What Really Fascinates Me About Caitlyn Jenner

I admit it, I caught the final glimpses of Bruce Jenner. I sat down and watched his 20/20 interview with Diane Sawyer. He came across as a very personable and eccentric guy. I got an extra dose of him when Sidney convinced me to watch “The Kardashians” for the first time in my life. We watched the two episodes that dealt with how Bruce’s family was handling his decision. Once again he seemed like a super nice guy. Well, he is not a {super nice} guy anymore.

The Vanity Fair cover blazed across social media like wildfire. We have all probably heard the same cliché punchlines hundreds of times by now. I am not writing this blog post tonight to make fun of Caitlyn Jenner. I am not writing it to question or condemn Ms. Jenner either. Rather, I am writing this post to actually marvel at modern surgical procedures.

This image of Caitlyn Jenner created quite the buzz today.

In my mind, I am always amazed that a person can be a man and completely transform to a woman. I feel the same way about a woman completely morphing into a man. I am saying this in a strictly transformation sense. I mean holy cow, doctors are incredibly good. To sit back for a moment and take in the fact that we have medical professionals who are skilled enough to legitimately turn a man into a woman is pretty crazy. I wonder if these doctors thought to themselves in their toddler days, “Hey, I am going to grow up and develop the skill where I can change the sex of people.”

From the completely objective view, the capability of anyone being able to do this is fascinating. For someone like me who knows about as much about medicine/surgery as I do about Khloe Kardashian, it almost seems to me like magic. People should not be able to just go from a boy to a girl or from a girl to a boy (saying this in a bewilderment state, not in a condemning state).

I think the Jenner saga blew my mind even more. When I saw him just a short time ago on 20/20 and on his reality show, he had female characteristics but was still very much a man to me. Then, seemingly at the snap of the fingers, she is now a full-fledged woman. Jenner seemed to go through a door in one condition and then walked out in a whole different one. When Jenner told Sawyer that the next time he would give an interview would be when he was a woman I was expecting that date to be a couple years down the road. I had no idea it would happen so fast. Absolute craziness.

Human advancements in medicine/surgery are absolutely crazy. No matter what way you lean in all of this, and I am keeping my own mouth shut, you can’t help but admit that. It makes you wonder what the next major transformation procedure will be. Don’t Blink.

  1. You also have to take into consideration how much makeup artists, hairdressers and stylists can accomplish before you even get to the topic of professional photographers and Photoshop. I mean, just look at some of the truly gorgeous drag queens of the world.

    For the record, those aren’t real breasts. It takes work, but men have been accomplishing that for ages…https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=oca-4BXJCp4

    • Really good point about his stylists and Photoshop. I am kind of ashamed of myself for not thinking more about that before I wrote (my fascination with the whole ability to go from one sex to another is still unfazed though).

      But about the breasts….do you mean they are totally not real as in a complete illusion like in that video you linked to? Or do you mean he just paid a lot of money for implants?

  2. Personally I agree about the wonders of modern medicine, just as an example a woman in my church that is in her 80’s had a complete restructured surgery of her carotid artery five days later she was back at church, walking with a cane and the scar was two inches long. The abilities of the medical community, either through cosmetic or medicinal surgery are amazing.

    Also the biggest surprise when I saw this magazine cover is that her name begins with a C and not a K, like the rest of the Kardashian/Jenner family.
