Using something like the Kardashian craze as a reminder that everything happens for a reason seems frivolous and silly. But there is a reason. There is always a reason.
The greatest human athlete of our time told the world that she is transgender. It took her her entire life to harness enough strength, enough bravery, to stand up and say this. In my opinion, she's more than just a little bit of progress, and she deserves to be seen and heard.
I can certainly understand Kris' need to have a title of power that reflects the hugely impressive job she does in both raising her daughters and managing their careers. How many woman can say they have built an empire on the public's fascination with a family that does, well, nothing.
Who wouldn't applaud such bravery in the public eye? But I am applauding for a different reason.
To be fair, I'd actually done it a few times in weeks prior and found it to be gentle and relaxing. But apparently, that was just the placebo effect because two hours into dinner, it kicked in. My temperature started rising and everyone in the room was suddenly out for my blood. I felt like a Stark at the Red Wedding.
I finally hit the wall. I can't take it anymore. As a reporter and admitted purveyor of pop culture, I must bite the hand that feeds me and officially...
Right wing media wasted no time in going after Caitlin Jenner, ridiculing everything from her physical appearance to her name. Bryan Fischer, Host of Focal Point for the American Family Association, asserted on his program that he will continue to call Caitlyn Jenner "Bruce" and insisted on using male pronouns.
On March 5th, each Wellesley College student and alumna received an e-mail announcing the school's modified acceptance policy, which now includes tran...
It's not just that Caitlyn Jenner looks good. It's the amount of courage she has to have to put herself out there, first on television as a man, and then on the cover of Vanity-freakin'-Fair as a woman. And not a young woman, either. Jenner is 65-years-old -- midlife, but approaching her senior years.
A bevy of independent clothing companies have reached out to Bruce, hoping he'll wear their items when he finally emerges as a female for the first time in public.
The struggle between femininity and feminism is real, my friends, and even in this new millennium of progression and open mindedness, it still very much exists. Here are my current feminist struggles, and I'm sure you have way more to add to this list as well.
Bruce, please hold your head up high and never give up. You no longer need to hide. You no longer need to isolate. You have nothing left to fear. You have conquered more battles already than most could ever imagine in their wildest dreams.
We have more pressing intel on something that the fans really want to know.
If we can tell anything by American baby name trends, it is that pop culture (or lack thereof) influences parents throughout the U.S. The same goes for the reverse: when you're out, so is your name.
Once Kris realized that the Sawyer interview drew 17 million viewers on a Friday night -- making it one of the highest rated shows of the year, she began whistling a different tune.
The most important thing is to support each other and go through this as a team, which will keep you close and connected. That appears to be what Kim and Kanye are doing.
