After critics gained the requisite number of signatures, it was announced California's Democratic Governor Gavin Newsom will face a recall election this upcoming November.
If voters choose to remove Newsom from office, they will also get the opportunity to elect a new governor and politicians from across the state have thrown their names into the hat.
One notable public figure running on the Republican ticket is Caitlyn Jenner.
Like many Republicans Jenner, a transgender woman, believes transgender children and teenage girls shouldn't be allowed to participate in women's athletics, saying "it's a question of fairness."
Of course, that hasn't stopped Jenner, a former Olympian, from competing in women's sports.
Something tells me she doesn’t really believe the things she says to try to get Republicans to vote for her. https://t.co/7bmM1yhb8A— Katelyn Burns (@Katelyn Burns)1619995654.0
Despite playing golf at a professional level before transitioning, Jenner now uses the women's golf tee, which is closer to the green.

For a chance at power, it seems Jenner is willing to sell out the happiness of young girls just like her.

Many compared Jenner's behavior to that of other Republicans.
She believes them for *other* people. Rules don't apply to her! Name a Republican that hasn't acted like that? https://t.co/ocas3aBkdv— Kalshann, all the world will be your enemy. (@Kalshann, all the world will be your enemy.)1620055866.0

Trans girls just want the same thing Caitlyn Jenner did. They want to play their own gender's sports and be recognized as girls.
If there's anything Jenner should understand, it's that.
