And here he is transitioning to a delicious snack

Bruce Jenner reimagined as a Rice Krispies treat courtesy of Mister Krisp, who apparently does this sort of thing. He takes commissions.

I wasn’t going to do a Bruce Jenner thread. I find it grubby and sad. I’m all for giving the man some privacy to work through his…

Wait, what? The cover of Vanity Fair?

Well, shoot. Even then, I didn’t want to touch it until I was ‘invited’ to celebrate it — I said Celebrate. It. — by everybody from Rick Santorum to HotAir.


So, twelve hours of facial surgery, hormone treatment, the Vanity Fair hair and makeup team, celebrity photog Annie Leibovitz, and it still took a fuck-ton of Photoshopping to make him look…really creepy and wrong.

Oh, well. Let’s talk about Annie Leibovitz’ growing reputation for bad Photoshop.

To paraphrase Big Fur Hat, how is this any different from an anorexic girl looking into a mirror and seeing a fatty? We get her help. Bruce looks into the mirror, sees a woman, and we celebrate/coddle him. They’re both mental illness. Trannies have a suicide rate 29 times higher than the general population.

And apparently the UK wants to repeal the right of self-defense altogether:

“Whether it’s this detestable advice, police warning a woman not to display a knife in order to ward off intruders, warrantless firearm storage inspections, or desperate subjects being forced to defend their lives and property with cricket and baseball bats during riots, the UK government appears intent on wiping out any remaining vestiges of the traditional right to self-defense.”

Dumb, and impractical. Me, somebody breaks into my house in the middle of the night, I’m gonna shoot their ass. Period.

Um .. excuse me? Does that rice krispies treat have nuts in it?

What is it with men who want to dress up as old, ugly women?

And are some men actually attracted to other men who try to dress up as old, ugly women? *shiver* Now _that_ is creepy.

Be prepared for the inevitable “Caitlyn Jenner, out on the town, on the arm of a 20-something Gigolo” — or maybe even Justin Beiber. Would that make Jenner a cougar? Tom cat? Neutered Siamese? WTH?

It’s tough being a parent these days – there’s just so much weird shite you have to try to explain to the wee ones.

That’s old advice, mojo. Not that it isn’t still applicable. But you can’t, for example, carry a chair leg for self defense. If you bean somebody with it, you better have been on your way to get a chair repaired.

Gavin McInnes got ousted from Rooster, which he helped found, for making the perfectly valid point that all this unquestioning celebration of ‘transexuals’ is basically encouraging mentally-ill people to mutilate themselves. There is this ridiculous assumption that the truth of a matter is dependent on how fervently one believes in it, so if you really, really think you’re a woman, then you are a woman. This is no more true than being absolutely convinced you are Napoleon means you are Napoleon. In fact, in the latter case, you’re likely to end up in the funny farm.

Sweas: I know, and it pisses me off. You’d think the government would have more common sense. I blame Labour.

PS: I carried a knife all through high school. Those were “interesting times” in Cali. Stuck more than one orc that thought I looked like easy meat.

Nope. It bites.

I’m glad I’m not the only one who finds it creepy and wrong.

Ms. Leibovitz should feel relieved. I mean, this isn’t considered the worst photograph ever taken, That dubious honor belongs to….

At first I thought it was just ridiculous that he was saying he’s a lesbian trapped in a man’s body.

Then my nieces told me he was part of the Kardashian freakshow and I figured it all out.

It’s not just ridiculous, it’s ridiculous that people are buying into it.

I don’t think people are buying into it. The media is pushing it.

I’ve known two transgender men who became lesbians. One of them ran as a Republican, for an Assemblywoman seat here in Nevada. She was a firefighter in the Air Force.

Gender dysphoria is indeed a “mental illness”. But it’s neurological. Humans have gender identity wiring in the brain. In a very small number of people, the brain wiring doesn’t match the body. These people know quite well what their bodies are. But there is a conflicting signal in the brain that will not go away.

There is a related body-image disorder in which the sufferer feels that a limb is is not part of him. Neurologists recently identified the part of the brain which holds a body image; and in these people the “alien” body part is missing from that image.

There is also a very small number of people who are physically gender-ambiguous, for instance XY males with androgen insensitivity syndrome, who develop a completely female external appearance.

However, at this time, these actual cases of transgenderism or intersexedness are massively outnumbered by fetishists and deviance-embracing “rebels”, producing the freak show.

I have personally encountered five MtF transsexuals. Only one of them was even close to convincing; that one definitely fell into the “uncanny valley”. (One is a billionaire – Jennifer (née James) Pritzker, Lt Col (ret) ANG, patron of the Pritzker Military Library and Museum, which I attended many events at.)

. . . What is it with men who want to dress up as old, ugly women? . . .
In Denver I knew a guy, apparently perfectly straight, who liked dressing up in women’s clothes and going out — not to bars, but to coffee shops. He wore a wig but no makeup. Worked as a locksmith, drove a small SUV, and was a cool guy. He and I never talked about it, but one of his friends shrugged and said, “He’s just getting in touch with his feminine side.”

At the time I thought there were probably easier ways than that to get in touch with one’s feminine side. A stroll down any aisle in a Bed, Bath, and Beyond would do it.

Considering the Kardashian’s Evil Klown show, one has to wonder if perhaps the Ottoman Turks had a point…

I wonder if transwomen still have to get their prostates checked.
