Caitlyn Jenner Proves Liberal Tolerance Doesn’t Extend to Political Viewpoints

In an interview with the Advocate, Caitlyn Jenner admitted that she liked Ted Cruz.

“I like Ted Cruz,” Jenner said. “I think he’s very conservative and a great constitutionalist and a very articulate man. I haven’t endorsed him or anything like that. But I also think, he’s an evangelical Christian, and probably one of the worst ones when it comes to trans issues.”

Of course, many people in the LGBT community are outraged that a trans person can like Ted Cruz. He has been unsupportive of allowing trans students to use the bathroom and locker rooms of the gender that they identify with in public schools. On Twitter, there are a bunch of people accusing Caitlyn Jenner of being a white feminist–which is an insult in the feminist world. Other people said that she is not an ally and is hurting the trans community.

Why isn’t she “allowed” to like Ted Cruz?

She even acknowledges that he’s not good on trans issues. She likes him for other reasons, like his economic policies.

She goes on to say:

“Number 1, if we don’t have a country, we don’t have trans issues. We need jobs. We need a vibrant economy. I want every trans person to have a job. With $19 trillion in debt and it keeps going up, we’re spending money we don’t have. Eventually, it’s going to end. And I don’t want to see that. Socialism did not build this country. Capitalism did. Free enterprise. The people built it. And they need to be given the opportunity to build it back up.”

In others words, she is not a single issue voter. The economy affects us all and she correctly believes that capitalism brings about the most prosperity. She has held this view before and after her transition. Is there a political litmus test for transwomen? Where’s the #tolerance?

I have to say that I admire the braveness of Caitlyn Jenner. I know from personal experience that you can get a lot of crap for defending free market principles. I can’t imagine the backlash she gets in the LGBT community in Hollywood for doing so, on top of the criticism she receives from social conservatives.

Hey, Caitlyn, libertarians defend both free market capitalism AND social freedom. Check us out.
