Some People Just Don’t Get it: Call Me Caitlyn is a Phenomenon to Embrace

This is the Kardashian-related news I want to see. Who cares that Kanye and Kim will have to consult a compass to named their second child, when there’s something as big as this happening? Jenner has continued the transition from male-to-female and has revealed a name-change, now foregoing the previous name “Bruce”. On the front cover of Vanity Fair, under her inspiring photo, it says: “Call me Caitlyn.”

In her interview with Vanity Fair, Caitlyn admitted that as “Bruce” she was living a constant lie. She says she finally feels free to be herself after keeping her secret for so long: “If I was lying on my deathbed and I had kept this secret and never ever did anything about it, I would be lying there saying, ‘You just blew your entire life. You never dealt with yourself,’ and I don’t want that to happen.”

Caitlyn is already getting tons of support for her cover shoot and name-change. Vanity Fair’s tweet of the cover has gone viral and has been re-tweeted over 32 thousand times. People are commenting on her bravery, her style, and even her resemblance to the goddess-on-earth Jessica Lange

Naturally, there are still people who will rain on this parade. It’s no secret that members of the trans community get treated poorly in the media, on the internet and in real life. Just watch this Fox News clip where the cover photo sends news anchor Neil Cavuto into a tizzy. Cavuto ignores his coworker’s praise of Jenner and mutters about the fall of Rome, as if having an openly transitioning celebrity on a magazine is the sign of a crumbling society.

Maybe he’s not transphobic and he’s just upset about Fox’s coverage of Kardashian-related news. I’m sure that’s it, because Fox only reports on what’s important for society.

There seems to be an interesting phenomenon on Twitter where people don’t seem to understand how news works. They seem to think that we can only talk about one important issue at a time. If we talk about Caitlyn, how can we also talk about soldiers? What about Africa? Or Akon?

This one gets it:

This situation deserves attention. Who knows who Caitlyn could inspire? She could help lots of people in similar situations who struggle with the possibility of publicly changing their gender-identities. In the end, it is just as wonderful that she has finally found the way to help herself.
