USA Today announces this year’s WOTY selection

The moment we’ve all been waiting for, I’m sure.

‘Be true to yourself’: A message from the nation’s highest-ranking openly transgender official

*groan*

Rachel Levine is one of USA TODAY’s Women of the Year, a recognition of women across the country who have made a significant impact. The annual program is a continuation of Women of the Century, a 2020 project that commemorated the 100th anniversary of women gaining the right to vote. Meet this year’s honorees at womenoftheyear.usatoday.com.

I’m fine with it, really, except for that whole “She’s a fucking MAN” part.

Levine, 64, a trained pediatrician, became the nation’s highest-ranking openly transgender official last March when the Senate confirmed her as assistant secretary of health. Levine has spent her professional life in medicine – as an academic, a clinical researcher, a primary care physician and as Pennsylvania’s physical general and secretary of the Pennsylvania Department of Health – but she admits her current role has proven to be the most challenging.

Beyond the pandemic, Levine said she is concerned about the challenges women and girls face related to body image. She ran an eating disorder program at Penn State University and was struck by the pressures of social media related to appearance.

“We need to be welcoming and celebratory for women of all aspects, of all sizes and shapes,” she said. “And we have to work towards that compassion for all women and not put such an emphasis on thinness and appearance. I think that we need to work as a culture in the United States, but also globally, to be more compassionate and more accepting of girls and women, no matter what their size and shape.”

Still, Levine believes that women are largely responsible for the positive changes we are seeing in society.

Because of course he does.

“Women are absolutely critical in terms of promoting healthy behaviors for themselves and their families and our communities,” Levine said. “I think women are often the creators of change. In terms of the changes that we see in our society and our culture, I think that women are those change-makers.”

Gotta give the mentally-disturbed freak this: he really knows how to tickle all the shitlib erogenous zones, don’t he?

Via Miguel at GFZ, who quips “Nothing says, “Women’s History Month’…Like awarding a dude the title of Woman of the Year.” Ain’t it the truth.

We went from Crocodile Dundee going “That’s not a Sheila” to Austin Powers going “That’s a MAN, Baby!” in a comedic fashion to “She’s ‘Woman’ of the Year!!” in a serious, unironic way.

Kafka Shrugs.

Men shouldn’t have to declare theirselves as women to compete in women’s sports.

It would be interesting to get women’s opinions on a mentally ill man being a better woman than they are. But of course even to ask the question would get you banished to the outer darkness in today’s world.

Also, note the “trained pediatrician” bit. Not saying the mentally ill dude is a pedo, but predators go where the prey is. And a lot of these mental sicknesses tend to occur together.

Bingo.
