Why I Do Not Celebrate Caitlyn Jenner

Posted by Troy on 1st July 2015 in Current Events

We have been hit over the head about how Bruce Jenner should be celebrated for his bravery in becoming a woman.  People that say this are wrong and do not really mean it.

A friend comes to you and says, “Man, I really feel…like, deep down…like…I should have been born a blind man.  So tonight, I’m going to cut out my own eyes.”  Wouldn’t you try to stop him?  Wouldn’t you notify his family or the authorities?

A friend comes to you and says, “You know, I really think I should have been white.  So, tonight, I am going to undergo radical skin surgery so that I can look white.”  Wouldn’t you be horrified?  Wouldn’t you try to talk him out of it?  If you’re a liberal, wouldn’t you try to tell him that he should be proud of his race and condemn this racist society for making him feel guilty about not being white?

A friend comes to you and say, “You know, I really can’t bear the shame of being white.  My people have destroyed the world and oppressed all the other races.  I am going to have my entire body tattooed so that I can be black.”  Even if you are a liberal, wouldn’t you tell him something like, “Oh, I understand, and you are right to feel that way, but you shouldn’t do something like that.  It’s like blackface!  You should give the money that you would have spent on the tattooing to the NAACP instead!”

The thing is, that in all these cases, people are talking about doing harmful things to their body IN REJECTION to how they were made.  In all these cases, the moral thing would be to tell the person that they should not go through with their plans.

Even on the liberal side of things, you’re supposed to preach, “You’re perfect the way you are…”  awwwww!  :)

So why is it different?  Just because it’s about sex/gender?  Truth: Bruce can no more be a woman than I can be a house cat, and I realllllly wanna be a house cat.  14 hours of sleep a day sounds pretty awesome.  Wanting something doesn’t make it so.  Me sitting around licking myself should have about as much legitimacy as Bruce mutilating his own body.

It’s needless!  Gender isn’t supposed to be the same thing as sex.  That’s what liberals had been force-feeding us this for years.  You can have a penis and still wear makeup and dresses and high heels or whatever you like.

Don’t get me wrong.  I am a Libertarian.  It’s his body, and he can do whatever he wants.  But I will not celebrate someone needlessly mutilating their body.  And, in truth, unless you’d celebrate the decisions of the above examples, neither do you.  People are not celebrating Caitlyn Jenner.  They are celebrating their own “tolerance.”  That’s all.

Long Live the Constitution!
