I understand, life is a competition and to be successful you must participate, you must compete to the best of your ability. Intelligence, athleticism, age, gender every facet of our being can be used in our favor or against us. From an early age, girls compete for popularity, maturity both physically and mentally and yes even beauty. So many young women struggle under the pressure, the competition that might very well lead to success or crippling failure. Society expect this, nay, demands this and so women compete.
Now, as a mature woman, one who has competed and came up lacking in beauty, athleticism and superior intellect, who, dare I say is just average, now I am presented with the newest enigma society has unleashed.
Bruce 'yes damn it ' Bruce Jenner has rolled out his feminine side for all the world to see and be amazed at. I will be the first to complement the medical or is it magical arts that transformed this man into what looks like a woman.
So what, and that is a big so what, has this to do with the world? Am I now expected to compete with little Brucie for the right to use the woman's rest room, the changing rooms at the mall? Will I have to rummage past the new s/he bra and pantie set to find my size?
I have had enough, HE will never be a woman, HE never was a woman and I don't care what anyone says, HE will never know what it is to be a WOMAN.
Listen up world, I will not play your game, I will not compete with this abomination, I will not call HIM a she, her, Ms., Mrs. or any of that placating garbage. I will not participate in this mockery of all that is feminine.
I have had enough.
