Sports Illustrated Goes Full ‘Woke’ and Puts Transgender Model on Front Cover

Model and actress Leyna Bloom has become the first trans person to appear on the cover of Sports Illustrated‘s swimsuit issue, the magazine’s most famous and perennially bestselling edition. “I dedicate this cover to all ballroom femme queens past, present and future,” Bloom wrote on Instagram. “Many girls like us don’t have the chance to live our dreams, or to live long at all. I hope my cover empowers those, who are struggling to be seen, feel valued.”

Yeah, this is part of the reason why I ended my subscription to S.I. some years back. Then too, assuming that straight men make up the largest segment of S.I.’s readership, I can guarantee you that none of them want to see a biological male wearing a women’s bikini.
