President Barack Obama Supports Caitlyn Jenner!
We know that the Jenner/Kardashian clan has supported their father Bruce Jenner transitioning into a woman. But I do not think that anyone was quite prepared to meet Caitlyn Jenner, his female counterpart revealed on the cover of “Vanity Fair.” I think that she looked gorgeous but you know who else is supporting Caitlyn and her transformation? President Barack Obama. Caitlyn came out as a female in a Diane Sawyer interview. She then went on to have a two-part “Keeping Up With the Kardashians” special where he explained the transition to his Kardashian side of the family, including two daughters with ex-wife Kris Jenner. His four Jenner children, Cassandra, Burt, Brandon and Brody have been openly supportive and it took a while for step-daughter Khloe to fully accept this change. Step-daughter Kim Kardashian West has been the most supportive with help from husband Kanye.
It is all about acceptance and President Obama took to Twitter to commend Caitlyn: “It takes courage to share your story.” He also went on to tweet the importance of being true to yourself and equal rights. “Your story matters in the fight for LGBT rights,” Obama added. Speaking of Twitter, Bruce created an account for Caitlyn Jenner and within a matter of hours, acquired over one million followers. That means that she beats out the President and puts him in number two. That is major. Caitlyn became the family member to ultimately break the internet. I think that this trumps the announcement that Kim and Kanye are expecting their second baby in the Fall/Winter.
No word on the gender of the baby but people are already making name jokes as their first daughter is named North. Maybe an ode to Bruce and/or Caitlyn? We shall see over time. So, what do you think of the President’s support of Caitlyn Jenner and the transgender community? I think that it shows how far we have come as people as all rights are human rights. I commend, again, both Caitlyn and President Obama!
