Sometimes It Takes A Funny Dude To Put Other Not-So-Funny Dudes In Check

Ever notice how the Internet seems to bring out the absolute worst in people? (Not to mention how it also brings out the absolute worst people, but I'll save that convo for another day). Well, here's some great advice for the men online who get their kicks complaining about, hating on, and blaming women. I know they're probably disproportionately louder than all of the amazing dudes out there who totally get us. But if the shoe fits, gentlemen, please lace up and take notes.

For the first time in its 56-year history, Sports Illustrated will feature a transgender model on its glossy cover. 23-year-old Brazilian model Valentina Sampaio will appear in the July issue, which hits stands early next week. Sampaio wrote on Instagram that she was "excited and honored" to be part of such an iconic issue, adding: "The team at SI has created yet another groundbreaking issue by bringing together a diverse set of multitalented, beautiful women in a creative and dignified way."

A native of Fortaleza, a city in northeastern Brazil, Sampaio has been making history in the fashion world in recent years. She was already the first trans model to make the 2017 cover of Vogue Paris. Scouted while she was a young teen, she quickly made her way onto key runways in her home country. She managed to make an impression in a short time— launching her career at 18 years old—as L'Oréal Paris's first trans model. She hit another milestone last year, when she was the face of Victoria's Secret campaign, breaking barriers as the first trans woman working with the brand.
