If you ever found yourself within scowling distance of Caitlyn Jenner, what would you say? What would you scream? What the hell would you be wearing?
Fate presented this quandary to trans activist Ashlee Marie Preston, Wear Your Voice‘s Editor-in-Chief, who decided to confront Jenner at a Trans Chorus performance in Los Angeles last weekend.

“You are directly responsible for what has happened with transgender soldiers and the military,” Preston says. “I am not afraid to say it to you, I am not. I am not afraid.”
Preston also gets angry at the co-chair for the event, Dena Williams, for accepting Jenner’s money: “You are complicit! Taking her money makes you complicit. It goes against the mission, Dena!”
When Jenner attempts to respond to Preston with “You don’t know me,” Preston replies, “Yes I do! It’s ridiculous. You’re a f**king fraud and a fake.”
In case you’re splishy-splashing through waves of ambiguity following Preston’s speech, she prefaces the clip with: “Caitlyn Jenner, you’re trash.”
Here is that particularly teachable moment for you.
I’m sorry but I will not be cosigning on this “activism” because activism, it was. She got up in Caitlyn Jenner’s face, and made an event that was not about Caitlyn all about her, and was doing it for the cameras to boot. Regardless of how you feel about Miss Thang Jenner, Ashlee Peterson was all the way wrong for the way she went about doing this, and it was clear it was a ploy to go viral. And then to get in the organizer’s face for taking a donation for trans issues.
This is how the right wins!! You keep making these idiots seem sympathetic because of the unrelenting vitriol and virtue signaling, when truthfully, half of America wants the same things we want: equality, fairness, and opportunity for everyone. Caitlyn ain’t my favorite person by a long shot, but I can’t in good conscious say this was a good thing for anyone. It helped no one and solved nothing.
“You’re fraudulent and a fake!!”
“Call me Caitlyn.”

Do you realise your tonepolicing of that brave womyn reeks of transmisogynoir cisprivilege and is deeply problematic
Do you realize that I don’t give a shit and won’t police my tone because of muh microaggression?? God, I felt like a Tumbr thesaurus threw up all over your comment

Oh god you are an literal NAZI shame on you!!!!!!
I’m a black nazi??? I did nazi see that one coming lol
And I disagree with you 100%. Never mind the venue. I’m sure you would have still found a way to speak out against Ashlee whether she spoke to Caitlyn that way on the street, at dinner, in her home, park or on the F’n sidewalk. Fact is Ashlee spoke her mind and stood up for what she and many of us believe in which is that Caitlyn is a fraud (because she is) and we don’t need to support her at all. We don’t need her money either. The problem is that too many of you can be bought. Stop allowing yourselves to be bought. Caitlyn has done irreversible damage with the things that she has said about LGBTQ. I see nothing wrong with Ashlee recording the incident. These are the times of social media unless you’re old or living under a rock. We use social media to get information out to the masses….to let people know what’s going on….to speak our truth…..to open eyes….to wake people up…..not to ignore and hide things.
I do not care for Caitlyn’s political views. Nor many of her social views for that matter. That said it is unfair to call her “a f**king fraud and a fake”. She is not a fake nor a fraud. She is simply a transgendered person who holds opinions I find reprehensible.
No, she is a transperson who supports people who want to directly harm transpeople.
She is a fraud and she is a fake. She only cares now because of all of the backlash she received from the things she has said and the people she supports. Then she found out that she actually needs the LGBTQ community because the support on the right is damn near nonexistent. Nobody wants to be alone. She is not one of the girls though. It’s so obvious
The alt-left are very tolerant people…….as long as they agree with your views. If you stray off the plantation however, they want to cut your balls off and then happily watch you bleed to death.
The left believes we’re all entitled to their opinion.
Sounds like you’re watching too many Saw movies… and forget that people have the Constitutionally-guaranteed right to disagree with one another.
People have differing opinions, that’s just a fact of life. Some jerks are intolerant of that fact and we can’t change that.
But please don’t impugn a whole group of people based on the actions of a few. It cuts both ways and prevents us from having any sort of constructive dialogue about, well, anything!
Know how you can spot a fake troll who isn’t lgbt but is only on here to attack lgbt people?
They use terms like “Alt-Left” that are only used on widespread anti-lgbt, anti-minority hate blogs.
Thanks for making it so obvious to spot you.
Sounds like a typical leftist with Trump Derangement Syndrome.
By that tortured logic, since David Duke supports Trump, then all “typical” Trump supporters are KKK sympathizers.
I don’t believe that to be the case, so kindly stop making generalizations about “typical leftists” based on the actions of a single person.
Oh look, the 3rd of Mo Bros screenames is here.
Remember, according to Republicans. Them supporting bills in Uganda that call for the murder of lgbts, or them having as part of their platform the removal of rights from lgbts, AND them pushing to remove laws that protect people from being assaulted and bullied in school is ok.
But disagreeing with them is an attack!
In other words, the Republicans are like a rapist, crying that his intended victim was intolerant because she ran away.
That’s supposed to be activism? Jenner is very wrong on many levels, but this is way out of the line, way aggressive and ugly. That woman just wanted to go viral. Congrats, darling, you have.
I’ll co-sign with that!!!
So somebody who went around the country supporting politicians who stated that directly harming transpeople was their objective doesn’t warrant the people they are advocating harm to to respond.
Again, this is like your saying that somebody advocated rape, but that a rape victim yelling at them was WAAAAAAY out of line.
Caitlyn Jenner is a fake and a fraud in the sense that the entire Kardashian/Jenner family is. They love the spotlight because they have made their fortunes off it so I don’t feel sorry for her.
That’s all it was about until Caitlyn got dragged on social media and by the media. She did not care about LGBTQ rights until she got dragged. Then the spotlight wasn’t a good thing anymore, so she switched lanes.
It’s hilarious that a fake woman calls another fake woman “fake”.
Thanks. I didn’t want to say anything but I sure as hell thought the same thing. This is a 2017 classic case of Rich Queen, Poor Queen. lol I wonder why ol’ Malloy and company (surely you guys remember when they decided to jump all over Rupaul when Jenner was making his debut onto the scene a few years ago) haven’t said anything about her (Jenner’s) antics and political views?.
I don’t like Jenner for a long list of things including vehicular homicide, but she has the right to her political opinions without an insane, aggressive nut getting up in her face. It hurts the trans community more than it helps to have a representative like Ashlee involved. Jenner is no poster child but she’s trying to keep it classy which is more than the Kardashians can manage.
I love the false equivalency that people keep trying to use.
She supports people who have stated they have the goal of directly causing harm to trans people.
This is a “Political Opinion” the same way somebody who advocated for rape and child abuse have a “Political Opinion”.
You’re really going off the deep end. You complain about false equivalencies but then you go on to compare having a political opinion to advocating for rape and hurting children. You’re crazy
No one is advocating for rape or child abuse, where are you getting these notions?
I haven’t watched the video so pardon me on that (queerty videos don’t play on my tablet sometimes). I wouldn’t have the nerve to do what Preston did but feel every word said. Of all the transgender people I have read about and “know” for about 5 decades now, I think Jenner is confused or something. And I even knew a transgender woman I believe just got a vagina to get straight guys (Michelle) and was prob a sex addict. Like a drag queen who only liked straight men so needed the parts. But Jenner seemed to put the clothes, makeup, Adams apple, boobs, all before being a real woman and having views protecting her community. And in that respect, she is a fake and a fraud. It all boils down to pleasing their parents and religion. I don’t have all the answers but I am seeing this more. I think that was Whitney Houston’s problem. Not a transgender person but thought she would not be loved or tolerated by her mother and other family members. So they fight it all their lives. Jenner thinks she can be transgender and keep all the same values she had before. Remember when she was on Ellen and was against gay marriage! Now that is confused. She’s a lesbian now! She loves women. Isn’t even bi.
