Mere weeks since we were applauding Caitlyn Jenner in her decision to run for the Governor of California, now she has attracted the ire of the LGBTQ+ community by agreeing with the current attack on trans kids.

Reality star Jenner who is not only trans but also an Olympic champion so knows what sport can do to benefit a person, says that it is a ‘question of fairness’ when it comes to trans girls competing in school sports. 

Twitter took umbrage at her remarks with writer Charlotte Clymer saying: “Medical organizations, feminist organizations, and prominent cis women athletes, including Billie Jean King and Megan Rapinoe, have all spoken out against banning trans girls from sports. There is no evidence this is a problem anywhere. Caitlyn Jenner is dead wrong on this.”

Also blasting Jenner was LGBTQ+ advocate and Star Trek actor, George Takei who commented: “Caitlyn Jenner is no friend of the LGBTQ community. Don’t call her an activist. She’s a menace.”
