Jon Stewart to Caitlyn Jenner: 'Welcome to Being a Woman in America'

The American media has been quick to embrace Caitlyn Jenner—and, as Jon Stewart pointed out on last night’s episode of The Daily Show, to suffocate her with the male gaze. Welcome, girl!

“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,” Stewart began. “You see, Caitlyn, when you were a man, we could talk about your athleticism, your business acumen, but now you’re a woman, and your looks are really the only thing we care about.”

Pundits are asking each other important questions about the societal impact of Caitlyn’s transition, such as “Do you think Caitlyn is hotter than Kris?” and “Does she have a better body than Kim Kardashian?” and, saving the best for last: “She looks good! Especially for her age.”

Stewart: “There you go! That’s the caveat we were missing: Remind her she has an expiration date now! You came out at 65, you’ve got another two years before you become invisible to society.”

1. The only thing he left out was the wage inequality...

... but the cartoonists have picked up the slack there, depicting her being paid 78 cents on the dollar now that she's a she.
