Jon Stewart discusses Caitlyn Jenner on "The Daily Show with Jon Stewart" on June 2, 2015.

Jon Stewart has a message for the media following the 24/7 coverage of Caitlyn Jenner following her Vanity Fair cover shoot: Good job, actually.

Stewart was all set to be outraged, but he pointed out that, surprisingly, most news anchors and commenters were supportive and encouraging and it marked a nice change. But there was another problem.

"It's really heartening to see not only is everyone willing to accept Caitlyn Jenner as a woman, but to waste no time in treating her like a woman," Stewart sarcastically explained, before rolling a montage of news anchors weighing in on how hot she is. 

"You see, Caitlyn when you were a man, we could talk about your athleticism, your business acumen," Stewart explained. "But now you're a woman -- and your looks are the only thing we care about. Which brings us to Phase 2 of your transition: Comparative F–kability." He then showed clips of people comparing Jenner's looks to those of her ex-wife Kris as well as stepdaughter Kim Kardashian West.

There's just no way to win. Welcome to being a woman.
