"Bruce" jenner, woman of the year? Really? Women not happy...feel insulted.

 'Women Cry Foul as Glamour Magazine Names Bruce Jenner ‘Woman of the Year
The politically correct Glamour Magazine has reportedly waived the one defining requirement of candidates for its “Woman of the Year” honor—a double X chromosome—in conferring the title for 2015 on crossdresser Bruce Jenner, a move many women are finding insulting.

The magazine is expected to formally announce its choice of Jenner as woman of the year, along with actress Reese Witherspoon, on November 3.
Criticisms are already piling up from women who find the choice of Jenner to be demeaning, and are falling into two main camps. First, out of all the real women in the world, could Glamour not find one worthy of the title of Woman of the Year without needing to fish in the male pool of boys dressing as girls?
Second, what in the world has Jenner done in the past year—other than get a makeover—that qualifies him as a model for achieving woman around the world?
In a stinging commentary, Nicole Russell writes that by choosing Jenner as woman of the year, “Glamour endorses the idea that men are better at being women than we are.”
Russell compares Glamour’s insulting maneuver to a cover of New York Magazine featuring transgender Martine Rothblatt as the “highest-paid female CEO” in the nation. “Apparently real women can’t cut it, so we’ve got to import men into our ranks to win awards,” Russell notes.
“Jenner might feel like he is a woman,” she writes, “he might want to be a woman, he might be living as a woman, but thoughts do not generate biology or reality.”
Australian-born feminist Germaine Greer accused Glamour of “misogyny” in its decision to award Jenner its woman of the year award, noting that transgender women are “not women” and do not “look like, sound like or behave like women.”
“I think misogyny plays a really big part in all of this,” Greer said, “that a man who goes to these lengths to become a woman will be a better woman than someone who is just born a woman.”
Meanwhile, writing for Celeb Dirty Laundry, Andie Howard channeled the anger of readers who “want to know what bruce did besides transition from male to female in order to deserve the honor.”
“In 2015, Bruce Jenner became Caitlyn Jenner and it took a lot of courage to transition in such a public way. That said, does Caitlyn deserve to sweep every award show for having gender reassignment? What else has she done?”
Or, as writer Laura Meyers put it, “What has Caitlyn done for womanhood other than simply become a woman?”
“It’s what she does as a woman, to overcome struggles of womanhood, to advance womanhood, to inspire womanhood, that deserves an award,” Meyers writes, noting that Jenner “hasn’t even made a sandwich yet.”
Meyers compares Glamour’s unfortunate choice with the woman who carried home the award last year:
You know who won Woman of the Year last year? Lupita Nyong’o. Not only does Lupita have boobs like Caitlyn, but this woman was born in Mexico, raised in Kenya, attended college in the United States, graduated with a Bachelor’s degree in film and theater studies, and recently just won an Academy Award for Best Supporting Actress, receiving a standing ovation at the ceremony for her performance. That’s what she did for womanhood. As a woman, that’s a hell of lot more inspiring than Caitlyn’s transformation.
----------------------
I don't find myself agreeing with Germaine Greer to often but in this case, for the sake of my daughters, I have too.
I was talking to someone about this boy dressing up as a girl, to get his own reality show, (that's my personal opinion), I noticed they weren't comfortable about the subject but expressed themselves under what was "imposed" on them, political correctness about how they should think and express themselves. I reminded them that in my house we freely express our opinions and leave the b*llshit of political correctness at the door.
That said, I asked them, "how do you feel about a man, dressing up as a woman, trying to take what rightfully belongs to you, and all women of the world? You don't have enough things you have to deal with in this world, now you have to compete and move aside for this guy?"
Finally, they openly said what was truly on their minds, "I don't care what he is on the outside, inside he is still a man and all of the women are actually insulted by him been related to who and what we are in this world. Unless he can experience giving birth, he's not a woman".

Out of respect and love for my daughters, I always told them, they can achieve more in this world by been women, femininity has it's own power which can compete on an equal level with men, than been angry all the time as feminists are. Let them waste their time adding negative connotations, alongside everything else their pessimistic live offers. This feminine power is a gift men will react to, positively. A man, has his own character, and if he uses it as a positive, then things will work out for him also. As long as both meet in the middle and recognize their gifts as an important part of life, that will bring equal respect faster than attacking each other.
A man who dresses as a woman, claims he is one inside will lack that true feminine gift.

So, I do agree with what is said up above, out of respect for my girls, life is hard enough for them, that they don't need to compete with someone who will never experience the true meaning and hardship of been a woman, has never achieve anything as a woman other than putting on a dress.
It must be really insulting to women, some run corporations, dedicate their lives to raising kids, forgoing their careers, or even the woman in Africa, who goes out earning pennies a day to feed her family, the waitress, the home cleaner, the nurse, the doctor, I could go on and on....
(yes men sacrifice also, but for now this is about our women)
The statement “Glamour endorses the idea that men are better at being women than we are" is right on, some guy once said, "Give to Caesar what belongs to Caesar" a long time ago, in order to respect the women in our lives, we men have to say it also, "give to women what belongs to women".

I mean, someone please explain to me, what bruce jenner ever did to advance women's place in the circle???? Maybe I just missed it somewhere?
Personally, I recognize one woman to be woman of the years, she takes care of 3 boys and 2 are autistic, she never complains, always there for them.That is the Woman of the year.

TNC only offers an opinion and does not condemn anyone's choices.
