He might have a point!
Last night on The Daily Show, Jon Stewart took a moment to put the media under the microscope regarding the way they’ve portrayed Caitlyn Jenner‘s transformation (video below). Stewart pointed out, now that Caitlyn is a woman, a large chunk of the media seems to only care about her looks!
The talk show host said that in becoming a woman, Jenner’s media focus is now primarily on aspects far too stereotypical and superficial such as her looks, her wardrobe, and comparing her to other women’s physical appearance. The host showed a myriad of clips backing up his claim while saying with a mocking tone:
“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.”
The late night host continued:
“You see, Caitlyn, when you were a man we could talk about your athleticism, your business acumen. Now you’re a woman, and your looks are the only thing we care about. Which brings us to phase two of your transition: your ‘comparative f-ckability.”
Stewart went on to give some more great analysis of the way the media tends to pidgeonhole Caitlyn and women in general. Check out what else he had to say in regards to the media’s focus on women versus men in the video below!
