1st of all Victotria’s secrete criteria is that you gotta have natural breasts – this is the rule for every female model top or starting. So he went and bought himself a pair of tits and lebia TF does that man him a woman. Being a model myself I know the industry is harsh and cruel on woman we must compete with a man? Why? So that we can seem less “old fashion” get with the times. Have we totally lost our minds? I think if there was a transgender show where these men can parade their…I don’t know what’s yeah but his NOT good looking! Why must we lower the bar just cuz he has money and can afford to buy himself a fake vagina

She’s gorgeous! I dare anyone to tell me other wise…I’m transgender, and I look like a woman, their is no way in hell you can even tell I was born male. Check my instagram out and you will see. @Goddess_Nikkole I think what she is doing is inspirational, I’ve always wanted to be a VS ANGEL. I HOPE SHE MAKES IT TO THE TOP AND BREAKS WALT’S AND BARRIERS FOR ALL OF US!

Howdy would you mind letting me know which web host you’re utilizing?
I’ve loaded your blog in 3 completely different internet browsers and I must say this blog loads a lot faster then
most. Can you recommend a good web hosting provider at a honest price?
Thank you, I appreciate it!

If you aren’t comfortable with the idea that this is a woman that we are talking about, I don’t even want to challenge your ignorance. It’s a shame that our culture hasn’t progressed past that yet, but I’m guessing you’re geezers and that’s why you have such old-fashioned ideas. I think that Carmen is a beautiful woman, but I don’t think she is fit enough for Victoria’s Secret. They have one kind of model that they hire: muscular, thin, tall. I just don’t think that Carmen is skinny enough to do Victoria’s Secret. I think that she could have a successful career modeling elsewhere, but I couldn’t imagine seeing her in my 2014 swim catalog.

Nothing about ignorance, more to do with the fact that people are trying to keep America’s IQ reasonably high via ridding low IQ people like yourself. In a strange way, I sorta understand how it got to the point where some idiots tossed some planes into the Twin Towers. All the brainwashers had to do was show this sort of s**t of Carmen and the plane tossers would then believe that all of america was like this.

Victoria Secret is a store that is for and by transgender men who like to wear women’s sexy clothes. That’s why it is named “Victoria’s Secret”. The “secret” is obviously his penis.

If anything, I agree with jennifer. I have nothing against Carmen for being trans, BUT if we are talking unbiased and professional wise….Carmen has no real experience as a true model. This would be allowing her an unfair advantage simply because of her gender and tv exposure, while most ladies who have went and competed on ANTM, worked hard to create a brand, are still out there searching for opportunities, gigs, and connects do not get this experience. Nothing against Carmen, because she is beautiful, but…I really don’t agree with the advantage…maybe in a couple years, when I see some professional campaigns and actual publications…not just her appearances on RuPaul.

I have nothing against transgender “females” but this is taking it too far, They should not be considered woman no matter how many plastic surgeries they have. Your either a male or a female. How many girls, natural born i mean try year after year to be a victoria secret angel, and here we are considering this drag show who has absolutely no comparison to the real prototype of a vs model simply because she/he is a tranny? Seriously ppl? If we allow this to happen the world will be taken over by man all over again. I DONT CARE HOW MANY SURGERIES HAPPEN HE IS A MENNNNNN!!!!!!!!

ABSURD!
ya pretty soon we are gonna be left without men to marry because they will all end up with trannys too. Lets let them take over.

OMG, at first I didn’t know who Carmen Carrera was but I knew straight away as soon as I saw her that she was a FAKE. Go to Thailand, plenty of them there too. But for godsakes America, keep it real, this is a man with fake boobs. I want to see real natural beauties on the VS catwalk and they are in abundance in this world.

if she was a model who carried a portfolio and had an agent and that was her career then I think that she should be considered for a model but she’s a reality star who on the weekend lipsyncs to record so I don’t think she is really a model like the regular girls that go out for modeling jobs so on that basis no she should not and that basis alone she should get an agent start taking photos pound the pavement like regular models then sure she looks good enough

She actually is a model, She’s done plenty of photo shoots and runway, and she is represented by the same agency that has represented Tyra Banks, Naomi Campbell, Coco Rocha and many many more.

She’s still a man. There’s nothing as trans gender. You are either a man or a woman. You still have the body of a man. Do u have womb and see your periods. God man made and woman and even further, he made woman for a man. Everybody else get lost!!! U r demon possessed.

idiotic? yup, for trying to tell the truth to someone as closed-minded and self-righteous as you. the idea of employing Carmen Carrera to walk in VS show is not just idiotic, it’s retarded and would be a black-eye against the brand. Nothing about Carmen Carrera aligns with the best qualities of Victoria’s Secret and involving her in a campaign would seriously degrade the company’s image and alienate it from its most lucrative target demographic.

and this has nothing to do with discriminating against Carmen Carrera, who is free to find work on TV as a curiosity like she has been, or anywhere else. better yet, she should develop and market her OWN lingerie brand, rather than encouraging useful idiots to exploit social media and the fear of bad press to engage in politically-correct blackmail against a brand like VS.

Here we go, lets use the outdated idiot scenario argument. In actual fact, this sort of Carmen s**t has been going on a lot longer than you think.

and since you don’t know many words in the English dictionary transgender is what she is now she’s transitioning gender after she has her vaginal plasti she will have a vagina then she will be a female as I said many females don’t have rooms many females don’t have. I’m sure many of your aunts grandma’s don’t have their rooms or don’t have their period happens to a lot of women young and old so she will be a female after her surgery her birth certificate will say female because she will be a female not a male she will be naughty trans she will be naughty mail she will be female it’s the law medically and legally I suggest you get out your legal books the Supreme Court that’s a minute to the Constitution.

I meant woomb not room, and that you probably have an and grandmothers that and other family members that do not have their periods or did not have when they were young girls not every woman has a. That does not define a female. But for some reason you’re very threatened by her maybe you’re not as attractive maybe you’re jealous she doesn’t bother me I’m not threatened by her I think she’s lovely and I sing good for her the only thing I think is she should be having an agent she should have been trying to work as a model her whole life as opposed to having been a reality star she should be pounding the pavement as a regular model like any other young lady not promoting herself as this non female that’s what bothers me.

Although I love Carmen but to walk in a show by Vicky secret I have to say no…why because the main objective is to cater to men who want there wives or girlfriend to be sexy for them so to know that there’s a former man in lingerie kinda kills the feeling but I also see the equality part but there should be some things reserved too imo

The idea behind VS shows aren’t for men. Sure men enjoy it but the target market for the fashion show is young girls and young adult women. The fashion show is an annual event that women look forward to for grandeur and inspiration. It’s empowering, whimsical, yet gaudy, and men don’t really care! Men don’t even like fashion shows they could care less!
