Revered feminist author Germaine Greer has insisted that Bruce “Caitlyn” Jenner only changed sex so he could bathe in the same limelight as his Kardashian daughters. Left-wing Greer hit out at the U.S. Olympian turned reality star after Mr. Jenner was rumoured to be under consideration to be crowned Glamour’s Woman of the Year.
Germaine Greer accused the Glamour of ‘misogyny’ and said a transgender person should never be considered a better woman than someone born female. The lefty hero then alleged Jenner only ever wanted to be a woman so that he could revel in the attention before claiming his own right to speak on the matter of transgenderism.
Speaking on the BBC’s Newsnight programme, Ms. Greer said: “It seems to me that what was going on there was that he/she wanted the limelight that the other, female, members of the family were enjoying and has conquered it, just like that.”
Referring to the Woman of the Year award, she then added: “I think misogyny plays a really big part in all of this, that a man who goes to these lengths to become a woman will be a better woman than someone who is just born a woman.”
Greer, author of The Female Eunuch, her 1970s take on women’s sexuality, has sparked similar controversies in the past with comments regarding transsexuals.
