Although the younger generation knows the name Bruce Jenner from E! Keeping Up With The Kardashians TV reality show as a somewhat hen-pecked older guy back in the day to many of us, Bruce Jenner was our hero. He was billed as "The World's Greatest Athlete" and all of us wanted to be just like him.
It is hard to believe, based on stereotypes, that now, at 65 years of age, Bruce wants to transition into what he feels he has always been--a woman.
Close to 20 million people tuned into the much discussed Diane Sawyer interview on ABC's 20/20. It would be pretty hard not to be moved not only by his story but by the outpouring of love and support from his family.
It will be interesting to see how this story plays out and what effect it will have on the transgender community and the public's perception of this still growing segment of society.
