When asked by the reporter if it “delegitimized the identity of trans girls,” she interrupted the conversation and replied, “Have a nice day.”
It’s because multiple states, most recently Florida, are banning transgender girls and women from playing on public sports teams.
Jenner, 71, who is transgender, is a registered Republican and voted for Trump in 2016, but not 2020, in protest at his stance on transgender issues.
But her surprising opposition to trans girls competing in girls’ sports will anger some members of the LGBTQ + community who have said they will not support her “vanity campaign” for the governor.

The confirmation of her run immediately sparked a backlash from the American public, celebrities, and even the LGBTQ + community.
A lot of people took to social media to say it’s a ‘hard pass’ that they would vote for her as the phrase ‘HELL NO’ started trending.
Star Trek actor George Takei, who is gay, took to Twitter to “ make it clear ” that he will not vote for Jenner and compare her position in the LGBTQ community to Candace Owens in the black community and Republican Rep. Madison Cawthorn in the Disabled Community.
Black people wouldn’t vote for Candace Owen. The disabled community wouldn’t vote for Madison Cawthorn, ”he tweeted.
