A Man Becomes A Woman… In Other News, Everything.
Why is everyone still talking about Bruce Jenner? It was trending on Twitter last night and I’m thinking “… must be a slow news day… guy wants to be a woman…” Meanwhile in Nepal 8 million people are affected by an earthquake and still struggling to get supplies and in Baltimore and tones of other states, people are mourning and protesting the death of Freddie Gray. So… a sex change trumps this
I assume gender reassignment would definitely be tougher when you’re in the spotlight as everyone has something to say; some irrelevant opinion. But they’re just a person like you or I and we really shouldn’t be saying anything except words of support.
Some papers and gay verticals in media (such as Huffington Post Gay-Voices) are giving the transformation a lot of attention to show the world this happens and it’s just one of those things people have to get used to. Which I agree with, but TIMING PEOPLE!
So anyway, as I tweeted a while back, you can donate to the Nepal disaster relief efforts here. Also, if you haven’t seen some of those absolutely intense YouTube videos taken during the earthquake, check em out below but viewer discretion is advised, they are pretty intense.
