I read those words in an article about Bruce Jenner and how there's a bit of a backlash brewing as he positions himself as the poster boy for tolerance towards crossdressers and transgenders.
The site is one of those snarky celeb blogs featuring posts mostly by a gay man (who admits he gets all his news from MSNBC because Chris Hayes and Rachel Maddow are like totally the best), but also a bi or lesbian female. In their discussion about the second episode in Jenner's famewhore series, they call Jenner out on his "privilege" -- "Caitlyn-as-Bruce had lived in a bubble of privilege as a wealthy white man, privilege as a celebrity, privilege as a Republican".
Wow. What a pile of whiny steaming excrement!
Let's take a look at this for a moment. Why was Jenner a "wealthy white man?" Because he was an Olympic Gold medal winner. He wasn't given that. He actually built that. Through years of hard work and dedication and then competition against the best athletes in the world. He won the Gold medal in the Olympic games earning the unofficial title as "World's Greatest Athlete."
And he got endorsements and ad campaigns and television spots and everything else that comes along with that earned fame. I don't hear these bloggers calling Tiger Woods out on his privilege. Or Michael Jordan. Or Serena Williams.
And his privilege as a celebrity? Well, who the f*ck made him a celebrity? All you bloggers and the magazines and scandal rags that turn every trip of Jenner's taking out the garbage into a front page story. If you're so pissed about him being a celebrity, maybe you shouldn't waste gigabytes of webspace talking about every minute detail of his life! sheesh
And finally -- privilege as a Republican. ?!?!?! What the f*ck does that even mean? Is he getting some pass or favor because of his voter registration? Honestly. These whiny lefties just can't stop trying to fill the heads of their low information readers with every bit of nonsensical propaganda at every turn.
I have to admit a certain sense of evil glee at watching the left turn itself inside out over Jenner. When he initially came out as a . . . whatever the f*ck he is, they were chortling that Republicans would be besides themselves trying to figure out what to do with him. Problem is, Republicans aren't the party of exclusion they want the masses to believe we are. We may not agree with what Jenner is doing to himself, but he's welcome with us. Weirdness and all.
But the left can't stand the fact that he's got conservative principles, and they're trying to tear him down while holding him up as some sort of mis-gendered icon. And of course the gay community is furious that he's not going full gay. And feminists don't like the fact that he's not a real woman, even if he's a lesbian . . . sort of . . . you know what I mean.
So they're trying to slam him while simultaneously laud him. It's delightful to watch and the only reason I'm paying any attention to this trainwreck of a human being.
And because I have a policy here of not posting pictures of that tranny, here's some pics of real biological woman Alyssa Milano from way back. And yes, I'm on a bit of a retro kick this week, don't know why, but . . .
