Chrysalis Lingerie : Specifically for Trans Women

Hi Poutlings

Transgender women are becoming more and more talked about and really, they are most certainly becoming more accepted and less taboo in todays society, and they are becoming an ever-growing demographic world wide… So it would make sense that new businesses would crop up to attend to their specific needs. Chrysalis Lingerie is a special lingerie that is marketed to transwomen, and it comes completel witha power-mesh panel that’s designed to create a seamless effect, so that those who wish to “pass” as a women can adequately tuck in their male genitalia.


Similarly, the bra comes with hidden pockets that “hold full-cup” insers to create the appearance of breasts (seems like this might be a useful invention for breast cancer survivors and women who have had mastectomies for a variety of reasons, too.) All of the Chrysalis lingerie models are transgender.


“I wanted a product that actually celebrated who we are, something that made us feel beautiful but is also practical. We’re done hiding. We’re done keeping quiet. We are a very diverse community, we do exist and we have explicit needs.” – Cy Lauz, Chrysalis designer.

I think it’s great and another step in the right direction towards transgender equality.

I hope RuPaul approves! 🙂

Gender Identity Change

Everybody, stop what you’re doing, and watch this! This is an amazing video shows what it really looks like to go through a gender identity change. YouTube user iiGethii writes:

“This video is of me going through a three-year transition (roughly one thousand pictures). I have had FFS during the process. I started roughly when I was 20-21 years of age.”

The photos show in striking detail how iiGethii grew more feminine in appearance, and became the beautiful young woman she wanted to be.

Rather eye opening, eh? You go girl, iiGethii.

Transgender model Jenna allowed to run for Miss Universe!

Transgender model Jenna allowed to run for Miss Universe!

Heya Fabulous Pouters!

So while I was doing my morning reading I came across an interesting article on model Jenna Talackaova, and the saga of her entering Miss Universe as a transgender model.

The Miss Universe Organisation has reversed an earlier decision and allowed transgender model Jenna to enter Miss Universe Canada pageant. It is, in fact also working with Gay & Lesbian Alliance Defamation (GLAAD) to update its policies on such issues.
Jenna 23, was born male, leading organisers to disqualify her last month as a finalist in the 61st Miss Universe Canada pageant in May.
The rules of the competition run by Donld Trump’s New York city based organisation says entrants must be “naturally born females”. Jenna underwent a sex change four years ago.
Talackova had claimed on her entry registration form that she was born a female, but Denis Davila, the national director of  Miss Universe Canada became suspicious about the 23 year old and confronted her about a sex change and the contestant admitted she was actually born male.
Michael D Cohen, executive vice president and special counsel to Donald Trump, wrote in an email to ABC:
The Miss Universe Organization will allow Jenna Talackova to compete in the 2012 Miss Universe Canada pageant provided she meets the legal gender recognition requirements of Canada, and the standards established by other international competitions.”
In my opinion I don’t fully agree with them allowing her to continue to compete, as this competition is based on naturally born females and beauty. She is not naturally a female and therefore they should create pageants for transgender competitors, allowing beauty of a different kind to compete.
What are your opinions poutlings?
