Model Who Came Out as Trans After Transphobic Remarks Admits She's Not

Girl, what?

A model who “came out” as transgender has finally admitted it was a lie.

Carissa Pinkston made a series of transphobic comments on Facebook back in May that began circulating earlier this month.

“Being Transgender does NOT make you a Woman,” read one post. “It makes you simply Transgender.”

“In a biological context there are Females and Males,” read another.

 

 

The remarks ultimately led to Pinkston being dropped by her agency. Rather than apologizing for her comments, or even digging in deeper by trying to “explain” herself as transphobes often do, she instead jumped to a bizarre act of desperation and deception: she decided to come out as trans.

“I wasn’t ready to come out about it yet but today I got fired and I’ve been receiving hate mail and death threats ever since so I’m being forced to tell the truth,” Pinkston wrote in a since-deleted post last week.

“I’m Transgender. I transitioned at a very young age and I’ve lived my Life as a Female ever since. It’s been very hard to keep this secret but what I said about Trans-Women is a direct reflection of my inner insecurities and I have since come to realize that I am a Woman… WE ALL ARE!”

Some well-meaning fans rushed to support her, while other people who know her in real life immediately questioned her “big reveal.”

 

 

A few days later, Pinkston returned to Instagram to come clean.

“I panicked and I thought if I came out as Trans that I could somehow make things better for myself but it appears I’ve only made things worse,” she wrote.

 

 

Gosh, who would have thought pretending to be trans to get away with making shitty comments would backfire??

Shockingly enough, the model has continued to post about the incident, consistently centering the conversation around herself and her feelings and what she is losing (after the long string of really poor choices she has made here).

 

 

It’s unclear what exactly the moral of the story is here since there is SO MUCH GOING ON, and it’s undoubtedly not over yet. But uh, just don’t do literally any of the things here. Seriously. This is pretty basic stuff.
