If you think Caitlyn Jenner misses her life as Bruce, you'd be wrong. Caitlyn confirmed as much in an interview with Ellen DeGeneres, to air as part of the season premiere for Ellen's talk show. The interview also marks Caitlyn's first public interview since the Diane Sawyer interview from earlier this year.
"Absolutely, no," Caitlyn said when asked if she missed life as Bruce. "Because as a woman I can do all this fun stuff anyway. I can still play golf. I can still go race cars."
The past few months for Caitlyn have been nothing short of a whirlwind, though she makes a point of recognizing that she has been very lucky and that her experience is unlike those of many other men and women in the trans community. "There's nothing better than to wake up in the morning and be able to be your authentic self," Caitlyn said.
Besides being an outlet for Caitlyn to introduce herself to the world, her TV show I Am Cait also serves as a place of learning for her and the audience. "The things I've learned over the last few months [have] just been overwhelming," Caitlyn began. "My experience is very different than anyone else's."
Caitlyn also revealed that she is growing in her political views. As she continues on her personal journey, her understanding and view of issues like gay marriage continue to also change and grow.
"As time goes on like a lot of people on this issue I've really changed thinking here to I don't ever want to stand in front of anybody's happiness. That's not my job," she offered.
