For those that do not know, Caitlyn was Bruce Jenner before beginning her transition.
The fact that so many see Caitlyn Jenner as just another Kardashian & not the elite American athlete is just so telling. Read history, folks

And for those that do not know who this person was before the Kardashians let me tell you. Jenner was a college football player, before her big break into international attention as a decathlete, winning the gold medal in the men’s decathlon event at the 1976 Summer Olympics in Montreal, and setting a world record which wasn’t displaced until 1980.
It was in April that Jenner officially announced her status as a woman in a special with Diane Sawyer. Reactions to her transition have been mixed, with many people voicing their confusion about Caitlyn.

Caitlyn also broke the record for fastest amount of followers gained, beating Barack Obama’s previously set record.
Another Jenner world record, and at 65? Who’da thought! Humbled & honored to have reached 1M followers in 4 hrs. Thank you for your support.
