Pulse Opinion Nigerians should leave Caitlyn Jenner alone

There are bigger things that Nigerians should fight against and Caitlyn Jenner is not one of them.

The self-righteous attitude of Nigerians will never cease to amaze me. Last week, DSTV announced that it was yanking the transgender reality show 'I Am Cait' off air after receiving complaints from the National Broadcasting Commission.

According to MultiChoice, owners of DSTV,  the decision to pull down the show follows instruction from the regulatory body, NBC after most Nigerians described the show as 'unfit for kids.'

'I'm Cait' is a reality series which focuses on the 65-year-old Caitlyn Jenner, and her personal journey as a transgender.

This protest from Nigerians is just baffling. Don't these parents know that DSTV has parental controls and that if they don't want their kids to watch any particular show on the channel all they have to do is activate the parental guidance features?

Why do we Nigerians behave like they live in the Vatican and everything around us must be holy and pure? I will always say this, Nigerians are the most hypocritical people in the world. Nigerians play the moral card in public but behind closed doors they are as freaky as anyone else.


If you check the list of most popular sites visited by Nigerians you are bound to see the xvideos.com (a porn site) as the 39th most visited site in the country. Who are the people going to this porn site? I have a feeling that these are the same Nigerians that complained about Caitlyn Jenner.

Another man's poison is another man's meat. If I enjoy watching 'I'm Cait' why should my favourite show be yanked off because some sanctimonious Nigerians feel it is wrong? Don't these same people know that there is something called a remote control. We live in an era of individual choices, no one should force his beliefs down another person's throat.

This Caitlyn Jenner issue really highlights how much of cowards we are in this country. The only thing that can rile up Nigerians into action is morals. When it comes to politics and the well-being of our nations Nigerians stop being vocal.

If Nigerians can protest that Caitlyn Jenner's reality show be removed from their TV I see no reason why they can't protest that our lawmakers slash their salaries. I see no reason why these Nigerians can't force the President to do something about the Fulani herdsmen. This is what is killing this country. We focus on the minor and ignore the major.

Let's all stop the charade. We are not morally righteous people. We are hypocrites and cowards who prefer to fight Caitlyn Jenner and not our politicians.
