Jill Soloway, the creator of Amazon's Transparent, on Tuesday weighed in on the backlash to Caitlyn Jenner being named Glamour's “Woman of the Year.”

The widower of a 2001 recipient of Glamour's award returned it, saying that it was an “insult” to his wife's memory that Jenner was honored this year.

Others took issue with Jenner's saying that the hardest part of being a woman is “figuring out what to wear.”

(Related: Rose McGowan says Caitlyn Jenner doesn't “understand what being a woman is about.”)

“It's sad,” Soloway said during an appearance on HuffPost Live. “There's this feeling of the binary – this kind of either/or – that a lot of people get really attached to. And a lot of people are powered by anger and looking for a reason to be angry..”

“And if he's wanting the kind of attention around giving [his] wife's award back, it sound like he's probably just really wanting to express anger to the world,” she said of the husband's decision to return his wife's award.

Soloway also said Jenner has a right to be femme.

“Some trans women are really femme, some trans women are really butch. Everybody's different, and Caitlyn happens to be from a family – I'm a huge Kardashians fan – everybody in that family talks about hair and makeup and clothes all the time. It's their hobby to look good, so that's where Caitlyn comes from. Whether or not she has a right to do that – of course she has a right to do that. She's a woman. Every woman has a right to be as femme or as not femme as they wish to be. And it's absolutely awesome that Glamour has honored her. And I think people are slowly but surely going to come around to the sort of basic facts about trans-ness,” Soloway added.
