Movie TV Tech Geeks’ Bruce Jenner Transgender Challenge

Movie TV Tech Geeks’ Bruce Jenner Transgender Challenge

It takes a lot for us to get inspired by something we’ve watched on tv, so you can only imagine the shock we felt here at Movie TV Tech Geeks News when the recent Keeping Up with the Kardashians, “About Bruce” special aired and truly did just that. None of us here watch the show, but for some reason, we wound up checking out the first part and then returned again for part 2.

I had trouble believing that I was watching a show that normally feels so exploitative handle a subject as sensitive as Bruce Jenner‘s transitioning into a woman. Instead of over the top antics, they delivered an intimate look into gender identity and its impact on a family.

Our writers have poked fun many times at the Kardashian family, so when I told three of them that they would be watching and writing about the episodes, there was quite a bit of disbelief. We made a point to choose writers who were neither fans of the show or the Kardashian family. We also wanted to make sure that these three writers were very different from each other, both in background and perspective, so they could represent a broad demographic view of this subject matter.

The first writer, Shane Mclendon, is a very southern good ole boy who covers football and MMA on our site. The second is our Curvy Girl Diva, who was raised in a very conservative Pentecostal Apostolic church. The last writer, Janiera Eldridge, who writes for our movie section, was raised in a liberal Christian home. The only common denominator the three share is their dislike of the Kardashian family and the show as a whole. They were all tasked with watching each of the two episodes. From there, they were directed to write a two articles sharing their honest opinions about their preconceptions about both the Kardashian family and the transgender community.

I think readers will be very surprised when they discover the very different viewpoints of each writer and whom they belong to. You can check out all six articles in this series by going here.
