Transgender Jenner may run for senate

The former gold medalist who calls himself a woman, Caitlyn (aka Bruce) Jenner is no longer jumping hurdles, throwing javelins and flipping over crossbars, but he's now jumping into the political area. 

Jenner has revealed to radio host John Catsimatidis that he has considered launching a run for Senate because there's just so much money a guy can make as a once-famous male Olympian turned transgendered. He is in the process of determining his future in politics and activism.

"I have considered it. I like the political side of it," Jenner, a Republican, said.

"The political side of it has always been very intriguing to me. Over the next six months or so, I gotta find out where I can do a better job. Can I do a better job from the outside? Kind of working the perimeter of the political scene, being open to talking to anybody? Or are you better from the inside, and we are in the process of determining that," he said, referring to himself in the plural.

"Yeah, but I would look for a senatorial run," he continued. 

Mr. Jenner has been a Trump supporter but opposed him over his decision to roll back Obama-era protections for transgender students, which make up a whopping zero point three percent of the US population according to a poll by the Williams Institute. 

They came to that result by averaging the numbers obtained in two studies, one in Massachusetts and one in California. The Massachusetts study found that 0.5 percent of the population was transgender and the California study found that just 0.1 percent of the population was transgender.

"I have a message for President Trump from, well, one Republican to another. This is a disaster. And you can fix it. You made a promise to protect the LGBTQ community. Call me," Jenner said.

Transgender individuals have a suicide rate of about 40 percent. That should tell us that it is a mental dysfunction that should absolutely have our sympathy, but not our validating that people born of one gender can change to the other.
