Caitlyn Jenner would have ruined (her) whole life if shed transitioned as a child.

The 74-year-old star who has six children and four stepkids from her three marriages came out as trans in 2015 but she doesnt regret not going through the process to change gender earlier in her life, because she is so proud of all she achieved as Bruce Jenner .

Asked if she envies how much easier it is for those with gender dysphoria to access help and support from a young age now, she told the Daily Telegraph newspaper: Heres the deal. I would not want to grow up in todays society.

Our society that we grew up in, we had the luxury of being naive. We didnt know everything. I couldnt even find a therapist, I was in my 30s before I could find a therapist, the first person that I ever talked to about it, and it was ridiculously difficult finding someone.

Today they just go online, couple of clicks, and boom you find 100 therapists.

Now, if I was growing up today And I had my maths teacher in sixth grade talking about gender ideology and I would be sitting there in the classroom and thinking, Holy c, theyre talking about me! and then theyd send you to the school shrink and theyd say, Well, you know, youre gender dysphoric and you need to correct that right now and you need to get on hormone blockers, and Id say, Is that what I need to do? and it would have ruined my whole life. Ruined it!

Thered be no sports, no Olympics, I had wonderful families, wonderful kids, I have had a phenomenal, phenomenal life. I have no regrets whatsoever.

Asked what shed tell campaigners who suggest shed have had a better life if shed transitioned earlier, she added: No. Totally wrong! No! I had my life and I had a phenomenal life. I transitioned when it was the right time for me.

Caitlyn still feels she has little Bruce inside of her and she still holds her former self in high esteem.

Asked if her memories of winning Olympic gold are diminished by the fact she was a man at the time, she said: Bruce. Did. Great!

I hold him in high esteem. I am extraordinarily proud of everything he was able to accomplish in his life.

Im extraordinarily proud of Bruce being a great father to 10 children. Every one of my kids has lived extraordinarily productive lives. Theyre good citizens, theyre good people, theyre good parents.

Im proud of that section of my life, there was just always this thing inside that I just couldnt get rid of.
