It's a tough old world out there for conservatives.

Or at least it is for Caitlyn Jenner who says she gets way more 'flak' for being a Republican than she does for being transgender.

Speaking at the University of Pennsylvania, Jenner gave this response when asked why she wasn't a Democrat – given the party's support for transgender rights,

“I have gotten more flak for being a conservative Republican than I have for being trans.”

While I'm tempted to get out my tiny violin and start playing, it is worth noting that (as Buzz Bissinger pointed out), a person's core beliefs don't change just because their gender does.

One thing the reality star has softened on however is her approval of same-sex marriage. When challenged on her believes during an interview with Ellen Degeneres back in September she said,

"At first I was not for it... but as time has gone, I think, like a lot of people on this issue, have really changed their thinking here to, 'I don't ever want to stand in front of anybody's happiness,' you know? That's not my job."

Do you find Caitlyn's Republican support confusing?
