Feminism is the radical notion that women are people.
Tyra(nt) pisses me off. The inclusion of a tralnsgender model may well have positive effects for the transgender community, but that is not at all why Tyra's doing it. She's hoping it will generate a 'freakshow' interest, that the contestants will be grossed out or squabble about sharing a bathroom, the model will fulfill 'humourous' drag queen stereotypes, etc. I doubt it's going to be a respectful or dignified experience for the model in question.As a friend cynically put it, 'Tyra certainly is trying to right injustice one model at a time'. Bless her heart.
She's also changed her own policy, based on earlier ANTM rules, which stressed that the contestants must have been 'born women'.I think the original rule was stupid, of course, particularly given Miss J as a judge, but... consistency, Tyra?
