My thoughts on Caitlyn Jenner

Hello everyone. How are you? I do apologize for not blogging as much as I should be, as I have been extremely busy. It's not even Summer and yet it feels like it already. Only a few more days. I have so much to update you on, but in the meantime, I wanted to touch base on a subject recently. A few of my readers have asked me about my thoughts on Caitlyn Jenner (formerly Bruce Jenner).

Well, a few years ago I was walking through downtown Pittsburgh on Liberty Avenue. From afar I saw this stunningly beautiful African American woman. She looked like a hybrid of Iman and Tyra Banks. She was gorgeous. I admired everything about her, especially her free spirited personality and confidence. As I walked closer to her and went to compliment her, she complimented me and said she loved my eyes and eyebrows. What I didn't realize was, she was actually born a he and was/is a transgendered female.

Throughout the years, I kept in contact with her. She is one of the nicest people that I have ever met. She has a charismatic personality and just always brings a good energy to those she is around. She never talks bad about anyone and to be honest, when I hung out with her, I had a lot of fun. I really didn't look at her as being transgendered because I don't believe in judging anyone. That is, of course, if they are ignorant and give me a reason to do so.

I am not transgendered, so I cannot comment on what these people go through on a daily basis because I simply do not know, however; I believe that they should be whoever they choose to be or feel that they are. Why? Because in the end, it makes them happy. Life without happiness is like a relationship without love. If you can't be happy, you won't live the life you want and as a result, you will suffer in silence.

I don't believe that transgendered people should have to suffer because you don't understand their situation or cannot relate to them. Even though I cannot relate to them, I would never ever judge them because I don't know what they are going through. To judge someone without knowing them, let alone without walking in their shoes is ignorant.

As Bruce Jenner was a hero to Americans and individuals around the world in the 70s era for his contributions to sports, Caitlyn Jenner is currently a hero to those transgendered people who feel the need to hide who they are simply because they are different and fear people will not embrace their differences. So, my opinion is, what she is doing for those people is a wonderful thing because she is the voice, the face, and the force for the T in the LGBT community.
