Dear Bruce:

Welcome to the sisterhood.  We warmly welcome you.  But, as a new member to our sacred sorority, I’d like to offer you some bits of womanly wisdom before you make the big transition.  See Bruce, being a woman is more than fancy makeup, sculpted cheekbones and surgically given cleavage. Some of our sisters, too many, have lost their cleavage to breast cancer.  Actually, being a woman means that you will always worry about breast cancer striking.  You’ll worry about losing breasts that once nourished beautiful children and tantalized eager partners.

Bruce, in some countries, being a young woman means having your genitals forcibly mutilated and not in a sterile operating room where you will choose to have yours mutilated.

Being a woman means feeling new life grow and blossom inside our wonderfully made bodies and for some of our sisters, wondering why infertility has robbed them of that miracle.

Being a woman means feeling the conflict of choosing between being a working Mom or staying at home and feeling pressured from both factions of our sisterhood.

Being a woman means that around my age you’ll inevitably wake up drenched in sweat due to menopause.  So you see, being a woman isn’t merely about socially constructed gender roles.

Purposely, we are more than skin deep caricatures of overly made up doll babies in tight corsets.  We are uniquely and beautifully made creatures.

So Bruce, I’ll call you Ma’am all day long, because I’m polite like that.  However, until you experience the pain of an ovarian cyst or the joy of a clean mammogram, please don’t expect us to fully accept you.

Girls are funny that way.

Just wait until Will gets a few shots of Caitlyn in high heels.

zzzzzzzzzzzzz…… I’ve seen dozens of commentaries in my FB feed saying pretty much the same thing. We get it already.

Ms. Falise:
Something tells me “he/she/it” don’t care whether “he/she/it” is accepted by females or not.
Whatever’s in “his/her/it’s” head is all that matters to “him/her/it”
BTW: that photo of “him/her/it” wigs me out!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!
I remember when he did the Wheaties commericals and had his picture on the box. I also remember my wife telling me she had a crush on “him” back then…”all for naught now” she said when this broke out.

Trolling Trans June 5, 2015 at 12:43 pm

Trans people hate being referred to as “it” so it is a good way to troll them. Personally I don’t care if they want to be called him or her as long as it isn’t some stupid baloney like xym or xyr. If you want that I’m calling you an “it” to piss you off for sure.

“Bruce, in some countries, being a young woman means having your genitals forcibly mutilated..”
And you actually paid thousands of dollars to have that done to you.
Will people just let this episode of confused gender assignment go and get back to higher taxes, corrupt politicians, under-performing schools, and other general nonsense. This gender modification has happened many times before, will happen many more times in the future. Jenner gets all the publicity because he was a famous male athlete, had a TV show(which I never watched), and is a member of a highly dysfunctional family.
I am sure there are many males in this country who have undergone the same procedure and are allowed to lead their lives without all the hoopla.
Everyone, please, just let it go.

Wow, I have personally known several transgenders in my personal life, and trust me, they would love to fear breast cancer, and they would gladly take the ovarian cyst if it meant it would make them a woman. Until you know what it’s like to feel like you are trapped inside the wrong body and you have the fear of public shaming and rejection not only from all of society but especially from your family if you attempted the slightest change towards the real you, then maybe you shouldn’t rant about something you do not understand. There are way too many people passing judgement on this who have never been exposed to anyone in their personal life who have been through these trials. Perhaps if you have sat through support group meeting for a few years like I have, and listen to their stories with open eyes and an open heart, your perspective would be differant. My 2 cents

I bet there are thousands of children that died of a terrible disease that would’ve happily taken misfortune you speak of.

Mike at the Beach June 5, 2015 at 3:31 pm

Bingo. First world problems, or (for the less politically correct among us), white people problems…

The only acceptable outcome from this freak would be it eating a bullet.

He is one of those that needs to pay higher taxes. More money than sense. Why would anyone care.

euwe max June 5, 2015 at 8:54 pm

the idle rich.

euwe max June 5, 2015 at 8:55 pm

why so serious?

SYNTwist June 6, 2015 at 8:26 pm

I disagree that is the only acceptable outcome, but I do think he might find it hard to live with his decision and that be a possible outcome. I cannot begin to fathom why someone might do that to themselves. I don’t like looking at the pictures, because what I feel is pity for him. I think he will be filled with regret. It’s his life to live, but the rest of us are not required to embrace or associate. I do hope he has a strong network of family friends, because the world is going to swallow him. I think it already has.

Does she wear the same size heels as you? Buy the last Birkin bag you wanted? Otherwise, how does it affect your life in any way?

Dean June 9, 2015 at 5:49 am

I’m the mother of a funny, smart, kind preadolescent child who has suffered from gender dysphoria for the last 3 years. I don’t know what caused it, and I don’t know what’s going to happen. I take her to the best doctors I can get. We are southern fundamentalist Christians who go to church regularly and talk about God throughout our week. My child needs constant reassurance that I still love her and that I will stand by her and that she’s not going to hell. I reassure her. She also has a lot of questions that frankly I don’t know the answers to. I do the best I can.

My biggest fear about her future is that maybe it’s going to be filled with a lifetime of comments like the one above, from people calling her it and encouraging her to kill herself and maybe attempting to do it for her. I’m scared enough to cry about it pretty frequently.

I think my question for you is, how does it feel to be someone else’s nightmare? You good with it?

euwe max June 5, 2015 at 8:54 pm

he should take a pill that gives him cramps every month.

Mike at the Beach June 5, 2015 at 9:48 pm

I know I’ll get beat up, but I must state the opposite. “She” HAS A FUCKING PENIS! No vagina. It is not rude to refer to someone with a penis as “he.” Nitwittery. I know every generation says this, but surely our civilization won’t make it much longer… ;-)

Beartrkkr June 5, 2015 at 9:59 pm

He needs nice saggy breasts to match his age…

Still waiting to see if he gets his Jennertalia chopped off, then I’ll think he’s serious…

Allicat June 5, 2015 at 10:20 pm

Maybe “girls” are funny that way but I’m a woman, and I have no problem accepting Caitlyn.

staffer June 5, 2015 at 11:18 pm

Lindsey should call on Caitlyn for FLOTUS. Should work well.

Lenny Musso June 6, 2015 at 3:30 pm

I’m against this particular perversion but I LOVE the fact that it is the fascist federal government promoting and, in many cases, PAYING for such transitions. What the fascist state gives, it can also (eventually) take away and persecute. HAIL VICTORY! (Or “VICTORIA” as the case may be.)

KosherGingerSnap June 7, 2015 at 11:24 am

You mean “Heil Victory?” You have a symbol of the third Reich next to your name. I’m not trying to get personal… But it’s hard to take a perspective seriously with all that going on.

I am certain Bruce was able to pay for his transition to Caitlyn. It’s a shame this has such an impact on your life and pursuit of happiness.

Lenny Musso June 7, 2015 at 5:58 pm

I’m not a Nazi, I’m a fascist. And that’s not a symbol from the Third Reich.

Mguzman June 9, 2015 at 12:41 pm

Old Brucey can play dress up but fact is he will never be a female as he was born a he so will always be a he regardless….I personally will never accept him as a she and that is my choice…..not a hater just believe in keeping it real!!!!
