Sex-change should not be a spectacle

Thank God for Bruce Jenner's decision to cancel his decision to make a reality show about his transition into a woman. That process is one which people do not undertake lightly and which has a massive impact on the person and their friends and family. It is a delicate and, for some, difficult time. The least people in that situation can hope for is that the wider public treat the process with some respect.

If Jenner had made a reality show of his experience it could have seen something personal become fodder for mockery and public ridicule. Not because the process of procedure merits such a response - rather because anything associated with the Kardashians does. They attract viewers because a large chunk of their audience watch to sneer. That's not ok when the subject means so much to so many.
