If I see that creepy Vanity Fair cover of Bruce Jenner come across my Facebook feed just one more time, I’m going to gouge out my eyeballs and bleach the sockets.
Ladies, please, if you ever again struggle with body image, just know that those stupid chick magazines you thumb through every day while nibbling arugula and baby carrots like some bulimic bunny, can, through the simple magic of $200,000 in plastic surgery and enough airbrushing to power a windmill farm, make a 65-year-old mentally ill man look, sort of, like a 35-year-old country club ninny. Brucie baby ain’t got nothin’ on you, sweetheart, I promise. It’s all fake as the rubber grapes on grandma’s centerpiece. You are you, he is he, and the cover models on your silly mags don’t look a stitch like that.
So, since it’s apparently a slow news day when the Islamic State announces its intention to slip nukes across Obama’s wide-open southern borders, and since America is singularly focused on one man’s sorry stab at genital alchemy, I thought I’d add some more bub to the hubbub.
First, some basic housekeeping – the obvious. Bruce Jenner remains a man in every cell of his body and every corner of his soul. It’s simple third-grade biology. “Caitlyn Jenner” is a figment of his imagination. “She” is every bit the lady that Johnny Depp is the pirate. Everyone tethered to reality knows this.
Still, in today’s America, it’s “The Emperor’s New Clothes” meets George Orwell. We must all pretend that a man in a dress who has some surgical work is magically a woman – a courageous “hero,” no less – or face the wrath of the “progressive” power set.
“It takes courage to share your story,” tweeted our social-engineer-in-chief after “Caitlyn’s” big reveal, while actual American hero Chris Kyle’s widowed bride is still waiting for some Twitter love from the sleazy Preezy of the United Steezy.
Bruce Jenner is worthy of pity and prayer, not adulation. Yet in a world that calls evil good and good evil, it is adulation he gets. It’s not my intention to single out Jenner – he’s done a capital job of that on his own – or to pick on him in the least. In fact, back in February I penned a heartfelt appeal to Bruce. He emailed me afterward (Bruce, my offer remains open).
Bruce Jenner is a big boy. He’s a former college football player and a Gold Medal Olympian. But the fact remains; he’s also a deeply disturbed man, both mentally, spiritually and, if he follows this self-destructive primrose path to its bitter end, physically.
Even so, the greater problem is that, beyond all this, Bruce, who, for some inexplicable reason, has achieved a position of profound influence in our culture, will, no doubt, take a multitude of equally disturbed folks down with him. The public train wreck that is his life represents a microcosm of everything wrong with America.
So where’s it all leading?
Which is exactly where those in rebellion against God want it to lead.
