My rule has been in these situations that if a person hasn't declared they are trans, I consider them cisgender until that declaration happens. Until Bruce has that press conference, rumors about a Jenner transition are just that, rumors.
TransGriot, February 2, 2015 ''Moni's Take On The Bruce Jenner Situation'
That's what I said two months ago about the developing media hype fest around Bruce Jenner.
Tonight that hype has been turbocharged by the start of yesterday's May ratings sweeps month and speculation fueled by Jenner's silence on the subject until the exclusive Diane Sawyer interview that will happen on ABC's 20/20 at 9 PM EDT.
I think much of the ambivalence I and a lot of the trans community is feeling right now is because of the way this situation has been handled.
It also has many of us nervous, at a time when we have unprecedented attention to trans issues and right ling legislative attacks on us about how this interview will turn out.
Now if it turns out the Jenner interview confirms what is being speculated and gets some positive reviews, Trans World will breathe a big sigh of relief.
