Outrage erupted across the Twittersphere and beyond as Time Magazine announced its Woman of the Year for 2024, and shockingly, it’s a woman! The decision has left many scratching their heads and others fuming with indignation, with some questioning whether Time has simply lost its marbles.

“This is an absolute travesty!” exclaimed one disgruntled Twitter user. “How dare they give the Woman of the Year title to an actual woman? What about inclusivity? What about diversity?”

The controversial decision has sparked a heated debate, with LGBTQ+ spokesThem issuing a scathing rebuke, declaring that “trans people have been erased” by Time’s archaic and exclusionary selection process.

“It’s 2024, people! Can’t we move beyond such binary thinking?” exclaimed a spokesperson for the organization. “Trans women, non-binary folks, and genderqueer individuals deserve recognition too. Time Magazine’s failure to acknowledge this is a slap in the face to the entire LGBTQ+ community.”

Meanwhile, traditionalists have defended Time’s decision, arguing that the Woman of the Year title should rightfully be awarded to, well, a woman.

“Call me old-fashioned, but I always thought the Woman of the Year should be, you know, a woman,” remarked one staunch defender of the status quo. “What’s next? Giving the Nobel Peace Prize to someone who hasn’t actually brought about peace?”

As the debate rages on, one thing is clear: Time Magazine’s decision has ignited a firestorm of controversy that shows no signs of simmering down anytime soon. Will Time cave to the pressure and retroactively award the title to a gender-neutral AI? Only time will tell.
