Bette Midler has to be one of the most kick-ass liberals ever!
Even when it comes to a topic most liberals are scared to speak out about, Bette can be counted on to send Tweets addressing the situation to her 700,000+ followers.
While we all know the story of Caitlyn Jenner, the transgender former Olympian, many people are unaware that she has ALWAYS voted against gay rights via the Republican party.
It doesn’t really matter to Jenner that the GOP waged war on LGBT rights decades ago; Jenner still says she is a traditionalist, and will continue to vote with the traditional party.
Someone should tell her there is nothing traditional about changing one’s gender.
Midler Tweeted this to the masses, shaming Jenner for being a dumbass:
Pretty amazing right?
This wasn’t the first time Jenner has spoken out about being “traditional,” as she says.
She was also on the Ellen Degeneres Show this year, leaving the host with no choice but to talk about the odd voting habits of an elderly white man turned diva.
While the interview was pretty uncomfortable, Ellen was nice enough to not put Jenner on blast too much.
The point was made though.
When Ellen mentioned that the GOP does not support LGBT rights, and will always fight against them, Caitlyn didn’t seem phased.
I mean think about it.
What does Caitlyn Jenner care about legislation?
She was able to do more in a couple months than most trans people are able to do in their entire lives.
She is sort of beyond needing legislation.
However, it’s sickening that she wouldn’t stand up for her fellow trans people who are less fortunate than she, and truly in need of legislation protecting their rights.
