    When Olympic gold medallist decathlete Bruce Jenner decided to become a woman, it created quite a stir in the past. Father of five kids, including Kylie and Kendall, two of the Kardashian sisters, Jenner had multiple procedures to obtain her feminine appearance. Before undergoing the most significant procedure of all, breast augmentation, Jenner had her beard trimmed and received breast implants.

    Jenner stated, “The surgery was a success, and I feel not only wonderful but liberated,” in her book “The Secrets of My Life,” hoping to serve as an inspiration for others who are hesitant to admit how they feel about themselves. Therefore, why even think about it? since a penis is all that it is. Other than what I’ve already mentioned—the ability to take a whiz in the woods—it has no particular powers or uses for me. All I want is for everything to be perfect.

    The former elite athlete, however, still believes that the “old Bruce” is still inside her.

    Jenner was born on October 28, 1949, in Mount Kisco, New York. She struggled with dyslexia as a child, but sports ultimately saved her life. She was interested in and accomplished in a variety of sports as a child, but track & field was her strongest sport. Jenner had a football scholarship from Graceland College in Iowa, but she switched to the track squad due to an injury.

    Ever since their school days, Jenner experienced issues with gender identity.

     

    Jenner recollected, “I look at guys and I go, ‘He’s comfortable in his skin.'” And I said to myself, ‘Wouldn’t that be a great way to live?’ I often think to myself, “Oh my God, how lucky are they that they can wake up in the morning and be themselves,” when I look at ladies. However, I’m stranded here in the midst.

    Jenner surprised everyone by winning the Kansas Relays in 1971. She then qualified for the US Olympic squad the following year and placed ninth in the Olympic Decathlon held in Munich. Although she was proud of her accomplishment, she also realized that she could have done a better job. As a result, she started a rigorous training program and practiced for eight hours every day for the next four years.

    Eventually, she geared up for the 1976 Summer Olympics held in Montreal, Canada.

    At the age of 26, she won the decathlon at the Olympics, setting a new world record with 8,618 points on July 30, 1976.

    Jenner’s Olympic gold medal gained enormous significance in the context of the turbulent time that followed the Vietnam War, the Watergate crisis, and other major national concerns. Jenner became something of a superhero, a representation of the tenacity and might of the American people.

    Jenner stated, “I see a confused person at that time, running away from my life… with big-time fear,” in an interview with ABC. I was incredibly afraid. At the moment, I had no idea what lay ahead for me.

    “That is me. That is her,” she added, referring to her gender identity. “[you can be a woman] and still kick butt.”

    Jenner’s popularity opened up a lot of opportunities for her, and she started starring in TV shows, movies, and commercials. But she was someone else beneath the façade that at the time was Bruce Jenner. Seven years before her Olympic triumph, in 1971, Jenner wed Chrystie Scott, her undergraduate love. She was devoted to helping her then-spouse fulfill their Olympic aspirations, so much so that Scott worked as a flight attendant while pursuing an evening job selling insurance.

     

    In 1978, Burt, their first child, was born. After two years, they welcomed Cassandra, their second child. But by the time Scott became pregnant, he and Cassandra had already broken up.

    In an interview with ABC, Jenner disclosed that her first wife was likely “the first one to know” about her struggles with gender identity.

    Jenner said, “I didn’t go heavily into it back then.” “These are my problems,” I uttered. That’s what I handle. And they believe that I engage in a small amount of cross-dressing, a small amount of this and a small amount of that and that everything will work itself out. 1981 saw then-After Bruce Jenner wed Linda Thompson, the two boys, Brandon and Brody Jenner, were born. Within five years, they got divorced. After divorcing Linda, Jenner decided to get professional assistance since she was struggling with depression. As part of her transition process, she underwent electrolysis to eliminate facial hair, started hormone therapy with estrogen, and decided to get a nose job by the late eighties.

     

    But at 39, she decided to stop the process. Jenner wed Kris Jenner in 1991. Kendall and Kylie Jenner were the couple’s daughters, and they were married until 2015. After the 2007 premiere of the reality series Keeping Up With The Kardashians, the family experienced tremendous success. Four months after getting divorced in 2013, Jenner carried on with her transition without telling her children.

    “That night I thought, ‘Oh, it’s, like, over. Heart’s pounding… and I thought wouldn’t the easiest thing to be right now,” Jenner recalled.

    Even though Jenner is a woman now, her children Kendall and Kylie still refer to her as “dad” on occasion. I am aware that when we spoke a few years ago, you agreed to us continuing to refer to you as dad. In a video that was uploaded to her YouTube account, Kylie asked Jenner, “How do you feel about that now?” regarding her feelings at the time.

     

    It was, in my opinion, one of my better choices. Jenner responded, “This community can be harsh at times, especially when it comes to pronouns, and everyone has an opinion. whatever, I’ve always felt that everyone may do whatever they see fit, and I have to do it the way that works for me. “You’re the mother,” others could remark, but I’m not. I am their father, always have been, and will remain so until the day I pass away or they pass away.
