Carmen Carrera thinks Caitlyn Jenner still has more to learn about the trans experience.
Speaking with TMZ, Carrera says she “is not surprised” that”I Am Cait” ratings are down and the show could face possible cancellation. She thinks Jenner’s disconnect with the trans community is a reason why.
“I think that she put herself in a tough situation because she hadn’t really experienced much of the trans lifestyle, but she wanted to be on the forefront. So I think it’s difficult,” Carrera told TMZ.
“You have to learn about this community and you have to really understand our views and what we have actually been through, because I don’t think she’s really experienced, aside from living a closeted life, I don’t think she’s experienced the adversity that we have faced, that I still face on a day-to-day basis,” the “RuPaul’s Drag Race” alum says.
“Once she experiences that first-hand, which I doubt she ever will, because she lives in a beautiful castle, I think then she might change some of her political views, and some of her conservative views,” Carrera concluded.
