Cui bono?

It is driving up the price of Jenner's old sports memorabilia.

What's up with AP still calling Miz Jenner "Bruce"?

Update:

This Caitlyn Jenner Halloween Costume Is The Worst Idea We've Heard All Year
Huffington Post
...

“Caitlyn Jenner has proven to be the most important real-life superhero of the year, and Spirit Halloween is proud to carry the costume that celebrates her," Trisha Lombardo, the company’s head of PR and marketing, told the Daily News. She offered no further details about the item, which will go on sale within the next four to six weeks.

Lombardo rejected the notion that the costume was problematic in an email to The Huffington Post. "At Spirit Halloween, we create a wide range of costumes that are often based upon celebrities, public figures, heroes and superheroes. We feel that Caitlyn Jenner is all of the above and that she should be celebrated. The Caitlyn Jenner costume reflects just that," she wrote.

Still, Vincent Villano of the National Center for Transgender Equality expressed his concerns.

"There's no tasteful way to 'celebrate' Caitlyn Jenner or respect transgender people this way on the one night of the year when people use their most twisted imaginations to pretend to be villains and monsters," he said in a statement to HuffPost on Friday.

...
The question not answered by the story is whether Jenner is getting a piece of the Halloween costume action.

I agree it's in bad taste, not unlike that especially Hittite nosed Henry Kissinger mask I once owned.

But it's publicity, right?

This is very important! Bigger than Deflategate maybe!!!

http://www.usatoday.com/story/life/2015 ... /32326565/
A gag "Call Me Caitlyn" Halloween costume, based on her lingerie-clad Vanity Fair cover, has sparked a backlash of outrage on Twitter about "transphobia."

. . .
A smaller, counter-backlash of outrage at the outrage also cropped up from tweeters who protested it was "just a joke."

. . .
Tweeters called for boycotts and urged protesters to sign petitions.
Petitions!
And not just on Twitter; spokespeople for transgender people condemned the costume as unfunny, contemptuous and mean.

"There's no tasteful way to 'celebrate' Caitlyn Jenner or respect transgender people this way on the one night of the year when people use their most twisted imaginations to pretend to be villains and monsters," said Vincent Villano, spokesman for the National Center for Transgender Equality in Washington.

The people at GLAAD, which monitors gay, lesbian, bisexual and trans images in the media, weren't happy either.

"When transgender women step out into the world as their authentic selves, they aren't wearing a costume," said a spokesman, Nick Adams. "Companies should think twice before seeking to profit from mocking trans women."
Honestly don't understand why this is such a big deal.

Is it kind of like the war between drag queens and some trans women? (Yes, certain trans women resent RuPaul and company. He's not "serious" enough I guess. And no, I did not "misgender" RuPaul by calling him he.) I kinda doubt there would be the same outrage about a RuPaul costume.

The ultimate trans publicity. You heard it here first.

Pay per view of the final reassignment surgery.

Not that many would want to see it, but enough would be willing to pay that it might be profitable.

Meanwhile, the very fact of it being done that way is yet more publicity.

Plus a "making of" documentary afterward.

From Abdul's link:
“Women are afraid to be a wife. Young males are afraid to be men. It’s not cool man, they aren’t marketing that. They’re not marketing families and husbands and wives no more, they marketing young girls, you know what I’m saying, transgenders, they marketing evil man. It’s really evil dog,” he said.
Well, everything becomes clear simple.

More generally I wonder up to what point one can troll celebs into answering insane questions. Are there famous examples?

To be fair, he did not appear that feminine to begin with. Now part of that is "make up" in that he wore his hair short. Had he worn his hair more "feminine," wore make up and all of that, she would look very female. Part of it is expectation.

Which is not a criticism. If she wanted to "shock"--oooo . . . Cubbies fuck up a double-play . . . is Steve Bartman in Pittsburgh?--she could have worn her hair long, put on make up, "dressed feminine" and all of that. Instead, she started as he preferred prior to taking the medication.

And, yes, I am having fun with pronouns.

Yeah, make-up, clothes and hairstyle is a big part of it, but I was trying to just focus on the shape of the face itself, which does appear to be different. I wonder if hormones work as well the other way around? My understanding is that it works best if started before puberty but of course that means a decision has to be made while the child is still a minor (although puberty can be delayed too).

I do not know if you can make hard and fast rules. Does someone "truly" feel they are a different gender or not? The problem is that some modalities are not reversible. In the case of children--CHILDREN!!!--I am afraid one should defer to caution in that you do not do surgery on them, give various hormones, and all of that based on reported preference.
