A Family Guy clip from 2009 which appears to predict Caitlyn Jenner‘s gender transition has gone viral. In it, Stewie and Brian see Brody Jenner and comment on what a giant douchebag he is. “Ugh,” says Stewie. “I can’t believe he came out of Bruce Jenner‘s vagina,” When Brian points out that Bruce Jenner is a man, Stewie sighs and says “No, Brian. That’s what the press would have you believe. Bruce Jenner is a woman. An elegant, beautiful, Dutch woman.”
Two years later, Jenner appeared on the show once again as an overtly feminine, dancing model for a group of horny sailors. “Just wanted to remind you fellas what you’re all fighting for,” Peter Griffin says in the clip.
Of course, rumors about Caitlyn have been floating around since the early ’90s. But, as Mediate wonders, “did Seth MacFarlane and the rest of the Family Guy writers actually know something the rest of the public didn’t? Or were they just inferring something about Jenner’s gender based on appearance and affect alone? While the joke may have seemed harsh at the time, in retrospect it is remarkably prescient.”
