The media has been exploding over Caitlyn Jenner's cover story with Vanity Fair. Last night on the 'The Daily Show', Jon Stewart started off his second act by misleading his audience. Stewart made it seem like he was going to voice his opinion about the media's phobia against transgenders, even calling out some networks who he just knew were going to have a terrible reaction.
"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 pointed out that Jenner has been called out not about her looks, but called out on her level of hotness, exactly how any woman in American society is formally treated. The segment was followed by a reel of news outlets praising her on how attractive they found her, comparing her to style to classic hollywood celebrities, and even stating that she looks like the perfect combination of some of Hollywood's hottest women.

Jon Stewart's honest opinion on Caitlyn Jenner that needs to go viral
In this June 1, 2015 photo, a journalist looks at Vanity Fair's Twitter site with the Tweet about Caitlyn Jenner, who will be featured on the July cover of the magazine. Caitlyn Jenner, the transgender Olympic champion formerly known as Bruce, on Monday unveiled her new name and look in a sexy Vanity Fair cover shoot -- drawing widespread praise, including from the White House. Lesbian, gay, bisexual and transgender campaigners -- and many well-wishers -- welcomed the high-profile debut, as did the 65-year-old Jenner's family, which includes the media-savvy celebrity Kardashian clan. 'I'm so happy after such a long struggle to be living my true self,' Jenner wrote in her first tweet after the magazine released the July cover photo by renowned photographer Annie Leibovitz.

The segment also pointed out that Jenner now has a lot to look forward in her life as a new and improved woman. She will be judged by her "physical appearance, not by her thoughts, opinions, or talent". Stewart also points out that she will be able to enjoy all of life's finest experiences as a woman, such as earning less than men in the workplace, being catcalled, and being called emotional.
Stewart points out that although America has a long way to go with accepting transgender people as a whole, that people are all equals regardless of their gender. Well said, Mr. Stewart.
