This is a work of art that has the effect of making one feel quite queasy.
If there is a single truth about Magic, it is that nothing on earth so efficiently evades it.

Did not see this coming.

What did you not see coming? Jenner's interview in Vanity Fair was announced a while back.

A line from the interview: "I'm not doing this so I can hit it off the women’s tee."

Oh, wait, don't tell me ... You're upset about the 'no pants' thing again.

What I never saw coming was Bruce on the cover of "Vanity Fair" in a woman's bathing suit. That is what I never saw coming. Guess you knew all along. That is because you are so clever and sophisticated.

I am not upset about anything. Who said I am upset? I am a little startled that he looks so good. Smile

Nah, I didn't know about the cover and never said I did ... I said I knew about the interview.

I wasn't sure what you had and had not heard about, or what you were surprised about, which is why I asked.

An interesting choice of word, all things considered.

Publicity stunt?

I don't know.

Bruce Jenner was a star athlete. He was talented, motivated, and successful. He rode that success, and made money giving us Wheaties. Then he faded into obscurity, like 99% of public figures do.

Then came the Kardashians. Bruce made money, and was in the spotlight again. Bruce became Caitlyn in that spotlight.

BORING!

The most interesting question to me is not about Bruce turning into Caitlyn, but about Bruce/Caitlyn's need to share her personal travels with the rest of us.

The most interesting question to me is why some people are willing to share their most personal, intimate decisions with us. I'm not interested in their decisions in the least. But I'm interested in their need.

It's a weird world.

We all have a road to walk. We usually walk it alone. Inviting people to watch us walk...is...well...strange to me.

GACK! No. NO! N-n-n-NOOO! OMG! I can't unsee this. O - M - G!!!! When...how...why...AAARRRGH! I do not follow "the news". 98% of it is trash. This is Bruce Jenner? Like, 65+ years old? What the hell happened here? Sheesh, marry a Kardashian and it turns ya into a woman! Shaking my head ruefully...

I am with stoneunhinged on this one. I find the need to share puzzling. I never even told my family my birthday.

Bruce was an inspirational athlete. Like many inspirational athletes it seems to become a train crash afterwards. If he wants to become a she, that is her privilege. But doing it in public like this? Bizarre.

Over here charismatic boxing promoter Frank Maloney became Kellie Maloney, but she did it under the radar, and only went public when forced to by the evil tabloid press over here. She is not regarded as a figure of fun, but as someone who has adjusted their gender to what it perhaps should always have been. Bruce Jenner, on the other hand, will go down as a big joke. And all self-inflicted.

Well, keep in mind that Jenner's transitioning WAS out of public and under the radar for decades. "Jenner cross dressed for many years and began physically transitioning in the 1980s with hormone replacement therapy". Did YOU know about this in the 80s? The 90s? The 00s? Seems to me it was out of the public eye for decades, about as long as it possibly could be.

But now that his kids are celebrities, and since Jenner's car crash some months ago brought some unwanted media attention, the transitioning inevitably came out in a bigger way.

Maybe the reason She "Came Out" is the FACT that the media definitely would have "Outed" Her anyway. At least by going public She could tell Her story Her way Before the Media makes a spectacle of the whole situation (which some in the Media already have).

It's NOBODY'S business anyway and those who thinks it's funny and feel the need to ridicule and make jokes towards Transgenders, Gays, Lesbians, or any other persuasion, are the ones who really have a problem.

If you take a reality TV deal, you don't get to play the "My private life is nobody's business" card.

I agree but reality TV or Fictitious TV, Rock Star, Celebrity of any sort, deserves and should have a private Life. Same as any Human. Same as you and me.

Just because "You don't get to play the my private Life is nobody's business card", doesn't make it right. Wrong is Wrong, PERIOD!

I don't think that was the issue here, was it? I thought the issue was why Jenner's transitioning became public knowledge instead of remaining a purely private matter. Part of the reason, indeed, is because Jenner became more of a celebrity in recent months / years.

Wasn't a lot of attention drawn back to this when he had the car accident? (I know there were lots of sick jokes about him drag racing, etc.) Seems to me, though, that if you're a public figure like Jenner is, it would be pretty hard to keep a sex change secret.
