Fortunately, as time continues to pass, more and more celebrities are confidently deciding to live their truths and begin the process of transitioning. As of late, Elliot Page, the well-known actor from The Umbrella Academy, has been in headlines and on social media for sharing his journey and decision to transition. 

Caitlyn Jenner has been another influential celebrity to set an inspirational precedent. The celebrity first became famous after winning over the country and her fans during the 1976 Olympics. Much later down the line, the world fell in love with Caitlyn Jenner all over again on Keeping Up with the Kardashians.

With such a large platform, when she made her exciting announcement regarding her gender, she received a tremendous amount of support and encouragement from her fans and followers.

As for her family, that, per usual, was a different story. Take a look back at Caitlyn Jenner’s journey to become Caitlyn and why some fans of Keeping Up with the Kardashians feel like Kendall Jenner is being wronged. 

Caitlyn Jenner’s decision to transition

Since Caitlyn Jenner’s exciting announcement revealing her decision to transition the celebrity has been incredibly open and candid about her experiences.

In interviews, Jenner has shared that as a young child she knew something about her was different, and she would often want to wear her mother and sister’s clothes. However, it was the 1950s, and information and resources were limited. 

Many fans of Keeping Up with the Kardashians may be curious about the actual timeline of events. 

The timeline of Caitlyn Jenner’s transition

As ET has shared, in 2013 Kris Jenner revealed that she and Bruce Jenner would be separating. Just one year later and the divorce became official. 

Caitlyn Jenner began to have secret surgeries and returned to hormone therapy. People began questioning Kris Jenner about the rumors of her ex’s possible transition, but the infamous mom manager didn’t seem to know much, as Caitlyn Jenner seemingly wanted it.

Later down the line it would become clear that Jenner was afraid of this meaningful and momentous information leaking before she was ready.

Why Caitlyn Jenner Didn’t Spell Her Name With a K

Caitlyn Jenner probably had more than a few good reasons to be leery to confide in the cast of Keeping Up with the Kardashians, but, after all, they are still family.

The release of Caitlyn Jenner’s The Secrets of My Life did cause some friction and tension between the family, and Kris Jenner wasn’t very quiet about it. However, not all of the family should get a bad rap. 

This Reddit thread gives a shout-out to Kendall Jenner for often standing up for Caitlyn Jenner.  One of the comments in the discussion read, “I feel bad because it seems like Kendall is the only one to stick up for Caitlyn too but its definitely not reciprocated (saying Kylie was her favorite daughter to the media, ignoring her when they hangout because she wants to chill with Kylie, etc.).” 

Even though fans and viewers of Keeping Up with the Kardashians don’t believe Kendall Jenner is receiving the credit she deserves, Kendall Jenner can always count on her loyal followers to show up and show out for her.
