I believe Caitlyn's transformation from Bruce has overshadowed much more than his/her step-daughter Kim's pregnancy. In my opinion everyone is fascinated with someone who is so hugely in the spotlight going through this change. Whether people are gawking and mocking in a bad way or intense in their gratitude that so much attention has been brought to the issue, it is huge news.
Caitlyn Jenner's transition has overshadowed the news of Kim's pregnancy, and rightfully so. Caitlyn is bringing an issue to light that has been hidden in the shadows for far too long. Caitlyn's honesty is an inspiration to everyone, not just transgendered people. We are all better off being informed of this important issue.
Caitlyn Jenner's transition is a beacon of ever-evolving tolerance towards transgendered people, a teachable moment for many people who have never encountered a trans person in their lives. This is not in any way to be conflated with the pregnancy of a heterosexual socialite. One is important to the visibility and representation of an historically reviled and misunderstood minority. The other is a more run-of-the-mill, though happy, family event that at most will be featured on a reality show. I feel there is nothing to overshadow, as it would be akin to comparing apples to oranges.
On Sunday, it was revealed that Kim Kardashian was expecting her second child. While her news was important to the media, it took a backseat on Monday when Kim's former stepfather Bruce Jenner, made his debut as Caitlyn Jennfer on the cover of Vanity Fair. Bruce, who's been transitioning to become a woman as been very vocal about his plans and the reveal of Caitlyn happened on Monday it caught the world by storm, earning praise for her courageous act. Many may believe that Caitlyn is overshadowing Kim's pregnancy, but her Caitlyn has gained support over the weeks while Kim and the rest of the Kardashian clan's popularity has been floundering. Many people have gotten tired of The Kardashians so Caitlyn's reveal has not in any way overshadowed Kim's announcement.
