LGBT Hate For Caitlyn Jenner

When Caitlyn Jenner  came out as transgender, many were shocked and some came out attacking. When Caitlyn Jenner came out as a Republican, the hate doubled. Caityln seems unable to do anything right. She is being put down because of her life choices, political affiliation, and her wealth.

There are those who can't seem to understand why anyone LGBT would be a Republican. The answer is simple, there are many issues, and those affecting the LGBT community are only a few. Yes, of course issues that personally affects someone  seems huge, but economic issues affect everyone. National security and economics are the driving issues that pushes LGBT to be Republican. Many tend to be more libertarian because they understand social issues that affect the LGBT community. You might not realize this from watching television and reading the news, but there are many pro choice republicans. They are usually quiet on the subject because, for now, abortion is legal and looks to remain that way.

Even when we disagree, there should be some civility. The hate coming from some in the LGBT community is no worse than we see from far right bigots. The hate between the left and right must end or it will tear the country apart. Because of the hateful rhetoric coming from the  LGBT community and progressives in general, it just pushes those on the right farther away and creates animosity for the LGBT community that increases the divide.
