Raven-Symone, 29, thinks Caitlyn Jenner, 65, is moving too fast

Raven Symone joined The View as a regular co-host last year.

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.’
