Caitlyn Jenner was honoured as Glamour’s Woman of the Year this year, but policeman, James Smith was not celebrating.
James’ wife was given the award after she was killed rescuing thousands of injured Americans during the 9/11 World Trade Center attacks. He was so insulted that the same award was given to Caitlyn Jenner (otherwise known as athlete and Kardashian member, Bruce Jenner) that he returned the award and penned a very distressed letter.
“I find it insulting to Moira Smith’s memory, and the memory of other heroic women who have earned this award,” he wrote. “Was there no woman in America, or the rest of the world, more deserving than this man? At a time when we have women in the armed forces fighting and dying for our country, heroic doctors fighting deadly diseases, women police officers 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?”
