Personally, I could care less about the idea of a sex change, it’s your life you should live it how you want. Bruce Jenner/ Caitlyn Jenner got a sex change to “prove” a point, but all I see out of it is publicity and money. He claims to Kim Kardashian he has wanted to be a girl since he was a young boy in the popular show The Kardashians. Michael Jackson did something very similar to Caitlyn: he changed his skin color because of a disease, he changed his nose, and made himself look very feminine. Unlike Caitlyn Jenner, he was judged harshly. Yes, Caitlyn got some mean feed back, but not as bad as Michael did a long time ago. Caitlyn was praised for it. People think it was a courageous act. She even got an award for it, it is called the Arthur Ashe Courage Award. The runner up was a man named Noah Galloway, who lost an arm and a leg in a bombing in Iraq. He now competes in crossfit events, runs marathons, and competed in the 58 hour death race. The fact that Caitlyn Jenner won this award vs Noah is astonishing to me. Publicity is what got Caitlyn Jenner the award,not the fact that he turned himself to a girl. Yes it was for a good cause as far as we know, but Noah fought for our country and truly is a courageous and an outstanding American. Caitlyn Jenner’s decision has also impacted everyone in positive way. Anyone who is feeling like he was/ is coming out and showing the real them, they are coming out unafraid and not caring what the world has to say about it, and I think that’s amazing. We should always be who we truly are no matter what.
