Star Magazine Says Caitlyn Jenner Wants to Be Bruce Again, Other Gossip Sites Slam Story as ‘Vile Hoax’
Caitlyn Jenner has been at the center of what just might be the most bizarre news story of 2015. And it’s not her actual transition from Bruce to Caitlyn that’s bizarre. It’s the way the whole thing has played out in the public sphere.
Some news organizations treat her like she’s a national hero. Others question her motives. Some folks on social media call her brave and inspirational. Others hurl homophobic and transphobic slurs. Everything is black and white, and everyone’s opinion seems to offend somebody else.
Now Star magazine, which apparently just can’t get enough of this stuff, has gone and published a story claiming that Caitlyn wants to be Bruce again.
“Caitlyn wanted to be a woman her whole life, but now that it’s happened, she’s disappointed,” their story claims. “Caitlyn is starting to wonder if she hasn’t made a gigantic mistake.”
Oh wait, there’s more.
“Transitioning hasn’t given her the life she thought it would,” says Star’s so-called source. “She even told her kids: ‘I hate being a woman! I feel ugly, but as Bruce I used to be so handsome and happy.”
Of course, Jenner’s publicist says the story is total nonsense. It’s totally understandable that people would question Jenner’s motives given his affiliation with the Kardashians. But the reality is nobody “decides” to go from being a man to a woman for publicity. Jenner may have milked the situation, and she may be finding the backlash unpleasant, but she isn’t faking it.
Star magazine is just trying to upset as many people as possible, because when everybody is pissed off and yelling at each other, they make money.
My advice? Whatever your political or religious persuasion, don’t bite. Save your outrage.
