SOMEWHERE OVER THE RAINBOW -- Carmen Cajones, a transgender model and former contestant on RuPaul's Drag Race, has been rebuked by the lesbian gay bisexual transgender (LGBT) community for her"sexist" and "misogynistic" remarks about women.
"They [women] are the weaker sex," Cajones said. After a man, in undergoing sex-reassignment surgery, is castrated, she explained, "he no longer has the balls to make testosterone, so, as a woman, he becomes weaker in both mind and body as he begins to mutate and change."
She said she meant "no disrespect" toward the weaker sex and was trying to state her support for transgender athlete Chlorine Johnsson, who was prohibited from competing as a female athlete even though she had undergone "the operation" seven years ago and "is a woman now."
Cajones said that, if the company Johnsson is suing for an undisclosed sum ($2.5 million) would "test" Johnsson's womanhood, "they might be surprised to learn that, hormone-wise, he's a she."
Johnsson, Cajones insisted, has no "unfair advantage" over genetic women. "Just because she wasn't born with a you-know doesn't mean she is stronger, more agile, quicker, has more stamina, and can think better than members of the fair sex," she declared. "Look at me: I'm transgender, too, and, although I have beautiful bouncing boobies and an absolutely awesome ass, I am not stupid or ditzy or scatterbrained or any of that."
Just as Johnsson should have been allowed, as a "ladyboy" to compete against "other ladies," so should Cajones be permitted to become a Victoria's Secret model.
The other girls don't have anything I don't have," she said, "now that I've had the operation."
