I have a message for Caitlyn Jenner. You need speech and voice training ASAP. This is what happens when someone undergoes costly cosmetic surgery to look like a woman and neglects their speech and voice training so they continue to sound like a man. In essence, they are defeating their purpose like you, Caitlyn Jenner are doing.
Caitlyn sounds extremely masculine with her deeper voice.Her gestures are very masculine as she points with point fingers a la “cowboy shoot em up style. ”
She is overly dramatic and seems to sound like a caricature of herself as she said “Let Washington hear you loud…… and…. clear. “It sounds contrived and over the top.
And not to be mean, but if you are going to get millions of dollars from MAC Cosmetics with your own makeup line. for goodness sakes learn how to do your makeup as it looks like a racoon with dark under eyes and white on your cheeks and nose that looks like you were pelted with flour. Blending is the key to any good makeup job so get MAC to send you over one of their top of the line MAC makeup artists to do your MAC makeup for you.
And stop talking about other people’s insecurity when your own insecurity is glowing like a neon light. Your body language screams insecurity.
And lose the botox as it makes you look devilish when you try to animate your face. Since your voice lacks animation, you desperately need your face to do the job to relay emotion and facial inflection.
And before you call anyone a DISASTER, clean up your own backyard, as your voice and your body language are a HUGE DISASTER!
Your body language is very masculine as your steps are too large as you clump around instead of walking like a woman. Your gestures are way too broad and large, which is anything but feminine.
When you had the first season of your show I offered to help you sound more feminine. We even met on the first season of your show as the intention of the episode I filmed which never aired was that I was, by producers request, supposed to warn you about not having surgery on your voice. During the filming as you recall I gave you an intensive overview session. I looked at the tape you did with Diane Sawyer with you when you came out and showed you masculine and feminine behaviors you exhibited.I did an comprehensive analysis of your speech and voice patterns so we could see where were needed to focus in terms of your communication skills.
I tried to encourage you and show you a few exercises for the camera’s sake, since that is what your producers wanted. But my aim was well beyond being on camera with you. It was to sincerely help you sound like a woman- something I have done with hundreds of transgender clients throughout the years. I know how important this is to all transgender clients. But in your case, it apparently does not seem that important. This is confusing to me as you are the first transgender client I ever had who’s primary aim, besides breast and genital surgery, was not to work diligently to feminize their voice and speech patterns.
After only one session together, you went to the national media and say how you felt you sounded like a man when you got the Arthur Ash award. I immediately messengered a letter over to your home in Malibu letting you know that you cannot be so hard on yourself and that you after all, had only had one session. In that letter, I encouraged you as I specifically outlined what you needed to work on voice and body language wise.
I never heard back from you. I then heard thru the media grapevine that you were working with a transgender voice coach. To me that was like the blind leading the blind. Not because they were transgender but because they did not have the professional experience and expertise. In any event, I wished you well and hoped it would work out. But clearly it has not worked out.
To put it bluntly, you sound like a man wearing women’s clothing. Had you taken the time three years ago, to diligently work with me or with anyone else for that matter who was a qualified professional, by now you would have sounded like a woman.
As a spokesperson for the LGBT Community you clearly need to pay attention to your voice and demeanor. Otherwise you are defeating your purpose.
