“She[Bruce Jenner] is, in that sense, transitioning from a Jenner to a full-blown Kardashian” – Mark Steyn
I wasn’t sure I was even going to write about Bruce Jenner “transitioning” to a woman. I mean, sorry folks, but he’s not actually a woman. A person’s sex is not a social construct; it’s a biological reality, unchanged by hash tags or E Television. You can’t just change your sex with hormones, surgery, or a new twitter account. The fact that people are buying into his delusion is frightening. In the old days, if a person thought they were Napoleon we threw them in a lunatic asylum. Now I guess we would make him emperor of France. We’re even allowing him to take his delusion to medical extremes. Doctor’s are allowed to pump a man full of female hormones, regardless of the damage to his body, so he can pretend to be a woman, but won’t pump male hormones into a male for the purpose of enhancing athletic performance.
I’m not mad at the guy, just the opposite. I feel bad for the suffering he’s enduring with this psychological disorder. Although we’ve made enormous advances in medicine, it seems in some ways when it comes to psychiatric and psychological disorders, we’re still in the dark ages, applying leeches. But the outing of Jenner’s disorder does explain a lot of things, such as his marriage to Kris Kardashian. If I’m mad at anything, it’s the media’s reaction. Their praise for his “courage,” and the use of female pronouns when referring to Jenner seems to justify his delusion. Apparently style books in newsrooms have totally gone crazy. But…. given that there isn’t much in the way of real treatment for disorders like Jenner’s, if prancing around in a dress make him feel better, than he should do it. But after reading that Jenner’s son Brody has a girlfriend named Kaitlynn, I recommend Bruce continue with a lot of therapy. It sounds like he needs it.
But when is a delusion a fraud? Or….did the fraud come first, and then the delusion? I’m referring to Rachel Dolezal, leader of the Spokane NAACP and self proclaimed African American. In a way, I’m surprised we don’t have more Rachels. A white liberal, from a white liberal family; so identifies with victimhood and victimization that she wants to be that victim. Despising her white privileged skin, she adopts a different personal, pulls a Soul Man and gets a scholarship to attend Howard University and basically lived with it for years; successfully too. Faking being Black, getting a scholarship meant for a Black person…if that doesn’t define White Privilege; I don’t know what does.
She became the leader of the NAACP in Spokane, Washington. Whether the NAACP knew she was white or that’s a chapter filled with the biggest collection of dummies ever. In any case, they’re supporting her. How long they will I don’t know. I don’t see how this ends other than her losing her teaching gig of “Africana Studies” at Eastern Washington University and resigning from her leadership position in the NAACP.
At some point in the future, after all of this is over, an interview with Dolezal about why she wanted to leave her position of “privilege” as a White woman to pick up the mantel of oppression as a Black woman might really be revealing. However it’s unlikely that she’ll ever give an honest interview. Why start now?
So Jenner wants to be a chick, Dolezal wants to be Black…hey if there are any Black women who would like to be White men, apparently the door is wide open.
