Bruce also told Diane that he is a woman trapped in a mans body.
“I’ve always been confused with my gender identity since I was this big,” he said. “I’ve tried to explain it to them this way. God is looking down making little Bruce he says what am I going to do with this one… make him a smart kid, really determined. Let’s give him the soul of a female… here I am stuck … I’m me I’m a person this is who I am. I’m not stuck in anyone’s body this is who I am. My brain is much more female than it is male. That’s what my soul is. Bruce always telling a lie, lived a whole lie about who he is and I can’t do that any longer.”
He also said: “Yes, for all intents and purposes I am a woman … but my heart and my soul it is part of me that part of me that female side is who I am. I was not genetically born that way. As of now I have all the male parts … in a lot of ways we are different but I still identify as female. That is very hard for Bruce Jenner to say, because I don’t want to disappoint people.”
