LEXIE CANNES STATE OF TRANS — James Smith has none of the bravery of that of his late wife, Moira Smith, who was one of the many New York City police officers killed on Sept. 11, 2001. Officer Smith gave her life while trying to save people at the World Trade Center.
James Smith, also a New York City police officer, was so peeved about Glamour magazine’s (yes, Glamour magazine) recent decision to honor Caitlyn Jenner with an award, he went and dug up a 14-year-old award that the same magazine previously gave his wife posthumously and publicly slapped Jenner with it.
James returned the award because he says he was “insulted” and felt the magazine’s decision to honor Jenner was a “slap in the face” to his late wife’s memory.
The fact of the matter is that this is the action of a selfish man using an emotional appeal fallacy to shove his narrow world view down our throats. The world doesn’t revolve around Officer James Smith. To pull a stunt like this makes him a coward. Further, it tarnishes his late wife’s legacy.
This is Glamour magazine people. Everybody that can help sell the magazine is a hero to them.
Update Nov. 17, 2015 — Several people have pointed out that there may be more to this story than initially reported. The word is James may have supported trans people in the past, but doesn’t particularly care for Jenner. Let’s see what develops here. However, I don’t any plausible reason calls for dragging 9/11 into this.
