On Caitlyn Jenner

I tend to stay away from political & religion posts and generally anything that gets people all pissy because I don't care to hear the drama but I keep seeing all these ridiculous things pop up on Facebook and around the blogging world about Caitlyn Jenner and the Woman of the year award.

First... I think people need to realize that the anger directed at Caitlyn Jenner for accepting an award she didn't ask to be given makes no damn sense. If you want to be pissed at anyone it should be Glamour Magazine, they chose her.

Second...She has actually done a great deal for the Trans community by being so public with her transition and encouraging Trans people to be who they are.

Third....No one should be saying she isn't a woman, that is not for any of us to decide other than her God (if she chooses to believe in one). So I think people need to stop all the nasty comments, the hate, the judgement. It is really disgusting to read/see how shitty people can be about things that have no relevance in their lives whatsoever.

With all that said....

I feel as though there are many women who would have been much more deserving of an award. See how easy it was for me to say I disagree with the choice without saying something shitty?

Let's stop being so damn judgmental and crucifying everyone who doesn't fit into our boxed-in perceptions of what is right. 

I am shocked to hear so many women got so seriously offended when she made the joke about "figuring out what to wear being the hardest part for her" 

IT WAS A JOKE. Calm down. 

I don't think she put herself through all that came with her public transition and really believes the hardest part of being a woman is dressing herself. chill out. 

Well...I feel like I got my point across....

I agree with what you are saying here. You can disagree about something without being an asshat. I am with you, there are so many woman who were more deserving of the award. Boom. Said and done. All the personal attacks and stuff are just ugly and pointless.

I agree with you! I think Caitlyn has done amazing things, BUT I think a LOT of women have done amazing things this year. So many. There's just other women I would have picked before her.

I agree with you... very well said!!! I don't think she's undeserving of the award, though I do think there are a lot of other women who deserve it, too. In general, we need to support ALL of our women more!

Well Said. She wouldn't have been my first choice but I also don't think she is not deserving. People are just crazy and need to get off their high horse. The world needs more love not more hate.

Couldn't agree more. And actually, I hadn't heard of this. I remember when people were all up in arms when she was first transitioning and talking crap about taking away her Olympic medals and other stupid/crass stuff. Are there others whom I think deserve it more? Yes, but that doesn't take anything away from her, she just accepted the award! Our society gets hung up on all the wrong issues.
