After a somewhat awkward exchange on "Ellen" last week, Caitlyn Jenner now says she supports gay marriage.
Let's talk about why that matters.
Why should we care that a woman who makes her living raising Kardashians on reality TV (as opposed to, say, working as a county clerk) has publicly evolved on a topic that has already been settled in the highest court of the land? (If not, frustratingly, in the court of public opinion.)
Because it's a win for a rare type of acceptance and support: the kind that doesn't directly benefit the person offering it.
