Interesting article by Hadley Freeman. It seems rare for anything other than 'isn't she wonderful/ brave/ inspirational' to get published in mainstream media at the moment.

I like that article.

The press seemed to insist on a very simplistic storyline - they can't allow for people to have both good and bad points. A headline can't say "it's more complicated than that".

Good on Hadley. I've never seen Caitlyn Jenner's reality programme before but here's a link to the comments about Donald Trump being good for women's issues (video halfway down).

Spoken like someone who has no idea what women's issues are and doesn't actually care.

I actually watched part of her reality TV programme and while her political opinions were um, blinkered to put it mildly, actually the transgender women that were with her were really vocal about pointing that out, they really weren't pulling any punches.

It was interesting enough that I've got the next episode set to record, I was pleasantly surprised tbh, I expected it to be much more of a fluff programme, but actually because of the other women it wasn't.
