Keeping Up With…

Bruce Jenner.

Keeping up. Keeping up with the Kardashians.

Bruce Jenner. Bruce Jenner. Bruce Jenner. Bruce Jenner.

Caitlyn Jenner.

Caitlyn Jenner. Caitlyn Jenner. Caitlyn Jenner. Caitlyn Jenner. Caitlyn Jenner. Caitlyn Jenner. Caitlyn Jenner. Caitlyn Jenner. Caitlyn Jenner. Caitlyn Jenner. Caitlyn Jenner. Caitlyn Jenner. Caitlyn Jenner. Caitlyn Jenner. Caitlyn Jenner. Caitlyn Jenner.

Caitlyn Jenner. Caitlyn Jenner. Caitlyn Jenner. Caitlyn Jenner. Caitlyn Jenner. Caitlyn Jenner. Caitlyn Jenner. Caitlyn Jenner.

She tried to get ideas by watching the Miss America pageant, trying out the names of some of the contestants. She liked Heather or Cathy, but Caitlyn stuck in her mind.”

“Bruce Jenner’s children love Caitlyn: She’s a better person than Bruce. “

Nearly 17 million viewers watched Jenner’s interview with Diane Sawyer in which the Olympian said she has the soul of a woman.

“It takes courage to share your story,” Barack Obama Tweeted his support for Caitlyn.

Bradley Manning.

Who?

Chelsea Manning.

Who?

Who is Chelsea Manning? How many U.S. citizens know that Chelsea Manning, formerly Bradley Manning, is a whistleblower? How many U.S. citizens know that Chelsea Manning is serving a 35-year sentence in a maximum-security prison?

Before Manning was tried, Obama pronounced his own judgment: “He broke the law.” No Tweet that “it takes courage to share your story.” Because Manning’s story was and is about Iraq and Afghanistan war crimes—war crimes committed in your name and in mine.
