In a bid to connect with her fans and followers, Caitlyn Jenner is giving everyone the opportunity to ask her anything on her website. To announce her latest post, Caitlyn shared a photo of herself on social media holding up a calendar that reads, “Day 1: Stop bullying today,” and captioned the photo:
“So thankful for the positive outpouring. I’m excited to start answering some of your awesome Qs. Love you all!”
One of her fans named Kim asked Caitlyn what her “favorite part” has been since her Vanity Fair Magazine cover, (click here if you missed it), and she answered:
“Just being able to be myself.” Describing a trip she went on with her “new friends,” Caitlyn gushed that it was incredible to just be herself the entire time and no one else.
“I packed for the first time—as just Caitlyn, nobody else—which is the first time I’ve ever done that. I was gone for five days and had such a fantastic experience with all of these girls who have all been through the same thing,” she writes on her site. “We had so many stories to tell. We had so many things that we were all dealing with. It was just truly a liberating experience.
“I knew then that I could never go back.”
Considering the wide acceptance ‘she’ appeared to have garnered following the gender transition announcement on Vanity Fair, everyone would guess that Cait has been having an amazing time since coming out as a transgender woman, however, she admits to another fan that it’s been an eye opener to see the hardship some other transgenders have had to go through.
“It’s been both eye opening and difficult to see firsthand what so many members of the trans community have had to go through just to be themselves,” she explains.
“I hope to help raise awareness of these hardships so that it becomes a less painful process going forward.”
But she’s keeping an optimistic attitude.
“That said, the future looks bright,” she continues. “I knew that my transition would get some response, but I certainly never expected all of this. It’s honestly been incredibly positive.”
