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.

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.
