Caitlyn Jenner will be on the cover of Sports Illustrated posing nude with her medals she won as " Bruce". I wonder why she will be sporting medals a man won. A life she did not identify with. What are your thoughts of a naked transgender on the cover? Not long ago SI featured one of their first plus size models Ashley Graham , who got a lot of hate for her size and natural curves. It will be interesting to see if society accepts a trans person before they accept a plus size women as beautiful.
Well most of the women who normally pose for that magazine are essentially just strippers so at least Caitlyn is an actual athlete or was an athelete.
Still I feel like Sports Illustrated is switching their demographics. The audience that has historically been into SI won't like her being on the cover but all the women who are passionate about LGBT issues will buy it.
As a straight guy I have no interest in seeing it but if other people want to see it then good for them.
People didn't accept Ashley Graham because we don't think plus size women can't be beautiful, we didn't accept her because she's not a sportswoman and she doesn't promote a healthy lifestyle while being fat. She had no reason to be in SI cover. Caitlyn Jenner on the other hand, she was an athlete when she was Bruce, so she actually has more reason to be in the cover, even though we know the reason she's gonna make the cover has nothing to do with sports.
It tells me that sports as we one time knew it is going down hill very fast.. it is not even about the sports event now a days.. it is all about the money that can be made by certain people.. Tom Brady and the patriots showed that side of things, where you can now cheat and most likely get away with it, because he makes lots of money for the owners.. give me a break
"Caitlyn Jenner is a man" I have nothing against transgender people however I do disagree with the philosophy. As a student of science, I believe based on my understanding of human biology that a human being is physically incapable of changing their sex.
I don't have a problem with the idea of changing one's sex because certain animals are able to do so, such as clown fish however I maintain that humans are unable to do so.
And so from a scientific perspective, Caitlyn Jenner is male.
It's stupid. Feminism wanted to destroy the differences between the genders and this is what you get. Women in the west have failed as women so much they are now being overshadowed by an old guy with a boob job.
I learned about trans people several years ago and have been supportive to some degree (i. e. not the crazy activists that expect new words used for them), but we should stop pretending that Caitlyn Jenner is hot. A lot of magazines do those types of picks though. All of those "sexiest women alive" lists always add women to empower others like they'll add Michelle Obama or some way past their prime lady.
Anyway, there are a lot of beautiful transgender women out there. They could have given some of them the attention.
I'm not looking forward to it. There's nothing wrong with being trans (i am) but someone who is that old, frankly does not get good results from the treatment. You wouldn't want to look at some 60 year old guy naked, let alone some 60 year old trans person.
She's causing the rest of us issues, no one cared about us until she came and started doing all this publicity stuff. Violent crimes against us has spiked since she came out. She needs to stop before she does more damage which may be irreparable. Laverne cox is a great example of a role model or spokesperson. NOT a kardashian.
I think she totally deserves to be on there so it's great! Also what would be so shocking about people viewing a trans woman as more beautiful than an overweight woman? Being transgender at least isn't bad for your health...
