Bruce Jenner's sex change has been reported on for months with little more to go on than rumors and appearance. Both the Kardashians and Bruce himself have been largely silent about the reported transition, but Kendall Jenner gave the most definitive confirmation yet backstage at Justin Bieber's Comedy Central roast.
Kendall told Us Weekly:
"I love my dad. He's always been there for me and my sisters. He's a wonderful man. And just because he's changing shoes now, so to speak, doesn't make him less wonderful. I will always love my dad, whether he's a man or a woman."
That's the attitude we should all have about Bruce's transition (although you don't have to love him). Discussions about his sex change have veered into judgmental, mocking territory, demonstrating the discrimination that the transgender and LGBTQ community at large still faces. It shouldn't be surprising that Bruce has taken his time in coming out to the world.
Update: 3/18/15 (3:43 p.m.): Kendall Jenner is denying the quote entirely.
how is it legal for someone to "quote" someone and publish it if in fact you never said what was quoted.— Kendall Jenner (@KendallJenner) March 18, 2015
Update 3/19/15 (3:37 p.m.): Us Weekly looked into Kendall Jenner's allegation and decided to retract the quote. Here's the statement in full:
On Wednesday, March 18, Us Weekly published on UsMagazine.com an interview with model and reality star Kendal Jenner entitled "Kendall Jenner Breaks Silence on Bruce Jenner's Transition: 'I Will Always Love My Dad.'" The interview was allegedly conducted by an independent freelance journalist at the Saturday, March 14, taping of Comedy Central's roast of Justin Bieber in Los Angeles. When Ms. Jenner denied, via Twitter, that the interview took place, Us Weekly immediately reached out to the freelance reporter. He stood by the interview, and continues to maintain that the quotes are accurate. However, after attempting to reconfirm his account, editors of Us have concerns about the veracity of this interview and the circumstances under which it was obtained. We would like to retract the story entirely and have removed it from our website. We sincerely apologize to Ms. Jenner and her family.
