In response to a recent post here in Cyrsti’s Condo concerning the influence over the years of Caitlyn Jenner on the over all transgender community, Connie submitted this comment:
“Jenner never impressed me, except as an athlete. Nevertheless, she provided me with the means for one of my best comeback lines, back when she was first coming out. While I was standing in line at the meat counter, I struck up a conversation with another woman. An older man in line ahead of us turned around to look at us, subsequently clocking me (probably from my voice). He interrupted our conversation by asking me, “Are you like that Bruce Jenner guy?” Without hesitation, I answered back, “Well, I don’t really like to talk about my gold medal.” I guess I could have said that I wasn’t a Republican, but I think the gold medal line was my best choice. :-)”
What a great comeback!
As most of you know, I have never been a big fan of Jenner either but supposedly she has now rejected her “love” affair with rump. I hope it is true.
On another note, I discovered a post you may be interested in while checking in with one of the blogs I follow called “Mybookworld24”. The post critiques five current transgender memoir books. Go here to see it.
