I Am Cait Prematurely Cancelled

According to E! the show was cancelled because of disappointing rating on the second season but this was a terrible decision to shutdown a program that shed such light globally for our transgender community. For two fabulous years I Am Cait brought experts from the trans community to address the long overdue subject of gender & sexuality. Whether you cared about Caitlyn Jenner or not wasn’t the focus. It was listening to weekly discussions by the cast of transgender experts like Jenny Boylan, Chandi Moore, Kate Bornstein, Candis Cayne & the rest of the supporting cast really highlighting our LGBT community’s issues. Ratings aren’t everything & can be totally misleading. Of course the second season wasn’t going to get the same ratings as the first after Jenner shocked the world by coming out as transgender. The premiere of the show debuted to a respectable 2.7 million viewers but it declined significantly from there. The second season premiere debuted to just 750,000 viewers. Unfortunately Jenner’s conservative republican position also alienated many of our LGBT community from supporting the show but maybe another season would have turned that around as well. Perhaps it was all just too much for Caitlyn Jenner’s evolvement. But fear none, her superficial side will remain with appearances on Keeping Up with the Kardashians.
