Caitlyn Jenner is arguably the most widely known celebrity transgender. She rose to fame following her highly publicized transition from Bruce Jenner to Caitlyn Jenner in 2015. Her reality show I Am Cait has launched soon after.
Fast forward to the present, and Caitlyn Jenner has had to endure a lot of negativity stemming from her decision. Starting with her I Am Cait Show, it was canceled in August last year following a sharp decline in viewer numbers, at one point having about 480,000 from a peak of about 3,000,000 viewers, when it was launched.
And then there is her ‘breakup’ with members of the Kardashian clan. Just recently, Caitlyn revealed that she hadn’t spoken to Kim Kardashian for some time, especially following her transition, stating, “To be honest with you, I really haven’t talked to her in a long time. I’ve kind of let everything calm down, so I kind of keep my distance. I’m out right now trying to make a difference in the world.”
Rob Kardashian and Khloe Kardashian have apparently had a hard time dealing with Caitlyn Jenner’s transition, and have not been communicating with her. And just a few weeks ago, she had to face the harsh reality of being transgender, and that is the existence of people who discriminate against the transgender population. This was while on her UK tour to promote her book The Secrets Of My Life. Caitlyn was leaving the LGBT Awards in London when she was met with transphobic abuse. This was just hours after receiving the Loud and Proud award. The reality star was clearly shaken, according to numerous reports. The following is an excerpt from The Sun Online on this.
“The police were called and they confirmed on Saturday morning they were investigating the allegation of a hate crime. Caitlyn was left shaken following the shocking incident at the glamorous bash which was also attended by Katie Price, Jade Thirlwall and Alesha Dixon.
“It put a cloud over the evening where the 67-year-old had just hours before collected her Loud and Proud award. Caitlyn had an amazing night and when she won her award the room went crazy. She’d had such a wonderful time but as she went to leave the whole atmosphere changed.”
That said, she has had to sacrifice a lot to be the person she wanted to be, from undergoing numerous complicated surgeries to enduring endless trolling on social media. About the surgeries, the following is an excerpt detailing this.
“Caitlyn Jenner has endured endless rounds of bewildering surgery, including a nose job, breast surgeries (on and off), a tracheal shave (removing the Adam’s apple), facial feminisation surgery (her jaw has been broken into a thin fairy triangle) and, finally this January, The Chop (more of which later).”

On her sex life, she revealed during an interview with The Times that she was never good at it and never really comfortable with it when married to Kris Jenner. The following is part of the report indicating this.
“She [Caitlyn Jenner] is not good, for example, at sex, she says, and has no ‘appetite for it’. She was never ‘entirely comfortable’ having sex with Kris, as sex meant ‘giving, and while I believe I am better now, I have never been good at it’. She has only slept with five people in her life and was married to three of them. When she says she is now not hugely interested in relationships with either sex, I believe her.”
