Joannie Chorjel - @flooowerchiiild - reached out to us with a beautiful message to share. She had just finished @caitlynjenner’s memoir, #thesecretsofmylife, which pushed her to stand up for herself, and be true to who she is. In that vein, she decided to come out as bisexual. Here is her story! . "Last night I finished Caitlyn Jenner’s book 'The Secrets of My Life.' . I started reading it because I always liked the show KUWTK (reality television is my guilty pleasure) and it seemed like her transition happened over night on the show. I was genuinely curious about how she decided to come to terms with her gender identity after living as a cis male a majority of her life. Which is not the case at all! She struggled with GD since early childhood! . If I’ve taken something from this book; it’s do not deny who you are. I did not come to terms with my bisexuality until I was like 19 because I felt like it was wrong, although I knew I was bisexual since early JR. High. Even my closest friends would tell me “oh you’re following a trend, you’re just confused” I felt like I had to grow up; marry a man and have children. (I do want to marry someone and have children; and if it’s a woman, we’ll talk about those alternative choices when the time comes) . I guess what I’m trying to say is that her book has given me the validation I needed to live my life on my own terms (when it comes to that aspect). . My preference in people by no means defines who I am; and I am not ashamed like I felt growing up. I don’t wear my sexuality on my sleeve, it’s not my style. Writing this on a social media status for all my friends and family to read is kind of a validation moment for me. So, ya. I’ll probably never feel the need to talk about this again but the book had given me a lot of insight on myself. Books are powerful if you fall into the right one. Never stop reading, friends! 📖"
I’m often asked what genre of books I like to read. This photo sums it up really, I don’t have a favourite genre. Susan Carland inspires me, under such scrutiny she published such a strong story about #islam the stigma around Islam disgusts me. Yet another story of a MINORTIY ruining it for the MAJORITY. I have nothing but respect for her and her husband #waleedaly Love or hate the #kardashians and #jenners Caitlyn Jenner continues to use her profile to better the understanding and acceptance of the #transgender#community again there’s still so much stigma surround the Trans Community. This continues to astound me. #13reasonswhy#jayasher#fightinghislam#susancarland#thesecretsofmylife#caitlynjenner
I am currently reading Caitlyn Jenner’s book, The Secrets of My Life, and she wasn’t kidding when she said she held nothing back. She walks the reader back to where it all began – as a troubled, insecure boy growing up in Conservative America and growing into a public image with private shadows. There’s so much I’m learning about the woman who used to be Bruce Jenner and about the struggles of the transgender person, how unique these struggles are from the average LGBT individual, and yet how similar. It’s a very interesting book, but then I happen upon some lines that bear absolutely no humour, but I find myself seeing the ‘gay’ in them. For instance, she had this to say in Chapter 3: “I go to my first football practice. Although I have played quarterback in high school, I have also played a lot of other positions – running back, a little receiver. On defense I play safety, and it is my best position. It’s a lot more satisfying to hit than to get hit. I can throw the ball fifty to sixty yards without much problem. The greater question is where exactly throw it. Receivers, in my experience, are often fleeting objects that suddenly disappear.” Now, can somebody please tell me I’m not the only one who sees gay sex roles, safe sex and bottom shaming all neatly tied up in that paragraph. lol #caitlynjenner#thesecretsofmylife
