Of all the stories the media has covered in 2015, Caitlyn Jenner’s public transition has been one that, for the most part, has made me feel the most America, fuck yeah fuzzies. What could have been a study in hate ended up being just the opposite (even though she now has to deal with all the bullshit that comes along with being a woman).

That’s why it felt especially nice when Jenner posted an Instagram on July 4, honoring the America that continues to support her.

“Happy 4th of July!” she wrote in the caption. “Proud to be an American ... where at least I am free to be me.”

Woo woo, America! You are still a garbage country but we appreciate you allowing us do some of the things we want to do.
