So crows the irresistible Defamer headline noting the inclusion of a transgendered contestant on the next season of America’s Next Top Model.
As Us Magazine reports:
One of the 14 girls who will compete on the new season of America’s Next Top Model—which returns to The CW on September 3—is transgender.
“My cards were dealt differently,” Isis, a 22-year-old former receptionist, tells Us Weekly. Hailing from Prince George’s County, Maryland, Isis identifies herself as “a woman born physically male.”
Will she be a role model? “I like to help people, but I’m here to follow my dreams,” she tells Us.
A shameless grab for ratings? A triumph for the transgendered? A recipe for high-octane bathroom dramatics? Yes, yes, and yes.
