**Updates Every Friday**PR agent Destiny Jones was perfectly fine with going into the office, dealing with scandals and coming home to the internet gossip communities at night. When her favorite singer, Peter Bens, is caught in the cheating scandal of the year, her company is tasked with cleaning up the image and Destiny tasks herself with getting into his pants. It was a fool proof plan, or so she thought. Now she was stuck with a newly reformed monogamous celebrity breaking down her door, when all she wanted was a night of his time. What’s a girl to do?

International model, Andrej Pejic, announced via Entertainment Tonight and People magazine that she underwent sex reassignment surgery earlier this year. Now a trans woman, Pejic will go by the name Andreja.

After keeping transition secret for the past few months, Pejic wanted to come out publicly and be honest with the public. 

"I want to share my story with the world because I think I have a social responsibility," the 22-year-old told People. “I hope that by being open about this, it becomes less of an issue.”

Pejic rose to fame thanks to her androgynous appeal and ability to model female fashion almost seamlessly. She earned international acclaim in 2011 after walking in both men and women’s fashion shows for Jean Paul-Gaultier during Paris Fashion Week. Pejic followed the runway walks with stunning covers on Dossier JournalOut magazine and even landed on FHM’s annual 100 Sexiest Women in the World.

The gender-bending model work perplexed some but fascinated most — always leading to the question about her identity.

"For me it’s always been important to show it doesn’t matter what gender you are," Pejic told Out earlier this year. “It doesn’t define who you are. “

But despite all of her success as a male model, Pejic knew deep down that she was a woman. “I always dreamt of being a girl. One of my earliest memories is spinning around in my mom’s skirt trying to look like a ballerina.” In the same conversation with People, the model admits she has known her true gender since the age of 13. 

In a message on Facebook, Pejic thanked her fans for their support and understanding. ”I think we all evolve as we get older and that’s normal but I like to think that my recent transition hasn’t made me into a different individual. Same person, no difference at all just a different sex,” she wrote.

Pejic also reached out to the youth community who might be questioning their identity with a message of hope: 

"I would also like to to reach out to all young gender non-conforming youth out there: I know it’s hard, I’ve been there, but remember it’s your right to be accepted as what you identify with — you deserve the same respect as any other human being on this planet."

With her story out, Pejic can focus on her work as a model and budding actor. Following an appearance in David Bowie’s music video for “The Stars Are Out Tonight,” the model was cast in her first film role as one of Ariel’s sisters in Sofia Coppola’s adaptation of the Disney classic. 

Note that her surgery isn’t what made her a trans woman, it was her choosing to identify as a trans woman that made her a trans woman. That’s all other than that rad

the fact that a girl being a feminist is a turn off to a lot of guys is just further proof that sexism exists they’re literally saying they don’t want a girl who requires respect because that’s just no fun

"A racist society will give you a racist science."

Remember that time when they made up a disease for black ppl when we didnt wanna be stuck as slaves?

Remember when they operated on black women with no anesthesia to get modern gynecological surgical procedures?

Remember when they sterilized poor woc without consent to keep us from ‘creating more undesirables’?

Remember when the government allowed Black men to go untreated with Syphilis even after a cure was discovered?

Remember when minority heavy areas in cities were sprayed with radioactive material to ‘test’ how America could handle a nuclear fallout?

Oh, you dont? Because I do…

Go look it up. Every single one was done by a white supremacist nation called America.

FOR SCIENCE!

Don’t forget that in 1975 about 35% of Puerto Rican Women were sterilized without their consent by the US government

1. A Troublesome Inheritance: Genes, Race and Human History by Nicholas Wade (Published 2014)

"Right now, it’s undeniable that Wade’s work is the most influential work of scientific racism circulating today. His argument is that racial groups have genetic predispositions to certain kinds of mental skills, some of which evolved only over the past few hundred years. As a result, some races are more creative or intelligent than others. The Chinese, he argues, are more prone to obedience, while people from tribal societies in Africa are impulsive and quick to consume everything they have. Meanwhile, Europeans are good at becoming prosperous due to their thoughtful, forward-thinking natures.

2. The Bell Curve: Intelligence and Class Structure in American Life, by Richard Herrnstein and Charles Murray (Published 1994)

"In this incredibly influential work of economics and sociology, researchers Herrnstein and Murray argue that class differences between whites and blacks in America can be traced back to differences in IQ. Blacks, they write, are simply not as intelligent as whites (and, to a certain extent, Asians — though mostly they’re talking just about blacks and whites). Because many studies show that IQ is a very strong indicator of economic success, they believe that IQ differences are at the root of racial differences. They use "scientific" data about IQ scores to dismiss the idea that political inequalities and the history of slavery in the U.S. are causes of racial inequality."

3.  “Why Are Black Women Less Physically Attractive Than Other Women?” By: Satoshi Kanazawa (Published 2011)

"Dr Kanazawa, a lecturer at the London School of Economics, has published findings based on a survey of white, Asian, black and native American men and women who were asked to rate each other’s attractiveness based on photographs.

Nor does he explore the fact that the research on which he bases his conclusion was conducted in America where European ideals of beauty dominate.”

***Satoshi Kanazawa has been the only recipient on this list dismissed for his work, could it be because he is an Asian man?***

In response to ongoing controversy over views such as that African countries suffer chronic poverty and illness because their people have lower IQs and that black women are “objectively less attractive” than other races, he was dismissed from writing for Psychology Today.
