Wednesdays Question

questionIt’s Wednesday so that means it’s question time. It’s time to ponder and then answer just one question. Okay, you can add all you want as a reason for your answer too. We’d all like that.

Here’s this weeks question: There have been tons of press over Bruce Jenner’s becoming a woman. Many have said she’s a hero, more so than decorated military personnel in some cases. Is Caitlyn Jenner a hero or not?

No. I don’t feel she’s a hero. It did take a lot of courage for her to publicly do this, but a hero? No. This is a family that thrives on publicity. I do hope she’s happy with her decision.

    This goes on ever day and is never mentioned on the news for others. This story is for news and money. All of a sudden he/she has a new TV show. WOW! People are who they are and good for them but to make money and power, I'm sorry. That doesn't make it in my book. It's all about these Kardashian women. I just wish they would go away.
    Have a wonderful & beautiful Wednesday Sandee. See ya.

    I don't get the "hero" label either. I suppose it was brave in a sense to do what he/she did, especially because he/she is such a public figure, but to me a hero must involve doing something dangerous that saves the lives of other people. I don't believe it was just for publicity either but I don't see how it could have been avoided either with the media following that family around all the time. I don't get why people care about them or watch them all all!

    In my opinion, I say NO, this has nothing to do with being a hero, just personal preference that should not be in the news where there are more life threatening issues, more news worthy,like helping the homeless and starving children in America and welcoming our soldiers back home!

    Have a great week!

    I will never understand why people have to brag about doing something like he or she did..Who cares whether she or he is a she or a he. That is her own business, not mine.
    Cerrainly not a hero in my book. Just looking for attention.
    Sandee, you and Zane and Little Bit have a fantastic day.

    Quite frankly I don't think "she" is a hero. I think the whole Kardashian family is all about publicity and getting their names in newspapers, the internet etc.
    What people do in their private lives is just that-private. Whether it's their sexual lives or how one chooses to live (or die) and their actions do not do something to harm another. I wish that everyone would mind their own business and not dictate their beliefs on others.

    Not a hero. Bluntly speaking- I personally believe if God put you on Earth with a penis, you should be a man and accept that fact. But I am not judging him, just think it is sad really. Not a Kardashian fan! I do feel sorry for their brother but we don't know the real story behind of that either. They are all so fake.

  7. Jennifer Humphries says:

    No not a hero, brave for announcing and following through, but not someone who has risked their life to help others and save lives. I kind of feel sorry for him/her, she seems deeply troubled and it all just makes me feel very sad.

  8. BeadedTail says:

    No, not a hero but if she gives others courage to live their authentic lives then I suppose that's a good thing. I can't even begin to understand what it feels like to be in the wrong body but at least now it's a discussion for those that do thanks to the Kardashian publicity machine.

    Hope the heat there doesn't stick around too long! I am so not a fan of triple digits either. Cool scritches for Little Bit!

    Not a hero to me probably has made quite a bit of money out of it, over the years I have known 3 transgender 2 male to female and 1 female to male they didn't make a fuss they just got on with it.
    Some people would quite happily tell their story in the media or should I say their "journey" for the takings.

    Have a gendertasticday Sandee :-h

    No, I don't consider her a hero for trans-gendering… is that a vowel? She did manage to outdo the Kardashians. Have to give her credit for that. I'm waiting for the whole family to announce their one-way ticket to Mars 😉

  11. DrillerAA09 says:

    It is fair to say that I don't find Bruce/Caitlyn to be a hero. I don't understand how anyone becomes so disappointed in who they are and what they were created to be, that they come to the conclusion that gender change is going to make things better. Instead I see a poor, misguided soul that is hopelessly lost and confused in this life.

  12. messymimi says:

    Not a hero in the traditional sense. A courageous person to come out and be the voice of people who go through this, yes. There is a difference between being a hero and being a courageous person.

  13. Laika says:

    Mom's gossip magazines in Denmark have written all about it. Mom thinks he/she can do what he/she please. But think he/she will earn a little money publishing his photos.

    :-O from Laika & Vaks

  14. Catherine says:

    Dear Sandee, No, I don't think she is a hero; simply living her life in the spotlight and sharing her thoughts and trials through life publicly; though this does take courage to endure public scrutiny through this time. I too hope she is happy. xo Catherine
