Yes, I said it, Caitlyn Jenner. The former Bruce Jenner has finally physically transitioned and let “her” out of the closet making her debut on Vanity Fair magazine earlier this week. Good for him! or her? Right? Or not? Hmmm? Let’s be real…we ALL have something to say about this…EVERY. SINGLE. ONE. OF. US. Even if you say you “don’t care”, there must be a reason why you don’t care, because EVERYONE else seems to.
So, let’s “talk”. I’ve complied a few Caitlyn Jenner quotes from around the web. Let’s have this conversation in true WIRL fashion and talk about what we’re REALLY thinking. You may agree with comment 1, but strongly disagree with comment 5…let us know how you feel! Remember, no hate language is allowed according to WIRL Code, but, open, honest, genuine thoughts and feelings are, so be thoughtful of your words and WIRL from the heart.
Here’s how this will work:
