I'm sure many people don't want to see many things in the News, that doesn't make them less or more important to report on an d bring awareness too. if you don't want to read a story about LGBTQ issues, don't read it, don't watch it.... also don't put us in the same line as Pedophiles because that is just ignorance talking

Do any of those missed media stories affect you personally? Who are they really a big deal for? They are a big deal for those they affect.

While these other news stories are worthy, I take exception with you calling Bruce Jenner's decision as being brave and courageous. Courage is laying your life on the line. Bravery is facing a life-threatening disease, knowing full well that the odds are stacked against you. What he did was nothing even close.
Let's be clear, it seems that people with craploads of money and who live in this fictitious bubble of reality, always seem to end up crazier than bat crap. If fame, fortune and the constant media spotlight make you want to undergo gender-altering surgery, then I want none of it.
I can give a care less what that human being decides to do with their life. And I certainly don't want nor do I need to be blasted with that information from every news outlet. I guess news always plays to the most sensational story, and I dare say to the lowest common denominator of people they think tune in to watch or listen.
What utter garbage and nonsense to have spent more than 5 seconds on this.
