Jon Stewart slams sexist media coverage of Caitlyn Jenner’s Vanity Fair cover debut

While much of the media coverage surrounding Caitlyn Jenner’s Vanity Fair cover debut has focused on the significance of such a high-profile reveal in promoting transgender acceptance, US TV host Jon Stewart made a valid point on last night’s Daily Show: enough with the “She looks so good!” talk, it’s not helping.

Echoing earlier sentiments from transgender actress Laverne Cox, Stewart slammed the coverage as sexist, chiding fellow reporters for preaching tolerance and acceptance, while falling back on lazy appraisals of Jenner’s appearance.

“It’s really heartening to see that not only is everyone willing to accept Caitlyn Jenner as a woman, but to waste no time in treating her like a woman,” he began, before introducing a montage of news heads commenting on the cover, saying things like “So sexy it hurts!”, “She looks better than I do!”, and even “It’s like, ‘Yeah, sexy, boobs!'”…

        Yep, slice and dice all you want, still can’t change the basic skeletal structure and shape of the masculine bones of the shoulders arms, legs, feet, hands. Chromosomes don’t lie.

      It’s all airbrush not top-flight plastic surgery.

  • BillyHW

    Don’t hire young people. They think Jon Stewart makes sense.

  • Hard Little Machine

    So Jon Stewart has no problem with pandering to ‘her’ attractiveness. In other words being Trans is good as long as you look good doing it.

    That’s so liberal of you Jon. So tolerant.

    Jenner and the progs reduce womanhood to boobs and a hole.

    You know why Bruce did this don’t you? He got tired of seeing the females of his family become famous for nothing more than having sex with black men, so he thought it would be easy to become famous once more by becoming a female. Any black males want to volunteer to help him become a Kardashian?

    A Bruce, is a Bruce, is a Bruce. No amount of surgery will change his genetics and for most of him, he’s still male. Bruce it is.
