After a bumpy start, E! network’s I Am Cait became more informative and less like a Stayfree maxi-pad advertisement. No more long shots of Caitlyn/Bruce in a flowing dress on the cliffs above Malibu! Hurray! Sunday’s episode centered around Cait’s knowledge of the Transgender community in Los Angeles and becoming a leader for the men and women who struggle with gender identity issues.
Caitlyn invited a group of Transgender “girlfriends” (Hired by E!) out to her Malibu estate to discuss social and economic issues facing the community. Having only been “out” for two weeks at the time of filming, Caitlyn Jenner had no real knowledge of Transgender struggles, except perhaps finding shoes in a size 13 wide. With her extreme wealth Cait was able to transition in a bubble, where everything is sunshine, public acceptance, Prada, and glam rooms. The ladies who came to lunch had very different stories to tell with experiences ranging from work in the sex trade, homelessness, suicide attempts, and being victims of hate crime.

Caitlyn Jenner’s Conservative Republican politics also came out to play after she criticized social programs for Transgender people in the group of mixed women. The faces were priceless. It’s surprising that no one really hit back at Jenner. Perhaps they were too stunned? One of Cait’s guests in attendance during those comments is noted Transgender activist Jennifer Finney Boylan. She spoke to E! cameras during a talking head interview segment during the episode.
“Caitlyn has every right to be just as conservative as she chooses, but many transgender men and women need social programs to survive. That’s nothing to be ashamed of,” Jennifer Finney Boylan says in the one-minute clip released ahead of Sunday’s episode.“Living in the bubble is an impediment to understanding other people. Cait’s going to be a spokesperson for the community. This is something she’s going to have to understand,” Boylan added.
Caitlin has also developed a crush on another Transgender friend named Candis Cayne which is odd.
Cait has insisted all along that “she” has no sexuality and refers to herself as asexual. Candis is gorgeous and at least 20 years younger than Bruce/Cait. Her last boyfriend was a DJ and he was smoking hot,so we understand Candis prefers men! I was unable to ascertain weather Ms.Cayne has had gender re-assignment to remove her penis, and a vagina created surgically.Bruce typically loved women and Caitlyn obviously finds women attractive too. Caitlyn’s crush on Candis would make sense if Candis now has female genitalia. They have been seen together in public frequently over the past few months, so perhaps the rumors and playful editing are true?
Next week’s episode features more of the road trip, and jealousy erupts between Ronda and Caitlyn. Sounds more Kardashian-esque than informative, but we will wait and see! Stop looking at the outside Caitlyn and start working on the inside. Until next week……B3
