“But I like to imagine a day when moms and dads counsel their girls and boys: ‘Be more like Caitlyn Jenner,’” - Sally Kohn.
So anyway. I read somewhere Clint Eastwood may be in trouble for a mild reference to 'Caitlyn somebody...' as a former star athlete. Sounds fine to me.
I think the funniest punch-line I heard came shortly after Jenner announced his transition and ended up in a serious car accident. A guy commented on the story saying something like, "Well he must be a woman, he sure drives like one." Ba dum chhh!
See, that's old fashioned stand up.
Inappropriate though it is.
I'm against it! What?
However, the funniest thing I read on the Jenner transition is from Sally Kohn.
Kohn wrote on Jenner’s story – from a mom’s perspective. “As a mom, I worry about the real-life Barbie doll hyper-sexualization projected by the Kardashian women,” she wrote. “Please oh please don't let my little girl see Kim Kardashian's airbrush-enhanced image and believe that is the feminine ideal.”
“As a feminist,” Kohn wrote, “I'm encouraged by the prospect that a transwoman may be either accidentally or quite deliberately subverting that trend, for the benefit of all women.”
“She has embodied a model of femininity that departs from the more-is-more overtly sexy model embraced by the rest of her Kardashian klan,” Kohn wrote. “And for this we should also be thankful.” - Finish reading here.
Such deadpan humor.
