Caitlyn Jenner Apologizes for 'Man in a Dress' Comments

Caitlyn Jenner has written a lengthy blog post to apologize for comments that she made about her appearance in a recent interview for Time.

“I think it’s much easier for a trans woman or a trans man who authentically kind of looks and plays the role,” the 66-year-old former Olympian said in the interview. “I want to dress well. I want to look good.”

Here is what Caitlyn wrote in her blog post:

“This week a lot of attention was brought to my comments in my Time interview, in which I said that my appearance is important to me, that I want people to be at ease when they encounter me, and that people are still uncomfortable if a trans person looks like ‘a man in a dress,’” Caitlyn wrote. “I think I caused a lot of hurt with this comment, and I’m truly sorry.”

“What I was trying to say is that our world really is still a binary one, and that people who look ‘visibly transgender’ sometimes can struggle for acceptance and may be treated poorly by others. And while this may be true, it’s also something that needs to change,” she added.

“My comments probably made it seem like all I care about is fashion, or makeup, or appearance. I can tell you I really enjoy all of that—it’s who I am. It’s the world I come from, and as a person in the media I have certain expectations for myself,” Caitlyn said. “But I am only one person. There are a lot of ways of being trans. And I want to help create a world in which people are able to express their gender in any way that is true and authentic for them. And most importantly – a world in which how a trans person is treated isn’t dependent on how they look.”

    But Bruce Jenner is just a man in a dress. He never had the surgery to remove his penis and testicles. He is a man with Breast Implants who likes to pretend he is a woman named Caitlyn Jenner.

    Let’s not pretend that all of Caitlyn’s “journey” has been much more then “appearance”. Far from the first time he/she has referenced looks, clothes, make up etc. I think a majority of folks were opened to Caitlyn in the beginning but the truth/appearance is that this is just a fame, money making, award receiving and self fulfilling enterprise. I look to people like Laverne Cox as a real representative of trans folks and their struggles. She is more deserving of the attention the some Kardashian cast off

    All “Caitlyn” cares about is appearances and how she dresses. That’s the only thing I got out of these documentaries she’s been doing. It’s all about her clothes, shoes, nails, hair. Nothing about being an actual woman in today’s society. So it’s not a lie when she says just a man in a dress. Because that’s all this seems to be. Bruce isn’t fooling anyone.

    Buffalo Bruce strikes again.

  • person

    So Bruce thinks he is or at least looks like an actual woman, because he is a billionaire with lots of pampering time. So he does the mani pedis and waxing and makeup. And all that jazz. And he still looks like- a man in a dress. Even if he dismembered himself ( please don’t bruce) and got a fake woman part, he would still be a man in a dress with his body parts chopped up. He just is a man,

    further proof that it’s all about the surface for her.
    I am sorry for all transgenders who have to have the media parading her as a role model when she is not one.

  • laura

    I don’t understand why she apologised, anyway. You may disagree with her, but that’s her opinion and it’s not a lie. She didn’t say anything wrong when commenting about how most people feel when they see someone who’s not exactly binary.

    Bruce digs a bigger hole to fall into every time he opens his mouth.
