Everyone isn’t championing for Caitlyn Jenner.
The widower of a New York City police officer returned his wife’s Woman of the Year Award to Glamour magazine via Fed Ex in protest of Caitlyn receiving the award.
Via CBS News:
James Smith’s wife, Moira Smith, was named one of the Glamour Women of the Year in 2001 posthumously after she died on Sept. 11, 2001. The police officer had rushed into the south tower and died there at the age of 38, reports the New York Post.
“I was shocked and saddened to learn that Glamour has just named Bruce Jenner ‘Woman of the Year.’ Was there no woman in America, or the rest of the world, more deserving than this man?” Smith wrote in a letter. “At a time when we have women in the armed forces fighting and dying for our country, heroic doctors fighting deadly diseases, women police and firefighters putting their lives on the line for total strangers, brave women overcoming life threatening diseases … the list of possibilities goes on … is this the best you could do?”
Glamour mag stands firmly behind their decision in awarding Caitlyn Jenner. A rep for the mag told the New York Post, “We were proud to honor his wife … in 2001, and we stand by our decision to honor Caitlyn Jenner. Glamour’s Women of the Year Awards recognize women with a variety of backgrounds and experiences.”
