I got the impression they at at his house. I could be wrong though.
Yes, the interview was at his house. Toward the end of the interview, they walked down the hall to the bedroom and Bruce showed Diane a dress from his closet.
But I think they said that Diane and "her" were going to go out to dinner shortly after the interview.
I didn't get the impression they were going out for dinner, they could have had dinner at the house.
I thought he had invited her to his house for a dinner party.
Oh, so that explains it. I don't pay attention to ANY of that crap, so much so that I had no idea he was in on any of that. And here I was scratching my head, wondering why so many people actually gave a crap about some Olympic athlete from 40 years ago. That explains it...they DONT give a crap about the athlete...just the "reality" TV star. Mystery solved. Thanks.
Wow that was even more cynical than the post you quoted.
Disregarding the assumption that anyone only cares about him because of his very small presence on a very popular show, I submit that any exposure that helps humans care more about each other and learn more about the difficult challenges they face is probably good.
Bruce Jenner is still the same Olympic Champ. Just because you forgot about him doesn't mean everyone else did.
Apparently #PaintYourNailsForBruce is a thing in Australia now, and catching on world wide.
I think it's kind of cute, guys (and girls) painting their nails to show support for Bruce. Hopefully it will make him feel a bit more supported in his choice.
That's cool. I remember in the interview he was looking forward to being able to wear nail polish long enough for it to chip.
Serious questions here.
Once he goes through with the surgery and becomes a woman physically, is she then still considered a trans or simply a woman?
Also, he stated that he only likes women. So will she then be a lesbian after the surgery?
He speaks to both points in the interview
I'm more interested in how these questions are addressed in the LGBT community.
i've never known anyone to put their sexual orientation or gender self-identity up for popular vote by others.
time for a poll.
I wasn't very satisfied with the non-answer on sexual preference and it seemed that Diane Sawyer wasn't satisfied either, as she brought it up again later in the interview. I understand Jenner's point that sexual identity and sexual preference are two completely separate things. But I don't see how that's an answer to the question about whether Jenner would be considered to be homosexual if s/he presents as a woman and is sexually attracted to women.
That all depends on how narrow minded one is..Some states will grant F legal status without surgery, others require surgery, but if you ask someone who'd been through it the answer is usually they "have always been <targeted gender> inside" and I have to respect that.
I would imagine his answer is "it's complicated"
But then isn't all love that way?
Best quote I've heard come out of the discussions
"who you go to bed WITH is not directly tied to who you go to bed AS"
Those are all just labels. Labels only matter to those who need to separate people into categories.
I agree...and I'll say that I really found myself questioning the whole idea of gender identity to begin with, as I was watching this. What is the point of it, other than just being a label?
If you have a penis you're supposed to act and dress a certain way...if you have a vagina, a different set of rules. Cross over the line too far and you are shamed and ridiculed. Why?
I have it on very good authority that it's crucial in deciding whether or not to be angry about someone being in the same public bathroom as you.
But that seems to be the extent of it.
Ya I wanted to try to work that in there but I didn't manage to.
