    Bruce Jenner Comes Out as Transgender: ‘For All Intents and Purposes, I Am a Woman’

    The Olympic gold medalist and TV personality opened up about his journey

    Time - Entertainment/Television
    April 24, 2015
    By Daniel D’Addario


    At the 1976 Summer Olympics in Montreal


    At the Michael Jordan Celebrity Invitational gala, April 4, 2014

    Olympic gold medalist and TV personality Bruce Jenner confirmed in a new interview late Friday that he is undergoing a long-rumored gender transition, saying it would be his time known as “Bruce.”

    “For all intents and purposes, I am a woman,” Jenner said in the interview that aired Friday night on ABC. “My heart and my soul and all I do in life, that is part of me.”

    “Sexuality is who you personally are attracted to—who turns you on— male or female,” Jenner said. “But gender identity has to do with who you are as a person and your soul, and who you identify with inside.”

    Describing to ABC’s Diane Sawyer the process of God assigning traits, Jenner described his best-known attributes and then said: “Let’s give him the soul of a female and let’s see how he deals with that.”

    Sawyer, in the long-anticipated interview, said that Jenner began hormone treatment in the 1980s, but stopped due to his own religious beliefs and his fear of embarrassing his children.

    Jenner didn’t disavow his past role as an Olympian and, for a time, the paragon of machismo as far as the public was concerned. When Sawyer gave Jenner his (and Jenner noted he prefers masculine pronouns for the time being) Wheaties box, Jenner said: “I am proud of that moment.” But as far as the wildly popular persona was concerned, Jenner said: “Being Bruce isn’t easy.”

    Asked whether his story is a publicity stunt, Jenner replied: “What I’m doing is going to do some good and we’re going to change the world.”

    “I had this feeling—kind of a revelation—that maybe this is my cause in life,” Jenner said. “This is why God put me on this earth, is to deal with this issue. And that was a very powerful moment. It certainly gave me an awful lot of courage.”

    “If this is the only problem I have in life,” Jenner said, “I’ve got it made.”

    All he needs now is a Black boyfriend. Then the Kardashian circus is complete.

    He's starting to look like Tony Soprano's shrink.
    Living in an estrogen rich environment turned him into a wus I guess.

    Can you say insecure, needy, egotistical male with too much estrogen influence?

    Mostly an unconscious publicity stunt to assure he gains the needed attention during his remaining years.

    All in all, a very sad human being.

    I had never heard of him before this weekend when he appeared on Sky News. I don't seem to have missed much.

    That was my point. He will gain a lot of visibility from this, which is what he needs/wants.

    It disappeared when there were more than three TV networks in the US.

    Sawyer should be shot for not immediately asking him who he supports in the GOP primaries. Popcorn manufacturers everywhere need to know.

    Still, hopefully this closes the chapter on the Republicans war on women: men are converting to women then becoming Republicans!

    Heh...

    Diane Sawyer’s interview with Bruce Jenner on ABC pulled in 16.9 million viewers Friday, although there was a big ratings drop in blue states right after Bruce admitted to being a Republican.

    The first Republican to come out rather then being outed.

    BRUCE JENNER’S ICONIC WHEATIES BOXES SELL FOR HUNDREDS AFTER TRANSGENDER REVEAL



    Wheaties boxes featuring Bruce Jenner following his 1976 Olympic triumph are being auctioned off on eBay just days after a highly anticipated interview with Diane Sawyer aired, in which he ended months of speculation by confirming he is transitioning to female.

    The memorabilia from nearly four decades ago seem to be a hot commodity, with bids being placed as high as $255 listed on the site.

    According to The Daily Mail, one Twitter user is hoping to sell his mint condition box for $500.

    NewsDay reports an unopened box sold for $177 since Jenner’s two-hour interview aired last Friday. Magnets and towels with Bruce’s likeness are also for sale.

    Transgender actress Laverne Cox, who has a recurring role in Orange is the New Black, said Jenner’s big reveal was “like another gold medal.”

    “This is better than a gold medal,” Cox told MSNBC at the White House Correspondents’ Dinner this past Saturday.

    Jenner was featured on the Wheaties cereal box after he brought home Olympic gold for the decathlon during the 1976 Summer Olympics in Montreal.

    Although the former athlete gained worldwide recognition after his win, he told Sawyer he felt alone and lost at the time because of the struggle with his gender identity.

    Bruce also explained to Sawyer during the interview why it would be his last appearance as a man.

    “My brain is much more female than it is male. That’s what my soul is. Bruce lives a lie. She is not a lie,” she said. “I can’t do it anymore.”

    Several Twitter users have asked General Mills to put Bruce on another box of Wheaties, as they suggest she’s now an even bigger champion in their eyes."

    Somehow can't imagine Jenner on another box of Wheaties in the condition he/she is now.
