As you may or may not know … wait, who are we kidding? He’s all over the news, he has completely immersed himself into the media because he gets off on all of the attention. So you have most likely already seen the BuzzFeed interview of Bruce “Caitlyn” Jenner, entitled “Caitlyn Jenner on The Moment She Felt Most Proud to be a Woman” (sic). In this bit of his interview, he also discusses what he feels is the hardest part of being a woman. He said this:
There you go folks! The hardest part of being a woman all comes down to: what to wear.
Of course a man would think the hardest part of being a woman would boil down to clothes. In his autogynephile mind, all a woman is, is her clothing, because that’s what gets him off: dressing as a woman and, of course being seen as a woman.
We are all a part of his pornographic fantasy, nothing more.
This was posted in a group I belong to on Facebook, one that discusses gener critically; and here are what a couple of the womyn there had to say:
“I was so furious. I posted to my page with this comment…
Woman of the year… The hardest thing about being a woman is what to wear…
Call me when your cramps hurt so bad you can’t walk.
Call me when you have a pregnancy scare.
Call me when men honk at you and make lewd gestures at you at twelve years old.
Call me when you don’t get paid adequately for your increasingly difficult labor, and you go home only to find more labor dictated by gender roles.
Call me when you are force married.
Call me when you are sold by a pimp and then blamed for being “in the business.”
Call me when your entire life’s choices are limited by decades of belittling and social conditioning, to the point where you self limit and call it a choice.
Call me when you stop being a stereotype of what the world wants from me.
The hardest part of my day is NEVER figuring out what to wear. I defy roles you exalt. Bye.”
“It’s unbelievable! Out of all the issues that make being a woman difficult!? Doesn’t this just scream to everyone that this is what he truly believes: that to become a woman, one merely dresses in a certain way. Of course this is the most essential aspect to being a woman for Jenner; playing dressup is the aspect that gives him the greatest (erotic) thrill…despite its oh so many challenges! (eyeroll)…what a burden.”
It is inconceivable to me that anyone can take this man, or transgenderism itself, seriously. I mean, here is this group of people who could have been gender non-conforming people, brave warriors standing along side their gender non-conforming sisters and brothers in the lesbian and gay man communities. Instead, they choose to conform to strict gender roles, uncompromisingly adhered to stereotypes of the opposite sex. These completely gender CONFORMING people, transgenders, all believe that to be the opposite sex, one must only have to dress as the opposite sex and then to either drastically shorten or lengthen their hair, depending on which sex they wish to “identify as.”
Transgenders cannot live as they are, they cannot be their true authentic selves in the body they were born into for fear of retribution, so they wear the clothing that society has decided is only for the opposite sex, then they buzz off or grow out their hair (or, in the case of male transgenders, just wear a wig and you’re good!) and voila! They are the opposite sex!
Or in the case of about 80% of male transgenders, they wear the clothing that society has decided is for the opposite sex because they are autogynephiles. They, literally, get off on wearing “women’s clothing.” They also get off on being seen and treated as women. Going into the women’s bathroom, changing room, etc., also gets them off!
This is all so crazy, I cannot stand it! A man is voted Woman of the Year, taking the award away from women who are ground breakers like, Venus Williams, who has amassed 43 championship titles, won 3 Olympic Gold medals and has the fastest serve on record today. Or how about Tony award winning, Viola Davis, the first African American woman to win a Primetime Emmy Award for Outstanding Lead Actress in a Drama Series. Then, of course there is the first woman to become an Army Ranger, Capt. Kristen Griest, who overcame such incredible adversity and against all odds, surpassed both men and women who could not make it and she became the first female Army Ranger, opening the door for other women to not only become Army Rangers, but also Navy Seals!
There are incredible women out there and it is insulting to all of them, to all of us, when women’s magazines and organizations name a MAN to be their Woman of the Year!
This madness has to stop. Women need to rise up together and with one voice, demand that actual women get awarded for this and other awards. It is our time now, sisters! Rise Up!

Yep yep yep.you are absolutely right. THERE WAS NO WOMAN OF THE YEAR!! Those 2 Army Rangers endured more adversity and discrimination and crap to get through that training and millenia of discrimination than Bruce Jenner can POSSIBLY IMAGINE. They did all us women proud and open up possibilities fpr ALL women!!!
“This is all so crazy, I cannot stand it!”
Me too, me too. Thank you for this wonderful, spirited post.
Jenner is a self-centred, pathetic, dumb, laughable man to me — but I just can’t laugh anymore. I feel, at times, quite broken down by all of this. Broken by knowing how many people agree — men and women both! — that women are nothing but a collection of superficial, cosmetic signifiers. Nothing but a hairstyle and an outfit, just an outer shell.
Women of real accomplishment are almost invisible, because they cannot compete with the strength of this conviction that women are the high-heeled walking dead. Strange but true, these remarkable, real women are too much alive to be seen. A large portion of the public wants and prefers plastic.
It’s unbearable, this dehumanization of the female sex. But it’s also unbearable because of the stupidity: the level of public discourse is so low, ugly, dark. This is dark time. Adults have let magical thinking take over the conversation and their minds. What hope in hell do children have when these adults are their parents, teachers, social workers, doctors, etc.?
Of course, Bruce Jenner, by himself, is really nothing but a very ill man with a common fetish. It’s the gender ideology/practice itself that is so harrowing to us as women because it feels, sometimes, inextricable. Transgenderism is anti-woman, anti-child and anti-intellectual. It’s destroying minds and bodies and it’s an assault on our human spirit and dignity.

Seriously. what an idiot
Too bad he doesn’t have the balls to say it’s the hardest part of being FEMININE. The stress of constantly trying to please men to who control vital resources by conforming to patriarchal standards of beauty:
AMEN sister! (Literally A MAN.) Bruce’s quip shows that he is no female. The appearance of a thing, is not the thing. There are several more deserving women, as you have mentioned. Women who accomplish real things in the real world, against the odds, are outstanding. Men in dresses who use their wealth to get out of manslaughter charges? Not so much.
Great Point. He is a feminine man, that’s all.
Great reply sister! I could not have said it better myself!

I know, right Feisty? So many strong, powerful women and a MAN gets named Woman of the Year! It’s all one big joke, except no one’s laughing because they believe the hype!
