Can we have a real discussion about Bruce Jenner?

The answer is a resounding NO. If you are not affirming Bruce Jenner then you better keep your mouth shut. Any questions, doubts or comments that can not be classified as complimentary will put you into hatespeak jail. The media has embraced Jenner and his story and that’s that. No room for discussion just room for affirmations. Share your thoughts.

A Celebration: Jacob’s Journey from Girl to Boy?

We are in the midst of a celebration of transexuals. Laverne Cox was the firsts transexual to be on the cover of time magazine. Jeffrey Tambour won an Emmy for his portrayal of a trans woman, and Bruce Jenner, Olympic decatholon winner is set to announce his trans status this Friday. What do all of them have in common? They are adults, and adults can make sound reasoned choices, but a 5 year old can not do this.  Most parents dictate the lives of 5 year old children. Children are often told what to eat, when to sleep, when to get up and what to wear, but this is a decision that the parents surrender to the child?  This week Kate Snow has been running a series of stories showcasing trans children. She profiled five year old Jacob who has transitioned from female to male, but does a 5 year old have the mental capacity to make this kind of decision? Read the linked story and share your thoughts.

Jamie Foxx blasted over Bruce Jenner joke…he is off limits but you can say whatever about the Kardashian women?

I must admit that I don’t keep up with the Kardashians, but if you are on social media you can not avoid them. There are tasteless jokes and comments about the Kardashian/Jenner women posted on a daily basis with very little backlash. That is why it is so interesting to see how the world has come to Bruce Jenner’s defense regarding the Jamie Foxx joke last night. Can we say double standard.

Bruce Jenner is transitioning to a woman

The Kardashians are reality royalty. They share everything with the world, and Bruce Jenner will be sharing his transition. Is there anything this family will not share?
