Y’all all need to calm down, she’s not being entitled, she’s proud that she is trans and a beautiful dark skinned woman, she is trying to show the world that women come in all shapes and sizes and colors and races and ethnicities and backgrounds and. That. Needs. To. Be. Appreciated. Us women NEED to stop tearing each other down about how we look and how we think, I understand that VS models work very hard for their bodies and their jobs and I admire them for their drive and relentlessness for perfection, but she’s worked hard too, she not only transitioned and dealt with the consequences from being different but she also is a gorgeous woman with a great body and she has reached her dream of becoming a model, and now she is movie onto her never dream of becoming the first trans woc VS model. She is not entitled. She is proud and wants to achieve her dream. And she also wants to spread her message that every woman is beautiful, a dress size doesn’t define you, your skin color doesn’t define you, your gender doesn’t define you, your background doesn’t define you. YOU. BE. WHO. YOU. WANT. TO. BE.
+Diana Polus You see "she meets the qualifications", yet sadly VS doesn't accept transgender I'm just saying "she" doesn't mean the qualifications. Which Is true "she" doesn't, yet I agree with the fact I also wouldn't never known "she" was a man.
+Peridot NC what qualifications does she not meet? She has a beautiful face and a great body. I understand if the judges don't want to cast her, but then why do they claim that the show is a fantasy. There is no fantasy if you're just going with basic looking models and not challenge what is standard. This is a company that sells clothes ,lingerie, but they wouldn't even attempt to cast trans or plus size models in their show. What is the point of making it look like a fantasy when there nothing otherworldly in it. SMH!!
No, you’re not entitled to being a VS model, being black and a man playing being a woman doesn’t make you one, and not only are you not a real woman, but even if you get to look or sound like one(you don’t), you also need to reach certain standards like height, weight, etc. Trying to pull the victim card to be a model is absurd.
A penis won’t look good in a thong and saying that because of your race and because your trans you should be given this. Oh no you need to actually work it. And a penis won’t attract people to watch VS.
Goddam I would of never known she was trans. Not huge fan of trans joining victoria secret but I think if you have the look and I don’t mean just pulling off the look of a woman but pulling off the beauty standards as the rest of the models then maybe yeah that would be fine. Simply being trans shouldn’t be the reason for getting in but being held at the same beauty standards as the other girls that worked so hard to get there should be.
Look I strongly believe in the First Amendment and my opinion is why not make a whole new clothing line for the LGBT community trying to change something that was founded in 1977 is pointless... At least until both sides become more accepting: I personally don’t care how you get your Wick/slit wet ;)
Aw, girl - Get in line. You're stunning and I wouldn't have known you were trans just looking at you. You're a beautiful woman... but maybe your look isn't what they want, and I don't mean your skin colour. There are dozens of stunning women turned down for VS every year. I hope you have a fantastic career regardless. May discrimination finally become an unbelievable hostory story some day.
She is so gorgeous, and I support you follow your dream, because I feel like Victoria secret body shames and discriminate people of color and they say " you need to be this tall or you need to be lighter" I'm 13 and pale as a ghost and I still support her
"I'm trying to be..." "I started last Monday on twitter..." ...seriously? If I want to be something I don't just write it on Twitter and hope someone takes notice. Good things take time, and if you do enough work, the brand will be coming to you, and you won't be on buzzfeed hoping to make the news with your dream from last Monday.
