Bruce Jenner, Olympic hero and father of six, is now a woman…

His transition has been hailed by the media as a brave decision and he’s set to be awarded an ESPY Courage Award for well, his courage.

Bruce, or Caitlyn as he is now called, said, while coming out, that he has wanted to be a woman all his life and that this new journey is ‘his/her truth.’

While I’d like to believe this, I can’t shake the feeling that he was helped on that journey by the kind (or not so kind) Kardashians.

Almost every man who has been involved or connected with a Kardashian has been negatively affected; don’t believe me? Let’s take a look:

  • Robert Kardashian Jnr: Brother/ perpetual dependant: Rob Kardashian has failed at everything despite his sisters’ successes.

  • Lamar Odom: Married Khloe Kardashian as a successful basketballer, now an alleged crackhead.

  • Ray J: Formerly a budding musician, hooked up with Kim Kardashian, now remembered only for sex tape.

  • Scott Disick aka Scott Kardashian: Chronic alcoholic who is only enjoying ‘success’ because he emasculated himself before the Kardashians could get to it.

  • Kanye West: While still enjoying a successful career, Kanye West has only gotten angrier and surlier since he hooked up with Kim Kardashian. Also according to NY Daily, his union with the reality star seems to be hurting his approval ratings.

Now back to Bruce aka Caitlyn Jenner or as I’d like to call her, Kaitlyn Kardashian.

In my opinion, one of the reasons why Bruce decided to become a woman is because he felt overshadowed by the fame and success of the Kardashian women.

Here was a man who had enjoyed Olympic fame and suddenly his teenage daughters were more famous than him.

Also, before his split from matriarch, Kris, Bruce was frequently side-lined and more or less emasculated so he decided to finish the job, literally.

While speaking in an interview with Vanity Fair, he said that the split was “twenty percent (due to) gender and 80 percent (because of) the way I was treated.”

“The first 15 years I felt she needed me more because I was the breadwinner," Jenner said. He added however that once “Keeping Up with the Kardashians” became a hit, “she (Kris) didn't need me as much from that standpoint.”

Bruce Jenner was a man who was kept in the background and ridiculed more than once. One such incident was when Kris began to contemplate changing her name back to Kardashian. Snip, snip; there go Bruce’s balls.

Now he wants us to call him ‘Caitlyn’, a name which shares the same consonant with the famous Kardashian Ks. He probably just didn’t spell it with a ‘K’ because that would’ve been too obvious. Caitlyn also now has her own reality show and is worth five times more than Bruce; take that Kardashians.

Frankly Speaking, Bruce Jenner had been emasculated long before he decided on his sex change, but that’s just my opinion.

I’m not angry at him for his choice because it’s his to make and his alone.

However for those of you who are, you might want to direct your anger at the people who are actually responsible for the emasculation of Bruce Jenner as well as the rubbishing of reality TV; All hail the Kardashians.
