‘For All Intents And Purposes, I Am A Woman.’ – Bruce Jenner Says, While Clarifying That He Is Not Gay

‘For All Intents And Purposes, I Am A Woman.’ – Bruce Jenner Says, While Clarifying That He Is Not Gay

Screenshot - 4_25_2015 , 6_13_51 AMBruce Jenner is explaining his sexuality after revealing to Diane Sawyer that he is transitioning into a woman.

During his exclusive sit-down interview with ABC News, Bruce shared that he is “not gay.”

“I am, as far as I know, heterosexual,” he explained. “As far as I know, I’ve never been with a guy. I’ve always been married, raising kids.”

“And you can desire a woman every bit as much?” Sawyer asked.

“Yah, yah,” he responded.

Sawyer continued, “If you are a male and you become a female, but you like women, are you a lesbian? Are you a heterosexual who…”

But before Sawyer could fill in the blank, the Olympic athlete said, “You’re going back to the sex thing and it’s apples and oranges.”

At the beginning of his sit-down, Jenner revealed he was transitioning from a man to a woman. “Yes, for all intents and purposes I am a woman,” the Keeping Up With the Kardashians star shared. “My brain is much more female than it is male.”

And when Sawyer asked who was the first person he told about his cross dressing, he revealed that it was his first wife Chrystie Crownover almost one year into their marriage.

“I would have to say Chrystie probably would be the first one to know. I didn’t go heavily into it back then,” he shared. “I said these are my issues, this is what I deal with. I do a little cross dressing, I do a little of this and that. It’s going to be fine.”

Following his revelations at the two-hour sit-down interview with ABC News, the Kardashian and Jenner family shared their love for Bruce Jenner.Screenshot - 4_25_2015 , 6_16_37 AM

“Couldn’t be a more proud daughter. With courage and bravery, let’s change the world,” Kourtney Kardashian tweeted. “I am honored to stand by Bruce’s side and support him.”

Khloé Kardashian added, “Just finished watching the #BruceJennerInterview with the family. Bruzer, I’m soooo proud of you! Dads really are heros.”

Last but not least, ex-wife Kris Jenner shared her thoughts on the emotional interview. “Not only was I able to call him my husband for 25 years and father of my children, I am now able to call him my hero,” she wrote to fans.

    Gosh! This kadashian family sha, soooo much drama. Dont be surprised that this may end up as a publicity stunt. Small time he will change back to men.

    That said, I have to give it up to all men who really feel like women inside. Its not easy. I still love bruce tho. The witch kris must have prevented him from coming out for 25years

    I was talking to a friend about this, and I was like @67? What is the point? Then i realized how stupid and insensitive i sounded.

    This is what he feels currently, and there is no point living if you cannot be true to yourself. Goodluck Bruce

    I was shocked when I heard it. Trans people are usually :
    Young (in their twenties or thirties)
    Single (never married)

    So for Bruce freaking Jenner to do this came as a surprise. Well, whatever makes him sleep well st night.
    Congrats lesbo Bruce ☺.

    Anything Kardashian or Jenner is a NO NO for me. The next thing we’d see is a series ‘From Man to Woman-The Bruce Jenner Story’. Hell, No! I am not interested and I am not going to waste my time rationalising what is happening to the guy.

        Well there is actually a Docu Series premiering On June 26 airing on E! It should have 8 episodes each an hour long i think, it’ll chronicle his transition.

        I dont think its a publicity stunt, I dont think even they ( the Kardashian – Jenner clan) would stoop this low for attention. If the series is done well The series should educate people on Trans issues and what transitioning is like. Kinda like how Chaz Bono’s did.

        Although Bruce will obviously make a few bucks along the way…so i dont know really.

        Like I said, I don’t have time to waste rationalising this issue. He said he is not gay, neither is he a lesbian. So, why should I care again?

      I wonder what his sexuality is..
      He’s now a woman and still likes women, which means he’s a lesbian. But he said he’s not a lesbian(but he’s now a woman) which means he likes men and is now a heterosexual woman and he’s also gay because he is biologically a man.. ☺ you see, Bruce is everything.

    Bruce just want to be a woman. He doesn’t want to involve sex into it all…..so there’s no point calling him a Lesbian because he didn’t say he’s attracted to any woman.

    I don’t understand why he’s doing this and why now? He’s lived his much of his life as a man, a convincing one at that. So why now, in his 60s is he making such a life altering decision? I believe this is what happens when one has alot of money and spare time in ones hands. They’re alot of things im sure we’ll all like to change abt ourselves and some of us have the means to, but theirs something called self restraint! Its what stops u from adding the extra cube of sugar or splurging on that luxury perfume. And its what differentiates us from animals really. Just because u feel like doesn’t mean you should.

      ‘Just because u feel like doesnt mean you should’.
      One can also say just because you feel like sleeping with men doesnt mean you should either.

      It doesn’t matter if Bruce is 300yrs old, you sir dont know what its like to be him, to be in his skin, to walk in his shoes, you and I do not know how he feels…so can you just for a moment put ur judgemental hat aside,

      ‘And its what differentiates us from animals really’.
      I cant count the amount of times the homophobe has used this line against homosexuals, but here we have a gay man using the same line against a trans person. The irony.

      Gay guys judging transgender folks never ceases to amaze me. Baffling stuff.

        Never ceases to amaze you? Really? Because a 65yr old grandfather sudddenly deciding to become a woman is as mundane as mowing the lawn. You must live in wonderland .

        No i dont live in wonderland. I do believe there is such a thing as kindness. I admit to not fully understanding why Bruce is doing what he is doing, i admit to not even fully understanding Transgenders, I admit it but I wont Judge Bruce cause I as a gay man know what that feels like. When someone who doesnt understand you judges you because of that.

        You know the way the homophobe says stuff like he has no idea how we can be attracted to our fellow man, how we can want dick when here is so much pussy out there, and we say its just they way we are wired, its the way we are, and we cant change it even if we tried…

        Bruce’s feels like he is a woman, you might not understand the concept or why he is doing this now, but the least you can do is show kindness amd compassion that the homophobe didnt show to you.

        You say he suddenly decided to become a woman, you dont know how long has struggled with it or how difficult its been, if this is the time he feels most comfortable about coming out and transitioning then thats fine…its his journey not yours, so dont belittle it.

        We are LGBT for Pete’s sake, we (gay guys) know how difficult it is, the stigma, discrimination, so seeing gay guys judge transgenders like i said never ceases to baffle me.

        Yes I am gay, but that doesn’t mean I can’t be shell-shocked from time to time, infact being shell- shocked would be the ideal reaction in this case. We’re all trying to be politically correct and kind as regards this issue but that’s just pageantry. The fact is a 65yr old grandfather wanting to be a woman, is highly unheard of and unconventional even for modern times like this – so pardon me if am abit taken aback by the whole thing.

        And one’s failure to understand how two men find each other attractive, isn’t being homophobic. I dont see how men find girls attractive, does that make me heterophobic? Genuine phobia always involves unprovoked antagonizing. So lets lay low with the labels.

        The fact is, some things like, Bruce Jenner are just too mind boggling for ppl to understand and that’s that

          You can be shellshocked, Diablo. But shock does not eschew kindness and an attempt to understand. Your causticness excludes you from the right to ask the general heterosexual population for understanding that you are who you are. You keep throwing Bruce’s age around. By that vein, I suppose you think a 65 year old gay grandfather who realizes he can no longer keep up the straight family man charade and wants to break out of his closet… In your opinion, he shouldn’t because it’d be ridiculous at his age to come out, right? So to you, there’s a time stamp on when you’re allowed to be happy?

        Bruce Jenner isnt the oldest person to start transitioning so it isnt new, it isnt unheard of, maybe to you though.
        PS. The tone of disgust with which the question about how two men find each other attractive is whats homophobic. You should know what i meant.

        Bruce Jenner transitioning is too mind boggling for you to understand, how about you try to understand it then? The same way he is mind boggling to you is the same way ur attraction to men is mind boggling to some other people. That is also that.

        I also fail to understand why you keep mentioning his 65 yrs of age?? So what if he is 65?? Does that mean we stop living when we get to a certain age?? So if he had made the decision at 28 or 30 that would have been easier for you to swallow eh?? Less shocking? Less mind boggling??

        I cant imagine how it must be to feel trapped in a body that doesnt express who you truely are, i am in awe of the bravery of Bruce and Every Trans person out there. It doesnt matter if it takes you 70 or 27 years to get there, the fact that you did is nothing short of awesome.

      Mirage, I have no words for you. I see the callous ignorance gay men exhibit here on the issue of transgender people, and it makes me wonder if we are deserving of the understanding we clamour for.
      Kindly check the words you are saying and ponder on how you will react if similar words are thrown at you from a homophobic person.
