Caitlyn Jenner Is Acting Like A Diva -- What's It To You?

The Kardashians are undoubtedly the biggest and baddest divas of our time, and you can heckle me about this until the end of time, but I think that's great. So my reaction to the news this morning that Caitlyn Jenner is "turning into" a "diva" like the rest of the Kardashian and Jenner women (and men -- let's be real) was basically this: So what?

Radar Online reported that Caitlyn is demanding a "super deluxe" dressing room and 30 extra tickets to July's ESPY Awards ceremony. ESPN awarded Caitlyn the Arthur Ashe Courage Award this year, which, despite what some people are saying, was well deserved (in my opinion).

But that's not the argument at hand. The question is whether or not asking for all this extra stuff at the awards ceremony makes Caitlyn a diva. And yeah, I'd say using terms like "super deluxe" is definitely diva-like behavior. But why is that bad??

Caitlyn is quite literally the guest of honor at this event, so the hosts should expect to have to pamper her a little. Maybe the 30 tickets is a little excessive -- especially if we can assume that some/all of those are going to people who can afford the cost of a ticket -- but again, that's not really the point.

The point is that we (and I hate to go there, but yeah -- we as women) shouldn't be afraid to ask for what we want. If Caitlyn wants luxury, and she's in a place where she can reasonably expect that, then what's wrong with asking for it?

Let her have her dressing room and her tickets. As long as she's not kicking people around and being extraneously rude, whatev. Divas, a.k.a. strong and confident women, are something the world needs more of, I think.

Do you think Caitlyn is asking for too much?
