Caitlyn Jenner has arrived fully emblazoned on and in "Vanity Fair." A blaze of fabulous clothes, cars, new boobs and hair. Cheekbones to die for and eyebrows, as the young kids say, "on fleek."
I'm reading the hoopla and, of course, checking out the pictures. I watched the Diane Sawyer special on her and was impressed with how well Diane tackled the subject and showcased the very real struggle. I was touched that (at the time Bruce was still referring to himself as he) he was honest and candid about his journey. I couldn't imagine the lifelong struggle. I empathized with him greatly about that especially since someone I love has lived this journey all of her life.
And then...he said something that made me BLINK.
He said that, of course he's a Republican and I BLINKED again and again and again. It really made me sit back and go...WOW.
The unabashed privilege of Bruce Jenner now Caitlyn was fully displayed. The struggle that others face daily when going through this transition, was never there. The money and the fame made him the automatic poster child even though other backs have been broken since the Roman Empire. Caitlyn is on the cover of Vanity Fair, is a part of a hit reality show and has a new show about to come out. Caitlyn is full of money that she will protect at all costs while you pull yourself up by your bootstraps. LOL!
I am glad to see we are living in a world where people are more comfortable living their truth proudly. That warms my heart.
Caitlyn? Old girl is a Republican. LOL!
I mean...I guess right. To each his own, blah, blah, blah.
Sometimes though...it simply makes my eyes squint.
