Good for you, Caitlyn Jenner! The ‘I Am Cait’ star and LGBTQ activist responded on Oct. 13 to North Carolina governor Pat McCrory’s repulsive comments about her, and took it to the next level by making him a meme. Check out her photo and message to the transphobic governor right here!
North Carolina governor Pat McCrory, 59, ordered Caitlyn Jenner, 66, to use the men’s bathroom in public if she ever visits North Carolina, and the advocate for transgender rights did not take that sitting down. “So I’m supposed to use the same shower as this guy?? Gross!” she wrote on Instagram, sharing a photo of McCrory laughing goofily with his fist in his mouth. How amazing is that response?!

In case you missed it, on Oct. 12 at the state’s gubernatorial debate, McCrory infuriated people by saying Jenner should be relegated to the men’s room anytime she’s in North Carolina. He said that she should feel free to do whatever she pleases in the “private sector” of the state, but if she’s planning to shower in a public place like the University of North Carolina at Chapel Hill, then “she’s going to use the men’s shower”. Just awful.
On the other hand, McCrory’s Democratic opponent Roy Cooper answered the same question by saying that the state shouldn’t make decisions like this; rather, it should be up to local governments. However, no one was really paying attention to him, because McCrory was too busy saying stuff like, “If you’re a man, you’re going to go to the man’s locker room, restroom or shower. If you’re a woman, you’re going to go to their appropriate shower. No change whatsoever.”
