There’s a petition going around to strip Bruce Jenner of all Olympic medals, what with Bruce actually being Caitlyn and all. (Why change the name? I know a woman named George–why not Bruce?)
Take medals away? Seems to me it should be the opposite. If Bruce felt he was a woman, and set records in sports where usually men get the faster time, then shouldn’t he (or she, whatever) actually get an extra special medal? Like … the platinum? Or the diamond medal? Diamonds are a girl’s best friend.
If the medals should be taken away for anything, it should be for dumbing down America through participation in reality TV.
The big question is: Why do we care? As long as it’s not being funded by taxpayers, let Bruce Jenner turn himself into a girl, a gorilla, a lemur, whatever. There are way worse problems in the world, such as ISIS, Congress … the other female Kardashians.
