In a recent rather gushing interview by Dawn Ennis of the Advocate Caitlyn Jenner let it be known that she is backing the vehemently anti-gay Ted Cruz for the 2016 Presidential race and wants to be his “Trans-Ambassador“.
“I like Ted Cruz,” she declares. “I think he’s very conservative, and a great constitutionalist, and a very articulate man. I haven’t endorsed him or anything like that. But I also think, he’s an evangelical Christian, and probably one of the worst ones when it comes to trans issues.”
“I get it. The Democrats are better when it comes to these types of social issues. I understand that.” So why support Republicans? “Number one, if we don’t have a country, we don’t have trans issues. We need jobs. We need a vibrant economy. I want every trans person to have a job. With $19 trillion in debt and it keeps going up, we’re spending money we don’t have. Eventually, it’s going to end. And I don’t want to see that. Socialism did not build this country. Capitalism did. Free enterprise. The people built it. And they need to be given the opportunity to build it back up.”
Jenner reveals she met Cruz prior to her transition, more than a year ago, “and he was very nice.”
“Wouldn’t it be great, let’s say he goes on to be president,” she tells me in relating a conversation on the tour bus. “And I have all my girls on a trans issues board to advise him on making decisions when it comes to trans issues. Isn’t that a good idea?” she asked me.
“You’re going to be Ted Cruz’s trans ambassador?”
“Yes, trans ambassador to the president of the United States, so we can say, ‘Ted, love what you’re doing but here’s what’s going on.’”
That ANYONE has anything to do with this vapid, money grubbing, greedy right-wing idiot is beyond me. Our community MUST stop legitimizing her immediately. Which includes turning off that self promoting trash “I Am Cait”.

Caitlin Jenner had the support of the media and the world during her struggles. Lot of us who fought for acceptance and equal rights did not experience support rather opposition and that’s why Jenner is not in a position to talk about the struggle to be accepted, and her transition is not worthy of respect.
Does Jenner think money and celebrity buys a person a “get out of LGBT card”…? Like since she can afford the surgery and cosmetics to “pass,” and because she apparently hates herself, she can prance into Cruz’s campaign like none of the awful, evil things he says about LGBT apply to her…? I don’t get it.
I thought the caricature of an economic argument made any sense, her reasoning might be worth considering. It just isn’t.
I am no fan of Jenner. But I respect Jenner’s right to back who Jenner wishes to back. What I take issue with is how Will Kohler can state that he has fought for such things as AIDS and trans-equality, yet can easily judge and call names to a Republican candidate.
No one says that you have to like Cruz. But if you fight hate with hate, then you are a hater as well, and no better than the people you are against.
True experience is the best teacher
