No matter how you feel about her, Caitlyn Jenner is unquestionably a brave person.
The 70-year-old, who was born William Bruce Jenner, made a daring announcement in 2015 that she would be transitioning from male to female. After coming out as a trans woman, Caitlyn faced criticism from people who wanted to tear her down all over the world.
However, she insisted that she had battled gender dysmorphia since her youth and was fully serious about making the transition between sexes after divorcing Kris Kardashian after a 23-year marriage.
Her name was legally changed to Caitlyn Marie Jenner in September 2015, and she underwent operations to change her body’s proportions to make her look more feminine.
According to reports, Caitlyn underwent facial-feminization surgery, which may have involved correction of the hairline, shaping of the forehead, and shaping of the jaw and chin.
She underwent beard removal, breast augmentation, and gender reassignment surgery before making the biggest leap of all.
Writing in her book, Caitlyn said: “The surgery was a success, and I feel not only wonderful but liberated. So why even consider it? Because it’s just a penis. It has no special gifts or use for me other than what I have said before, the ability to take a whiz in the woods. I just want to have all the right parts.”
Of course, some people continue to make fun of Caitlyn and her desire to feel completely at home in her own skin. But it seems like Caitlyn gets closer to putting her detractors to rest once and for all with each year that goes by.
The 70-year-old’s decision to wear makeup in public for the first time while competing on the British version of I’m a Celebrity, Get Me Out Of Here was perhaps the most encouraging development in this regard.
When it was revealed that Caitlyn would be entering the Australian jungle to participate in the program, which typically features B and C-list British celebrities, heads turned. When Caitlyn unveiled her natural beauty to the world, everyone’s eyes were immediately drawn to her stunning appearance.
In fact, some fans were so taken aback by how stunning she appeared that they wondered if she had broken the rules and been sneakily using makeup.
How do you feel? Caitlyn Jenner certainly looks stunning without any cosmetics on. Her decision to follow her heart has motivated millions of people to do the same, so more power to her.
