Caitlyn Jenner has been getting widespread praise for making her new docu-series I Am Cait about educating the world about transgender issues.
Raven-Symone seems to have a problem with that.
‘When I came out, I didn’t go and go hardcore and be like, “I’m going to save the world for LGBT,”‘ The View co-host said on Monday’s episode of the talk show.
‘You’ve got to learn it. You’ve got to learn it first, and she’s not, really.’
The former Bruce Jenner re-introduced herself as Caitlyn on the cover of Vanity Fair on 1 June, two months after confirming she is transgender in an interview with Diane Sawyer.
Symone, 29, came out in 2013 and is in a relationship with a woman but does not identify herself as lesbian or bisexual. Instead, she prefers to be known as a human who loves humans.
‘Beforehand, I was definitely repping the community, even when I wasn’t saying this is what I was. And I’m not faulting you because yes, we need you. It’s too fast, too soon.’
Symone says she herself is not a gay rights activist: ‘I can’t be. I learned from the real gay rights activists. I can only do what I can.’
