  1. I honestly believe that this was an indoctrination attempt by one prominent trans identifying individual who happened to be visage of masculine strength to a generation. I believe that Caitlyn has been positioned by many in the trans community and many others to tell the world what the “new normal” is. This is best seen when Bruce is sitting in the same room with his mother and a he tells her that he is going to “drag you along with me”. He might as well be saying it to all of America and the world when he makes that very calculated statement. Then when Caitlyn goes to visit a family who lost a teen daughter to suicide, every bit of it seems so rehearsed. How about of he would take time to visit with the family that lost their mother Susan Howe in a car accident that was clearly the fault of Bruce Jenner? How about showing some compassion where it is so badly needed. Instead, Caitlyn chose to focus on Caitlyn, just as Bruce has always chosen to focus on Bruce. He is the epitome of male privilege now clothed in an air of faux femininity.

    1. The reviews are decidedly mixed.

      A good review: http://www.thedailybeast.com/articles/2015/07/22/i-am-cait-review-reality-tv-has-never-been-this-essential-or-this-good.html

      Mixed, but mostly positive: http://www.theguardian.com/tv-and-radio/2015/jul/27/i-am-cait-panel-review-trans-writers

      Mixed: http://www.npr.org/2015/07/26/426509229/i-am-cait-brave-tasteful-and-kind-of-boring

      The words that I haven’t seen in any reviews are “exploitative”, “circus”, etc. so at least that’s positive.
