In a new interview, Caitlyn Jenner opens up about the details of her new book, The Secrets Of My Life, due to hit stores this week. In the interview, she describes her emotional transition, confirming her gender reassignment surgery, and she also talks about the Republican Party and how she would feel if her daughter was transgender.
She had little to say about the surgery other than was the last step in her journey to womanhood. Jenner calls it “The Final Surgery” and only added that she was “extraordinarily comfortable with myself.”
As to his thoughts on Trump and the Republican Party, Jenner says: “Yeah, I’ve gotten criticized because I come from a more conservative Republican side, but my loyalties are not with the Republican Party. My loyalties are not with Donald Trump. I’m not a one-issue voter. I believe in limited government. I like lower taxes. I like a thriving economy. I like everybody working, but my loyalties are with my community and to make it better,” Jenner said. “The Republican Party has very [much] disappointed me over the years.”
As far as hew new memoir, Caitlyn says her goal was to “pour my heart out on everything.” She adds: “What I was trying to accomplish is, one, get it all out for myself, so there was no other secrets left, but two, it was the way I dealt with my stuff.”
Jenner dedicates the book to her father and her brother, both of who have passed away. She doesn’t think her father would understand her transition, but she is ok with that knowledge.
“Somebody asked me the question the other day, what if Kendall came up to you and said that she was trans and wanted to transition into a guy, and I went, achhhh, my little angel, you know, my cute little girl. That’s tough for a parent. I get that,” Jenner says referring to Kendall Jenner.
But in conclusion, Jenner is much happier now. “My life is so simple now. I just get up, be myself, get ready, go out, do my thing. I’m very motivated so, yeah, it’s all good.”
