Please Note that the purpose of this post is not criticize personal choices. It is meant to express my views and solicit reactions to a widely covered public announcement.
It's a fact that Bruce Jenner has transitioned and publicly announced "he" is now a "she" who called Caitlyn Jenner.
And, by now, most people know that Jenner is a transgender, who has obviously gone through extensive facial reconstruction and body sculpting. Evidence of this transformation was shown on the Vanity Fair magazine cover plastered on media outlets over the past week.
But is this man truly now a woman?
In my opinion, he is not in the sense of not having been born a female. And, I hold the same opinion for a woman who transitions to a man and calls herself "male." For me, a person's sex is the one he or she was born with, although I will concede they do not agree. That is their prerogative.
Lest you think this is transgender bashing, it is NOT.
Like many others, I agree that Jenner is entitled to live his life; granted he's had some uphill struggles — as have others in similar or differing situations. Life is not easy for those who "feel differently" or who have suffered with adversity; it comes in many forms from bullying to "body shaming" and much more..
This post is not aimed at judging anyone's actions.
However, I object to being bombarded by all forms of media concerning Jenner's very personal and now very public choice. Thanks to this over-extensive media blitz, is there anyone who doesn't know that Jenner will receive the Arthur Ashe Courage Award (no discussion on that decision). Also, I read that "fans will further understand and follow Caitlyn's new life when an 8-part E! docu-series airs in late late July." Do people really need/want to know all this?
Aren't there are so many more important issues throughout the world.
