For lack of anything decent to watch on TV late this evening, my wife watched part of a show on Bruce Jenner and his family. I couldn’t stomach it and went online. She told me later that he now has his daughters calling him “Caitlyn.” If I were them, I’d continue to call him “Dad,” after all, he WAS the one who fathered them. She also said that the girls and their mother profess to be Christians, though one of the girls is pregnant by a rapper related to Kanye West of all people. (How’s THAT for a “respectable” reference?) Oh well, accidents happen, especially when you’re out fornicating around. I’m ashamed to say that I was doing the same at her age.
My wife mentioned that someone asked him if he could only live as one, would he rather live as a woman or a man, and he said a man. I wonder why he doesn’t do it then; I guess there has to be some reason that he chooses to hold onto his “parts.” I wonder if maybe he’s come across a way to get a lot more “action” by swinging both ways, maybe as a sort of carnival freak-show for those involved.
The family is apparently still in near constant touch with him. At least that’s what it looked like when I sat down before the silent TV later. My wife had long ago gotten bored with watching the weirdness and had muted the TV and drifted off to sleep. Watching them interact, even in silence, you could tell there was a lot of hurt in the hearts of the daughters and ex-wife. I noticed one of the daughters turn her head away when he hugged her, despite smiling to his face. They were at a fancy restaurant having dinner, and I couldn’t help but notice what a masculine, almost homely excuse he was for the woman he professes to be now. Earlier, I’d noticed that he’d kept his manly voice, too.
It was when they left the restaurant that I may have gotten a clue to what it’s really all about. The paparazzi were snapping pictures galore as they left the restaurant. You know, at one time, Bruce Jenner was America’s golden boy. He even had a picture on the Wheaties box. As the years passed, though, he slowly faded from the forefront. Some folks get addicted to all that attention and try to keep it going. Perhaps, with all the sexual perversions in the news these days, he figured that was the way to revive being in the spotlight, and maybe even up his income. So, throwing the emotional well-being of his wife and daughters under the bus, along with his own reputation, he decided to become a Frankenstein sort of half male, half female being. I guess he got the attention back. Sadly he doesn’t even have a clue as to the ultimate price. © 2016
