And she couldn't be happier.Vanity Fair interview as Caitlyn, she explained how liberating it felt to finally be open as a woman: "I have nothing left to hide. I am kind of a free person, a free soul. Up to this point, I would wear, you know, Bruce would wear sweatshirts with hoods on them so paparazzi can’t get pictures and all that kind of crap."
Caitlyn insists that she is a nicer person than ever now she has transitioned.
Yet, despite Caitlyn being happier and more popular than ever...Kendall and Kylie.

"My dad is my dad, but he’s not there physically anymore. But she lets me call her dad -- that's the last little piece of dad I've got."

There has been a noticeable strain in Caitlyn's relationship with her daughters.And Kendall has remained loyal to her mom, Kris, during her parents' feud. “Kendall is loyal to Kris[Jenner] and has very little to do with her dad.

The controversy surrounding the sisters started last week...
via: Getty ImagesKylie and her supermodel sister Kendall have a popular fashion line named Kendall + Kylie and the clothes are available at a wide variety of popular retailers including Nordstrom, ASOS, Macy’s, and even Amazon. And this is where things start to get problematic...
Their fashion line is reportedly owned by Global Brands Group.
Rick Darling, CEO of Global Brands Group wrote about this in a letter dated March 21, 2020:
So many of these workers now have no income and in a lot of cases, no government assistance due to their immigration status.Remake," is lobbying to hold these brands, and the celebrities who profit from them, accountable for this.
Their #PayUp campaign was initially launched in March...
Now, fans are calling on the celebs themselves - including Kendall and Kylie, to pay up.
Under a tweet Kylie recently posted about a new line of masks on her beauty website, one user replied: “You have billions but you are refusing to pay poor women who make your clothing for minimum wage in Bangladesh. Hope you are taking notice."

Remake also points out those disproportionately affected by the pulled contracts are people of color.
“Our fashion is brought to life by human hands, most of which belong to black and brown women who work 10-12 hour days and live paycheck to paycheck. [The pandemic] has attacked both her life and her livelihood," the organization writes on its website. “Many live in crowded urban dwellings and take congested transportation to get to work. Facing dwindling orders, many factories around the world opened up this month, forcing garment makers to come back to work despite rising infection rates."

But it gets worse...
"Until we receive clear answers from the team that KENDALL + KYLIE have proof they paid garment makers, we will not back down."
So, people are essentially furious that Caitlyn can publically state how proud she is in spite of everything that's gone on in the last week...
