I really do try not to get too wrapped up in all the hype of major news stories - or anything controversial. I have my opinions on it, sure, but that doesn't mean I need to be blasting them all over my blog or drowning out others at the office to share my political views.
You won't see me on here ranting about the run for the White House nor will you see me scrutinizing all the race riots and cop killings, etc.
However, one thing near and dear to my heart (for whatever reason) are the rights of gays. (And all the other LGBTetc. community.) And with Bruce Jenner's transition to a woman being all over everywhere this week, it has definitely been a hot button topic.
A topic I have managed to keep my mouth closed about.
Why? Because I've had to. But this morning, I just had to get it out. Just for a second.
I think if I hear the words "gross" or "disgusting" or "disturbing" about the entire transition one more time at work, I might just lose it.
These particular haters preach their Bible and shout down from their moral high horse. They judge others they don't know, over situations they cannot even begin to possibly fathom. They make Facebook posts about how Caitlyn isn't brave for doing this, soldiers are brave. I'm pretty confident that the general consensus in the world isn't that she is more brave than a soldier. However, courage can come in lots of different forms.
And while I am a fan of the Duggar family, and haven't quite 100% decided how I feel about all of the allegations swirling around them right now, I have yet to hear one of my hardcore Christian coworkers comment on that.
I'm sorry, but I'm certain that in the grand scheme of life mistakes, inappropriately touching a child is much more "gross" and "disgusting" and "disturbing" than Caitlyn Jenner.
P.S. Have you SEEN Caitlyn in that photo in Vanity Fair in the car with the red dress on in the car? Hot mama!!! Puff even made a comment that he hopes I can get back into "Bruce shape" after the baby. Only I would take that as a compliment!
