Actress, Songwriter, Television Personality, Linda Thompson has come out to support her ex-hubby, Bruce Jenner, by writing how she lived and parted with Bruce Jenner knowing he had gender dysphoria.
The mother of Jenner's two sons, Brandon and Brody Jenner, wrote an emotional piece in the Huffington Post telling how she kept Jenner's secret from his sons and the world till now.
"...After having harbored his secret, and feeling in my heart and mind that I have protected him through these years, I can now breathe a little easier, knowing he now has found the strength and the courage to fulfill his dream. He can finally realize his need to be who he authentically is, who he was born to be. That takes tremendous courage. For that I commend him," she wrote.
Continuing, she wrote, 'Bruce has already "gone through the fire," suffered unfathomable discomfort and pain, been held prisoner in his own flesh. It is certainly not our place to judge him or others who may feel trapped, ostracized, or alone.
'My hope and my prayer is that humanity has evolved enough and been properly educated to exercise kindness toward those who have struggled or who we may perceive to be "different." Our uniqueness, our individuality, and our life experience molds us into fascinating beings. I hope we can embrace that. I pray we may all challenge ourselves to delve into the deepest resources of our hearts to cultivate an atmosphere of understanding, acceptance, tolerance, and compassion. We are all in this life together,' Thompson wrote in part.
