Like my sister Meg, I did not watch the Bruce Jenner interview. And I have no plans to watch it anytime soon (if ever).

It is nothing against Ms. Jenner or her coming out. In fact, I congratulate her and anyone else who comes out.

But after trying to sort out my womanhood for over 50 years, I have heard, seen and read it all before and do not want to spend any time hearing, seeing and reading it all over again.

It is the same way I feel about reality television shows. I don’t want to waste whatever time I have left on this planet watching other people live their lives; I have my own life to live.

And so it goes.

  1. Well said, it is not such a big deal this side of "The Pond" yet I suspect that we have not heard the last of this.

  2. "Sister Meg"

    Awwww. Thank you.

  3. I have not seen the Jenner interview yet and the odds are that I will not. But we cannot be obtuse to the event. Like many things there are positive and negative things about it and it is just one more event that does serve to put the issue of gender variance, right, wrong or indifferent, into the public square.

  4. As another one on this side of the pond, I must say I have no idea who Jenner is, I may get around to looking, will add it to my "to do" list, If I can find the d*mn thing...

    I too l have not seen the interview. I support the MS. Jenner decision but, like you, I do not want to rehash all the stuff I have struggled with for (in my case) sixty + years. Best wishes to her and best wishes to all of us as well.

  6. Stana -

    I wasn't looking to see the Jenner interview. However, the non-trans friend I was with wanted to see Jenner, so I complied with her wishes. The media circus leading up to the interview was terrible. But I was surprised that the interview was conducted with respect, and left Jenner with a form of integrity.

    I'm more concerned about the E! network series that Jenner will be in later this year. This may become as much of a circus as the Kardashian shows were. I prefer to remember the Jenner who had some dignity, than one who is likely to come out of a "reality" show.


  7. Thank you for saying so.... I too , don't care to watch either....

  8. Hello, Bruce Jenner was a U.S. Olympic Athlete who won the Gold Medal in the Decathlon at the Summer Olympics in Montreal, Canada in 1976. Most people believe it is one of the hardest events to win a Gold Medal in because you must compete in several different contests and each competitor is awarded points based on what position they finished in each contest and the competiter with the highest amount of total points wins.

  10. I thought I was the only one who did not want to watch it. For me it my hit too close to home. I, like Ms. Jenner am moving forward. My brother saw it and wants to talk to me about it. So we are going to talk this weekend. I have read about it and I think overall, it is beneficial to our cause. Especially since he is a conservative "believe in the constitution" republican. I want to see how Republicans who are trying to go after the Transgender community handle the fact that they are going after Ms. Jenner, one of their own.
