A Brazil magazine’s Generation Glamour awards winners feature two biological men, including an influencer it crowned “Woman of the Year.”
A male influencer, Linn da Quebrada, brought home “Woman of the Year,” according to a Daily Wire report.
It’s probably not what James Brown meant when he sang “It’s a Man’s World,” but Conde Naste’s Brazilian edition of Glamour went there.
Da Quebrada stated he does not identify as a woman and does not believe women “exist.”
During an interview with Globo Television Network journalist Pedro Bial, da Quebrada declared “I’m not a woman, I’m a transvestite,” according to a Reduxx report. “Let’s be honest, there’s no such thing as ‘a woman,’” he reportedly added.
Da Quebrada explained his outrageous remarks by listing ambiguous words in the Portuguese language, which is the official language of Brazil. The “Woman of the Year” said the words had to be “invented” to describe concepts so subjective that they could not be defined.
He sometimes refers to himself as an effeminate gay man, according to the Reduxx report. Other times, he reportedly uses feminine pronouns. Quebrada most commonly labels himself a “transvestite,” which, in Brazil, identifies men who present themselves in feminine ways but do not identify as transgender.
Glamour’s top award winner first achieved fame by appearing in the Brazil version of “Big Brother.” After his appearance on the reality TV show, he began showing up in tabloids that considered him a pseudo-celebrity. The report added he often pulled stunts to gain media attention.
Da Quebrada was not the only male who received a woman’s award at the Glamour ceremony.
Giovanna Heliodoro won Glamour‘s “Woman Influencer with a Cause” award, Reduxx reported. Heliodoro identifies as a “feminist black trans woman,” recognized in his country for advocacy of trans causes.
Shortly after British author J.K. Rowling tweeted support of Maya Forstater and the material reality of sex, Heliodoro threatened to “beat this bitch,” according to the Reduxx report.
Brazilian women reportedly took to social media to condemn Glamour for giving the two men their awards, especially the Woman of the Year award.
