Caitlyn Jenner & Kim Kardashian Explore the ‘Feminine’ Voice
The voice is deeply personal and speech patterns helps us to identify each other, so it’s no surprise that one of the questions people have for others who are transitioning is often: “Will you change the sound of your voice?”
In a humorous but poignant moment on the promo for the next episode of Call Me Cait, Caitlyn Jenner and Kim Kardashian discuss her father’s desire for a feminine voice. Caitlyn even admits that in the past when she was staying at a hotel, she would call up the front desk and put on her best “feminine” voice in an effort to receive a “yes ma’am” in response. “I could never do it,” adds Cait.
Daughter Kim then challenges Cait to give it another shot, filling in as the role of the front desk. Caitlyn gives it a go – but doesn’t seem to adjust her voice that much, prompting Kim to cut her off and chock the attempt up to a failure. “You sound no different,” laughs Kim.
Although Kim was clearly joking with her father in the moment, Caitlyn later admits how important finding the truest sound to your own voice can be for someone. “Women cannot relate to the whole voice thing. They don’t see it as being that important, when it is that important. Not only to speak and order and do all that stuff, but very important for your soul that you’re feeling good about that.”
