Former Olympian and ex-husband of the Kardashian's mom Kris, Bruce Jenner has been all over the news thus far in 2015. He announced he was having a sex change and even scored an exclusive 20/20 interview with Diane Sawyer.
Jenner, married three times to women, and in his golden years, has literally had a mid-life crisis and a second act all in one by deciding to be a woman. Many are calling him crazy (nevermind the fact he says he's a Republican) , the gay community is calling him brave, the Christian community believes he's devilish.
Myself, I have my own views as always.
Jenner rose to Olympic fame in the 70s and the 80s, appearing on Sports Illustrated and Wheaties boxes. He was on top of the world. Then he was irrelevant. His fame and much of his money ran out. He then married the former Kris Kardashian, whose late husband was part of OJ Simpson's legal dream team. Kim's sex tape leaked, and the Kardashians get their own reality show. All of a sudden, Bruce is back in the spotlight.
Well back is more appropriate. He was hugely ignored and cast aside by his new family. It seemed the only one to take him seriously was his biological daughter, and arguably the one with the most sense in the household. Kris and Bruce then split. Suddenly, Bruce was back at square one, again.
Basically, he loves the attention and spotlight. Many people can't get enough of it. Now he's drowning in it, especially from the gay and transgender communities. There are approximately 700,000 transgender ("trannies") in the U.S. currently. It has been said that Bruce has wanted this for decades and what perfect timing.
People thought the Kardashians were attention whores (or simply whores). To me, it appears Bruce is the one that wants all of the spotlight. He definitely is confused and has internal issues and needs help for more than his sexuality.
So as we pray for many things (peace in Baltimore, less rain, and for Mayweather to win), we need to pray for Jenner. He clearly needs help, not to be made a media spectacle. He is asking for it, but it doesn't mean he should receive it. Something is definitely wrong here, and it's not just Bruce Jenner.
Do you agree with Bruce Jenner's decision? Either way, do you think it's a cry for help or attention?
