A Day Late and 2 Balls Short: Caitlyn Jenner Finally Admits Trump Is Against the LGBT Community

But does she really mean it or is this just a PR stunt?

From Jenner’s op-ed for the Washington Post:

I believed I could work within the party and the Trump administration to shift the minds of those who most needed shifting. I made many trips to Washington to lobby and educate members of Congress, other Washington policymakers and powerful influencers.

These meetings were generally positive and almost always led to encouraging conversations. Despite the criticism I received from segments of the LGBTQ community for engaging with this administration, I remained hopeful for positive change.

Sadly, I was wrong. The reality is that the trans community is being relentlessly attacked by this president. The leader of our nation has shown no regard for an already marginalized and struggling community. He has ignored our humanity. He has insulted our dignity.

He has made trans people into political pawns as he whips up animus against us in an attempt to energize the most right-wing segment of his party, claiming his anti-transgender policies are meant to “protect the country.” This is politics at its worst. It is unacceptable, it is upsetting, and it has deeply, personally hurt me.

Boo-fucking-hoo, Caitlyn you fake human being. You are nothing more than an example of a person without empathy only changing their mind when it happens to them.

And notice not a single time did she write “the LGBT community at large was right.”

Go fuck off, you publicity whore.
