(PCM) This may be news, but it’s no surprise. Yet it is. People Magazine is early to report that it has confirmation Bruce Jenner is undergoing a change in his physical make-up into a woman. In the past this was called a sex change. In the current societal setting it’s known as transitioning to a woman.
Many know Bruce Jenner as the ex-husband to Kris Jenner on the reality TV show Keeping Up With the Kardashians. His initial celebrity break came as a national hero in the 1976 Olympics. Jenner won Gold in the decathlon. He could have continued but strict rules at the time meant any paid endorsements would disqualify him. Jenner’s rise to fame well before the Internet was in a print world, there were few ways to stand out and he did stand out. His celebrity as national hero was cemented when he took the cover of the breakfast cereal Wheaties. In that time such a feat was equal to the cover of Time Magazine.
Jenner seemed to always enjoy the spotlight and attempted many times over to break into film and television. It was not until 2007’s Keeping Up With The Kardashians that Bruce Jenner became a semi-household name once again. Mainly for his odd long hair and almost feminine behavior.
In years to come speculation on Jenner’s sexuality grew. From the sharp nose and lips work to long hair. For some viewers and media outlets it was a laughing matter. If People’s reporting is accurate, Jenner’s story will become a docu-series where Jenner may in fact give us a blow-by-blow account all the way down to going under the knife.
In 2013, Star Magazine ran a cover story reporting it had the goods on Bruce Jenner being a cross dresser and more. In light of this recent development Star’s credibility for accuracy has been gained a few notches.
It is being reported that his family is supportive and putting out there that Jenner is growing more comfortable and confident in his/herself. At 65, Jenner really has nothing to prove. Jenner’s sexuality isn’t going to affect his/her family or Jenner’s business ventures. Jenner will need to learn if the decision was right only through completing the process of taking on the physical traits of a woman, enabling himself/herself to be more the person he/she wants to be.
The transgender issue is the last hot topic in western society. Most do not care, and those that do, ignore it. Few are outraged by it and in Jenner’s case the west coast environment is the most socially accepting area of all. To this end if Jenner wants to portray him or herself as misunderstood and mistreated as a female, that show will only fly outside of modern day California.
Ultimately what Jenner is doing is interesting but it isn’t shocking, groundbreaking or at all unusual in today’s society. Still, you can bet the entertainment world will try at all costs to make money from this and find controversy where it can for ratings if Jenner continues his/her past behavior on screen.
