Some claim that they are destined to be born as something and that they know of it since they were young. As such, they would do anything to make it possible. Take for instance, Bruce Jenner, as per mentioned in a recent report regarding his alleged transition.
According to TMZ, a source close to the Kardashian-Jenner family revealed that Jenner recently had a sit-down with his family and confessed that he kept his “true self” a secret since he was five years old. This means that he’s been having a feminine notion of things even back when he was an athlete during the ‘76 Olympics. Nonetheless, in front of his family, he still maintained a manly attitude. This included never wearing female attire even in the comforts of his private home.
Jenner, apparently, has not yet revealed the new name he intends to start using once he has undergone his transition, nor was he planning to reveal it in his exclusive interview with ABC’s Diane Sawyer.
As cited by MailOnline, previous reports also mentioned of Jenner telling his daughters to keep mum on any details regarding his transition, as he prefers to tell it himself. According to TMZ, in the upcoming tenth season of “Keeping Up With the Kardashians,” the Kardashian-Jenner family will not be doing any press conference to avoid getting questions about Jenner’s supposed transition.
Despite Jenner’s family showing their support for him, some of Jenner’s fans expressed their shock and regrets in hearing the news, especially of those back when he was still an athlete. This included poker player Doyle Brunson, as stated in a tweet he posted on Jan. 31, 2015.
“I can’t believe Bruce Jenner is trying to become a woman? He was a hero of mine since I was involved in track long ago.#Sayitsnottrue”
