In her forthcoming memoir The Secrets of My Life (out April 25), controversial Republican trans woman Caitlyn Jenner has revealed she had her “final surgery” in January — and it went well.
“The surgery was a success, and I feel not only wonderful but liberated,” she writes in the new memoir, out April 25.
The 67-year-old former Olympic gold medalist claims she came clean so fans will stop asking about her nether regions.
“I am telling you because I believe in candor,” she explains. “So all of you can stop staring. You want to know, so now you know. Which is why this is the first time, and the last time, I will ever speak of it.”
Earlier in the book, Jenner calls the surgery a “complex decision,” due in large part to the health risks associated with the operation.
I actually really like how she said that, and how she explained her decision to address the topic; far more articulate than Radar, which went with, “Bye, bye penis!”
Say what you will about Caitlyn — and you will — but her transgender journey was not for attention. She is a woman now, albeit one whose political views make me sick.
