Greatest Athlete or Most Famous Transgender? Caitlyn Jenner
currently learned about Caitlyn Jenner aka Bruce Jenner story (born 1949).
he was Olympic gold medal winner in track and fields, in 1972. Then he became a transgender woman in 2015, at age of 65.
it's remarkable because, ① this guy, was masculine, because you can't compete with other men in track and fields unless you are a man. ② he's changing to women, at the advanced age of 65. ③ Olympics gold medalist. Fame.
It's not a personal story, but social and cultural.
imagine, weird, statistically abnormal, people, like me, can one day, under the lime light, proclaim right of weirdness, and win applause.
what does it take for this change in society?
i think it's complex. Lot of factors and causes.
look at it this way. The social perception of gay male, has changed significantly in past decades. And similar, so has it about sexual practices (e.g. anal sex, fisting). And going back further, the perception of women in society in past decades. (we are considering only in context of modern USA.) And going back further, in USA, the perception of black people, and slaves.
society changes, social norms changes. So, the question here is, what causes it to change? and what kinda element can change? then, what kinda constituent, that made a structure of social norm in the first place?
this is a funny thing because, something that's a abhorrent crime today, can become a right tomorrow, and vice versa, as have happened above.

Stop Wearing Skirts When You Are Old
some stars, when they get old, gets ugly fast.
Prince (born 1958, age 57) aged very well.
Sinead O'Connor (born 1966) only at 49, doesn't look good at all. Bjork (born 1965, age 50), also don't look so good.
Don Johnson of Miami Vice, is doing extremely well.
Madonna (born 1958, age 57), not looking very good.
Billy Idol (born 1955, age 60), looks pretty bad now.
sometimes you see these old ladies, with heavy makeup, and still trying to act sexy on stage. Same with old guys on stage trying to be hip.
Grace Slick of Jefferson Airplane said it best:
“All rock-and-rollers over the age of 50 look stupid and should retire.”
why's a beautiful girl beautiful?
and so, what's the biological or evolutionary psychology's reason of facial beauty?
that is, why that cheerleader is much more fuckable than her nerdy schoolmate, even if both have the same curves?
web search academic papers for current theories.
i found this: 〔THE EVOLUTIONARY PSYCHOLOGY OF FACIAL BEAUTY By Gillian Rhodes, School Of Psychology, University Of Western Australia.〕 but didn't have time to verify quality.
by the way, girls, makeup, their effort and gravity of that endeavor, is ancient. You can see it in The Arabian Nights.
And, it is a critical, survival issue. As much as, i suppose, males fighting for a girl, sometimes to the death.
from the etymology of dashing to psychology of attraction. bottom: 韩宝仪 《你瀟灑我漂亮》 (You be Cool, I be Pretty)

The white race is the cancer of human history
for the lols, this
The white race is the cancer of human history; it is the white race and it alone—its ideologies and inventions—which eradicates autonomous civilizations wherever it spreads, which has upset the ecological balance of the planet, which now threatens the very existence of life itself
and who's Susan Sontag?
seems a big shot writer.
Susan Sontag (/ˈsɒntæɡ/; January 16, 1933 – December 28, 2004) was an American writer and filmmaker, teacher and political activist. She published her first major work, the essay “Notes on ‘Camp'”, in 1964. Her best-known works include On Photography, Against Interpretation, Styles of Radical Will, The Way We Live Now, Illness as Metaphor, Regarding the Pain of Others, The Volcano Lover and In America.
Sontag was active in writing and speaking about, or travelling to, areas of conflict, including during the Vietnam War and the Siege of Sarajevo. She wrote extensively about photography, culture and media, AIDS and illness, human rights, and communism and leftist ideology. The New York Review of Books called her “one of the most influential critics of her generation.” However, her essays and speeches sometimes drew controversy.
Sontag drew criticism for writing in 1967 in the Partisan Review that,
If America is the culmination of Western white civilization, as everyone from the Left to the Right declares, then there must be something terribly wrong with Western white civilization. This is a painful truth; few of us want to go that far. … The truth is that Mozart, Pascal, Boolean algebra, Shakespeare, parliamentary government, baroque churches, Newton, the emancipation of women, Kant, Marx, Balanchine ballets, et al., don't redeem what this particular civilization has wrought upon the world. The white race is the cancer of human history; it is the white race and it alone—its ideologies and inventions—which eradicates autonomous civilizations wherever it spreads, which has upset the ecological balance of the planet, which now threatens the very existence of life itself.
