    I do rather need a place to vent about things and this looks like a good place. Mind you this will probably get political and i'm willing to bet I have some unpopular views but I also know I have some very popular views.

    Let's start this off with Caitlyn Jenner. She's being praised for being so courageous and open about her transition. She's being vocal about transgender rights and making a difference. ESPN is even giving her an award and calling her a hero.

    Let me make something perfectly clear: Caitlyn Jenner is not a hero.
    She only came out when she had the means to transition without issue, having the money and means to get it done rather easily and far enough removed from her family that they could not impede her decisions in anyway. On top of that she could drop off the face of the Earth and no one would really recognize her on the street. She could live a media free life if she decided to.

    The real heroes are the men and women who start their transition young, when their families don't support them and their classmates harass and abuse them for being trans. The people who make it through those hellos and come out alive and stronger for it. The people who never stop fighting for transgender rights without the money or influence to protect themselves from those that truly wish them harm.

    In short, Caitlyn Jenner can fuck off and the spotlight should be put on those who truly struggle and fight for what's right.
