How Caitlyn Jenner masterfully played us for suckers - The Week Magazine
"...That's exactly what Jenner is giving us and she's doing it masterfully, playing off America's addiction to what Tocqueville called the "perpetual utterance of self-applause." We love to feel good about ourselves. Conservatives satisfy the craving with gratuitous demonstrations of military prowess and unapologetic expressions of American exceptionalism. Liberals get it from grandiloquent displays of affirmation for the outsider an affirmation that just so happens to demonstrate the affirming liberal's own moral superiority.Gays and lesbians have been the outsiders of choice for a couple of decades. But now, as they finally merge with the mainstream, the transgendered look to be the next marginalized group in line for liberal protection from harm and defense against judgment and exclusion. And here comes Caitlyn, right on cue, ready and eager to pose as a pin-up poster girl for the cause. That her image will also serve to advance her career in exhibitionist television isn't so much a coincidence as the essence of what we've all experienced this week: the thoroughgoing commodification of one person's struggle with gender identity...." see full article

Why Caitlyn Jenner's transgender experience is far from the norm - CNN

"...The Internet cheered Caitlyn Jenner's coming out in Vanity Fair as a watershed moment in transgender visibility. It's not often that someone becomes a cover model and a trending topic on social media and breaks a Guinness World Record for fastest Twitter account to reach 1 million followers.But many were quick to point out that there's still a lot of work to be done for transgender equality. As transgender activists noted on social media, Jenner's experience is far from the reality of most transgender people, who can only dream of experiencing the same support from their families and society...." see full article

Caitlyn Jenner to be Honored with the Arthur Ashe Courage Award at The 2015 ... - MyFox Houston
"...Almost 40 years ago, Bruce Jenner's Olympic success came as a result of strengthening both his mind and body leading to his status as one of the world's greatest athletes, but the decision to publicly come out as a transgender woman took a different kind of courage and acceptance of one's self. To celebrate that bravery, ESPN today announced that Jenner will be presented with the Arthur Ashe Courage Award at The 2015 ESPYS Presented by Capital One. Presented annually to individuals whose contributions transcend sports, the Arthur Ashe Courage Award is the pinnacle of the sports celebration, which will be televised Wednesday, July 15, at 8 p.m. ET on ABC from Nokia Theatre L.A.

Transgender advocates praise Caitlyn Jenner's Vanity Fair cover
"...Media portrayals of transgender people have an enormous affect on how Americans view them because most don't know transgender people personally, Adams told The Times in April. While recent polls show that about 90% of Americans say they know someone who is lesbian, gay or bisexual, only 8% know someone who is transgender, according to GLAAD.After speaking to a counselor from the Los Angeles Gender Center who told her that second-guessing was normal and temporary, her panicked thoughts did not come back, Vanity Fair reported. If I was lying on my deathbed and I had kept this secret and never ever did anything about it, I would by lying there saying, You just blew your entire life. You never dealt with yourself,' and I don't want that to happen,' she told the magazine...." see full article

How Caitlyn Jenner and the Kardashians Are Changing the World
"...Poverty, homelessness, and suicide are some of the most serious problems people within the transgender community face. Forty-two to 46 percent of trans men and women have attempted suicide, a staggering rate in comparison to the 4.6 percent attempted suicide rates among the general population. Even among LGBTQ groups, the T can often be forgotten or minimized, and transgender people constantly face healthcare discrimination, job discrimination, and housing discrimination.With shows like Orange Is the New Black, Transparent, and now Keeping Up With the Kardashians, transgender issues are pushing their way to the forefront of entertainment news, a topic that was, until recently, widely avoided and underrepresented in the media. Critics have accused the family of doing all of this as yet another publicity stunt, but Caitlyn shut down that notion easily, saying, "You don't go out and change your gender for a TV show. It ain't happening." If anything, the massive audience the Kardashians and Jenners have been able to hold for so many years has made media coverage of Caitlyn and by default the transgender community a guarantee. And because she is open and eager to positively represent the community, we can't see a downside to the exposure. ..." see full article

Tampa Bay transgender community applauds Jenner

"There's still those equality issues that we have got to address so that people can be their authentic self and live happily and healthily that's what everyone deserves," said Rudisill.Brundage says one thing people need to understand about Jenner's gender transition: it didn't happen overnight. "It's not a phase. It's not a stint. It's an opportunity for someone to be their true authentic self and we should celebrate them."Jenner has not yet had gender reassignment surgery. That, other surgeries and hormone therapy can be expensive. Insurance sometimes will cover the procedure and hormone therapy, but not always.
