Why Caitlyn Jenner May Be Bad For The Trans Community
It's been almost five months since Caitlyn Jenner came out as transgender in her highly-watched interview with Diane Sawyer. It's been about three months since her racy photo spread was released in Vanity Fair announcing her new name to the world. It's been about two months since her reality show, I Am Cait, premiered, and about a week since it concluded its first season. It seems like we can't make it through a full 24 hours without seeing some kind of coverage about Ms. Jenner. If we thought the rampant speculation about her gender identity reached the extremes of media obsession before she came out as transgender, then the coverage on her afterwards sets a new standard for celebrity media saturation — and I'm not sure that's a positive thing for the trans community.
