WHAT’S NEXT FOR CAITLYN JENNER: “MOTHER OF THE YEAR?”
Glamour magazine has been scratched off a lot of subscription lists since they named Caitlyn Jenner one of their “2015 Women of the Year.” After the award event, the husband of a female cop killed on 9/11 send BACK his wife’s posthumous award after Glamour gave the SAME award to Jenner. He asked “Was there NO WOMAN in America or the world more deserving than this man?” And we loved him for that. After accepting the award, Caitlyn remarked “The hardest part about being a woman is figuring out what to wear.” This irked many women, among them- Rose McGowan. Rose ranted on Facebook- addressing Caitlyn, she wrote ”You do not understand what being a woman is about at all. We are more than deciding what to wear. We have had a VERY different experience than your life of male privilege. Being a woman comes with a lot of baggage- the weight of unequal history. Woman of the Year! Not by a long shot!” Rose emphasizes that she is NOT transphobic, but like many woman she resents a man putting on high heels and declaring himself female. There’s a LOT MORE to being female. Frankly, we don’t think Caitlyn should have ACCEPTED that honor- we could have admired her for THAT humility.
