Gabbi Tuft, the former WWE star, has been embracing her newfound freedom after recently coming out as a transgender.
Gabbi Tuft Opens Up On The Challenges Of Coming Out As A Transgender
She previously operated as Tyler Reks before going on to leave the sport. And now it seems Gabbi is living life to the full. In a post to her fans on Instagram, she let everyone know how the transition has been going. She said: “There are certain physical aspects that assist me in being more confident and feeling as though I’m closer to my physical goal than I already am.”
One physical part of her body that she has yet to get used to is her breast area. She has been frank in the past on how she wants to embrace her new identity, not just on the inside but also on the outside. That is why she made the full transition and went ahead with the surgery. That has not come without its challenges, though.
She added: “Some of it though, is a direct result of the lack of confidence I feel without breast forms. Without them, I have previously tended to keep my eyes down as I walk, act more shy, and overall be more introverted.” But having now seen more enhancements in her body, it has started to become a lot easier to deal with.
In addition, much like her previous attitude in the ring, Gabbi has adopted a similar no-nonsense approach to any criticism that has come her way in light of the transition. She continued: “BUT – my biggest moments of growth have always been when I’m at the precipice of a life-changing moment, and I say to myself, “Oh well, f**k it.” There have been calls from other sports to cater more towards transgender rights, most notably within the athletics field.
While that has not produced many tangible changes, Gabbi is seeking to change that. She sees herself as a role model and wants to inspire the next generation of wrestlers to fully embrace who they are. And she signed off her post in that manner: “Do what you need to feel confident. Learn to love yourself in the process. When you’re ready, remove the crutches. I love you all.”
