Caitlyn Jenner Says Joe Rogan's Joke About Her Transition Is Transphobic | 22 Words

Caitlyn Jenner has slammed podcast host Joe Rogan as "transphobic" after he made a cruel joke about her transition recently...

Caitlyn Jenner has had enough.

The trans activist has hit out at Joe Rogan following a "transphobic" joke he made about her recently... and she isn't happy.

Now, Caitlyn Jenner was born in 1949, in Mount Kisco, New York.

Growing up, she had dyslexia and struggled in school but it became instantly clear that she had a talent for sports and excelled in the likes of water skiing, football, basketball and track, to name a few.

Picking up on her talent, her college track coach encouraged her to train for the Olympic decathlon...

In 1972, Jenner placed third in the Olympic trials and tenth at the Munich Games.

She went on to become one of the most beloved athletes of the '70s.

The gold medal-winning track star set a world record in the decathlon at the 1976 Summer Olympics in Montreal, scoring a staggering 8,634 points.

Following her Olympic success, she has remained well and truly in the spotlight.

This was maintained through a number of TV appearances and endorsements, Jenner remained in the public eye. From the late '70s to the early '00s, she worked on several tv series and appeared in a handful of TV movies.

But there's another thing Caitlyn is very well known for...

And that's Keeping Up With The Kardashians, of course!

Caitlyn became a huge part Keeping up with the Kardashian's.

She came into Kris' life after the death of her first husband, Robert Kardashian. She had 2 children with Kris (Kendall, and Kylie) and was hastily blended as a significant role model to all the Kardashian sisters.

Of course, we all know about the famous Caitlyn Jenner transformation.

Jenner initially announced she would be beginning her transition back in 2015 - even launched her own reality show titled I Am Cait, chronicling her journey throughout her transition.

2 years later, in true Kardashian-Jenner fashion, she went public on the cover of Vanity Fair.

She underwent her final operation - the gender-reassignment surgery - in 2017.

And she couldn't be happier.

In her debut Vanity Fair interview as Caitlyn, she explained how liberating it felt to finally be open as a woman: "I have nothing left to hide. I am kind of a free person, a free soul. Up to this point, I would wear, you know, Bruce would wear sweatshirts with hoods on them so paparazzi can’t get pictures and all that kind of crap."

Caitlyn insists that she is a nicer person than ever now she has transitioned.

When asked about sending a full airplane out just to pick up her Mom, Caitlyn explained: "I know. What I told her: 'Isn’t Caitlyn a much better friend?' Bruce, he would never send a plane. No, no, no, what a jerk the guy was, O.K., Caitlyn is like, 'Send the plane. Mom, we’re sending a plane, we’re going to go pick you up and bring you down here.'... It seems like she has a lot more friends than he ever had."

Yet, despite Caitlyn being happier and more popular than ever...

Her transition understandably took its toll on her daughters, Kendall and Kylie. "My dad says it herself sometimes, it's kind of like mourning the loss of someone, because it is," Kendall said in a candid interview about Caitlyn's transition. "My dad is my dad, but he’s not there physically anymore. But she lets me call her dad -- that's the last little piece of dad I've got."

Though Kendall insists that she'd known about Caitlyn's gender identity for years.

"It's an adjustment. It's something you have to get used to. But I've known since I was a kid," Kendall revealed in the same interview. "He never confirmed it to me, but I’ve known for a very long time. It's the same person."

There has been a noticeable strain in Caitlyn's relationship with her daughters.

And Kendall has remained loyal to her mom, Kris, during her parents' feud. "Kendall is loyal to Kris[Jenner] and has very little to do with her dad. The more time that has passed, the more she feels Caitlyn has let her down with the things she has said and with her actions," a source shared with E! News back in 2017.

However, it's been a few years since her transition now...

And even though they have been through some pretty rough patches, the family seems to have worked things out.

She prides herself on using her celebrity status to spread a positive message of tolerance.

“If there is one thing I do know about my life, it is the power of the spotlight," Jenner said. “Sometimes it gets overwhelming, but with attention comes responsibility," she explained during her EPSY awards speech, in which she received the Arthur Ashe Award for Courage.

She continued:

"As a group, as athletes, how you conduct your lives, what you say, what you do, is absorbed and observed by millions of people, especially young people. I know I’m clear with my responsibility going forward, to tell my story the right way — for me, to keep learning, to do whatever I can to reshape the landscape of how trans issues are viewed, how trans people are treated. And then more broadly to promote a very simple idea: accepting people for who they are. Accepting people’s differences."

She is passionate about paving the way for trans kids.

"If you want to call me names, make jokes, doubt my intentions, go ahead because the reality is, I can take it. But for the thousands of kids out there coming to terms with being true to who they are, they shouldn’t have to take it."

Even though Caitlyn's attitude is empowering...

Jokes are still sadly made about her, and Joe Rogan is the most recent culprit to poke cruel fun at Caitlyn.

Joe's podcast last week, which featured Tim Kennedy, discussed Caitlyn and her family.

Joe broke down his joke-writing process to Tim about the Caitlyn bit that he used in his Netflix special, Triggered, explaining in his eyes some people are born trapped in the wrong gender, while and others become that due to their environment.

He joked Caitlyn might be the latter by using the "he" pronoun and referring to her as Bruce.

He also referred to the Kardashians as "crazy b******" who were probably the ones who drove Caitlyn crazy.

Even though Joe and his buddies had a good old laugh from his joke...

Caitlyn wasn't at all impressed and she has spoken exclusively to TMZ to voice her opinions over his "transphobic" joke.

Caitlyn didn't hold back...

"This is not the first time he's said something like this, he's a homophobic, transphobic ass. And he calls my family - especially the girls - crazy b******, and he does this all the time," she started by saying.

She went on:

"Let's get real here. My daughters have obviously done extremely well, they're more famous and they have more money than he has... he's gotten his fame by putting other people down and making jokes about it. My family has done it through hard work, they're smart businesswomen, they're intelligent... they didn't do it by making jokes about other people and putting them down."

And about whether her transition was to do with her family being crazy?

"I've been gender dysphoric my entire life, once I got to the point in my life when my kids were raised and they were all doing well, maybe I could live the remainder of my life authentically. And it has been the most wonderful experience - I wake up in the morning every day and I'm so happy because I can just be myself all day!"

Amen, Caitlyn!
