GQ is doing its annual ‘Men of the Year’ back-patting this week — but they’re including a bunch of ladies in the celebration, and it’s got some people — mostly men — bent out of shape.
The famous magazine is hosting two different events to celebrate their honorees — on Wednesday, they threw a shindig out in London … and come Thursday, they’ll do the same thing here in the States. For both, it’s a star-studded get-together … guys and gals, in fact.
That’s what’s got some people’s panties in a bunch on Twitter — if you go fishing for the outrage, you’ll find it … with a good handful of folks asking why there’s such a strong female presence in GQ’s spotlight of their “men.”
It’s a fair argument, we suppose … fact is, their list of honorees over across the pond was made up of a lot of women. Actually, more than half were ladies — out of 20 people named for the UK event, only 10 of them were actually dudes … and that’s raised some eyebrows.
Some of the women recognized as “Men of the Year” nominees there included … Jasmine Jobson, Mary Earps, Simone Rocha and Bianca Saunders, just to name a few. When they run it back on Thursday … Kim Kardashian will undoubtedly be in attendance.
You see … she’s actually one of the famous women who graced their ‘MOTY’ cover this year, and even that decision has gotten some pushback. Y’know, seeing how it’s a men’s mag.
Of course, GQ has been including women in their ‘Men of the Year’ lineup for years now … so the people who are extra pissy about it in 2023 seem to be looking for something to be mad about. There also seems to be some misogyny afoot … and maybe transphobia too.
