"There is not a thing wrong with wanting comfortable, low drama clothes that provide coverage."

"But when a wealthy reality TV star is on the public appearance trail wearing ill-fitting, unflattering cheap catalogue clothes with crappy wigs, an intervention is called for. No one’s expecting her to sport the high-drag of her daughters and step-daughters, but some polish and elegance isn’t an unreasonable expectation."

Tom & Lorenzo get severe with Caitlyn Jenner.

He's gonna be sorry for making himself into a woman.

Men can get away with throwing on a sort-of-clean shirt and any old pair of jeans.

Women not so much.

But mostly the issue is that when she first announced the change every photo we saw was of a roll-out photoshoot with heavy Photoshop assistance. Perhaps some of us thought that's what Jenner really looked like with a modicum of attention to basic grooming, rather than after digital editing?

(P.S. Is it weird that I'm starting to enjoy the "I'm not a robot" quizzes -- are they available as a video game somewhere?)

Tom and Lorenzo - Who the hell are they and who cares?
Brrrruce - Eww!

She looks better than Amy Schumer, who is pictured at the bottom of the page.

Curious George said...

I wouldn't fuck Caitlyn with Bruce Jenner's dick.

I wonder if it has anything to do with her being a 66 year old man?

It is an election year and she's come out as supporting Republicans.

Time to go stand in the corner with David Mamet.

That's not even mentioning women drivers.

Darcy said...

Damn. Bitchy. I think he looks as nice as he's going to look as a woman.

Homosexuals are starting to get vexed at transsexuals for stealing the attention.

"Hire a damn stylist, along with a hair and makeup team. "

So it takes 4 people from one shemale to leave the house?

Talk about having an unsustainable model. World War T indeed.

Meow. Find a litterbox, Tom and Lorenzo.

holdfast said...

@Fitz - I wonder what zer stylist team's carbon footprint is? Won't somebody please thing of Gaia!

This is where I think the transition becomes difficult. He's lived his whole life as a man- a handsome man. And handsome men don't have to try very hard to be fashionable. Handsome 66 year old men don't have to have a new outfit every day. They can be comfortable.
But something in him made his know he was a woman. While I can't understand what that is, he understood it. Did he want to wear women's clothes? Have women's hair? Did he know in advance the pressures on a 66 year old woman who wants to be a style queen? How could he have known?

And now Caitlyn is thrown headlong into this world, with the pressures a female learns throughout her life. Men have different pressures, and Bruce knew those. But he didn't know what Caitlyn would experience, even as he longed to be her.

The currency- the sexual currency- a 66 year old wealthy woman trades in is much different than the currency of a 66 year old wealthy man. Is this was Caitlin wants? Is it what she expected? Those are things I'd like to hear.

So men can be women if they feel like it, and vice versa, but the only acceptable way to "be" a woman is to be stylish and vampy? Maybe Caitlyn feels like a frumpy woman - why is that not a possible choice? I thought it was only evil conservatives like me who were denying "trans" people the right to be who they want to be. What if Caitlyn wants to wear LL Bean women's clothes? Lots of women (actual, biological women) do that, and they are still women.

Tom B said...

I'm with Tari 100%, and Tom & Lorenzo should be ashamed of themselves. Caitlyn Jenner clearly identifies as dowdy and everyone should respect her decision (or else).

"He's lived his whole life as a man- a handsome man"

Uh-uh. He lived his life as a PRETTY man. And now he's a no longer good looking, aging man who cross-dresses in ugly women's clothes.

Poor man.

jaed said...

"Being pretty is not a rent women must pay for occupying a space in the universe marked 'female'." - ancient feminist slogan

Surely this is still true even for a man who chooses to live as a woman?

I thought they were talking about Hillary Clinton.

All I see is how lifeless Jenner's eyes are.
