I Am Cait Recap 8/16/15- Family Interference
“I Am Cait” is striving to be the show that educates everyone on what it is like to be transgender, wealthy or not. It is not an easy road as we have seen via some of the women that Caitlyn met on her road trip. You can keep up with the docu-series “I Am Cait” right here.
Caitlyn Jenner, I really think, had no idea how hard it would be to learn how to be an appropriate female after being of male gender for sixty-five years. She has learned that her voice would not garner a feminine pronoun on the phone, bathing suits are scary when you still have not gone through with the whole gender surgery and not everyone has the same story as you. A group of trans women gathered at Caitlyn’s Malibu home so that she could learn what it was truly like to be in this community. One thing she knew was that she wanted to be a role model but in order to do that, she had to get to the nitty gritty and the dirty of the lifestyle. Her friends took her on a trip where she was able to meet women less privileged than her who had to turn to sex in order to get by. Caitlyn really has to walk a mile in these women’s heels to fully understand what transgender people go through when they do not have easy access to doctors and hormone therapy.
Getting into a bathing suit was a huge deal for Caitlyn who had yet to wear a feminine suit. But I think she looked great in her one shouldered white one piece. That was a real “coming into herself” moment because then she was really exposed though the “Vanity Fair” cover was pretty open. Now it is time for Caitlyn to meet the younger generation of transgender children and hope to help and inspire. She will meet up with Chaz Bono, son of Sonny and Cher, to go to a youth hospital in California to further understand the community and attempt to help. At the same time, Caitlyn’s step-children from her marriage to Kris Jenner confront her about some things that she said in her VF article that were not particularly favorable when it came to Kris.
Keep reading to see what happens when Caitlyn and Chaz get together.
