    Seeing how the party seems hostile/ignorant of issues affecting the LGBT community,why would she support the Republican party ?
    Can someone like here really be seen as a spokesperson for the LGBT community ?

    Have you considered that she might not want to be a spokesperson for the community?

    She is an idiot. I really cannot comprehend how anyone can support a party that is actively against who you are as a person.

    Yes but due to the fact when she transitioned,she got a cover photo,a tv reality show,and alot more people began to take notice of issues affecting the transgender community,doesnt that sort of makes her a de facto spokeswoman ?

    Not necessarily. It means people want her to be a spokesperson, mainly because she's very much in the public eye. She'd be a good person (disregarding potentially her political views and the fact she killed someone) to campaign for transgender rights because of being a public figure, but she may not want this role forced upon her.

    I cant rep you again .I dont get it either .It seems to me like she betrayed the transgender community in a way.I feel her wealth has cushioned her from the realities of most transgender people.

    It shocking she supports the a party who policies means alot of transgender people are unable to get reassignment surgeries.Its like George Orwell animal farm with pigs betraying their animal comrades.

    But then of course,she is a Kardashian.Perhaps we were expecting too much of her ?

    She is incredibly ignorant. Her wealth has clearly caused her to become sheltered from real world problems and clearly is a Republican because she wants to keep her wealth; she doesn't care about LGBT issues since she is privileged herself, she is praised while her other LGBT counterparts still struggle irl. Like you said, I don't think we should expect much from her, but surely she should know even the very basics?

    The republicans aren't a single issue party, no matter how much media in both the US and the UK make it appear so. Just because one facet of the party may disagree with something you think, doesn't mean it negates the rest of your beliefs.

    The knee-jerk reaction from people here who don't understand that and so choose to abuse people is shocking and juvenile.

    Perhaps, but I'd have thought her sexual identity was a pretty important issue to her. But then again, she made anti-gay marriage remarks recently, so it's not entirely surprising she's a Republican; it's just a bit strange given their often bigoted conservatism that you'd have thought goes against everything a transgender stands for.

    Perhaps their view (reaching here, I admit) is that she's 'one of the good ones'?

    She might be LGBT but that doesn't mean she's not greedy and rich like the rest of the republicans.

    Because it's more important to choose the party that protects your financial interests as opposed to your personal beliefs

    That's an assumption on your part.

    Who are we to decide what she should value most from the political parties?

    She's smart enough to know that identity politics is for stupid people, maybe?
