The thing is: Caitlyn isn't a 21 year old. I get that she never got the experiences of a female youth. I get that she is authentically feels feminine. But there is so much more to being a woman than lipstick and heels. We don't sit around all day and paint our nails and look at fashion magazines. Well, most of us. It's almost like she looks at females and our relationships with one another as a big pillow fight and then we try on each other's clothes. That we aren't much deeper than that.
The book recaps what we already know about her discovery and fierce attempt to hide her self. The sheer struggle is heart breaking. I can't imagine how lonely that is. And this was a time before acceptance, before support groups or internet searches. That is truly magnificent, to know what Bruce was carrying on his shoulders and he still was able to channel that secret into magnificence.
Caitlyn tells us how Kris isolated him from his family but it's not like she held him in a cage. That is where I was the most frustrated. I get there was some control there, but own the fact that you let it happen. What the wives knew, what they didn't, I don't think she is lying. At all. I think she is telling her story. Maybe her truth doesn't jive with someone else's perspective, but that doesn't make it wrong.
The book was well written, although not anything too new or unexpected, and I think too soon in her journey. I really would have liked to read how Cait took missteps and remedied them. Explored her gender a little more.
But I don't give a damn about which make up line she endorses. And I am a very feminine woman:)
