10,000 Transphobic Dipshits Petition To Have Caitlyn Jenner’s Olympic Medals Revoked

Oh for fuck’s sake. A petition to strip Caitlyn Jenner of her Olympic medals, which launched¬†yesterday as yet another idiotic 4chan troll, has now garnered over 10,000 signatures. Why? Because people are assholes, and a lot of them didn’t get the love and attention they needed as children. These assholes write:

Dear International Olympic Committee,

It has recently come to light that gold medalist Bruce Jenner is in fact transgender, and therefore, identifies as a woman. We congratulate Ms. Jenner on these new developments and wish her the best. However, this creates somewhat of a problem as Ms. Jenner (as talented as she is) claims that she has always believed herself to be truly female, and therefore, was in violation of committee rules regarding women competing in men’s sports and vice versa. Therefore, it is with a heavy heart that we must ask whether or not it is proper that Ms. Jenner should retain her olympic records in light of this, as we must now either claim that Bruce Jenner and Caitlyn Jenner are two entirely different people (which we know is not true), or that Bruce Jenner was, in fact, a woman participating in a men’s event. It is only fair to all involved that women receive their credit as champions of the Decathalon and that the men racing Ms. Jenner are not expected to compete with a superior, streamlined being such as herself.

We urge Ms. Jenner to support the transgender community by giving up the medals earned by competing against the wrong gender.

Thank you, and congratulations to Ms. Jenner for her courage!

Though most media discussion of the petition has been negative, naturally, there was an article on the Daily Caller in full support of this idiocy. There is, of course, not a chance in hell that this is actually going to happen. It’s a moot point. This is merely a way for grumpy, transphobic idiots to shake their sad little fists at the sky and continue to accomplish nothing other than making themselves look stupid.

So, I don’t know–congratulations on getting “attention.” I’m sorry your parents didn’t give you enough of it.
