The only member of the Kardashian/Jenner machine that fascinates me and captures a smidgen of interest is Caitlyn Jenner. Caitlyn was always Bruce. I peeped the early years and I can tell you that there was every indication that we were watching a woman pretending to be a dude.
I also don’t believe for a second that she made the big reveal in order to finally be “free”, just like I don’t buy the scenes where she and her family are trying to make sense of how they will cope after “Bruce” leaves the fold.
Bullshit. The Kardashian/Jenner Klan are an organization that operates on the principle that anything for money and fame is a legitimate pursuit. If you’re familiar with their origin — then you know exactly what I’m talking about.
That being said, it’s quite obvious that they all made their peace with Bruce/Caitlyn’s transition eons ago. I would even go as far as to say that Kris herself orchestrated the whole thing. This was a saga in the making and possibly the only reason why the prized Olympian agreed to do the show in the first place.
Let’s get this straight. Caitlyn was Caitlyn long before you imagined there would ever be a Caitlyn Jenner.
Now that she’s “free”, she’s simply living the life she was always living — but this time she’s the star. Plus, she’s a lot richer and way more famous than before. She’s an American champion — and with that comes prestige and acknowledgment. When you’re a woman, that usually translates into red carpet events, designer gowns, make up sessions, and tons of expensive shit — you don’t have to pay for.
But of course Ms. Jenner’s reason for wanting to be “free” is to use her celebrity status to help the transgender community. And to show the ordinary folks who can’t afford her privileged lifestyle or the extensive surgical operations she has endured that they too can be “free”.
All they have to do is ask her how she was able to find the courage to make that leap. No pun intended.
I’m so sure they can learn a thing or two from a reality TV star who spends her “free” time jaunting around hot spots in Malibu and then jet setting it to NYC to catch her step-daughter’s manic-genius hubby fashionably drop his new LP in Madison Square Garden.
It’s really not the fact that Caitlyn (who was never Bruce) wants us to accept her right to live as she chooses. That’s cool. I mean, who the fuck cares? There are things I wish I could change about my life but unfortunately, I can’t make it happen with hair, cheek, breasts and lip implants. No, my issues are way deeper than any surgical knife can muster.
It’s really the awful deceit of it. The sneaky way that it was fed to the public as if this was an affecting story of triumph that needed to be told because it could possibly save lives.
That’s a really shitty thing to do —especially when you consider that the LGBT community is dealing with serious issues that can’t be downplayed or ridiculed. There are real people out there that are desperate and scared and don’t have the support or resources to help make the pain go away.
And here we have this over-packaged and over-pampered television star, who has finally been cast in her own soap opera — that is supposed to be a diary of her journey through this daunting task of finding out what it feels like to be free.
Anyone who has seen her docu-series knows it’s a complete joke — and so is she.
