(via Miss Moss : Marianne Breslauer)
while i love that more people are potentially being inspired by an incredible photographer thanks to miss moss, i can’t help but wonder… the very same miss moss is sharing these (highly circulated) photos of a wonderful queer androgynous babe, has also used the word “tranny” as an insult. yet, she would laud a stylish gender bender who rejected the binary, and may very well be called a “tranny” in 2012.
Wonderful photo, important criticism.
i should clarify, too! i emailed diana at miss moss about this and not only did she apologize, she deleted the original post and was just really great about the whole thing. it’s unfortunately all too rare for people to acknowledge they used a shitty slur, apologize for it, and make an effort to make amends - and i think it’s important that people know diana made those steps.
