Does Caitlyn Bother You? Chill Out.


Unless you live under a rock, you’ve seen the above image by now. The one time athletic superstar Bruce Jenner has now transitioned to Caitlyn Jenner. He is probably the most public, most covered transgender star we’ve all ever seen. His story is certainly big in the LGBT world, and he’s actually just a big story period.

This has really bothered some people. Actor Drake Bell made a fool of himself online, and there were plenty of negatives I saw even on my own Facebook and Twitter feeds. Some people are acting genuinely disgusted with it. They seem to actually be bothered by this picture of Caitlyn.

I have some pro-tip advice for them on how to react to this: don’t. Really, the old golden rule always said, if you have nothing nice to say, say nothing at all. Let’s start there. Look away, keep to yourself, hush up, however you want me to say it. Don’t out yourself as a transphobic bigot, it’s not something that looks good on you. Caitlyn Jenner is doing what she wants now, and you don’t have to follow it if you can’t take that.

Really though, i don’t think this should bother you that much. It’s important to accept people for who they are, and Caitlyn is Caitlyn. Embrace that there are people different than you out there, and that this is a good thing.
