Wikipedia added thus: ‘While she has undergone some cosmetic surgery as part of transitioning, she has not ruled out gender reassignment surgery, and feels life as a woman is primarily a matter of mental state and lifestyle. She said she has never been attracted to men and has always been heterosexual, but currently identifies as ‘asexual.’

It added that Jenner has released a new verified Twitter handle, @Caitlyn_Jenner, tweeting the cover and the message, “I’m so happy after such a long struggle to be living my true self. Welcome to the world Caitlyn. Can’t wait for you to get to know her/me.”
