My father, on reading that Caitlyn Jenner received the Ashe Award at the ESPYs: “BLAAARGHHHHH.”
Sure, she isn’t an accurate representation of the struggle most transgender people face, but “BLAAAARGHHH”? Really?
My mother, on learning the same news: “I agree with the letter to the editor that said the young men going off to war and getting their legs blown off are just as brave as Caitlyn Jenner.”
My mother’s sounds better, but she was recently sitting around with a bunch of other old ladies, and they decided it would be all right if gay people could get married, as long as it wasn’t called “marriage.” You know, something kind of separate, yet equal.
