Navigating the World with a Gender-Fabulous Child

Bruce Jenner is a HERO

I know that Jenner spoke about helping the LGBTQ  community during the interview  last night. I am so glad Jenner did! the interview  was done so amazingly  well and my heart bursts with joy for Jenner and every other Trans* woma, man and child who will benefit from how eloquent  and genuine Jenner was.
I knew that with Diane Sawyer  being a part of this, it would be done with the utmost  class and dignity. However, she exceeded my expectations. I don’t think she really should have asked Jenner about the SRS, BUT I also think that I need to keep in mind that not everyone  knows what is appropriate  or inappropriate.
I think that an important  thing for the trans* and cis community  to take away from this is that Jenner struggled for DECADES and even thought about suicide … Jenner didn’t go through with it though. Couldn’t  go through with it.
I implore  those in the trans* community  to follow Jenner ‘ s lead and live to see another day.
I implore  those in the cis community  to have an epiphany … BRUCE JENNER, famous, an Olympic  hero … almost committed suicide bc this was so tough, imagine how this process is for those who do not have fans. “We are going to change the world”- Bruce Jenner
