Caitlyn Jenner thinks it’d be ‘tough’ if daughter Kendall wanted to transition
Caitlyn Jenner has revealed that she would be shocked if her daughter Kendall came out as transgender.
The former Olympic athlete told FastForward that she would find it “tough” if her 21-year-old daughter, Kendall, wanted to transition.
Recalling a time when someone once asked her what she would do, Jenner said:
“I remember one time somebody came up and they said, ‘Oh my god, what if—okay, what if Kendall, my darling little girl, came up and said that “I’m trans and I’m going to transition into a guy’.”
Jenner explained: “My first reaction is ‘Oh my god’. My little Kendall, my cute and adorable little girl? The initial shock of it was tough, but that’s what parents go through and I understand that.”
“So it’s tough on everybody,” Jenner added.
The 67-year-old, who came out as transgender in April 2015, recently said that she had considered becoming a politician to fight for LGBT causes.
She told the BBC that Trump’s approach to LGBT rights “doesn’t make me regret my vote yet,” but that his actions, which include revoking guidance protecting trans students, were “very disappointing”.
Jenner said her “deal-breaker with the Republican party” was that “if you mess with my community – you don’t give us equality and a fair shot – I’m coming after you.”
She emphasised that she was searching for ways to “do a better job for my community, in bringing the Republican Party around when it comes to all LGBT issues.
Jenner revealed that she had once considered suicide before she came out.
The reality TV star struggled when celebrity gossip sites were openly speculating about her status.
