Changing Your Sex is Not an Award (Self Sacrifice is the True Hero)

Ok, I tried to keep quiet about Bruce Jenner’s gender change, because as a Christian it is not my right to judge his life.  I have not walked in his privileged shoes nor do I understand his personal issues. But I can not keep quiet when it comes to awarding someone for a self-serving act and not a self-sacrificing one.

I do not care if Mr. Jenner wants to be a monkey and have a tail installed on his rear-end.  Instead I find myself a little angry though that he can call himself a woman! And even more angrier that he would receive an award for it.

Until Bruce Jenner has had his penis removed and a cavern inserted with all the amenities, he is not a woman.  Until he knows the pain, for 70% of his life, of having a period every month, he is not a woman. Until he knows what it is like to carry a child in your womb, to lose a child from your womb, or to not be able to have a child in your womb; he is not a woman. Until he has the raging hormones of menopause and hot flashes that would turn a city to ashes; he is not a woman.

There is more to being a woman than to have a plastic surgeon turn you into one of the Stepford wives. There is more to being a woman than to have a hair stylist, a makeup artist, and the right lighting to prepare you for a day. There is more to being a woman, than a celebrity with all the money you could ever want and a lifestyle of dreams. And since when was changing from male to female an award-winning event?  At least not in my Olympics.

If you want to know a real woman…

Just ask the single mother, who is working two jobs, juggling the kids and their activities; and at the end of the day can’t keep the electricity on in their house!  Or the married mother, working side by side with her husband to give their children the American dream.  Or the single working woman, excelling in her job, paving the way for other women.

Or better yet Mr. Jenner, ask our military women, who have lost their lives, limbs, and future securing this country so you can have your plastic surgeon; instead of an execution, like other countries do. These real women would love to have a plastic surgeon put them back together, except the cost is more than their disability can afford. And I am sure they would love an award for being only a woman.

America, you amaze me. Just when I thought things could not get more absurd or sink any lower…they do. You now want to give an award to a self-serving, ego maniac, spot light grabbing individual.  In case you did not know it, a trip to the plastic surgeon and hormone specialist does not make you a hero.  I feel pity for Mr. Jenner and his life. I feel pity for his family. But I do not feel that he deserves an award.

Just so you do know, allow me to list a few people who do deserve awards.

These are SELF SACRIFICING individuals.

The firemen, fire-women, policemen, police women; who rushed into the Twin Towers as they were falling down.

Our military men and women who put their lives on the line everyday so we can live freely and choose to be a man or a woman.

Our Government servants, fire, police, medical personnel, and those who work behind them (dispatchers, secretaries, assistants, janitors), dealing every day with a hostile public.

Real religious men and women feeding our poor, aiding our elderly, and praying for a better world.

Teachers who aren’t paid enough to buy groceries for their own families. Yet still educating a group a disrespectful, spoiled brats who try to ruin education for everyone else.

America, if you want a hero, please don’t look to Hollywood!

And Mr. Jenner… I know you will prostitute your sex change for all of the money that can be squeezed out of it, but please don’t stain this country by accepting an award. As-a-matter-of-fact, I think you should return any accolades you received from your Olympic career. Because as you say, you are a woman, and a man named Bruce Jenner won them!
