Support for Bruce Jenner Sex Change, Fact or Fiction

Advertisement - Continue Reading Below

For over a year, people have been speculating about whether or not Bruce Jenner is transitioning into a woman. Photos of Jenner seem to confirm that he is, as he is starting to look more feminine. Bruce said that the interviews and TV appearances that he is making have nothing to do with money, but everything to do with control. He wants his story to be told the way he feels is best.

In February, the Associated Press spoke with Ester Jenner about her son.

AP: Have you spoken to Bruce recently about his transition?

Jenner: It was brief and I said I was proud of him and that I’ll always love him. I never thought I could be more proud of Bruce when he reached his goal in 1976, but I’m more proud of him now. It takes a lot of courage to do what he’s doing.

AP: He has opened up in terms of his gender identity, which he now owns, as opposed to hiding like so many transgender people have to do? Is that right?

Jenner: That’s absolutely right. He said, ‘Mom, I’m still the same person.’ He said, ‘I’m still going to race cars, I’m still going to fly airplanes and I’m going to get my helicopter license.’

Transgenders often face life without the love and support of their family. Having the support of his mother will make things easier on Bruce as he goes forward.

However, the media seems to be covering the story with false information.

On Wednesday, March 18, US Weekly published a story that has since been retracted from their website. In the story, Bruce's daughter Kendall was quoted as saying "He's a wonderful man. And just because he's changing shoes now, so to speak, doesn't make him less wonderful. I will always love my dad, whether he's a man or a woman."

Sounds like something a loving daughter would say about her father. However, Kendall claims that she never made that quote and never had an interview with US Weekly to begin with. Jenner took to Twitter to address the false story.

Shame on US Weekly for making up quotes. I NEVER said those things. I never spoke to them.

how is it legal for someone to "quote" someone and publish it if in fact you never said what was quoted.

US Weekly asserted that the story came from a freelance reporter and that they reached out to him for confirmation. "He stood by the interview, and continues to maintain that the quotes are accurate. However, after attempting to reconfirm his account, editors of US have concerns about the veracity of this interview and the circumstances under which it was obtained. We would like to retract the story entirely and have removed it from our website. We sincerely apologize to Ms. Jenner and her family."

The true story may have to wait until Bruce Jenner himself is ready to talk about it. As he said, he wants his story to come out the way he feels is best, and that may be the only way to make sure that all details are factual.
