Caitlyn Jenner Shuts Down Piers Morgan: Don’t Ask About My Body, You Creep!

Piers Morgan isn't exactly known for his tasteful questions, and he's once again demonstrating that.

This time, he asks Caitlyn Jenner about how her "physique" has changed since her youth.

As you can see in the video below, Caitlyn shut him down right away, explaining that his question isn't just inappropriate — for many trans women, it's dangerous.

Caitlyn Jenner has been dragged by many in the trans community for not, they believe, doing a good job of representing the community.

(Remember the trans woman who called Caitlyn Jenner a fraud? That woman is now running for office)

But … it looks like things might be getting a little better.

See, Piers Morgan — through innuendo — asks prying questions about Caitlyn's body, now versus in her past.

And Cait shuts him down pretty epically, even talking about how ignorant questions like Piers' can make life itself dangerous for trans women.

So, Piers Morgan holds up an old plastic action figure of Caitlyn Jenner from her Olympian days, long before her transition.

(Total side note, but have you ever seen the episode of Murder, She Wrote that Cait was on? Seeing her deadname on the credits a couple of years ago, back when the series was on Netflix, was such a surprise for me)

Piers made the unfortunate choice to gesture to the action figure, and talk about her "physique," asking how it differs now versus then, saying:

"Obviously, certain areas we know."

Yikes. Cait doesn't let that go by unchallenged, saying:

"See you made a comment there and that's why you would get in trouble."

"You just said, 'Oh certain areas.' That, to a trans person, is disrespectful."

For the record, asking anybody about their private parts in an interview is usually disrespectful unless that person has already indicated that they're fine talking about it.

Cait explains: "Because you don't make a joke about that."

"Because it's not funny, it's life."

She goes on to say:

"And it’s a part of my life and it's a very serious part of my life."

Piers inquires why life can't be a joke, or whatever. We guess that maybe he thought that he'd get away with his creepy questions?

Caitlyn is not amused, saying: "I don't take it and I take that very seriously."

She even ties the issue to other trans folks.

"And so, out of respect to myself and the community, it's not something that you joke about."

Cait talks more about how this impacts trans women, and not just herself:

"It's something, as I said before, this is serious stuff. People die over this issue. It's not a joke."

It's worth noting that Piers Morgan is hardly the first person to ask wildly inappropriate questions of a trans woman he's interviewing.

But it's 2018. This should not still be happening.

Back in 2014, Katie Couric interviewed Laverne Cox and Carmen Carrera, And during that interview, Couric asked some very inappropriate genital questions without realizing that she was doing anything wrong.

Janet Mock did a famous takedown of that behavior — if you're not going to ask a cis celebrity about their genitals, then don't ask a trans celebrity about theirs.

Katie Couric, for the record, apologized and later did a series about trans folks, and stated explicitly that part of what inspired her to do the series was her past mistakes.

Caitlyn jenner strikes a pose

Caitlyn Jenner is right — transphobic questions can be life-for-death for trans folks who aren't millionaire celebrities.

For the record, though, what Piers was saying would be rude and creepy to anyone.

Would he, while interviewing Martha Stewart, ask questions about her breasts or genitals? Would he ask any 68-year-old woman about her "physique" in contrast to when she was a young athlete? We hope not.

Anyway, while nobody's private areas are any business of ours, this is additionally true for trans people. It might become appropriate to ask if you're dating a trans woman, but that's about it.

Derick Dillard: My Kids Don’t Need Picture Books, They Need Jesus!

As we all know, Derick Dillard considers allowing trans kids to be themselves is “child abuse.” But have you wondered what he thinks good parenting looks like?

Apparently, he thinks that it looks like two incredibly bored children.

At least, Derick decided to read to his two very young sons the story of Jesus’ birth, directly from the Bible. No photos. And fans were quick to comment with their very strong opinions.

Derick Dillard captioned his photoset:

“Christmas Eve, reading the Christmas story with my boys. Doesn’t get much better than that! Thank you Jesus!”

For some families, that’s a tradition. For others it isn’t.

Though fans were divided, let’s start with the priase that he earned.

“Beautiful family. God bless you all!”

That’s sweet.

“You are such a great dad, Derick! Merry Christmas to you and your beautiful family.”

We don’t know that a “great dad” would go on social media and repeatedly slam a teenage girl because he disagrees with her identity, but … well, he’s been fired for that.

“I’m not really a religious person. most normal everyday average people I know DO read the Christmas story out of the Bible on Christmas to their children and some not even really religious people do also.”

Interestingly, I’d personally never heard of that tradition, but I believe that plenty of folks do it.

“There is nothing abnormal,” that commenter continued. “About this and how they read the Christmas story Christmas Eve.”

That same commenter continued:

“I am sure the Duggars have children’s books as well but to come to someone’s page and tell them how to raise their children — takes much gall. Wow”

Another saw criticism of Derick and lashed out:

“Remember, you’re commenting with very sick, wicked souls! These people hate God, His Son Jesus Christ and God’s word. They’re just here to tear down anything Christian!”

That is the sort of paranoia that you see sometimes. If you believe that a critique of one man is an attack against an entire faith, you … probably need to relax.

Another affirmed that they thought that reading directly from the Bible is what they prefer:

“Some of us believe that straight from the Bible is best. Not watered down versions of the Christmas story. Some children’s bible books are excellent don’t get me wrong, however reading straight from Gods word every Christmas is an amazing tradition.”

Others chimed in, suggesting that reading directly from the Bible isn’t ideal with young children, especially when one of the listeners is a literal baby.

“Kids like kid’s books, not old fashioned text. fine if you want to read them the nativity story but at least do it in a format that they understand. kids like pictures.”

Children do enjoy picture books. Especially when they’re still learning words. (Again, Samuel is a literal baby)

“The whole situation is very creepy.”

That comment, we imagine, has less to do with the reading and more to do with Derick using it as a photo op.

“I bet these kids would appreciate having a dad who cares enough about them to get off his lazy butt and get a.job so he can support them as opposed to grifting clueless fans to support them.”

That, of course, is a jab at how Derick Dillard begs fans for cash. Especially now that he’s lost his spot on Counting On.

Another commenter chimed in:

“They aren’t in harm way they grift in Arkansas”

Others took issue with Derick Dillard’s parenting.

“Aww! It looked like Izzy was going to hug little Sam before his daddy pulled him away to make him listen to something he can’t fully understand yet.”

Israel and Samuel were clearly more interested in each other (awww!) than in listening to their father read.

“Why aren’t you acknowledging little Sam? Your arm isn’t even around him. At least Izzy and Jill love that sweet baby.”

Derick seemed invested in his little photo op.

“There are so many wonderful children’s books targeted to their ages, which would include pictures and be ever so much more appropriate for these two.”

If you’re going to do an activity with your children, it should be tailored to your children.

To their interests and their capabilities.

Even a baby as young as Samuel can look at a picture book, and maybe understand a few more words in the process.

Still, it seems like a harmless tradition, and some people — on both sides — got super worked up about it.

Maybe it’s because Derick Dillard himself is such a divisive figure? In which case, we’d question why he doesn’t lay low on social media for a while.

But then we remember that he likes to beg for money and then use those donated funds to go out to dinner.

Khloe Kardashian Pregnant: What Don’t We Know?!?

It has finally been confirmed by the woman herself:

Khloe Kardashian is pregnant.

Now that the reality star has come out and revealed the terribly-kept secret to the world, we can get down to baby business.

What do we know about Khloe's impending bundle of joy? What questions still need to be answered?

Come with us below as we take a closer look…

1. How did Khloe tell the world?

Not on television or on the cover of a magazine. But via this Instagram photo and a lengthy caption that reads in part: “My greatest dream realized! We are having a baby! I had been waiting and wondering but God had a plan all along. He knew what He was doing. I simply had to trust in Him and be patient. I still at times can’t believe that our love created life!”

2. Wait, so she didn’t make money off the announcement?

Please. Kris Jenner raised Khloe well. Did you not notice the huge Calvin Klein logo on Khloe’s waistband? You can bet she banked a healthy six figures, at minimum, for the inclusion of this brand.

3. Who is the baby daddy?

What? Really?!? It’s Tristan Thompson, the Cleveland Cavaliers star who has been dating Khloe since the middle of 2016. They’re smitten.

4. Are they getting married?

There are no signs that point to yes. Various sources have said the possibility remains, but Khloe and Tristan are not really talking marriage. They plan on being together forever, but don’t need to put a ring on it any time soon. Perhaps Khloe still feels burned by her Lamar Odom divorce.

5. Will it be a girl?

We don’t know. Maybe.

6. Will it be a boy?
