If you were concerned that the media wouldn't embrace Caitlyn Jenner as a woman, well, fear not: Media figures were quick to not only embrace her, but to comment on how "sexy" and "hot" she is. "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," Jon Stewart said last night on the Daily Show. "You see, Caitlyn, when you were a man, we could talk about your athleticism, your business acumen ... but now you're a woman, and your looks are really the only thing we care about." Jenner has already been compared to other women, called pretty attractive "for her age," and, of course, accused of being airbrushed. "Caitlyn Jenner, congratulations," Stewart said. "Welcome to being a woman in America." (More Caitlyn Jenner stories.)
