Reconsider tradition? Nope. Not here.

Are you ready? I hope so because I am about to speak my mind.
I know it’s been awhile since my last blog post. Then again, when have I ever taken the time to post in a timely or organized fashion? ….. Yeah, never. Recently however I took a Facebook hiatus to do a little soul searching and disconnect from the world. Clearly it was the wrong time to do such a thing because shit went bat shit crazy during that time. So here I am, back again on my blog and Facebook to speak my mind. If you don’t like what I have to say then please, unfriend me and help me weed out the herd.
My post this evening is geared toward Mr. Bruce Jenner and no I will not be referring to him as “Caitlyn” because in my mind, “Caitlyn” does not exist. Let me tell you why I have such a huge problem with “Caitlyn”….
I was born a female with multiple birth defects to sixteen year old parents. I have a condition known as camptodactyly in my left hand, meaning that my left hand besides my index finger and thumb is basically useless. I was also born with a severe case of congenital scoliosis and have had three spinal fusions/hardware placement/hardware removals. I also underwent a C-section after thirty-six long hours of labor to have my baby because of all of this. If that’s not enough, let’s talk about my first pregnancy, that’s right folks, I have had a miscarriage, fibroids, ovarian cyst, and let’s talk about those super fun shots you get when you carry an Rh factor. However, apparently none of the things that I have gone through as a woman or human being compare to what Bruce Jenner had to go through to “become” a woman.  That fool is up there receiving awards, contracts, and money to run around and dress like me? What the…. You are kidding me right?
Let me tell you something… I am not perfect. I have made a lot of huge mistakes in my life. I have been divorced, I have hurt people, I drink, I cuss, and in general I just don’t care what others do but when someone makes my gender or the things I have accomplished as a WOMAN seem trivial I have a huge issue with it and I feel like you should too. I have to ask, what happened to having just a little bit of morals? At what point do people put their foot down and ask, “What the hell happened and how can we fix it?” I feel like we have gone way, way, too far.
