Look, transgendered people are people too, so we should treat them like everybody else. That means we get to giggle at them when they do cray cray things like want to look like Harry Styles. Catrina Best, is a 20-year-old, female-to-male transgendered person. Best’s medical issue, in which he was incorrectly born into a female body instead of a male’s, is an issue separate than the need to be Harry Styles. Best was diagnosed as transgender and so his need to inhabit a male body is very real and should not be undermined.
The Daily Mail is kind of judgey in how they report this story, “
She He often felt depressed and confused because she he didn’t fancy boys and was bullied because she he made herself himself look different by binding her his breasts and having short hair.”
While I am sensitive to Best’s issue, I have to say, there are much better male role models than Harry Styles. Like, he is not even going to be relevant in two years. Best is already riding Harry’s pretty boy swag, he said, “People say my bone structure, eyes and lips are almost identical to Harry’s, and I’ve been asked for autographs. I haven’t started dating yet, but girls flirt with me and I even get chatted up by older women, like Harry does!”
Dude, pick someone who has a bit more longevity like Ryan Gosling, Kanye, hell, even Shia LaBeouf. C’mon you can do better than Harry. I wouldn’t be able to pick Harry Styles out of a group of kids at the mall. If you’re trying to troll groupies pick someone with more distinguished features like Channing Tatum or Joseph Gordon-Levitt. You have so many options. Get it together, man!
