Unfortunately this doesn’t extend to every single question that you could possibly ask Siri about Bruce Jenner and seems to be determined upon what source Siri obtains it from – as evidenced by the below photographs – but it’s still great the Apple engineers have at least tried to integrate these kind of progressive politics into their famous virtual assistant. No news on whether Laura Jane Grace is getting the same treatment though.
