Kyle Jenner, the youngest member of the Kardashian/Jenner clan, is set to make her first appearance on the The Ellen DeGeneres Show later today (Monday 30th), in a tell-all interview which spans from her experience of accepting her father's new identity to considering herself to be an example for her generation. Which I suppose, in a way, she is.
The clip begins with Ellen probing Kylie over how she coped with the news of her father’s transition. When asked whether it was a lot to deal with, the 18-year-old commented that surprisingly, their bond is now closer than ever.
“I feel like it was. It was the only thing I really bottled in. I don’t bottle in a lot of things and I feel like my family was a little upset about that, but I got through it and now I almost I like it a lot better honestly…I like her better than Bruce.
“We talk about makeup and clothes we bond a lot more, but not only that. I feel like there’s not a huge secret in the family. I feel like there was always this big secret. And I’ve honestly known about it for a really long time and we actually caught him then dressing up as a girl. When my sister and I were like 6 and 7 maybe. So we’ve known for a while that there was something, but it was never talked about.”
You can say what you want about the Kardashians, but from where I’m sitting it’s hard to deny that they’re a tight-knit bunch. Processing unconfirmed ideas regarding your father’s identity at such a young age only proves how solid this family unit truly is.
Plus, the fact that they are all so openly supportive of Caitlyn’s authentic self, is really helping to squash the confusion and thus discrimination surrounding the Trans community.
“Honestly, like I’d be with my girlfriends sometimes and he then would come in and be like what are you guys talking about and kind of joke around and I knew there was something, but now I feel like we hang out a lot more there’s no secrets. She’s really living her authentic true self. And I feel like that’s awesome and also I want to be someone from my generation to like be an example because I think that’s so awesome and I think that other girls and boys my age will maybe see that I’m so accepting and be accepting of other people too. ”
