I just watched the latest 'I am Cait'. While I appreciate the attention Caitlyn Jenner has brought to the trans cause, I see a problem arising.
There is a lot of emphasis on poor, unemployed and homeless transgender people. The show focuses on Cait's republican views about welfare. Much is made of her 'privlages'.
The problem I see is the lack of perspective. While they try to show that Cait is learning about trans people, it's really giving the general public the opinion that being trans means being a burden on society. People are going to come away from this thinking that Cait is the exception and that the majority of trans people are poor, unemployeeable wretches of society.
This could not be further from the truth. Of course a percentage of us fit that description, but I do not believe that is any greater a percentage than the general population.
This is a bad case of antidotal pseudo-science.
