Will Caitlyn Jenner, formerly Bruce, become Bruce again?

According to a new book, Caitlyn Jenner, formerly Bruce Jenner, is considering turning back into a man. That would make him Bruce Jenner, formerly Caitlyn Jenner, formerly Bruce Jenner.

In case you were wondering.

According to a friend of Jenner's, says the author, "It hasn't been easy for Caitlyn. It's been very hard." Right. Just imagine what it would be like to be celebrated by the media, put on the cover of Vanity Fair magazine, and given your own television show.

It's a hard life.

But just imagine what life must be like for those who celebrate Caitlyn, formerly Bruce, who, according to speculation may soon become Bruce, formerly Caitlyn, formerly Bruce. They will now have to undergo the same transformation they underwent when Bruce transformed into Caitlyn. They will have to suspend all critical judgment once again to ignore human nature and scientific reality and accept once again that a man can really become a woman (or potentially vice-versa) by the simple expedient of a few injections of hormones and breast implants along with a little determination.

On the other hand, this didn't seem to difficult even for so-called conservatives (like Megyn Kelly, who called Caitlyn "courageous") who readily accepted the idea that you can change your gender by simply announcing the fact that you feel like a sex other than the one you, in fact, are.

So get ready, just in case Caitlyn changes her (or what will then be his, formerly her, formerly his) mind, to nod obediently and approvingly like a good little postmodern person in sheepish acquiescence to the increasingly absurd vicissitudes of a clearly very confused person whose confusion is exceeded only by the confusion of his (or her, or his) cultural enablers.
