Caitlyn Jenner shocked a friend and transgender activist by saying she wanted to “Find a man who would treat me like a normal woman”
The reality star, 65, lets the surprising admission slip during a sneak peek of this Sunday’s episode of E! show I Am Cait, telling her friend Jenny Boylan that “it would be very attractive to me to have a guy treat me like a woman.”
When a visibly surprised Jenny asked “What does that mean?”, the former Olympian attempted to explain herself, but just caused further offense.
“That you would be treated like a normal woman” Jenner relied.
That prompted a puzzled Boylan, who is chair of GLAAD to ask “What do you mean, a normal woman?”
“Like any other woman on the street and not make it this big trans thing, or this or that. Just a normal relationship.” to which Boylan replied “So you know what, Caitlyn Jenner? You are a normal woman, right now, today,”
“You don’t need a man to make you a woman. A woman can make you a woman”
“I think it’s a thing that women do: we look to men to give us self-worth. Now that you’re in the sisterhood, you have gone to such trouble to be a woman; don’t be a stupid one. Be a smart one.”
Jenner had previously told Diane Sawyer in April that sexuality and gender identity were “apples and oranges” and that she was not attracted to men.
