Caitlyn Jenner, 67- year old reality television star aka formerly athlete Bruce Jenner, just went through the final surgery, completing the transition into a woman.
Jenner was quoted saying, in a moment of “candor,” that it was difficult to make this decision, but even though the situation was “complex,” “it’s just a penis.”
Jenner exclaimed, “I am a woman,” continuing to describe the hardships of masquerading as a female in a male’s body. Does Jenner regret the decision to transform from male to female?
When asked, “I feel not only wonderful, but liberated.” The surgery was a success, and just in time for Jenner’s new book of memoirs to be released later this month.
“I am telling you because I believe in candor,” Jenner reportedly writes in the book. “So all of you can stop staring. You want to know, so now you know. Which is why this is the first time, and the last time, I will ever speak of it.”
In April 2015, Jenner — who earned a gold medal in the decathlon at the 1976 Olympic games in Montreal — told Diane Sawyer in a 20/20 interview that he had always been confused about his gender identity.
“I am a woman,” Jenner said at the time. “It’s not like I’ve been dressing up like a woman, it’s like I’ve spent my whole life dressing like a man.”
Following the reveal, Jenner appeared on the cover of Vanity Fair, was named Glamour magazine’s “Woman of the Year” and was awarded the Arthur Ashe Courage Award at the 2015 ESPY Awards. Jenner also starred in the reality series I Am Cait, which ran for two seasons on E!.
