If Bruce Jenner can become a woman i can become a T-Rex, this was the first thought that came to mind when reading that Bruce Jenner went trough with his sex change. He or she or it, no idea what to call Bruce or Caitlyn, it’s already confusing for me, opened up a twitter account after the sex change and broke the record that Obama set, with getting the most followers within 24 hours. Caitlyn Jenners account reached within 24 hours more them 1.4 million followers. Barack Obama had 1 million followers within 24 hours. So black and being president of one of the worlds largest nations wasn’t more impressive then being a former track and field athlete that turned himself into a woman. Even his Wikipedia page has been changed and it appears that Bruce his male spores are slowly disappearing from the world wide web (if that would even be possible).
Like i said, the first thing coming to mind was that if Bruce Jenner can become a woman i can become a T-Rex. Why would i want to turn myself into a T-rex? I don’t have a clue, but the same question comes to mind when someone undergoes a sex change and turns himself into a woman. Why would you do this? Does it have to do with self-respect? Don’t you love yourself the way God( or if you don’t believe in one, how your parents) made you? In my world it seems screwed up to do a thing like this. Not because of the people around me telling me that it’s weird, but because i think it’s weird, strange, screwed up. I estimate that around 80% of the world population thinks like that (which actually frightens me, because that means that 20% thinks it’s normal to cut of your Jimmy or to paste one on and close the hole). Transgenders have been around for a while now, just people like you and me with a small ( or maybe big) change. Now that Bruce pulls off this well prepared stunt the entire world worships him like he is some kind of a God… Strange world we live in.
Maybe i shouldn’t judge. I have nog idea what a person like Bruce has going on in his head. To my opinion it’s far from normal to have a sex change, but in his world it’s probably the same as getting a vanilla ice cream with sprinkles (don’t you get any ideas now Stacy). Like i said, i shouldn’t judge him or her or it or whatever… I don’t know what is going on in his head. I don’t have to agree with someone else’s decision. In the end we are all our own persons with our own thought, opinions and needs. I just hope he knows what he is doing and doesn’t have any regrets later on. It’s not like his little Elvis wil grow back..
Don’t hate me for having an opinion. Care to comment?
