Forty years ago, Bruce Jenner won the gold medal in the Olympics and set a world record for the decathlon. His picture was put on the cover of the once iconic magazine. To celebrate that great feet in Olympic history, Sports Illustrated will have Caitlyn Jenner pose nude on their cover wearing an American flag and the gold medal.
In what seems like a gasp for attention, Sports Illustrated is asking the transgender Jenner to pose nude for them. If anyone would stoop this low, it would be Sports Illustrated. If you have a subscription to Sports Illustrated, than you are either 10 years old or a complete loser who knows nothing about sports.
Jon Snow is the type o dude who would have a subscription to Sports Illustrated.
I wonder if they have transgender people in the Game of Thrones universe?
Us Weekly, revealed the new earlier today. It should not really come as a surprise to people that they are doing this. Anyone that does sports covers loves to do the anniversary cover. Wheaties does it, and I am positive the others in the dying industry of print media love to do it too.
My question is, would they have done this if Caitlyn was not transgender? They probably would have. If you think about it, Bruce did set a fucking record in the decathlon. The decathlon is debatably the hardest event in the Olympics, only debatably because I do not watch the Olympics. I really hope for the sake of a lot peoples social media accounts that they either do not notice or do not care. Because I can see this as the next big uproar the social media protesters will have. If they can jump on the choices of a Television network casting a white dude, instead of Asian to play the part of a superhero kung fo master, they will certainly get all over anyone who is against this news.
Honestly, no one should be against this. Anyone who is against this would be against Sports Illustrated being Sports Illustrated. It's what they do, they do these stupid anniversary photo shoots because they are a shitty magazine and no one buys them. They are doing an homage back to a time where people actually bought magazines.
