Another reason I need feminism…

Caitlyn Jenner is in the news again today, this time in a Vanity Fair piece about her transition. The few of my Facebook friends (men and women alike) who have shared and commented on the story seem to find one thing about her transition to be of particular importance: Jenner’s attractiveness.

So in case you needed it, here’s your daily reminder that women — trans and cis alike — have a ways to go until we can make a first impression and define our value in society based on something other than appearance.


Edit, 6/3: As always, John Stewart says it best…

“It’s really heartening to see that everyone is willing to not only accept Caitlyn Jenner as a woman, but to waste no time in treating her like a woman.”
One clap, two clap, three clap, forty?

By clapping more or less, you can signal to us which stories really stand out.
