Advertisements I TIVOed it the other night - and we watched it last night. I was actually much better than I had expected. Tastefully done. Transgendered folks have been popping up on TV since Christine Jorgensen, Rene Richards and the various folk Phil Donohue introduced us to so many years ago. Yet for some folks this is all "news stuff" and worthy of kneejerk reactions. I've had friends who went this path since the mid-70s - its not an easy path, its expensive, and tough enough with the usual snark in grocery stores and daily life. I can't even imagine the strength it takes to do something like that for a nationally known athlete. Add in religious feelings and a conservative background as even more to overcome. Looks like Bruce (only name I know to use so far) is doing as well as possible for someone tall (6'2in), starting so late in life (65) ... And about the Washington Post article from an "Inside Edition" staff "reporter". Understand that Zooey, the person who wrote that article in the WaPo is a newly minted trans-person that didn't see fit to even mention her own background in the article. She is also quite busy trying to become a trans spokes-person herself - so her motives are in question. How can I even respond to the dichotomy of nearly back to back sentence like this in her article: Jenner has already shown that her public transition is more about promoting herself than promoting the transgender community. Though she had a major platform in her reality television show and celebrity, Jenner stayed quiet, leaving her transition in the hands of the media. Jenner is, after all, a champion and a champion is exactly what the movement needs. ================= As near as I can tell, Zooey hadn't even seen the show at the time she did her "review" or article or whatever it is, so she is merely speculating that it was more Kardashian grandstanding. From actually watching the interview, I did not think it was, other than Bruce being quite proud and protective of the various children and grandchildren.
