She said she could relate to some of the sentiments expressed by Caitlyn Jenner.

“Just yesterday I finally had a chance to read Caitlyn Jenner’s piece in the magazine…I cried” she said.

“I resonated with some of the themes of isolation, of being misunderstood – to not know if you have a conversation with somebody, will that relationship then end because they have seen you as one way.”

Plenty of people have drawn comparisons between Caitlyn’s story and that of the former president of the NAACP chapter president, but professionals say they don’t have the same issue.

“Most people who are transgender, [when they are] as early as 4 or 5, believe already that at some level that they are a child born with the wrong anatomy. I don’t see this [with Dolezal],” said Derald Wing Sue, a professor of psychology and education at Columbia University.

“I think [the comparison] is all an attempt to not really see the issue. The issue is deception, honesty and pretense. You have to get to the bottom of that.”
