In a previous article I wrote, “Bottom line, Bruce Jenner learned from being on the Kardashian reality show that if you want to make money, you need to be a woman and do something outlandish. This was the way for Jenner to cash in.”
Here’s what I think happened to Bruce Jenner. In 1976 he was at the top of the world after winning a gold medal in the decathlon at the 1976 Montreal Summer Olympic Games. He got his picture on a Wheaties box, made a lot of money, but lost a bit of self-authentication. He was emasculated on reality TV for the whole world to see.
After a few failed marriages, he ended up marrying into the Kardashian family that turned dysfunction, vanity, and narcissism into a gold mine. The Kardashian girls are worth millions based on their bodies and outlandish lifestyles.
For a world class athlete – the best in the world for a time – this was a huge personal insult considering that real talent was not being recognized but body morphology was. Jenner trained more than eight hours a day to excel in one of the most grueling physical contents in the world. A decathlete must be very good in ten track and field events, and compete against other superbly trained athletes over a two-day period. Competing in just one event at the Olympics can be physically and emotionally draining. Try ten of them. Compare that to breasts and butts.
The only thing that Kardashian girls had to do was wear tight clothes, put on makeup, look pretty for the cameras, say and do outlandish things, and the money started rolling in. Kim Kardashian has millions of followers.
It’s not that Bruce Jenner didn’t make money. He did. Lots of it. But the way his no-talent step daughters were raking in the cash had an effect on his psyche. He couldn’t compete as an athlete to show his self-worth. His glory days were long gone. But he could compete in a different venue.
Now we’re learning that Bruce could make a half billion dollars by turning himself into a fake woman.
“Now it’s the Kardashians who will have to keep up with Caitlyn [sic].
“The former [sic] Bruce Jenner’s debut on the Vanity Fair cover on Monday put the Olympic champ turned reality star turned transgender icon in a position to outearn her fellow clan members, experts said.
“‘She [sic] could become the wealthiest of them all,’ said Rob Shuter, host of VH1’s ‘The Gossip Table’ and former Dan Klores Communications employee. ‘If Bruce Jenner made $100 million in 65 years, if all the stars align, she [sic] could be worth over $500 million in the next five to 10 years.
“‘Caitlyn [sic] is going to be a pioneer,’ he added.’
It’s not about the money. It will be just like his decathlon days. He’ll be No. 1 again. Anybody else following Bruce in the sexual mutilation business will always be an also ran. Bruce will be the one with the perpetual gold medal.
Living with the Kardashians and seeing how they turned flesh into cash messed with Bruce Jenner’s mind. It affected his thinking processes. He lost a moral reference point. It’s easy to do today. There are no longer any moral absolutes. In effect, Bruce Jenner lost his mind and self-respect:
Dr. Paul R. McHugh, the former psychiatrist-in-chief for Johns Hopkins Hospital and its current Distinguished Service Professor of Psychiatry, said that transgenderism is a ‘mental disorder’ that merits treatment, that sex change is ‘biologically impossible,’ and that people who promote sexual reassignment surgery are collaborating with and promoting a mental disorder.
The best thing for Bruce Jenner to do is to get away from the Kardashians, enter the real world again, sit down with a Bible and take note of how God ordered the world before he does something really stupid from which there is no return.
Bruce Jenner is looking for validation in a world where many times the wrong things are valued.
