VIDEO: Caitlyn Jenner offends her friend in new I Am Cait clip

2015-08-28 20:00

Los Angeles - Caitlyn Jenner says she wants to be treated like a "normal woman" by men.

In a clip from the latest episode of her E! reality show I Am Cait, the Olympian makes the admission to her friend, transgender activist Jenny Boylan, however, her choice of words upset the English professor.

Caitlyn says: "It would be very attractive to me to have a guy treat me like a woman."

Jenny responds: "What do you mean by that?"

Caitlyn says: "Uh, that you would be treated like a normal woman."

The 65-year-old reality star further explains her 'normal woman' phrase, adding she wants to be treated "like any other woman on the street, and not make it this big trans thing, or this or that. Just a normal relationship".

Caitlyn's comments shock Jenny, who promptly informs her that she is indeed "normal".

The GLAAD national co-chair says: "So, you know what, Caitlyn Jenner? You are a normal woman, right now, today.

"You don't need a man to make you a woman. A woman can make you a woman. I think it's a thing that women do: we look to men to give us self-worth.

"Now that you're in the sisterhood, you have gone to such trouble to be a woman; don't be a stupid one. Be a smart one."
