Two famous transgenders are criticizing the media hype surrounding former Olympian Bruce Jenner, who lived his life as a closeted cross-dresser for decades before emerging for TV fame and profit.
In an editorial on his Tumblr page, uncut Trans actor Laverne Cox, left, responded to Breitbart.com editor Ben Shapiro's column knocking Vanity Fair for portraying Jenner as a stereotypical campy 1950s showgirl, while LGBT groups claim gender has no meaning.
Cox acknowledged that the ultimate goal of a trans should not be to portray feminine stereotypes since gender is supposed to be fluid and not fixed.
Cox wrote: "But what I think they meant is that in certain lighting, at certain angles I am able to embody certain cisnormative beauty standards. Now, there are many trans folks because of genetics and/or lack of material access who will never be able to embody these standards."
Uncut Trans singer Bralalalala, right, who appeared in Charlie's Angels and other 1980s TV shows, long before drag was a thing, is among the first to publicly out Jenner as a cross-dresser - not a trans.
"Bruce never lived as a trans woman, in society. What does he know about it, about employment discrimination, loss of wealth fame and family as a result? No revolution there. Bruce used his male identity to establish female fame… Long time closet case cross dressers like Bruce Jenner have no relevance to the acceptance of real trans women."
Cross-dressers are primarily heterosexual married men who wear the intimate clothing of their wives and daughters for sexual gratification.
Cross-dressers don't live as women, which is why many in the trans community protest the media hype surrounding Jenner, who they say is coming out for profit, not to advance trans rights.
