Caitlyn Jenner: ‘The antidote to shame is our pride’

Caitlyn Jenner has really hurt herself and her credibility as an LGBT activist with her politics. It’s a huge turnoff for many. But she does have some worthwhile things to say about coming out as transgender in a new LGBT Pride Month essay. Here are some excerpts: I’m very proud of the things I have been able to accomplish in my life — from winning the Games, to raising a tremendous family, to eventually getting to the point where I could live my life authentically. It was a long struggle, but I finally got here. After coming out and transitioning, my life became much simpler. At this point I was proud; I had struggled for so long, my entire life, and it’s such a good feeling not to carry the burden of secrets anymore. I can just wake up in the morning, be myself, and live my life. In the trans community, we need to stand up together and be proud of who we are. We will not accept being on the margins of society anymore. We reject the shame that many still try to inflict on us. The antidote to that shame is our pride.

    She does have some worthwhile things to say but who writes them for her?

  2. Caitlyn-how can you live authenticity if you support and vote for the party that wants to strip you of your rights as a trans woman. I’d love to know how you marry those two diametrically opposite positions.

  3. Actions speak louder than words!
    Time for Caitlyn to start putting her words and philosophies into real and constructive activism and stop being a petty spectacle. There is so much she could do to strengthen the cause in a positive manner.

  4. Anything, and I do mean anything, to stay in the limelight. Go away!
