Trans model branded ‘2023 Woman of the Year’ by ‘Glamour’: ‘A woman somewhere has been robbed’

One of Glamour magazine’s 2023 “Women of the Year” is a biological man who used to be a drag queen but is now a transgender model.

Geena Rocero is the model’s name, and according to Glamour, Rocero started out as a pageant queen in the Philippines and eventually moved “to a career in fashion and trans advocacy in the United States.”

Rocero’s career also evidently includes book-writing.

“This year Rocero released her groundbreaking memoir, Horse Barbie. The book recounts her rise from pageant queen in the Philippines to a laudable career in fashion and advocacy in the United States,” a write-up from Glamour reads.

“It also reveals the process behind her decision to share her trans identity publicly. But as much as it’s autobiographical, Horse Barbie is also an exploration of some of the most universal themes of womanhood: belonging, confidence, and love,” the write-up continues.

Glamour claims the book’s release was “met with critical acclaim,” including from the Biden administration.

“On a visit to the White House, she presented copies to Transportation Secretary Pete Buttigieg and White House Press Secretary Karine Jean-Pierre, who has kept the book in her office,” according to the magazine.

Rocero has reportedly also previously met with former President Barack Obama — who, as recently reported, allegedly used to fantasize about having sex with men.

All this comes nine years after Rocero publicly revealed his trans identity during a TED talk event in Vancouver.

“I felt like I was freeing myself to be fully as I am,” Rocero told Glamour at the time.

As for the title of Rocero’s book, “Horse Barbie,” it stems from the derogatory insults the model used to be inundated with as a child.

“In Horse Barbie, Rocero exalts Tigerlily Garcia Temporosa, the mentor and community mother who encouraged her to embrace not just her gender but also the derogatory remarks made about her ‘equine’ neck and limbs. That advice gave birth to the nickname ‘Horse Barbie’ and catapulted Rocero into top-billing status on the competition circuit,” Glamour notes.

“I became the thoroughbred,” Rocero told the magazine. “It’s a whimsical thing for me to think about.”

Despite the insults, Rocero “dominated nearly every stage she stepped onto,” according to Glamour.

“At 15 years old she took the highest titles here in the national pageant. I [was] so proud and so happy. A lot of good transgender [competitors] wanted me to handle them, at that time, with Geena rising as a promising star,” Temporosa told the magazine.

A promising star who’s now been labeled a “Woman of the Year,” much to the chagrin of those who say only biological females should be picked for the competition:

To be fair, this isn’t the first time Glamour has chosen a man as its “Woman of the Year.” The magazine pulled the same stunt in 2021 with Munroe Berdorf, a biological man who also identifies as a transgender woman.

“Someone who knows the impact discrimination has on Black transgender people is Munroe Bergdorf. The 33-year-old has long been campaigning for marginalised voices. Her 2018 documentary What Makes A Woman explored changing ideas around gender and identity and showcased her as one of the UK’s most progressive activists,” the magazine reported at the time.

Glamour is also not the first outlet to embrace the transgender craze.

“Last year, newspaper USA Today declared transgender Biden administration official Rachel Levine as its woman of the year. Sports Illustrated has included trans people as cover models and swim suit edition models repeatedly. In 2015, the Guardian named a ‘non-binary’ columnist as its ‘Woman of the Future,'” Breitbart notes.
