People are wondering how Caitlyn Jenner now lives her life. How did her change affect her family life? ‘I am Cait’ show was about that. But suddenly the channel cancelled it. Do you want to know why?
On July 26 American television channel E! had a premiere of a documentary reality show ‘I am Cait’ about the life of Caitlyn Jenner, who (until recently) was known as Bruce Jenner.

What is transgender?
The word ‘transgender’ brings together people with diverse gender identities other than cisgender (such as when psychological sex coincides with the biological). It’s more correct to say not ‘transgender’, but ‘transgender men’, ‘transgender women’, ‘transgender people’. They describe their own condition as ‘female soul in a male body’ or ‘male soul in the body of a woman’. They can perceive themselves as people, to which socially accepted notions of gender identity do not apply. That means they do not feel neither male nor female. The researchers found that at the age of 5 years old with the help of tests, you can determine how the child identifies his gender role.
It happens that a person born a man dates women by a certain age, but at the same time he feels he is a woman. After the change of sex this person will also continue to date women, but she is going to be homosexual. However, such a person may not experience sexual attraction to both sexes. Gender identity is not related to the sexual orientation: transgender, like everyone else, can have different orientation. Transvestite is a person, more or less frequent dressing and behaving as a representative of the opposite sex. Usually, they do not have a desire to correct sex.
