#12 Andrej Pejic - Androgynous Model - heralding a post-gender future?


Hank Pellissier


Ethical Technology

December 20, 2012

Gazing at the ravishing photos of Andrej Pejic, I’m stirred with envious confusion. Why does this tall skinny XY like me get to be so much prettier? Does his effeminate success - inflaming catwalks in both men and women’s high fashion - predict a fusion of two polarized genders, or a third construct?

Is this stuff seriously just becoming news?

I’ve been around people like him (And I AM a “person like him) all of my life (save, perhaps that I am a bit more sexualized).

It does seem to be the case that there are more men who tend toward feminization than there are women who are noticed for masculinization.

Probably because, regardless of gender, both sexes tend to gravitate toward societal norms of beauty, and it seems to be easier for a male to be a beautiful woman (and man) than it is for a woman too be seen as both a beautiful man and woman (and, there just seem to be more of the former than the latter as well).

I think back to photos taken of the crowd that I hung with in the 1980s.

People would say “You can’t tell who the men and who the women are.”

Of course, that was just a polite way of saying what others would say “You all look like girls!”.

Or the expression of those who felt more threatened “You are all a bunch of faggots” (missing the obviousness that there were usually only two or three men among five to six women - Where the women “Faggots” as well?).
