I decided to watch I Am Cait because I just finished reading Jennifer Boylan's wonderful memoir, She's Not There, which details her journey to self acceptance and her transition from male to female. Boylan went on a road trip with Caitlyn Jenner this fall for Caitlyn's reality show, so I decided to watch episode 2 (The Road trip part 1), which features 5-6 trans women traveling from LA to the headquarters of Human Rights Campaign in San Francisco. The entire point of this episode is to expose Caitlyn to other trans women who are not living in a privileged socio-economic bubble and to educate her about the important issues facing the trans community. Boylan and the other trans women in this episode make a series of considerate, well informed observations about the ways that Caitlyn might be able to make a real difference for the trans community. This is not fluffy or mindless entertainment, and I plan to watch episode 3, The Road Trip part 2, to continue my own education.
