(Wo)MAN Of the Year

Bruce Jenner has been named Glamour’s Woman of the Year.

He is a man.

Of course, Glamour is not the the most reliable source for finding out who the most inspirational and womanly Woman of the Year is, considering their track record. In the past Lady Gaga, Serena Williams, Michelle Obama, and Rihanna have all held the title.

It’s the fact that people are all excited and praising Bruce (I refuse to call HIM Caitlyn) for being Woman of the Year.

What did he do to deserve this title?

He chopped off his reproductive organs and got a boob job. Oh, he also grew his hair out, started wearing make-up, and gets a perverted kick out of cross-dressing.

None of these things make him a woman.

If I cut off my breasts, buzz my hair, and stop wearing make-up, does that make me a man?

Bruce Jenner does not have a vagina or natural breasts. He can not get pregnant, carry a baby for 9 months, and give birth. His body type is that of a former-olympic male athlete. Not a womans’ body.

He is not a woman.

He is a confused man whom people are idolizing.

He has a mental illness.

It sickens me that this is what people are calling Woman of the Year.

They call him courageous because he’s a celebrity that decided to become transgender. Forget the two women who became the first female Army Rangers. Forget all the women serving our country. Forget the women who have saved lives or invented wonderful things.

A cross-dressing man who did nothing but got some plastic surgery and slathered on some red lipstick is recognized before them.

But like I said, the folks at Glamour obviously have no idea what they’re doing.

Also, they all apparently skipped 9th grade anatomy.

Worldviews. Sometimes You Can’t Change Them.

Everyone has a worldview. Everyone’s is different. It changes their perspective on things. There are very many people who see the world through an atheistic view or the view of a different religion. As Christians, we know that this is wrong.

Sometimes you have to accept that some people will not change their minds, no matter how many arguments you counter with the Bible and your own personal faith.

Does that mean you stop trying? No.

Jesus did not give up and stay silent when the Pharisees refused to listen to Him. It’s our job to keep speaking. Christianity is dying out in the chaos of an atheistic, gender-queer, racist world. We need a resurgence of strong Christians. That will not happen if you are scared into remaining silent.

People will get offended. They’ll attack. So what? Aren’t you offended at what is being said? Why don’t you get a voice?

And what about that one person, the silent eyes that read what you have to say and are changed for the better? What about the one person who meets Jesus because of your conviction? They make it all worth it.

I’m so proud of some of my friends for being so vocal about what is right. I love it. It makes me happy. It gives me hope.

Speak up, Christians. We are not dead yet.
