So unless you’re living under a rock, you know about the Diane Sawyer interview with Bruce Jenner last night. Once a masculine icon for all young boys, Bruce has decided to go through the transition of horomone replacement therapy in order to become a “woman.” He’s still undecided on whether he’ll castrate himself just yet. Make no mistake, the interview was designed to be a big push to normalize and create visibility for the transgender community. It was a two hour long interview, so a lot was discussed. He discussed struggling with this his whole life, he discussed once growing man-boobs, and how he’s actually straight! Yes, Bruce Jenner wants to transition not only into a woman… but to a lesbian woman. Get your head around that one. None of this phased Diane Sawyer however. The one moment that shocked her, beyond belief, was captured below.
…Bruce Jenner is a Republican! Diane Sawyer was so shocked, she looked at Bruce like a “freak.” Bruce was uncomfortable enough to even cut the tension with a joke…
Is that bad? … I believe in the constitution.
Yes folks, in the year 2015, it is more shocking, more offensive to be a Republican… than it is to mutilate your genitals and “change your gender.”
It may seem trivial, but this is a moment that you’ll remember for the rest of your lives. You’ll be telling your kids about this special, when Bruce Jenner came out, when the whole world “called him a hero of humanity”, when the whole world decided that all genders, preferences and lifestyles became interchangeable… and that you became society’s “freaks.”
The only counter-culture left is that of Conservatism. Welcome, freaks, this is going to be a bumpy ride.
