If you’re hot and you think I’m hot you need to speak the fuck up
Fuck whoever submitted this. We ain’t trading your white faves (who aren’t on the damn show anymore because the actress was over it) for a black woman.
^ this is hilarious. i knew some butthurt sjw was going to somehow make this racist. no, it’s about the fact that Margaret (whoever the fuck that even is) is a shitty character, a bad actress (that FUCKING lisp oh my god) and basically a replacement for Lexie. at least Lexie was likeable. “content of your character” much?

Transgender women *shouldn’t* model womenswear. Fashion is the ONE space where women’s bodies (granted, not enough *types* of women’s bodies, but women’s bodies nonetheless) are revered. If transwomen really seek to be considered women, they should have a certain level of respect for the realities of being born and raised a biological woman. One of those realities is that the margin of acceptable bodies is growing smaller and smaller. This ideal that women are confined to doesn’t change shape when new kinds women (see: heroin chic, human Barbies, etc) enter it. It shrinks. Putting MTF individuals in womenswear means *less* room for different female-sexed bodies in womenswear, which is a fight we’ve been working on long before Andreja Pejic insisted on nosing into our territory. I get that JPG loves to be “edgy” (see: a show full of Karlie Kloss and Coco Rocha posing obnoxiously) but I hope other designers won’t follow his precedent. I hope the respect for women shown by Alber Elbaz, Tom Ford, the late Alexander McQueen, and those who follow their example will encompass the tacit truth that the meaning of womanhood is partially derived from female birth and socialization.
