Caitlyn Jenner, a senior citizen has no
clue how puberty blockers work or what they do.

As has been reported in numerous outlets, Caitlyn Jenner has said that allowing transgender girls to compete in athletics is unfair.

That’s why I oppose biological boys who are trans competing in girls’ sports in school. It just isn’t fair. And we have to protect girls’ sports in our schools.

Jenner, who filed paperwork to run for governor of California is 71 years of age. She transitioned at the age of 65. The fact that Jenner is transgender does not make her an expert regarding the gender identity of minors.

Caitlyn Jenner clearly does not understand how testosterone suppression affects adolescent transgender girls. She got what she wanted: Attention. After all, nothing compelled her to comment on the issue. Common decency dictates that she keep her mouth shut.

Ordinarily conservative Christian outlets look for ways to intentionally misgender transgender persons. CBN manages two paragraphs without the use of any pronouns.

“Ms. Jenner needs a proverbial wakeup call.”

On the other hand, Charisma News kept to form. It applied male pronouns to Jenner.

Whack job Michael Brown avoided pronouns. Then he went about deadnaming Dr. Rachel Levine. According to Brown, some LGBTQ people misgendered Ms. Jenner. If that is true (and you never know with Michael Brown) it is wrong.

Dr. Jack Turban is an expert regarding transgender youth. In a piece at Scientific American, Turban wrote:

Transgender girls on puberty blockers … have negligible testosterone levels.

Aside from trans girls not having a competitive advantage, this is a manufactured controversy. Jonathan Capehart called it “catnip.”

There simply does not exist an onslaught of transgender girls dominating athletic competition. When questioned, Republican politicians have been unable to identify any controversy in their state.

Alliance Defending Freedom, an anti-LGBTQ hate group, created this attack on transgender kids while suing in Connecticut to overturn performance records where trans girls competed. I have been unable to identity any comparable issue in the remaining 49 states.

Caitlyn Jenner is uninformed and looking for a way to make some noise. Jenner’s judgment is just awful considering how vulnerable trans youth are. Jenner refers to “biological boys” which is to use the language of bigotry.

Ms. Jenner needs a proverbial wakeup call.
