Rob Kardashian's post about his sister makes it pretty clear how he feels about Caitlyn

Caitlyn Jenner rolled deep at the ESPYs with what appeared to be most of her family and children in tow.

The camera often, during Caitlyn's acceptance speech for the Arthur Ashe Courage Award, panned down to the most famous of the bunch, the Kardashian sisters and Kylie and Kendall Jenner. You could often see Brody and some of Jenner's other children in the background, too.

But notably missing was former stepson Rob Kardashian.

Rob, the reclusive socks designer, decided against making a public appearance, even for such a momentous occasion. And while he chose not to publicly support Jenner, he did throw up a sign of support for his sister Kourtney in the wake of her recent nasty breakup with long-time boyfriend Scott Disick.

Showing he was still thinking about his family, Rob shared an adorable photo of his niece Penelope Disick, giving a shout-out to both the 3-year-old's mother and father.

Is Rob withholding public support because he in fact doesn't support Caitlyn Jenner? Or is he just dealing with his own demons and doesn't care to make his support public?
