After the Bruce Jenner interview on ABC, in which Jenner came out as transgender and Republican, the conservative National Review Online aggregated a few tweets about mean, mean liberals expressing intolerance of Jenner’s conservatism.
Today, while working on something else, I looked for the hateful, deceptive article about Laverne Cox that Kevin D. Williamson posted on NRO last summer, and which I wrote a post about here.
It’s gone. Apparently Jenner’s coming-out and self-labeling as Republican was all the National Review needed to evolve on the issue of transgender acceptance.
That’s my guess, anyway, and I’m open to other interpretations. Do any of you out there think this means something else?
