On April 24th, 2015, Olympic athlete and reality TV dad, Bruce Jenner, was put on the hotspot when he finally talked about a speculation that had been covering newsstands and social media. It was finally time for him to admit his biggest secret: his transition into life as a woman.

This announcement might have come as a surprise to most people, but to Bruce, it was something he had struggled with for almost a lifetime.

Talking to reporter Diane Sawyer on a special 20/20 interview, Jenner finally admitted, “I am a woman” to millions of people who had speculated for a long time. The stories were finally put to rest, but in a collective manner that didn’t include Jenner to admit anything he wasn’t comfortable with sharing.

“I’m not stuck in anybody’s body, it’s just who I am as a human being,” Jenner commented. “My brain is much more female than it is male.”

Many people have come out with many negative comments to this story, saying how ‘disgusted’ they are about this new transition, and how ‘disappointed’ many will be. However, it is something that has been going on for years. This isn’t new, and Jenner wanted to let everyone know of his intentions– this wasn’t a publicity stunt in the slightest. It was a public service announcement to those who are in the same position as him, the transition stage.

“What I am doing is going to do some good, and we’re going to change the world. I really, firmly believe that.”

Just in this year, President Obama was the first president to ever say the words ‘transgender’, which is a huge step in society and shows an optimistic future for our generation, and generations after us.
