SI can only imagine that this version of Jenner is throwing his arms up and screaming ‘What the hell have I become?!’

‘Unleashed’: Abnormal is The New Normal

More disturbing is actual quote’s from Jenner himself during his interview with Vanity Fair gossip magazine, like seen above. He questions what he’s done to himself and refers to himself, or ‘theirself’ as multiple personalities start to appear, in the third person with both names. A counselor from a place called the “Los Angeles Gender Center,” because these places apparently actually exist, assured Bruce that the above reaction is “normal” and temporary when one decides to mutilate their body to support their delusions.

John Hopkins Hospital was the first hospital in the nation to offer sexual reassignment surgery in the early 1960s, but later in the 60s or early 70s they stopped performing these surgeries. According to Dr. Paul McHugh, formerly the Chief of Psychiatry at John-Hopkins Hospital, they stopped doing sexual reassignment surgery (as quoted above)because they realized that the results weren’t relative to success in making these patients healthier, just in disfiguring them. He goes on to detail how the “transgendered persons disorder” is one of assumption, which is similar to an anorexic viewing themselves as overweight.

While we consider all of that we should also take into account that ‘transgender’ didn’t exist as a word until 1971, 5 years before Jenner won gold at the Olympics, but wasn’t widely used until 1979. Although ‘transsexual’ was first used in 1949 it was ‘transvestite’ that came first in 1910 and was coined by Magnus Hirschfeld. Hirschfeld setup the Institute for Sexual Research under a much more liberal Weimar Republic in Germany, and performed the first recorded sexual reassignment surgery there.

The media, in fact, cheered Jenner’s decision so much that his twitter account gained one million followers in its first 4 hours. Time, yes that Time, tweeted about the “news” of Jenner’s decision 12 times in the first 5 hours (and 47 times from 8pm on June 1st to Sunday afternoon) and that is an example from just one news outlet.
