Though all the Kardashians have been mega supportive of Caitlyn Jenner‘s tranisition, Khloe Kardashian admits that her and her sisters are holding on to the past…a bit.
The Kardashians often call Caitlyn “Bruce,” and they think that that’s okay.
“We don’t like to say that Bruce is gone, per se. We, my sisters and I, we will call Caitlyn ‘Bruce,’ and we’ve been told that’s completely fine,” the reality star, 31, told Australian TV show The Project on Thursday while promoting the Kardashian Kids clothing line.
“She has told us we are allowed to call her any name we want to. Because on the phone, when she calls me, it’s the same voice as Bruce. And if I’m not physically with her, it’s hard to remember in the moment that I’m talking to Caitlyn, if that makes sense.”
I think calling a trans person by their past name can be considered disrespectful, families often find their own comfort zones in private where names are concerned.
“There was a hard time for the entire family, that we were all transitioning with her, but in front of an audience,” KhloÃ© said. “That’s not really the normal way to go about it.”
She added: “There is a lot of raw emotions, that it’s hard to do in front of a camera. For us, we were trying to be really open and raw with it, I think. We all got through it and that’s completely over, it’s all behind us now. So, we are just happy for her. We just want her to be happy. But there was definitely a moment that was really tough for all of us.”
What do you think- should the Kardashians knock this “Bruce” stuff off?!
