Gahhh - too many FB posts proclaiming Caitlyn Jenner "can't" be woman of the year

It seems like most of the articles are coming from right wing sources, so no surprise there, but I’m bummed to see agreement from a lot of the liberal/moderates on my newsfeed.

I can sort of see the argument that Caitlyn shouldn’t be WOTY because she’s underqualified - while she seems to have done a bit of outreach/activism work around trans teens a few months ago, I don’t think of her as a huge leader. There are probably other (less glam, less famous) women that deserve the title more. But a good portion of the backlash from the liberal feminist set seems to be around the ideal of a “man” stealing this award. Which....wat. No. No no. NO.
