I absolutely respect Bruce Jenner’s decision to finally become who he’s always felt he is; that being said, I feel that he owes more to the family (families) he’s built than to do this at such a late period in all of their lives. I hesitate to use the word selfish because that isn’t what I think this is about. But he has the money and obviously, now, the ansite desire to transition so why not do it before now? When there are so many people who love and know him as Bruce, and not a female version? Kris’ is so lost , I feel for her! At the same time I feel for Bruce and how tough all of this is for him as well. I am not judging, just showing my concern for the ramifications of his de ion at this point and time.

I am watching the show leading up to the Diane Sawyer interview and it’s very emotional, for me as well as Bruce’s family. I just hope everyone involved is able to move past the upset in the family and continue to love and support each other. Father, bless all of them and grant them peace.

I agree with you. Bruce is very brave to do this and I think he’s been very concerned about how this will affect his kids. He has done everything he could to make sure they are okay. He and Kris raised a loving, loyal family. Everything has been done through Bruce’s therapy for their benefit. The family will be fine and Bruce can be happy in his body for the first time. Everyone wins!

What about babies who are born with both male and female genitalia — external, internal or a little of both? Often parents must make an election at birth how they want to raise their child Male? Female? These decisions are made after consulting with geneticists, pediatric specialists, etc. And from that point on, the baby is sometimes given hormones at various stages of growth. Sometimes surgery is required. Mother Nature doesn’t always get it right. Imagine being born this way, and what if your parents make the wrong choice about how to proceed? This is a no-win situation. It is not for us to judge what Bruce Jenner decides to do at this point. He did what was expected of him by society, by his parents, his partners, his children — all under the shroud of confusion and struggle.;For all of us who have not been in this situation, we should be grateful.

I think Bruce Jenner is being honest with the world. I know it is hard for him to admit to something of this nature. A person feels what they feel. There are so many medical issues that people deal with everyday that others do not understand and this is one of those. He is not guy, he feels as though he has female tendencies. I know lots of people like that, doesn’t mean their sick. It is natures way of messing up. Don’t feel sorry for him this is his truth within coming out. Hats off to him for being an honest person.

I think this is absolutely disgusting. Bruce is 65 and this absurd. He should have taken his issues to the Lord in prayer. He looks like an idiot “changing” his life, his children’s and grandchildren’s lives by wanting to be something he CANNOT BE. He was born a man so that’s what he is. The world needs to pick up a bible. This is SICK

Not everyone has the gift of knowing the Lord personally.. If you want this person to seek out the Lord… then encourage him to do so in a positive way. Personally I think he’s messed up… who knows why, other than the evil that occupies this world.. but really, not everyone has the gift of knowing the Lord or understanding what the Lord intended.. Sometimes it’s not quite so black and white and easy.. I’ve friends of many walks of life and Jesus instructed us to love one another.. You do NOT have to love what they do, but being judgmental certainly won’t help him or any of us for that matter. Judge not lest ye be judged!

Vonna, your ignorance is amazing! It is, however, on par with your grasp of grammar and spelling. Why would anything Bruce does he any of your business? I must ask what you think he’s not being truthful about? I’m curious. I think this is something that took great courage to go public with. I admire him for being so concerned about his family. I do think he hurt his kids by doing it, but he is trying to address any issues and in the end, this loyal, loving family will be just fine. Oh, before I go, see this dot. . That’s a period. Most of us use it to end a sentence. Now if you could figure out to apply it correctly, you might be as smart as an eight year old.

Bruce Jenner: An Olympic Gold Medal Winner, now retired, and ready to be Free. Nothing is more satisfying than Freedom in all aspects of life! You are an amazing human being, one who had the courage to come forward with an educational and sensitive description of what you have been going through all of your life. You have now given hope to many others struggling with gender identity, also hope to many parents struggling with their child saying he/ she feels different than the gender they were born with. You have not only helped many adults, but also children who might have suffered for years, because the parents didn’t understand what they were going through or thought it was a phase. I applaud you for allowing yourself to be free of the emotional pain you must have been going through, and live a normal and happy life. I applaud you for sharing your story with the world so that they too can realize it’s alright to have the Freedom that they deserve. You have now explained to everyone, the paparazzi the media, and everyone else needs to leave you in peace to enjoy your life with your family!

I think what we are witnwssing here is the evidence of a Godless, faithless, & incredibly selfish mind getting his heart’s desire. When a person abandons God, they abandon common sense, & faith; Bruce in reality is insulting his Maker. GOD DOES NOT MAKE MISTAKES, WE MAKE MISTAKES. It doesn’t matter if Bruce is a man or woman Bruce, along with the rest of us, will be judged by God. Whether a person believes in God or not, you will still be judged. It’s a real shame these rich people choose to live such selfish & evil lives when they can help others who are truly suffering. SHAME.

God does not make mistakes? Really?

What about children born without limbs, organs, or eyes? Why don’t you “pray” over that, you fool. Nature can and does make mistakes. Look around you.

Transgender Nazi. Love that . Everyone accept Hollywood ‘s lifestyle because they have it all together. They are all happy and accept themselves. Money does buy happiness.

Once Bruce is a female will he be complete and happy?

Bruce has given his interview to Diane Sawyer, which I found to be enlightening and worthy of sympathy. Unless you are an expert in gestation, genetics, chromosomes, etc., we can’t pretend to know anything of what it must be like to appear one way on the outside but be the complete opposite on the inside.

That said, if Bruce Jenner wants to escape the scathing judgments that have been abundant, he needs to completely divest himself of KUWTK and lead a quiet life, away from the notoriety that comes with living in Malibu & having TV cameras in your home. He should do his very best to stay away from paparazzi. He’s re-inventing himself. Now is the perfect time to “blend in” and get out of the spotlight. But maybe he likes it. If so, then he needs to stand up to the critics. People can be so cruel. I don’t think he can have it both ways.

Reading some of these comments really upsets me! For anyone to want someone to be unhappy within their body is a sad day and you should really think how you can be so judgmental about someone you don’t even know. Good on you Bruce! Team BRUCE all the way. He deserves to be happy and it’s just bullies out there who think otherwise.

Bruce keeps saying how happy he will be as a woman. But he also says that he is not interested to be intimate with a man or a woman. It seems that he is only interested in wearing women’s clothes. So why didn’t he becomes a transvestite? He can even get a job doing that.

Bruce is a deluded old queer who is being held up as a role model whereas the reality is, he is a negative model for boys who may be having difficulties accepting themselves as male – research shows that the vast majority grow out of this and accpt themselves as male. The remainder (most aren’t rich like the pampered Bruce) go on to live lives subject to discrimination, suicide and poor opportunities (many turn to prostitution).
Who would want that for their sons? Boys need to be protected from the negative influences of people like Bruce. The world is sick to promote his life as a positive lifestyle choice…

Carl, research AKA “science” actually shows that men who feel compelled to transision from male to female actually have an extra female chromosome which makes them feel more female inside, because they are! I hope you don’t have children of your own. I would hate to have such a judgemental man as a father. If it weren’t for people with attitudes like yours, perhaps people in the transgender community wouldn’t live lives subject to discrimination, suicide, and poor opportunities, often turning to prostitution as a last resort for survival. Boys and girls do not need to be “protected” from people like Bruce, rather, they need to be exposed to all kinds of different people so they don’t end up judgemental bigots.

I did read on anoher site where people like you who demand that everyone adhere to your point of view on this issue are really Transgender Nazi’s. I am entitled to believe that an intentional choice like changing your outward appearance to mimic the opposite sex is a poor lifestyle choice. I wouldn’t want a son of mine to become a freak when he has no need. It is misandry (hatred of males) to encourage boys to change their sex to a female.
You are actually the bigot, wanting me to change my view, in the belligerant way you come across – like a Transgender Nazi. That’s a great phrase to describe you

Please don’t confuse Bruce Jenner with having Klinefelter syndrome if he had this he would not have been able to have biological children . Iam a Christian and I don’t judge Bruce Jenner or any homosexual or transgender they do need love and acceptance and so does every human being because we are all children of God. And we all have issues.

XXY chromosomes in a male = Klinefelder Syndrome – Bruce J does not have Klinefelder. You don’t just “have an extra female chromosome. Good Lord.

Gender is a social construction. We are all brainwashed from when we are very little to believe that that boys wear blue and girl wear pink. Does it really matter how you look on the outside?
Jenner has done so much more in his life than dress up as a woman. He won a decathlon( that is HUGE deal!, produced a popular t.v show (albeit a little trashy…but popular nonetheless), and successfully raised a bunch of children. He seems to have been a good father who provided for and did not abandon his children. He even continues to have a good relationship with his X wives.
It’s not just what’s outside that counts. Carl, and some of you haters out there seem to have SO much fear about bending the rules to our gender socialization… you seem so nervous about it… like its a monster in the closet. RELAX! the world will go on and people will keep on doing great things in life regardless of how they look from the outside.
