Stuff We’re Loving: Isis, first trans-gender Top Model…for Diddy?

September 30, 2008

Stuff we’re loving may seem like a weird category to put a post like this in but I don’t care… I’m LOVING the fact that people are finally making moves to accept others for who they are and who they want to be.

A prime[time] example of this can be found in America’s Next Top Model candidate “Isis” who was born as a male but is currently transitioning to become a female. 

But I mean, this isn’t news to anyone. The big story here is that despite all of the controversy that has been surrounding Isis it seems that she may come out on top after all. It has been leaked to a few blog sites that Diddy has been making undercover moves to sign Isis on as a model for his clothing line Sean John. No one seems to be able to confirm this rumor (probably since the ANTM season isn’t over) but I really wouldn’t be surprised if he did. 

That Diddy… always trying to stay on top of things. : x

Isis, 22, identifies herself as “a woman born physically male,” adding that she was “born in the wrong body” and always felt completely female.”

She’s been criticized on the show for not being “soft” enough or coming across “too strong” in her photos but bottom line, Isis is NOT a female… at least not yet. Transitioning from one sex to the other is no easy task. It can weigh heavily on any person both mentally and physically, can be extremely expensive and takes years to complete. 

Isis may be just another face on Top Model for right now but something is telling that she is certainly a person that we should all keep our eyes on.
