Who needs therapy? Apparently, Caitlyn Jenner doesn’t according to Radar Online, August 10, 2015. Caitlyn has such a busy social calendar filled with business meetings, social engagements, and filming for “I Am Cait,” something had to give. She hasn’t been to her therapy sessions in quite a while and the Kardashian/Jenner families are worried. Caitlyn has become consumed over her image and even though she has a full-time Glam team, it is it is a hard job to look her best at all times. She makes sure that she is seen wearing the latest designer clothes when she leaves the house. Going out to elegant dinners has become a top priority.
However, that’s not all that is worrying Caitlyn’s family. They are concerned how she will cope with the fact the ratings for her reality TV docuseries “I Am Cait,” have dropped dramatically. Caitlyn also has the transgender community to please. They are not happy with her representation of them either. Many transgenders accused Caitlyn of being out of touch with their needs. One example from her TV show really caused the transgender community to openly criticize her. Caitlyn and her female group of friends talked about transgender and jobs. One told her that many transgender people were homeless and unemployed. Another suggested that the focus should be on entry-level jobs. Caitlyn made the remark that people on social programs often made more there than they would working a job. She said they then get dependent on the social programs and stop looking for work. One of the female transgender voiced her concern on Caitlyn’s views and said that she lives in a bubble. Caitlyn doesn’t realize that being on social programs is the only way that many transgender people survive. “If Cait’s going to be a spokesperson for the community, this is something she’s going to have to understand.”
However, Caitlyn believes she has everything covered with the Human Rights Campaign and social media to help her along the way. A source told Radar Online, “The Human Rights Campaign is helping Caitlyn to repair her image and is making sure that everything she says from now on in is congruent with the ultimate view of the transgender community as a whole.”
Do you think it is a good idea for Caitlyn to stop going to her therapy sessions? Do you feel she is out of touch and because of all the money she has, it has limited her understanding of what it takes for the average transgender person to survive? Post your thoughts below in the comments section.
