Wednesdays Question

It's Wednesday so that means it's question time. It's time to ponder and then answer just one question. Okay, you can add all you want as a reason for your answer too. We'd all like that.

Here's this weeks question: There have been tons of press over Bruce Jenner's becoming a woman. Many have said she's a hero, more so than decorated military personnel in some cases. Is Caitlyn Jenner a hero or not?
No. I don't feel she's a hero. It did take a lot of courage for her to publicly do this, but a hero? No. This is a family that thrives on publicity. I do hope she's happy with her decision.

  1. Ima leave this question alone. Because honestly, all I can do is shake my head. And it's probably better that way.

    Have a blessed day hon. xoxo

    1. It's a pretty hot topic with some. I decided to just go for it. :)

  2. Actually, in New Zealand it's a non-story. It was mentioned once or twice, but it's not news, and certainly not hero news.

    1. It should be a non-story here too Rhonda. It's a private matter in my view. :)

  3. I'm gonna go with no on that one and leave it at that.
    Have a lovely day!

    1. Well, there was a seal or someone that was called a coward but she was called a hero. That's what started all this. :)

  4. I don't pay much attention to the media :-?

    1. We really don't have honest media anymore. It's all agenda driven. :)

  5. This goes on ever day and is never mentioned on the news for others. This story is for news and money. All of a sudden he/she has a new TV show. WOW! People are who they are and good for them but to make money and power, I'm sorry. That doesn't make it in my book. It's all about these Kardashian women. I just wish they would go away.
    Have a wonderful & beautiful Wednesday Sandee. See ya.

    1. Publicity is all she was looking for. It runs in their family. :)

  6. I don't get the "hero" label either. I suppose it was brave in a sense to do what he/she did, especially because he/she is such a public figure, but to me a hero must involve doing something dangerous that saves the lives of other people. I don't believe it was just for publicity either but I don't see how it could have been avoided either with the media following that family around all the time. I don't get why people care about them or watch them all all!

    1. I agree it took courage. I don't think I'd want that out for everyone to read. :)

  7. In my opinion, I say NO, this has nothing to do with being a hero, just personal preference that should not be in the news where there are more life threatening issues, more news worthy,like helping the homeless and starving children in America and welcoming our soldiers back home!

    Have a great week!

    1. I agree Karren. It's a personal preference that should not be in the news. :)

  8. I will never understand why people have to brag about doing something like he or she did..Who cares whether she or he is a she or a he. That is her own business, not mine.
    Cerrainly not a hero in my book. Just looking for attention.
    Sandee, you and Zane and Little Bit have a fantastic day.

    1. I think it's just the dynamics of that family. Probably for the press. :)

  9. Quite frankly I don't think "she" is a hero. I think the whole Kardashian family is all about publicity and getting their names in newspapers, the internet etc.
    What people do in their private lives is just that-private. Whether it's their sexual lives or how one chooses to live (or die) and their actions do not do something to harm another. I wish that everyone would mind their own business and not dictate their beliefs on others.

  10. Not a hero. Bluntly speaking- I personally believe if God put you on Earth with a penis, you should be a man and accept that fact. But I am not judging him, just think it is sad really. Not a Kardashian fan! I do feel sorry for their brother but we don't know the real story behind of that either. They are all so fake.

    1. I do think some folks are trapped in the wrong gender. I'm not a Kardashian fan either. :)

  11. No not a hero, brave for announcing and following through, but not someone who has risked their life to help others and save lives. I kind of feel sorry for him/her, she seems deeply troubled and it all just makes me feel very sad.

    ReplyDelete
  12. No, not a hero but if she gives others courage to live their authentic lives then I suppose that's a good thing. I can't even begin to understand what it feels like to be in the wrong body but at least now it's a discussion for those that do thanks to the Kardashian publicity machine.

    Hope the heat there doesn't stick around too long! I am so not a fan of triple digits either. Cool scritches for Little Bit!

  13. Nothing heroic about this action. May the hoopla die down soon.

  15. Not a hero to me probably has made quite a bit of money out of it, over the years I have known 3 transgender 2 male to female and 1 female to male they didn't make a fuss they just got on with it.
    Some people would quite happily tell their story in the media or should I say their "journey" for the takings.

  16. Hero? No. To myself, a hero is someone who saves someone's life, who fights for the lives of others, etc.

  17. I don't think she's a hero. It takes courage to do what she did...but there are people all over this country who have done the same thing and haven't been hailed heroes, so why him?

    1. Because he was Bruce Jenner? I don't know. :)

  18. No, I don't consider her a hero for trans-gendering... is that a vowel? She did manage to outdo the Kardashians. Have to give her credit for that. I'm waiting for the whole family to announce their one-way ticket to Mars ;)

    1. I'll pitch in on that one way ticket. Where do I send the money? :)

  19. It is fair to say that I don't find Bruce/Caitlyn to be a hero. I don't understand how anyone becomes so disappointed in who they are and what they were created to be, that they come to the conclusion that gender change is going to make things better. Instead I see a poor, misguided soul that is hopelessly lost and confused in this life.

  20. Not a hero in the traditional sense. A courageous person to come out and be the voice of people who go through this, yes. There is a difference between being a hero and being a courageous person.

    1. A huge difference between the two indeed. :)

  21. No, I don't consider him/her a hero or even as acting heroic. This was a personal choice that had no business even being publicized.

  22. Mom's gossip magazines in Denmark have written all about it. Mom thinks he/she can do what he/she please. But think he/she will earn a little money publishing his photos.

  26. Dear Sandee, No, I don't think she is a hero; simply living her life in the spotlight and sharing her thoughts and trials through life publicly; though this does take courage to endure public scrutiny through this time. I too hope she is happy. xo Catherine
