Caitlyn Jenner has revealed the one person with whom she could find solace when the Internet started speculating her ever-changing looks before she opened up about her transition.

Bissinger wrote that the talk had struck a chord with Caitlyn because of the similarities with how she had been dealt with on the Internet, adding that she had in front of her five pages of notes.

Bissinger explains that Jenner gave her own version of a Ted talk, opening up honestly about everything she had been through before and after her facial feminization surgery.

He added that his heart bled for Jenner, who was so earnest and has essential goodness, noting that mistakes had been made, ones that caused terrible scars, but as many others had said about him, they emanated from following a path of least resistance as well as a hatred of confrontation.

Lewinsky tweeted her support for Jenner-
