It is an incredible display of absurdity.
Glamour Magazine just awarded Woman of the Year to somebody who is not a woman, and is not deserving in any way.
Caitlyn ‘Don’t Call Me Bruce’ Jenner was given that award last week – the same award that was given to a 38-year-old woman who was killed during the attacks on 9/11, after she rushed back into the towers repeatedly to try and save others.
The accomplishments of the two hardly seem comparable.
And the husband of the 9/11 hero basically told Glamour they can shove it, shipping the award back to the publication.
Via New York Post:
The husband of a cop killed on 9/11 returned his wife’s posthumous Woman of the Year award to Glamour after the magazine gave the same honor last week to Caitlyn Jenner.
James Smith told The Post he yanked the award off the shelf in his Long Island home dedicated to his wife, Moira, and FedExed it back to the magazine.
Moira, who died at the age of 38 after rushing into the south tower, was honored by the magazine a month after her death.
But after Jenner, 66, was anointed last week, Smith told the magazine’s editor, Cindi Leive, to take the award and shove it.
In the letter to the magazine, Smith asked “Was there no woman in America, or the rest of the world, more deserving than this man?”
He then went through a long list of potential candidates more deserving than the reality TV star pretending to be a woman:
“At a time when we have women in the armed forces fighting and dying for our country, heroic doctors fighting deadly diseases, women police and firefighters putting their lives on the line for total strangers, brave women overcoming life threatening diseases . . . the list of possibilities goes on . . . is this the best you could do?”
A Glamour spokesperson stood by their choice of Jenner saying we “recognize women with a variety of backgrounds and experiences.”
Apparently those ‘backgrounds and experiences’ for women include totally not being a woman.
