Caitlyn Jenner has been the focus of constant public interest since she first announced her transition last year. Between her E! show I Am Cait and her frequent appearances on Keeping Up With The Kardashians with her children, she is very much in the limelight. However, her discussions with the press have been few and far between. Which is part of what makes a recent interview with Advocate so enlightening. In it, Jenner opens up about everything from her facial feminization surgery to all of the new knowledge she has gained about trans issues since she transitioned. In a particularly interesting passage, Jenner talks about how her conservative political beliefs haven’t changed much since last year.
“I get it. The Democrats are better when it comes to these types of social issues. I understand that.“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…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.”
