I’m sure Caitlyn Jenner‘s transition has been a difficult thing for her family, especially since it’s all been taking place so publicly. And while most of the Jenner/Kardashian clan has tried their hardest not to act like assholes throughout this experience, it seems some true feelings (or just plain carelessness) has seeped through. Kendall Jenner was talking to a reporter for E! this past week about Caitlyn’s upcoming docuseries, I Am Cait, but… kept referring to Caitlyn with male pronouns. Uh, yikes.
Asked what she thinks about the series, Kendall said, “I think that he can honestly do so much good with everything and I’m excited for it. If he’s excited, I’m excited for him.”
Huh. I understand that sometimes you might accidentally slip up and revert to the old pronouns, but to do it so consistently as if nothing has changed seems pretty disrespectful and ridiculous. Caitlyn is a woman, and while the girls know her as their dad, that doesn’t change that a woman goes by “she” pronouns. I don’t think that Kendall did this out of malice or anything (I frankly don’t think she seems smart enough to think of it as rebellious act), but I do think it was careless and a bit disappointing to hear.
