Bruce Jenner is a former 1976 gold medal Olympic decathlon champion turned television personality.
Jenner achieved minor fame in various television episodes, but on national television, he recently professed to be a woman! He said that he has never been attracted to men and has always been heterosexual but now considers himself asexual.
In a television interview he identified himself as a “transwoman.” It seems Bruce doesn’t know what he is.
“For all intents and purposes, I am a woman,” he told Diane Sawyer. “I was not genetically born that way and as of now I have all the male parts…But I still identify as female.”
This kind of talk reveals that he has simply refused to accept reality. He can call himself a goat but that doesn’t change anything.
He was married for 24 years to Kris Jenner and fathered six children! Now, to most sane people that qualifies him as a male. For sure, he is not a female.
Bruce, and others are rebelling against themselves in refusing to accept reality. His dream world is becoming a nightmare and you can watch it unfold on national television. Bruce seems to be grasping for some fleeting fame no matter how tawdry.
Former Senator Rick Santorum opined that we should “love and accept” Bruce whatever gender he decides to be! Rick has been correct on most of his comments on public issues; however, he is way out in left field with Jenner.
Of course we must love Bruce no matter how many dumb decisions he makes, but it is another thing to “accept” his body modification and any mutilation.
The former senator said “If he says he’s a woman, then he’s a woman,” but that is a stupid, senseless, silly statement. I can say I am the most handsome man in America; however, no one believes it and my own mirror refutes the statement.
Transgenders can self-identify as male, female, neither or both!
Gender identity means an “individual’s actual or perceived gender,” but that is modern psychobabble. How about my self-perception as a concert pianist?
I couldn’t sell enough tickets to fill a telephone booth! (Remember those?) Or a 40 year old who perceives himself as 70 and demands social security benefits. Or a community organizer who thinks he is president of the U.S.? Oops, got off topic.
Daddy was right when he said, “The world is crazy as a bedbug.” Crazier.
While I have no official documentation of Jenner’s maleness, I can assume he is male. He looks male, sounds male, and has fathered children so most reasonable people, not driven by a perverse agenda, would declare his maleness.
Bruce should look closely at the men who had their bodies mutilated to “become the woman they were” and note that they are still male. Note their large hands, wide hips, Adam’s apple, and their obvious other male features. No amount of mutilation or hormones can change that.
Radical leftists, always looking for a cause that proves their broadmindedness, have jumped on this bandwagon as the newest battle for “civil rights.”
But it’s not civil and it’s not rights and if America keeps hurtling down the Road to Sodom.
With the gross immorality, nudity, vulgar entertainment, pornography, same sex “marriage” and “anything goes” attitude this great nation is becoming Sodom with electricity.
The madness seems to be contagious and it is “caught” in the schools, media, the courts, and the legislatures. California has ruled that male athletes in public schools can play on girl’s teams if they identify as a female and will have complete access to the girl’s locker rooms! The ruling also applies to physical education classes. In fact, any teacher or other school employee is permitted to come to school in drag and boldly proclaim his or her “sexuality” and use the restroom of his or her choice. California is Sodom west.
San Francisco Democrat Tom Ammiano told the Los Angeles Times some parents may be uncomfortable with their children sharing restrooms with students of a different sex, but he said, “It’s also important to protect our children from prejudice.” Most parents are more concerned about protecting them from perverts and predators, not prejudice.
“There’s no trampling of other people’s rights,” he said. “There’s a recognition that other people have the same rights that you do.” Just a minute. Did he say that there was “no trampling of other people’s rights?” What about the rights of little girls to use a restroom without being leered at or worse by boys who don’t even know what they are?
Will churches be forced to provide transgendered restrooms?
Of course they will, and some “evangelical” churches will try to justify it by “love,” “kindness,” and “Christlikeness.” One church in Washington, D.C., Calvary Baptist Church, ordained a woman who was previously ordained as a man, to the gospel ministry! That was “Baptist,” folks.
It makes my skin crawl. He, she or it was educated at the George W. Truett Theological Seminary and pastored a church in central Texas. She is married to a woman who supports her change of life! Hand me a barf bag.
And a word to Bruce: You are a handsome man but a homely woman.
You should get your mind fixed, not your genitalia!
