“I’ve grown into Caitlyn,” she told Sawyer . “It’s tough to take 65 years of being Bruce and being male, and then like, overnight, everything changes. At first you don’t know how to handle it.”
But now? “All of that confusion has left me,” she said.
“I had a guy actually … ask for a selfie and said, ‘Oh Bruce, could you give me a selfie?’ And I looked at him. Nobody’s called me that in two years almost now, and I said, ‘No problem,’” Jenner, who claims she takes 20 to 40 selfies a day with strangers, told Sawyer. “I want them to walk away saying, ‘Oh Caitlyn Jenner was so nice’ …. that trans people, yes, are approachable … and they are a vital part of our society.”
“If you want to call me names, make jokes, doubt my intentions, go ahead, because the reality is I can take it,” she said. “But for the thousands of kids out there coming to terms with being true to who they are, they shouldn’t have to take it.”
