NEW YORK, October 30, 2015 (LifeSiteNews) – Being a man and killing girls didn't stop two winners of the 2015 Glamour “Women of the Year” awards.

This week, the popular magazine announced that former Olympic athlete Bruce Jenner and Planned Parenthood CEO Cecile Richards were joining an actress, peace advocates, and an entrepreneur as two of the 2015 recipients – even though Jenner is a biological male and Richards's organization killed one in sixteen girls who would have been born in 2014.

“A year ago Caitlyn Jenner did not have a name,” says the Glamour summary of Jenner's section of the winner page. “The Olympic hero turned reality star patriarch was still living a phantom existence, her changing appearance igniting a tabloid frenzy around the rumor she'd run from for most of her 66 years: that she was transgender.”

The decision to give the award to Jenner, who legally changed his name to “Caitlyn” in September, was not wholly supported among feminists. Radical feminist and author Germaine Greer said earlier this week that “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's comments provoked a backlash, but she didn't back down. “I've asked my doctor to give me long ears and liver spots and I'm going to wear a brown coat, but that won't turn me into a f****** cocker spaniel,” she said.

“I do understand that some people are born intersex and they deserve support in coming to terms with their gender but it's not the same thing. A man who gets his d*** chopped off is actually inflicting an extraordinary act of violence on himself.”

Former Cosmo writer and converted pro-life feminist Sue Ellen Browder, author of Subverted: How I Helped the Sexual Revolution Hijack the Women's Movement, told LifeSiteNews that Greer “is absolutely right. Preach, Germaine Greer!”

Richards's claim to fame is heading up Planned Parenthood, which Glamour described as providing “services … for sexually transmitted infections, breast and cervical cancer screenings, birth control, emergency contraception, and more.”

No mention was made on the main winners' page of the nearly 330,000 abortions done each year in Planned Parenthood's clinics, nor the harm of contraceptives and abortions to women.

2012 “Women of the Year” winner and abortion fanatic Lena Dunahm wrote for Glamour that “Cecile Richards is a Woman of the Year because … [s]he is fighting for each and every one of us. I would follow her into a burning building and still not be half as brave as she is.”

Browder disagreed with Dunham. “I understand why they're trying to defend what they consider their right to abortion in Glamour,” she said. “I was once on their side.”

“They think they're doing the right thing. They think they're defending truth and justice for women. They're not.”

“Abortion harms women physically, emotionally, and spiritually,” she explained.

Richards earns more than $600,000 annually to head America's largest abortion company, which is currently under state and federal investigations for allegedly violating various laws related to fetal harvesting and types of abortions. The organization has also broken state laws related to reporting when raped minors come to clinics to have abortions.
