Ok, everyone, so I might be just a little behind in my news but recently I got a chance to watch the Caitlyn Jenner interview special show. I really have to say that they did such a great job in bringing about her history and her past as Bruce Jenner. We all had been hearing all kinds of news stories about her in the past year. I, for one, thought that they were all just tabloid junk and there probably wasn’t any truth to the rumors.
As time went on, Bruce began to say that there was a special coming up and I heard the name Caitlyn being tossed around, so then I knew that there was definitely more to this than I had first thought. As the special began and you saw the previews, you knew you were going to be taken on a journey.
From something that people were poking fun at a few months ago to seeing the full special, you really learned that it was no laughing matter. I think that Bruce did wonderfully in balancing the heaviness of his situation with some humor to keep it light at times. Things really got to a whole new level when his children from different marriages came onto the set to give their thought on the issue.
This would be something shocking for me to find out as a child but I know that I would be supportive of this situation. Heck, maybe even more so after having had the privileged of watching this special. Seeing how much it meant to Bruce that this was all finally coming to light was very moving. It really made you feel connected to him but I could not imagine how hard that had to be to do in front of a national audience, my heart goes out to him.
I had heard that this is now going to become a new reality show, which I don’t know if I agree with, but I think that the more people know about gender identity than the world will be a better place.
