SheKnows sat down with a group of opinionated youngsters to chat about Caitlyn Jenner’s transformation. The pint-sized panel was first shown a picture of Bruce Jenner and then a photo of Caitlyn, and then they were asked to describe both. The kids called Bruce “strong” and used words like “calm,” “confident” and “happy” to describe Caitlyn. After weighing in on both of the pictures separately, the participants were asked an important question. “What would happen if I told you they’re the same person?” Most of the kids pause for a moment, some seem confused, but in the end almost all of the children express their support for the person Caitlyn is today. “Who she wants to be, is who she should be,” one girl simply states. “It’s important for you to be yourself, because if you are yourself, who are you?” another child offers as the final words of wisdom.
