Local and national media love stories like this. It's purely tabloid journalism and draws a huge audience which in turn revs up advertising income. Just ignore it if you want to.

That's irrelevant, since he's not interested in men. You're confusing gender identity and sexual orientation. Very separate, different issues.

Then let me add I doubt there will be too many women who will want to kiss him. He will never be seen as a woman. Only a frankensteined tranny.

I'm tired of hearing about him. This simply isn't real news, it's tabloidism. The news media in the USA is nothing but a joke these days.

And yet others who have been through reassignment surgery have managed to find mates. Not everyone is as closed off as you seem to be.

There is a lot of gay control of television, so that is why they a are using Jenner to "normalize" sex changing. I disagree with PP who says "it takes a lot of courage ... to go public." Jenner has no choice - he's already public. Second he becomes the idol posterboy once again - this time from the gay community rather than the sports world. Just like the whole Kardashian clan, he is a publicity sl*t.

I don't really understand the whole sex change thing anyways. He will never be considered a woman by anybody. Just a transsexual. I doubt there are too many guys on this forum who will want to kiss him just cuz he cuts off his stuff and gets boob and butt implants.

My advice - perhaps he ought to just get his head straightened out instead of cutting of his body parts.
First, nobody is asking your opinion about the process, just a little compassion for someone who is going through it. Second, how you equate sex change with homosexuality is beyond me. They are two separate things and issues....

Apotemnophilia is a condition that compels people to cut off their own arms, legs and other body parts in order to feel better about themselves. We all know that that's crazy thinking. We don't accept it. We don't encourage those who seek this "cure" for themselves.

Why is the mutilation of a penis or vagina something to brag about? Why does the gay community get behind this mutilation, supporting it, cheering it on, while condemning and ridiculing those who know that it is beyond sick?
What better way to make others accept your own sickness than to make that sickness normal and acceptable.

Speak for yourself. Sheesh.

I hope he's all over the media 24/7, just to annoy you.

My husband's niece is transitioning. I hope Bruce sheds some light and compassion around this subject, and that people like you will one day understand that others don't deserve this kind of nasty judgment purely because they have a life that you don't get. It must be a freakin nightmare to live a closeted life, and I applaud the bravery it takes for them to be free.

My niece in law is a woman to me. I can't say on this forum what I think of you, though. It wouldn't be polite.

I wholeheartedly agree. While I agree the whole media circus surrounding this family including the TV show and everything is sensationalism, what Bruce is doing is a manifestation of human sexuality that few understand except within the psychiatric community and those who study human sexuality and it's diversity. Transgender, homosexual and bisexual people and those with gender identity issues have enough to deal with without all the fear mongering, hate and prejudice. Sexuality is largely a function of our brains and hormones. Things largely already programmed into individuals in a unique way for everybody. Those uninformed about such issues need to read up on things before casting judgment fueled by idiotic nonsense.

  3. It's not just a story on Channel 7 in Los Angeles. It's a national story. It's being followed not just by Democrats (though I'm not sure why you feel you have to make this a partisan issue). For the record, Bruce Jenner is a Republican.
lol..... i think the op might be trolling, but it's hard to tell
