Caitlyn Jenner admits it “bothers” her that she still sounds like a man, despite transitioning from male to female earlier this year.
In a new WhoSay blog post on Monday, Jenner confesses it was hard to watch last week’s ESPYs speech back because her voice isn’t quite as feminine as she’d like. “It was a little difficult for me to watch myself. While I felt like I looked great and that the gown looked fabulous, I still have a voice issue,” says Jenner. “It’s not quite right compared to my feminine appearance. That bothers me a little bit.”
Jenner, however, said she hopes people won’t focus on “the pitch” of her voice, but will instead pay more attention to what she said during her acceptance speech for the Arthur Ashe Courage Award. “There is so much misunderstanding of this community that I’m in. People don’t understand trans issues or gender identity issues,” explains Jenner. “Now I’m in a position to try to explain it to people, to try to get them to understand that these are serious issues that affect a lot of people. That’s what my mission has been from the beginning and I hope that I achieved that at the ESPYs.”
