“I Can Handle Anything” – Caitlyn Jenner Covers “The Advocate” Magazine’s February/March 2016 Issue


Reality TV star Caitlyn Jenner gets candid with the Advocate magazine as she covers the February/March 2016 issue.

In it the 66-year-old talks about how coming out has been for her. See excerpts below.


On the fears she had just prior to coming out as trans: “All those things certainly go through your mind. But it’s natural. You’re going from such a strong image – male, athletic, superstar, Wheaties-box iconic kind of stuff – and leaving that to go to, quote, ‘to the weaker sex’…certainly, I don’t see it that way. And although I really felt like I was doing the right thing, and I’m so happy that the response has been good, I was afraid I would really lose something in my life. But my main concern was really only my kids. I don’t want to do anything to embarrass them.”

On criticism about things she’s said about being a woman: “What does this whole thing mean to me? …There’s more to being a woman than hair and makeup. So recently, I’ve been trying to study up on it. My publicists’ assistant told me to read this book [How to Be a Woman by Caitlin Moran]. It’s actually very good and very funny. What I realized, when going through this book, is how my experience is so different than what a normal woman’s would be growing up – that’s obvious. The second chapter was about having your period. OK? I will never deal with that. So there is so much in life that I need to learn about who I am and be authentic with myself. But I never want to assume that this whole thing called womanhood, that I could ever experience all of that. I will be able to live authentically as female, but I’ve missed so much.”

On looking good as a celebrity: “Kimberly [Kardashian West] says, ‘If you do go out, you’ve got to rock it, baby!’ You cannot let [the paparazzi] get that picture. They’ll take a picture of you with no makeup on, lousy outfit – and they’ll use it forever. You’ll never get rid of it. Kim’s very good at that stuff. It does take a little bit more work if you do go out. You’ve got to at least look good, at least the best you can. But there’s more to life and womanhood than just that. And those are things I’m learning; I’m trying to read up on it. I’m trying to understand it because it’s all new to me.”
