According to media reports, Caitlyn Jenner is arguably a hypocrite and confusing distraction. Her recent comments about same-sex marriage on the Ellen DeGeneres Show have polarized the lesbian, gay, bisexual and transgender (LGBT) community, which feels betrayed by her remarks. Social commentators also added their voice, saying that the reality TV star has shown double standards and only cares about herself.
Jenner, born William Bruce 65 years ago, has become a public figure after successfully changing her gender in June of this year. The former Olympian medalist and father of six has been praised for breaking social and biological barriers by becoming a transgender woman. However, her views on marriage as a union between a man and a woman have drawn sharp criticism.
DeGeneres could not hide her frustration over Jenner’s comments in an interview with Howard Stern. Referring to Jenner’s comments, Ellen said, “You are wanting people to understand and accept you, this is like really confusing to people. You still have a judgment about gay people and marriage.” This has perhaps led the media to label Jenner a hypocrite and confusing distraction.
Lance Bass, a former member of the band *NSYNC and spouse to Michael Turchin, has also described her as a distraction. “What I do not get is, she is sitting there, in Givenchy, full of make-up saying, ‘I am a traditionalist.’ I am like what!” he said in a recent interview. Bass, however, acknowledges that the celebrity needs “some room,” so that she can fully understand her new gender.
John Eskow, a writer, and musician, has gone further to describe Queen Cait as fake. In a recent post, Eskow portrayed her as “shallow, venal and corrupt.” He said the former Olympian medalist should have the courage to “live out her truth” and face the world as a man and not a woman with “fake breasts.” The social commentator views her transition as a side-show calculated to distract the limelight from “his” stepchild Kim Kardashian. This was also echoed by Kris Jenner, her former spouse when she broke down into tears on Cait’s show.
“You are sensitive and amazing to all these new people in your life, but you are not sensitive and amazing to the family you left behind…And the sum of it was you were a distraction,” cried Kris Jenner during the Aug. 23 episode of I Am Cait. This and other comments by the transgender activist have all been arguably viewed as coming from a hypocrite who chose to become a woman and a confusing distraction.
Meanwhile according to People Magazine, Jenner has been legally declared a woman by a Los Angeles County Superior Court judge. It is reported that the transgender activist will be formally called Caitlyn Marie Jenner. Despite huge public support for her gender change, the TV star is aware of “unwelcome negative attention from private citizens.” Her daughter, Kendall Jenner, 19, has also revealed the trauma her “father” has caused. “It’s kind of like mourning the loss of someone because it is. My dad is my dad but he is not there physically anymore,” she said in an interview with Women’s Wear Daily. Be that as it may, the world watches with keen eyes to see if she is a hypocrite or just a confusing distraction.
