, atheist, Catholic, Orthodox, or any other religion other than his own.

      • Pandy says:

        Caitlyn still thinks like a white man! It’s her only frame of reference really.

      • sauvage says:

        And a rich white man at that.

  8. saras says:

    The republicans don’t want women to be able to have any say in what happens to their own bodies! Lol do you think they support your trans t!#@ and slits lady?!? They would stone you in the street if they could!

  9. Maya says:

    Don’t agree – if I can vote then I will vote for Hilary.

    • frankie says:

      I guess as women we should definitely take our advise from some who is learning what it means to be a woman no offense meant here. Its just interesting that someone who once acceptance as woman judges someone who has been a woman their while life. One think i know as woman is women are very tolerant , patient and accepting something Catlyn might want to learn

  10. mia girl says:

    The woman is clueless. Simply clueless.

    • Kristen820 says:

      AND delusional…

    • JudyK says:

      At least as shallow as her daughters, surprisingly inarticulate, and has a noodle for a brain. She needs to recuse herself from political discussions and many others, as well.

  11. tmc says:

    Her legislative history and Secretary of State history is troubling — and while she may be okay on some women specific issues, her record on issues related to human beings overall such as wealth, inequity, war, bombings, etc. is troubling, caustic and shows lack of integrity, so in that respect, yes, I agree, not great for women.

    • noway says:

      Even if it what you say is true, why support Ted Cruz? Sometimes I think Caitlyn Jenner forgets she is transgender. Cruz has supported many bills that discriminate against the LGBT communities, even going so far as speaking against Republicans who support pride parades. I know a lot of people support a person who runs against their interests, but this is seriously way against your interest. Hate to say it, but at least Trump is a bit more ambivalent and certainly less negatively vocal about the LBGT community than Cruz and would make more sense. Let’s just admit it Caitlyn Jenner is not very intelligent, and hopefully no one will let her speak for any group.

    • SusanneToo says:

      I voted for Bernie in our primary, but I’m realistic-Hillary will be the nominee. And on the other side? Not a single one who would be good for humanity, much less women, so Hillary it is.
      PS. Caitlyn is a narcisistic idiot just like everyone else in her family.

      • ScrewStewRat99 says:

        I plan on voting for Bernie in the primary. The only republican I would even consider voting for is Kasich. He’s the only one not acting like a clown in this race. I don’t understand how Jenner can even support Cruz. He is against everything that she is. Her comments just baffle me

      • Who ARE these people? says:

        I voted for Sanders, as did my husband and college-aged daughter. For me, it was “I finally have a chance to vote for someone with some integrity and this is what primaries are for.” For my husband, it was “he’s right + we really can’t predict who’s more electable in the general election.” For my daughter, it was “He is talking about how to pay for college and he doesn’t owe Wall Street any favors.”

        So there you go.

      • sauvage says:

        @ScrewStewRat99: Careful with Kasich, especially if you are a woman. He may not openly seem crazy, but I invite you to google Kasich + Women’s Rights. Not a pleasant read.

    • Jwoolman says:

      TMC– I doubt that the issues you mention are troubling to Caitlyn. Her problem is that Hillary is a Democrat…. It’s ludicrous to claim that Hillary doesn’t care about women regardless about politics, but that statement isn’t really in line with her actual political activity and voting record or personal history. Caitlyn is just projecting her own feelings, since she is really the one who seems to care only about herself- not even about her own children. And she is delusional if she thinks Cruz cares about trans people and will welcome her as his “ambassador”. She hasn’t figured out yet that she doesn’t have the same clout and attraction to the politicians as Caitlyn Jenner that she had as Bruce Jenner, the male Republican Olympian. She’s now a political liability, not an asset.

      Unfortunately, every President and the overwhelming majority of people in Congress are always happy to bomb other people. This seems to cut across party, gender, and ethnic lines. It plays well to the fears of the voters, and if they object to the war du jour then they will be tarred and feathered as cowards and traitors, since of course it’s so patriotic to go along with every dumb thing the government and Pentagon decide to do. Sometimes I wonder if we had a military coup years ago but just don’t know about it yet, this doesn’t seem to change. Recent Republicans do get us into war much more readily than Democrats, though, who tend to get us out of the major wars but still like to bomb people on smaller scales. This is probably because of the intimate connection between war-related or war-profiting corporations who also have strong direct ties to the people the Republicans have been inflicting us with in recent decades. (Check out Reagan, Cheney, and Bush I and II connections especially.) War is very profitable. Always follow the money if you want to understand American foreign policy and its odd shifts and turns, suddenly demonizing those it happily poured money into before without blinking an eye. Saddaam Hussein’s unforgivable sin was nothing about the Kurds or treatment of local dissidents but rather his granting oil contracts to other countries (not US corporations tied to the then-current Administration) and his threat to go from petrodollars to the more stable petroeuros….

      But the Republicans weren’t always like this. They used to be a much more varied group rather than the weird little band of out-of-touch aliens now dominating the Party. They actually used to nominate at least competent people for President and Vice President and actually listened politely to the State of the Union address even if delivered by a Democrat. They actually worked together with Democrats in Congress rather than trying to demolish every proposal “just because” and then shutting down the government like angry toddlers when they couldn’t get their own way. I remember when the Republican Senator Mark Hatfield was practically the lone voice (especially on the Republican side) against bombing Iraq in the Senate. Republican President Dwight D. Eisenhower was the one who warned against the “military-industrial complex”, a prophecy which has certainly come true.

        You realize Hillary voted for and was a strong proponent of said war as were many other Democrats including those on the intelligence committees?

    • Beanie says:

      I agree. Thank you for having the courage to state some unsettling facts about Ms. Clinton’s political history. I can’t trust her, apparently I am in the majority. I was dismayed to hear how many people would vote for her even though they do not trust her.

    • GoodNamesAllTaken says:

      Totally agree. And she has helped to destroy the lives of any who came forward. She’s a terrible human being. But, if Cait thinks Ted Cruz is going to help trans people – delusional.

      • Merritt says:

        Actually the media did far more to destroy the lives of those women. But you know facts.

      • GoodNamesAllTaken says:

        I said she helped. And she did.

      • Timbuktu says:

        Hmm, but I’m not sure I see the connection between being mean to a few women personally and being forward-thinking on women’s issues. I’ve been nasty to a few women in my lifetime, some of those women really deserved it, too. Doesn’t mean I don’t care about Planned Parenthood, etc.
        Her situation *IS* different, I realize, but I still don’t think that it necessarily reflects her stand on issues and what she would do for ALL women as a president.

        That is basically the same story for most democrats. People need to stop with the revisionist history.

      First: no. Partisan clap trap.
      Second: so women are responsible for the alleged sins of their spouses?

      • GoodNamesAllTaken says:

        First: Your denial of the claims of Paula Jones and several other women that Bill Clinton sexually harassed them or worse simply because you want Hillary to win is pretty ugly. And pretty typical.
        Second: she’s responsible for continuing to be married to a serial abuser while trying to pretend she believes that “all claims of sexual violence against women should be taken seriously.” Unless being married to them gives you an advantage politically. Then they can go to hell and be called bimbos.

      • CatFoodJunkie says:

        @GNAT EXACTLY !!!!

      • Magnoliarose says:

        People need to be welcomed to 2016. The Bill Clinton as a cheater red herring is tired and old. That makes total sense to blame the wife for her husbands faults because you know she can’t be her own woman you see. It’s such a talking point of the right while they completely skip over their own anti woman body snatching agenda. We can’t change history and can only deal with what we can now. Voters in my age group were too young to remember the ins and outs of that time and though it’s relevant in a way my view of HRC is formed by her recent history. Good and bad.

    Ha. Clinton only cares about herself? You mean, as opposed to Trump? I think Caitlyn will slowly but surely start losing some of those new trans-friends she made.
    And I can’t wait to see the conservative guys who will line up to date her. Bless her.

      She’s always been lock step if not a bit forward than the majority of the democratic party when it comes to LGBT issues. Let’s not pretend that everyone was suddenly for gay marriage and civil unions, and that Hillary was holding things up. Hell, by that logic Barack Obama was behind the curve as well.

      • The Eternal Side-Eye says:

        Thank you. When we look back on history let’s not look through a modern lens and suddenly absolve what was really going on at the time.

        2 years ago the majority of Americans were against Gay Marriage and LBGT rights, 4 years and the numbers only climbed. As recently as 2010 if it had been put to a vote like in other parts of the world Gay Marriage would have been struck down soundly.

        What’s good with the changing times is as a country we began to view gay people less as others and more like our fellow neighbors and family who deserve to be treated fairly.

        I agree.

      • Trillion says:

        I applaud any person, politician or otherwise, who has the smarts to assess information and change their mind. I don’t understand why people consider this a fault. This is how people grow. I hope I never get to a point in my life where I throw up barriers to anything that challenges my way of thinking.

    • Jwoolman says:

      pepper – That’s more of a generational thing. Hillary at least shows an ability to change, which is all we can hope for in anybody. Attitudes take a while to shift, the most important thing is to remove obstacles to equal rights rather than creating more of them. Can’t pass a law to make people like each other.

  17. Lilacflowers says:

    Ted “Vaginas are Evil” Cruz cares so much about women. He plans to protect us from abortions and birth control and planned parenthood and treatment for ovarian cysts and equal pay and from people like you using the Ladies Room, Caitlyn. I totally understand how you can support him. After I drink 4 bottles of vodka and bang my head against the wall repeatedly.

    • Shambles says:

      Me join in the consuming of the vodka and bring you a pillow for your poor head. As far as your evil vagina, not much I can do to help there.

    • MC2 says:

      Even after vodka & head banging I still don’t get it! P.S.- thanks for getting me really drunk in the morning. After your idea I thought it might help me see Caitlyn’s point…..nope….still an idiot

      We need more vodka!

  18. Wentworth Miller says:

    So, Ms. I want to be a girl so I can wear pretty clothes is saying that Hillary Clinton doesn’t care about women?
    I swear! Every single member of this J/K family (except the babies) talks out of their asses.
    Hth did CJ become the face of transgender women, anyway?
    I just realized that the word “transgender” isn’t in my phone as a word. The auto correct changed it to “transcended.”

    • Malificent says:

      I think that typo is brilliant. Because transgender women have to try to transcend the kind of BS being spewed by Caitlyn and her conservative buddies every day!

      It’s one thing to say that you are fiscally conservative and socially liberal (not that Caitlyn actually is socially liberal). Decades ago, you could be a mainstream Republican and say that. But now the GOP has been so co-opted by evangelical social politics that they don’t allow any deviation from the conservative social agenda in any of their major candidates.

      ‘My dream is that one day, Caitlyn is on a bus tour through America to promote her latest book on being a transgendered Republican. And she can’t find a women’s bathroom that she’s allowed to pee in anywhere in South Dakota….

        “‘My dream is that one day, Caitlyn is on a bus tour through America to promote her latest book on being a transgendered Republican. And she can’t find a women’s bathroom that she’s allowed to pee in anywhere in South Dakota….”

        Don’t worry. The Republicans will kindly hand her a bucket that says “Thriving Economy” and shoo her into the woods.

    The same woman whose dream is to work for Ted Cruz is concerned that Hillary isn’t an ‘ally’? Someone needs to either get a clue, or stop talking about things she is obviously ignorant about. It is worrying that people must be watching this shit and believing her.

  20. Locke Lamora says:

    Do the Republicans have any redeeming qualities? Socially they are awful, fiscally they are afwul and the current top candidate seems to be slightly crazy. I mean, the Democrates are no sunshines ( they’re not nearly left enough for my taste) fur compared to the Republicans they seem wonderful.

    Caitlyn was, and is an idiot, just like the rest of her family.

    • GoodNamesAllTaken says:

      I think there are many Republicans who are good people. Fiscally conservative but socially liberal and all that. The problem is, the Republican Party decided that it would be a great idea to get more voters by turning “liberal” into a dirty word that meant “anti-Christian values.” They decided to invite every right wing nut job into the country into their house and now they’re surprised that the right wing nut jobs have taken over. There really is no place for the old school Republicans to go if they want to win. They need to decide – do I care enough about preserving my own wealth and/or fiscal conservatism to stand beside these people who don’t believe in evolution?

      • Locke Lamora says:

        I meant more the party, rather than individual people who vote Republican. Although I do have a problem with fiscal conservatism.
        I see what you mean though, it does seem that the party will have to go trough major changes if (when) they lose this election.

      • Lilacflowers says:

        I have a problem with “fiscal conservatives” who won’t fix our crumbling infrastructure but waste time and money on voting dozens of times on the same legislation that they know won’t pass just to “send a message.”

      • Who ARE these people? says:

        And it’s more than “believing in evolution.” It’s about understanding that being knowledgeable about evolution isn’t even a matter of belief!

        You described a disheartening number of self-interested people who think they are above the fray and vote only with their pocketbooks. The darn thing is, in the end, inequality will hurt them in some way too – they just don’t realize it.

      • lunchcoma says:

        I agree that’s a moral issue as well, Lilacflowers. I don’t think the Republican Party was always even as you describe, however. Dwight Eisenhower would horrify the modern GOP, and I doubt many of them would even tolerate the actual politician who was Ronald Reagan rather than the idol they’ve constructed of him.

        I have sympathy for people who joined the party and at one point had to leave it because it rejected them. At this point, though, I think most of those people have already left.

      • Susan says:

        Very well said GNAT. I really appreciate your comments, as even when you don’t agree with someone or something you never get into angry attack/paint with a broad brush mode like some of the posters on here.

  21. Lurker says:

    Dear Caitlyn,

    To quote Phoebe from Friends: “Hello, Kettle? This is Pot. You’re black.”

    Take a seat.

    Signed,

    Everyone

  22. littlemissnaughty says:

    Someone tell her that not openly saying you hate trans people does not mean you don’t. And um, isn’t Ted Cruz trying to close down every single women’s health clinic in the US? I think Hillary is a terrible candidate but my god, Caitlyn. Honey, get a grip. Just say “Yeah, I’m a woman but I have tons of money so I don’t even have to deal with most of the everyday sh*t women usually deal with. Cruz 2016!” At least be honest here.

    I look at the candidates on both sides and I don’t see how any of them really care about anyone. Men, women, children … who gives a f*ck. Bernie might care but if he ever made it into the White House, Congress would throw a hissy fit and call in sick for 4 years.

  23. Merritt says:

    Once again Caitlyn says something stupid. Life for women would be a nightmare under Ted Cruz. But what does Caitlyn care? Caitlyn has an established history of only caring about herself.

  24. javaj77` says:

    She’s still a conservative white man, at heart.

  25. Jayna says:

    Bruce was a 65-year-old Republican and Cate is a 66-year-old Republican. I’m sure she sits in front of Fox News every night. The gender changed, not the mindset of a Republican who is a wealthy, white, privileged senior citizen.

  26. anne_000 says:

    I remember a story about how Bruce was a member of an all-male golf club but that the issue of whether he’d be allowed to remain a member came up because gender-wise, he’s not a male anymore.

    The point of this story was about his hypocrisy. Back when Bruce was Bruce, he was OK with the golf club not allowing women members, and iirc, it also didn’t allow other minorities either or had a history of not doing so. But now that he is a she, would he understand this concept of exclusivity not just when it is relevant just to himself but to others too? Iirc, the article gave me the impression that she expected the club to make her an exception.

    So now that I see that Caitlyn said that Hilary wouldn’t care about other women, just herself, it irked me since Caitlyn and Bruce are exactly like what she described.

    Does Caitlyn not get it? The GOP and the rights of women? Who is fighting removing the taxation on female hygiene products and wanting them to still be labeled as luxury items even though the FDA doesn’t? Oh, but Caitlyn doesn’t get that because it’s not about her. It’s only about herself. I wonder if she expects the GOP to make laws exclusive to just herself? Does she expect a President Cruz to make specialized executive orders protecting just herself?

  27. LOLADOESTHEHULA says:

    Yikes…I mean, even as a non-American, I’m no fan of Hillary Queen-of-White-Feminism-and-Offensively-Superficial-Racial-Pandering Clinton (and those aren’t even her biggest crimes)…but Caitlin really is dumb as a box of rocks. I’m officially convinced there’s nothing but air up there. What kind of fevered delusions?

  28. Mimz says:

    Wow.. I have no knowledge or opinion on the US politics, but wow supporting a known anti LGBT? wow. That’s really, really smart of you Cait.
    But not surprising, I’ve been waiting for her to light up the fire and burn. Because that’s how dumb she is. I’m here sitting and watching. Why does she have a second season???

  29. Delta Juliet says:

    “Although she won’t be … she couldn’t care less about women. She only cares about herself.”

    Could also be said about Caitlin.

  30. Susan says:

    Here’s my problem: While I fundamentally do not agree with her, I would accept her opinions if she’d say logical things like, “my number one concern is Z, and that is why I am voting for X. While I don’t agree with this person on every.single.issue, I am voting based on what is important to me and what I feel will impact my life the most,” I would respect her opinion.

    That being said, she talks out of both sides of her mouth. How can you preach that you’re an LGBTQ activist and role model and yet not make that your most important “issue” with a candidate? I’m so confused.

  31. Another Anna says:

    Can someone put a muzzle on this dummy? Hillary is “no ally” because reasons but Ted Cruz, a person who supports laws that prevent women from making their own medical decisions, is? Get the f*** outta here, Caitlin.

  32. The Eternal Side-Eye says:

    WOOOW.

    I just don’t know who’s more pathetic. Her or the Log Cabin Republicans. So desperate to cling to a party that would be happy if they all stopped existing today.

    There aren’t enough words to describe what an idiot Caitlyn is for her comments, simply that I feel so sorry for the poor women roped into being her ‘trans friends’. It’s clear that Cait doesn’t give a real crap about what they’re going through or how her ‘I want a thriving economy’ Republicans treat them. Such a fucking idiot.

    • CK says:

      Definitely her. At least with the Log Cabin republicans, there is a tacit acceptance. They may want to fire you for being gay or rip apart your family, but at least they’re not actively suggesting that you would molest kids if allowed to use a gender appropriate bathroom.

      • The Eternal Side-Eye says:

        This is true.

        The best thing to come out of the LCR recently was them trying to get Donald Trump to clarify his comments on LGBT and Marriage Equality because they had previously felt he’d be an ally but his *cough* latest comments have them concerned.

        So I guess whenever a Republican alludes to a trans individual being a pedophile or rapist she’s just humming the tune to ‘God Bless America’ and thinking of what shoes to match with her nails.

    • Lilacflowers says:

      The Log Cabins are trying to bring change from within. Caitlyn doesn’t seem to think change is necessary

  33. feebee says:

    Every conservative guy cares about everyone’s rights? We have conservative “leaders” stating outright they wouldn’t attend a gay friend’s wedding… we have Ted Cruz wanting to rule the world probably with a biblical bent but HILLARY isn’t good for women? Lord have mercy, some dumbasses might actually pay heed to this stupid idiot.

    I don’t know in which universe Ted Cruz is better for women than Hillary Clinton.

    • Cam says:

      Hilary’s fine for women as long as they don’t get in the way of her or her husband’s pursuit of the presidency.

  34. holly hobby says:

    Please stop talking now!

  35. CK says:

    I wonder if the Kardashian-Jenners can get a two for one therapy special for Caitlyn and Kanye. Both are clearly delusional.

  36. yup says:

    Why does the LGBT community accept this? It’s like the Black community accepting Donald Trump because he has a fake tan.

  37. Maum says:

    ‘Republicans want a thriving economy so that every trans person can get a job’

    BWAHAHAHAHAHAHAHAHAHAH!

    By the way when was the last time Caitlyn had a job? I guess she’s a senior citizen now but wasn’t Bruce a house husband for years?

    • ViktoryGin says:

      Word.

      Just tone-deaf. It’s not a weak economy that’s going to deny a trans person a job. It’s the systematic discrimination (despite 15th ammendment). Not to mention she built her wealth as a straight man! Bruce wouldn’t have had the same success had he transitioned earlier and hasn’t had a traditional job…perhaps ever.

    • Bess says:

      Not to mention the fact that the economy has historically performed much better under Democratic presidents versus one from the GOP.

  38. ViktoryGin says:

    Caitlin dowsn’t realize that her rich white male card was revoked when she transitioned. It wasn’t politically corrrect to say last year, but this has alway been my bone of contention with her. She lived most of her life as a white male of privilege, therefore having the convenient option to be completely impervious to the challenges faced by those in circumstances that our establishment has historically at best ignored and at worst systematically disenfranchised. SHE DOES not know what it’s like to have her rights challenged and denied or experience being regarded as a second class citizen. She even said herself that she gets less flack for being transgendered than republican. THIS ALONE SHOULD HIGHLIGHT HER SINGULAR PRIVILEGE! And yet this irony is lost on her. The only positive I see in this is trans people are allowed to be a-holes, too. Progress :/

    • Magnoliarose says:

      You just articulated what I was thinking but couldn’t find the right words. So true.

  39. MARKWEER says:

    Christ on a crutch. I will give Caitlyn this much. She continues to bring the foolishness. It’s time to call a spade a spade. There is NO WAY in hell she can even begin to comprehend what it means to be a man/woman or Trans to be frank with you. I am a out gay male (African-American at that) and from an early age I’ve done the pride walks, the million man stuff & a whole bunch of the other things that one chooses to do when you are young and believe in making the world a better place for you and others. During that time you meet with other marginalized youth, feminists, other ethnicities religions sexes etc. While you may not understand completely what the other disenfranchised groups are going through you at least try to walk a mile in their shoes. The point I’m getting to is that Caitlyn has done nothing remotely like this. She hasn’t interacted over the years with any of these groups, has no understanding or the empathy required to make the statements she makes & she’s really beginning to really tread into waters she has no business dipping her toes in. While Bruce was republican he was nowhere near as vocal as he is now and Caitlyn’s (who has only been a female/sort of) new voice he has is loud, abrasive and polarizing. Hillary may not be everyone’s choice, but Cruz is definitely an enemy to LGBT and any one who isn’t Ted Cruz.

  40. WTF says:

    Whats making me mad is that she’s getting a pass because she’s trans. If any other rich white celebrity said the things that she’s said they would be rightfully shunned and ridiculed. The fact that she’s trans is making people stop and scratch their heads instead.
    Enough already! She’s a privileged, racist, misogynist – STFU

  41. NotSoSocialButterfly says:

    Shut up, Caitlyn.
    Seriously, just shut up.

  42. Alexis says:

    Oh, please. Hilary isn’t perfect on women’s rights, but she’s done plenty of great work. Caitlyn on the other hand is a horrible, selfish person who doesn’t care about anyone or anything but herself and her own privilege. You would think that her eyes would have opened ever so slightly since coming out, but not so much.

  43. Guesto says:

    Whoa, this vapid trick really goes out of her way to bring the mindless stupidity.

  44. Bess says:

    Such astounding ignorance!

    At least Hillary Clinton succeeded at her main job, raising an educated daughter who hasn’t posed nude or made a sex tape.

    • Pickles says:

      OMG…I have no words. The Trump thing is starting to make sense. This is evil personified.

      • Nike says:

        Right? I don’t know why more people haven’t seen that video. It says everything. It should be shared, and shared.

  45. Mysons says:

    She is viewing the republican party thru rose tinted glasses. Republicans have dine everything they can to attack women and lgbt peoples. Defunding planned parenthood, their religious freedom laws that target everyone who is not heterosexual and trans. All the trans bathroom bills and refusing protections from discrimination for trans people. Her wealth and privilege have made her naive and delusional when it comes to republicans.

  46. NewWester says:

    After watching last night’s “I am Cait” , Caitlyn may lose a few of her friends if she doesn’t start to open her mind more. Candis seemed very upset and Jennifer Boylan was interviewed in the Advocate saying she nearly quit the show because of Caitlyn’s attitude.
    Everyone has a right to their opinion but Caitlyn is not even trying to understand what the other woman are saying. She seems so wrapped up in her own privileged world

  47. Dangles says:

    “March 2015: Who could have expected Hillary Clinton would be in the fight of her political life against a 74 year old Jewish socialist.

    And that it would be POC who are saving her ass and not women!”

  48. The Original Mia says:

    All I could do when I read the headline was squint my eyes and sneer. Bye Felicia. Have a couple of stadium full of seats. Yo’ ass don’t care about your own children. Yet, I’m to believe you know best for women and who we should vote for. And you’re supporting Ted Cruz? Gurl…bye.

  49. stella in nh says:

    Caitlyn Jenner is as vapid as the rest of the kartrashian clan. She does nothing for women or the trans community. She has been in a vacuum of privilege for so long that she cannot connect with any issues. She needs to go away.

  50. Grump says:

    Goddamn you Caitlyn.
    I rooted for you when the tabloids were attacking you.
    I defended you when my family thought you were a “freak.”
    I educated myself about appropriate pronoun usage and gender theory.
    And now you go and do this dumb shit. Or, rather, continue to do this dumb shit.
    But it’s my fault. You are as you have always been. You were a dumb, privileged, selfish dude. Now you’re a dumb, privileged, selfish woman.
    I hate the lee-way I instinctively give underdogs.

    • Magnoliarose says:

      I think you hit on what a lot of people feel. So many people I know had to broaden their comfort zone with her, especially those who remember the Olympic hero. Even people who thought they were open minded discovered their own limitations with the transgender issue. It was good in that way but I don’t feel she uses her opportunity to help her community where and when it counts. But then too maybe the lesson is the outer may change but the negative character traits don’t necessarily.

  51. NeoCleo says:

    Seriously, this is not a smart woman.

  52. jc126 says:

    Jenner is concerned about someone who supposedly “couldn’t care less about women”? That’s rich coming from someone who bailed on multiple wives and children. That’s not caring about women, in a very personal sense.

  53. jilljill says:

    All she cares about is hair, makeup and clothes. She is clueless on what other Trans people have to go through when they don’t have to millions od dollars and the influence she has. I sure hope no one considers her the spokes person for Trans people because she is not helping their cause at all.

  54. M79 says:

    I’m fine with Kaitlyn’s transition. I am fine with her being a Republican. LGBT people are as diverse as people from any other group, we all aren’t the same politically and she has every right. But it’s simply untrue to say that Hillary doesn’t care about women. She has been fighting all her life for women. Looking forward to seeing her in the White House.

    • Cam says:

      Ask Juanita Broaddrick, Eileen Wellstone, Carolyn Moffett, Elizabeth Ward Gracen, Paula Jones, Kathleen Willey, and Gennifer Flowers among others how much Hillary fights for women.

  55. foxface says:

    Hillary Clinton is a war mongering fanatic.

  56. biz says:

    this is comedic

  57. christina says:

    Actually, Hillary could care much less. Caitlyn is a moronic, entitled, smug, woman.

      A woman? I could dress up in a furry costume and eat nuts all day, but that wouldn’t make me a squirrel.
