Bruce Jenner has two sons–Brandon and Brody Jenner–and both are outraged over the insensitive photo of the Keeping Up With the Kardashians star’s head photoshopped onto the image of a woman on a recent InTouch magazine cover.
The photo was accompanied by the title, Bruce’s Story: My life as a woman, and featured the former Olympian wearing lots of red lipstick.
Bruce Jenner’s face was superimposed over that of British actress and former Dynasty star Stephanie Beacham’s.
In addition to Brandon and Brody Jenner, the tabloid cover and article outraged many others, too.

Janet Mock, is an American trans author, journalist and activist. She’s made no bones over finding the cover and article highly offensive. After berating the publication for hinting that being either a woman or being trans is offensive, she had the following to say.
‘”Here’s a headline: Bruce Jenner is whoever Bruce Jenner says he is,” Mock said during a recent interview.
Brody and Brandon Jenner found the cover shot and article not only insensitive to Bruce Jenner, but to the LGBT community as well.

“The magazine cover didn’t come as a surprise to the brothers, but they both feel it’s very insensitive to the LGBT community,” a source told RadarOnline.
“Both Brandon and Brody are both very strong supporters of LGBT people. They’re standing by their dad through this. In the meantime, Brandon and Brody will continue to support their dad, and if he does indeed make the transition to being a woman, their feelings for him won’t change.”
Bruce Jenner has even garnered support from his ex-wife Kris Jenner, who called the entire incident ‘mean.’
Fortunately for Bruce Jenner, he doesn’t really seem to care about what the tabloids print. His friends claim he pays no attention to what is written about him.
Do you think Bruce Jenner will one day come out as transgender or is all this hype simply much ado about nothing?
