In a segment titled “Brave New Girl,” Jon Stewart joined – or rather, mocked – the media in the discussion of Caitlyn Jenner and her recent transition.

Although he appeared to be pleasantly surprised by the media’s accepting response, he also pointed out the hypocrisy of it. As he phrased it, “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.” The show then cut immediately to various clips of people discussing her appearance, her body, and her overall image.

Jon hilariously joked that, while Caitlyn was a man, we could talk about her athleticism, her business ventures, etc. But, now that she is a woman, her “looks are really the only thing we care about.” Check out the clip below for the full hilarious segment. TC mark

Trace the scars life has left you. It will remind you that at one point, you fought for something. You believed.

“You are the only person who gets to decide if you are happy or not—do not put your happiness into the hands of other people. Do not make it contingent on their acceptance of you or their feelings for you. At the end of the day, it doesn’t matter if someone dislikes you or if someone doesn’t want to be with you. All that matters is that you are happy with the person you are becoming. All that matters is that you like yourself, that you are proud of what you are putting out into the world. You are in charge of your joy, of your worth. You get to be your own validation. Please don’t ever forget that.” — Bianca Sparacino
