Bruce Jenner last November. Many young people know him only from the Kardashian TV show and not from his heroic achievements in the Olympics a few decades back. I discussed that laudable history.
In the past year, Bruce has undeniably set course on a journey toward female identity. He's been keeping publicly quiet about the subject up to now, but it appears he's getting ready to open up. He's negotiating terms of a blockbuster interview with Diane Sawyer. Expect it in a few weeks.
I hope this transition goes well for Bruce and that the subject isn't ridiculed or mocked. Transitioning is always hard; doing it in public is doubly so. Tabloids have already staked out his comings and going, and one even photoshopped his head onto a woman's body. If there's public interest in his story, they will continue to post unflattering pictures of him.
An event like this could educate many about an important subject. Let's hope the story becomes a positive influence in society.
