I’m also very easily bored!
I’m over it! I don’t care, and I’m sick and tired of seeing and hearing about His transition to Her new life. It’s his / her business and I don’t need to know about it, or for that matter want to know about it. Intellectually, I’m glad she is finding happiness and peace in her new life.
In my gut… well that’s another story.
Intellectually, I know Transgendered folks suffer because they feel like they’re in the wrong body. I know that sex reassignment is a radical and oftentimes last resort for these folks to find peace and happiness in their lives. I have compassion for them and am glad that medical science can give them relief and a shot at happiness.
The ones that confuse the hell out of me are the folks who go through all the surgery and then end up being in a same sex relationship. That really causes my brain to just blue screen.
Most of the folks who transition from one gender to the other do it quietly, methodically, and with a great deal of psychological support.
They’re very serious about what they’re doing and their choices are made in the privacy of their own lives.
The Jenner media circus has created a situation where I’m unable to avoid very distressing visualizations of surgical procedures.
Yeah, you really can’t un-see something. Unfortunately, I once looked up how the procedure is done.
As a result when the Jenner media circus comes on the TV or pops up in a news Item I’m turning the TV off or closing my web browser.
The trouble is, IT’S EVERYWHERE!
In my gut…
I’m totally creeped out!! I can’t not visualize it, I can’t un-see it. (There is a slightly positive side… I’m losing weight, because about the time my appetite returns the next news cycle hits.)
Please Jenner, You’ve successfully harnessed the Kardashian publicity machine, you’re on the cover of Vanity Fair, you’ve signed entertainment deals, kindly exit stage left. It’s past time for you to leave the spotlight.
If anything good has come from this circus it’s that you may have given me an appreciation of what PTSD may be like.
I wonder if I could get paid for my emotional distress?
Everyone else sues at the drop of a hat why shouldn’t I?
