    This is kind of a touchy subject and it seems that few people are more touchy these days than the trans community. And perhaps for good reason. There treatment in general is horrendous.

    But to look at it from another perspective it seems that Halloween costumes are not meant to mock or demonize anyone. Caitlyn Jenner is a celebrity and I would think that this costume is meant to reflect the nations interest in her transformation and very public coming out. She was a celebrity before and is a celebrity now. I don’t necessarily agree that “people use their most twisted imaginations to pretend to be villains and monsters” on Halloween. I would be much more offended if the Caitlyn Jenner costume featured boobs or penises that could be attached and detached. But until we see the actual costume I think we should reserve judgement. If a generic transgender costume was created (whatever that might be) then I would be much more concerned. But again Caitlyn is a national celeb.

What do you think?
