Bruce Jenner, former Olympic champion and current reality TV star, reportedly told her family that she has known she was a woman since she was five years old.
That means, among other things, that when she competed in the 1976 Summer Olympics, she should have competed as a woman, not a man.
Jenner won the gold in the men’s decathlon. As a wise straight white man once pointed out, if you’re a straight white male, you’re going through life at the lowest difficulty setting there is.
Jenner was pretending to be something she was not, a straight white male. She was getting an easier path because of it.
That’s not fair.
Jenner should be stripped of her medal, and it should be awarded to the man who came in second place, Guido Kratschmer of Germany.
Unless Kratschmer is now a woman too. If that’s the case, someone will have to go to Wikipedia and figure out who came in third place in the men’s decathlon and award him the gold medal.
It’s strange that she didn’t let the fact that she was a woman stop her from marrying other women, seemingly straight women, three separate times. Being a woman also didn’t stop her from fathering six children. I’d think that when you realize you’re a woman at age five, you should probably refrain from fathering multiple children.
It’s not very ladylike.
