Oh wait, we can have good representation in the media. Just sadly Laverne Cox doesn't show up in the media as much as Caitlyn Jenner does.

(My bold)

To hell with Caitlyn Jenner...just the few minutes I've spend googling Laverne Cox has been fascinating...and her twin brother M Lamar.

My trans heros are real people living the difficult life, without millions of dollars and without support. I said as much and it was not welcomed.
What a train wreck!

Same here. I said something along the same lines and got a lot of grief. What puzzles me is that millions of people watch that tripe on tv.

I only stumbled over Laverne Cox when I watched Orange is the new black. And I was always wondering if they did great makeup or if she was really trans. And then there was an episode or two that were about her character's past so to say and I was like "ah ok, so great makeup then". Didn't change my few on the series or her character at all. Much much later I found out that she actually had a twin brother who played her in the show in those episodes.
Pretty cool, if you ask me. Must have a great family. Or so I hope.

The Kardashians/Jenners are on my list of top 20 people I would love to see get thrown off of the world and never heard from again.

Where are we going and why am I in this hand basket?

Presumably you were chastised by cisgendered people who were also fans of the show?

I thnk the publicity it provided the transgendered community was the be-all end all for some people. I just saw past it for myself.

Then let me give you a protip:

Don't watch it. Ever. It is the singularity of stupidity and ignorance.

I'm glad I missed that trainwreck. I was probably driving down a dirt road and not really giving a shit.

Good lord, expelling TV from my life ten years ago was a good thing, it seems.

Caitlyn would speak to me if I believed, but my faith is weak.

36+ years ago, when I got married, I didn't even own a TV set. I worked as a mechanic in those days, making pretty good money, and was going to college full time (GI Bill didn't pay for everything). Those both took a lot of my time. Then, I spotted this doll in my Modern Physics class, and thought, "Her for me!". After we got married, she had to have a TV, so her dad gave us an old B&W one that he had had stored in his attic! Laugh out load I didn't want to spring for a TV; most programming was already shit, AFAIWC. It hasn't improved in the intervening years, IMO. You can get an eyeball on those Kardashian's shenanigans while you're in line at the grocery store, in the tabloids. That's already a whole lot more than I ever wanted to know about somebody else's tiny little lives made to look "cool" or "important", in one header and picture. "I'll take vicarious fame for $10, Alex." That one, I remember from a long time ago, of course.
