Bruce Jenner Celebrates Diversity… Announces He Will Now Go By Name “Caitlyn” In Vanity Fair

Bruce Jenner made his debut as a transgender woman in a va-va-voom cover for the July issue of Vanity Fair.

“Call me Caitlyn,” declares a headline with her photo in a strapless corset, legs crossed, sitting on a stool. The image was shot by famed celeb photographer Annie Leibovitz. Prior to the unveiling of Caitlyn, Jenner had said he prefers the pronoun “he,” but contributing editor Buzz Bissinger, who wrote the accompanying story, refers to “she.”

According to Vanity Fair, which took to Twitter with the cover Monday, Jenner spoke emotionally to the magazine about the gender journey: “If I was lying on my deathbed and I had kept this secret and never ever did anything about it, I would be lying there saying, ‘You just blew your entire life.’”

  1. According to the article, Bruce had a lot to hide, but “Caitlyn has nothing to hide.” Ummmmm. Perhaps he feels that way, but how do you write that kind of line with a straight face? The list of things he would have to choose to “hide” or “disclose” to some guy “she” just met at a bar is truly epic. I think those XY chromosomes you’re still carrying around are being hid with a great deal of effort and medical cunning, Caitlyn.

    I’m actually pretty sympathetic to the gender-confused, like Bruce. I’ve known a couple people who struggled with it, and I’ve never condemned anybody. But how do you tell a friend that you support them doing something like this to themselves? Nobody gets to choose what sex they are, and nobody gets to decide what lifestyle will make them happy. That’s GIVEN to you. Internal conflict is NOT given to you. That, you provide yourself.

    Everybody gets voices in their heads telling them they “need” this or that to be happy. Sometimes the temptation is very strong, but the source must be considered. How many of us have been told destructive things by that voice? Lots. How many guys have been told by that voice that “the stripper over there really likes you and the money has nothing to do with it?” Should you go believe that voice? Hell no. Should you go marry that stripper overnight and give her an extra key to the Lambo right away? Well, that depends. I mean, what are Lambos for except for your busty stripper girlfriend to go buy heroin in so that you end up in jail and eventually turn your life around. Circle of life. 😉

    The lie that we’re expected to believe here is that Bruce’s voice comes from God. That God has been telling him for 50 years that he totally f&#$ed up. “Look, Bruce, I’m really sorry, but Raphael is a huge joker and he mixed up your files and we gave you a dick by mistake. You were really meant to have a vagina and be a slutty cover model. Do you think you can earn enough money to get this medically corrected so you can have a shot at being happy? I apologize, but you may need to marry into the Kardashian family to make it happen. Sorry about that.”


  2. Also, the whole thing is just a grammar mistake. The VF headline was supposed to read: “Call Me, Caitlyn.” Bruce was just hitting on the photographer. (Annie goes by Caitlyn sometimes.) The magazine totally screwed that all up.

    From what I understand a lot of trannies get silicone implants,etc. but don’t go “all the way.”I believe the procedure is called cutadickfromme.

    OK,that’s it.I’m going to Hell.

    glad you cleared that up.

    I agree with you, Grunt, that sometimes we just obsess ourselves into oblivion in these self-absorbed times. I do have some level of empathy for the struggle – I really do. But at the same time, I have been wondering what in the name of Sam Hill the medical community has been doing studying up on these operations and hormones to accomplish this sort of thing, when there is still cancer and diabetes to be cured. And why wouldn’t the struggling transgender want to just cross dress until these more urgent breakthroughs are made? I would much rather see resources go toward a cure for Chrissy. In the meantime, get a padded bra like I do!


  7. I really blame the medical community for this– they ought to know better. It seems to me, that doing this sort of surgery is like doing weight-loss surgery on an anorexic. You’re just feeding into their mental/emotional/ spiritual problems, and making them worse.

    Johns Hopkins, which pioneered this sort of thing, doesn’t do it any more. They find that this surgery doesn’t “fix” people– you get the same people coming in to be “switched back”, because no surgery will ever make right what’s “wrong”. They stopped because this back and forth was so common, and such a problem.


    • Excellent point about the back-and-forth, Zoph. And Ting also mentioned that above. It seems the easiest thing it the world, to me, if I were a surgeon, to point to my Hippocratic Oath which says “First, do no harm…”, and refuse to alter someone’s innate, healthy physical makeup because of an internal struggle. Why don’t they do that more often? Many do, I suppose. The rest are unethical. That’s probably why Valerie Jarrett praises them.

      Zoph! Off topic, but I saw the most amazing documentary that you might really appreciate! It’s called Sagrada, and it’s on Net-Flix right now. It’s about the still-unfinished cathedral in Barcelona that’s been under construction for over 100 years, and it’s chief sculptor is a Japanese Buddhist-turned-Catholic. He does the interview in Italian, which is fun(a Japanese Michaelangelo?), and he’s a pretty amazing guy. Cool stuff!
