Nightie Night

80e48bb8dfcca1a5a77f071062d19a97-1



Did you watch the Diane Sawyer interview with Bruce Jenner a couple of weeks ago?  I watched the whole thing live, and truth be told it made me cry.  It just sucks that so many people don't feel free to be who they are.  Bleh.  Life is hard enough without having to fake your way through it putting on a facade just to make things easier for others.  But I am happy Bruce has been willing and able to at last publicly admit what he has felt inside for so long. I hope people accept and appreciate his decision, and just let him be free to live his life as he sees fit. 

The boyfriend also watched the interview, and we discussed it at length.  I felt the need to interrogate him during our conversation, and our discussion went something like this:

Me: So.....do you ever feel like you are a woman inside?  Do you wish you could be a woman?  Would you like to wear dresses?  Any thoughts on getting a sex change?  If you have ANY of these thoughts, please tell me now.  

Him: (laughing) Um, no.  

Me: No, what??????

Him: (laughing) No, I don't feel like a woman inside.  No, I don't want to be a woman.  No, I don't want to wear dresses.  No, I don't want a sex change.  Satisfied?

Me: FOR REALS?  Are you CERTAIN?  Because now is the time to tell me if you have any "womanly" inclinations!!!!!

Him: (laughing) NO.  I AM ALL MAN.  

So I thought that was the end of it, and I decided to stop badgering him and let it go.

I spent the night at his house on Saturday, and was packing up to leave the next morning when the boyfriend walked out WEARING MY NIGHTGOWN.  Internal scream!  I couldn't even speak!  I sat speechless with my mouth agape as he waltzed into the living room in my nightgown and did a little twirl.  !!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

Of course he was pleased as punch at leaving me in horror, and he laughed and told me he was just messing with me.

DYING - so funny!

I watched the special as well. I felt awful for him. I did cry too -when they showed the moment that Kris Jenner was ragging on him about dressing like a gram-pa. That guy has been through the ringer...

I have not seen the interview BUT I did read about it and always thought and continue to think - the best of Bruce.

How funny! I didn't watch the interview live but I saw some clips online and read most of the transcript. I think (hope) that there's starting to be more acceptance/tolerance for different sexualities these days. Even ABC Family is spreading that message with their new series set for this summer, "Becoming Us".
