The world is all abuzz with the Vanity Fair issue of "Call Me Caitlyn", where Bruce Jenner has his photo debut as a transgender woman. The entire fiasco is sad. He is a sick man and we should pray for him. Pray for all of them. Pray that they find peace through the love of Jesus Christ. They have no peace, not within themselves and not without.
Every transgender will always be what they were born as, either man or woman. To say that they are a man trapped in a woman's body or vice versa is to say that God made a mistake. Let me be perfectly clear... God does NOT make mistakes. Period. All the turmoil Bruce is going through and coming out as a "woman" amounts to nothing; it is vanity.
Think of it this way. If in 1 or 2 thousand years, some archaeologist comes along and finds his grave. Aside from a couple of perky saline pouches sitting on top of his rib cage, the bones will be those of a man. History will know him as a man, not a woman. My bones will be female. If his body were found in the woods and forensics were needed to determine gender, it would be male. No exceptions.
Bruce and every other transgender can call themselves whatever they wish but the facts are the facts. A man is a man and a woman is a woman. In the end, no one will care and it will all be for nothing.
As for the petition to strip Jenner of his Olympic medals, I do not agree with that. He earned every single one of them and he was not pretending to be a woman in disguise when he got them. Let him have them. Perhaps he could be buried with them. Then maybe those archaeologists that find his male bones someday will be able to say, "Here lies Bruce Jenner. An Olympic Decathlon Champion." Let the rest of his story fade. It won't matter in the end.
