For many, Caitlyn Jenner’s transition may be a hard pill to swallow, but SheKnows shows us how simple the situation really is by discussing it with children. Their honest and pure reactions will not only make you realize how society molds people into opinionated, small-minded jerks, but will give you that extra dose of inspiration you need today.
First, they were shown photos of Bruce Jenner.SheKnows
And described it with “Really strong arms” and “Doing track and field.”
Then, they saw a photo of Caitlyn.SheKnows
They said things like: “Happy.” “Calm, confident, happy.” “She’s in charge.”
They then learned the two were the same person.SheKnows
“Who she wants to be is who she should be.” “If that’s how she is then I guess that’s fine.”
They were told some people had good reactions.SheKnows
“I think they’re really being empathetic to her situation.” “Like, what if this were happening to me? If I was the one that was going through this?” Seriously, these kids don’t look like they’re older than 10.
And bad ones, such as “Jenner is a sick man.”SheKnows
“I think they’re just scared of change.” “Maybe they’re like, ’Oh my gosh, this person is taking such a big step in life,’ and they don’t understand what it feels like to just be who you want to be.” “The people who are saying that are afraid to change themselves.” And wait for it: “If you’re not yourself, than who are you?”
The love is real. #BeYou
