Blame it on Kim, Kourtney, Khloe, Kendall, Kylie and Kris.
Following on the heels of Men’s Rights idiots Janet “JudgyBitch” Bloomfield and Christian J, a writer for Return of Kings is suggesting that Bruce Jenner is transitioning out of envy at the attention the assorted Kardashian women get from paparazzi and the press.
As David Garrett sees it, Jenner is upset that he’s been
perpetually upstaged and outshone by his now ex-wife Kris Kardashian, his daughters, and his stepdaughters. Despite his immutable achievements as a sportsman and national hero, Jenner was, as a man, undoubtedly emasculated by the reality that his past talent and glory meant nothing against the vainglory of the women in his family.
So, naturally, Jenner as turned to what Garrett sees as the most obvious solution: a sex change.
It comes as no surprise that Bruce Jenner has taken the path of “gender transitioning.” Has Jenner equated being female with the fame, “respect,” and adoration he seems to desperately crave? Plastic surgery to capture (or caricature) his long-gone looks failed to generate anything but observers’ mirth.
Somehow it doesn’t occur to Garret that Jenner’s surgeries just might possibly have been part of an attempt to look more, you know, feminine? To better align the outside with the inside?
So what other choice was there to make?
I’m pretty sure there are easier ways for an already famous person to get the public’s attention than this.
Jenner’s choice has been vindicated, however sickly, as he has reached a level of fame and recognition he never could have as a normal man in the Kardashian-Jenner family.
Sure, I mean, who doesn’t want the paparazzi dogging your every move and Twitterers making endless jokes about you while you are in the middle of a complicated and emotionally fraught process to become outwardly the gender you always knew you were?
Inasmuch as he has made what most ROK readers will regard as a reckless, bizarre, and mentally ill decision, I do feel sorry for Bruce Jenner. It is hard not to feel sorry for someone who had the world at his feet and then saw it stripped from him. Retirement is hard enough for former sporting champions, particularly those with an Olympic gold medal or NBA Championship MVP award.
Jenner retired — from sports, at least — nearly four decades ago, and has kept pretty busy since.
When you add the surreal life of being the so-called “patriarch” of the Kardashian-Jenner family, depression, and gender identity issues seemingly come with the territory.
Uh, Jenner has had “gender identity issues” since childhood.
The true terror of the Bruce Jenner saga is that it does nothing to dissuade the countless women who want to copy the lifestyles, asses, or lip-puckerings of Kim, Kylie, or Kendall.
Yeah, because that’s what it’s all about.
Naturally, the commenters on ROK are even more thoughtful than Garrett’s, er, analysis. By which I mean, holy crap, if you’re having a pretty decent day you might want to just skip the rest of this post.
LegallySpeaking hails Jenner’s marketing acumen:
[H]e’s upped the ante. As a man, a sex tape was not a big enough show stopper. Coming out as gay was now old hat.
But jumping on the emerging tranny train? Hallelujah, Brucy screamed blasphemously.
It’s telling how fake this is in that he’s not having the surgery, but merely “taking the hormones” and dressing like a woman. In other words, things he can lie about doing in private and then make a big show of doing when the cameras are watching.
Brigadon has some interesting thoughts on military strategy:
You know, i am not normally a fan of muslims, but using fags and dysphorics as terminally-guided munitions sounds like a pretty good idea.
CamelJockey isn’t sold on the “attention whore” theory.
Bruce doesn’t crave the attention like the Kardashian women do. He doesn’t really care that much about being in front of the camera on the show.
He’s transitioning to a woman because he’s a weak man and his cunt wife and her daughters broke Bruce down mentally.
Leeroy Jenkins thinks it’s all about the balls, both figuratively and literally. Actually, he seems to have some difficulty telling real and figurative balls apart.
His whole life he trained his body physically, and his balls were shriveling up in the process. He had a male coach for his body but no male coach for his mind, and this is the result, utter confusion. He went through life with same “just be nice to wimminz and dey will luv u” nonsense that i and the rest of you guys started out with. I think the problem is, is that he can’t let this philosophy go because he wouldn’t be able to stomach the fact he’s been wrong his whole life. To him the problem can’t possibly be he has a lack of balls and has been grovelling at his daughters and ex-wife’s feet his whole life. It must be he was never meant to have balls in the first place.
An anonymous commenter wonders why Jenner wasn’t just spinning plates:
Bruce Jenner was olympic gold medalist. He could have been alpha male with harem. He’s fucked in the head mentally, probably molested as infant and can’t remember the experience. Its illegal in many countries for doctors to do gender re-assignment surgery, its considered taking advantaged of a mentally ill person for profit. American culture is sick from a disease called feminism, that wants traditional gender roles erased, so this behavior is celebrated.
doktorjeep is pretty sure that he knows “m2f trannies” better than they know themselves:
I have at times theorized on something about m2f trannies. Not sure if it’s true, but I took a course in human sexuality in college and got to see a host of interviews and accounts by trannies.
They all say the same thing “I feel free”.
Now I for one can’t understand this state of mind called freedom being based on that which dangles between the legs. But I can understand that this might be where the “omega tranny” thing comes from: a total dateless wonder so full up on man-hate dogma that they decide to get sex changes to get an upper hand in the game. But, if one were to sit there and think “hmmm. Women seem to get the upper hand in a rigged game and I can’t win. Therefore, become a woman…”, then that would in some ways be a (partially at least) open door to red pill thinking. …
[T]his could be the result of fathers or even a “culture in the family” of men thinking that to be a man is to be overworked downtrodden and miserable in some beta self-sacrifice to the happiness of the women. Now throw in sex change education and glorification of it …
You see being all work and no play, as a man, and having no say in the household (like hiding in a man cave for example), IMO, is how you raise a boy to become a woman, because you give him the impression through example that it sucks to be otherwise.
Brilliant theory, dude. Totally nailed it.
