When 20-year-old model, Carissa Pinkston’s “transphobic” Facebook posts made back in May finally resurfaced with criticism, she panicked and came out as “transexual.”
Pinkston, who has worked with Nike, Marc Jacobs, and others, stated in a Facebook post under the name “Rissa Danielle” that transgender women are not real women, stating:
“Being Transgender does NOT make you a woman. It makes you simply Transgender.”
She wrote in another post:
“Being Transgender does not make you a woman in a Transgender context according to gender and sex. This is how they want to be perceived. In a biological context there are Females and Males. This is the world in 2019.”
Weeks after the backlash and losing her job Pinkston released a statement claiming to be transexual.
“I wasn’t ready to come 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. 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 securities and I have since come to realize that I am a Woman. WE ALL ARE!”
Pinkston denies claiming to be transgender to save her job, she claims the death threats she received prompted the response. Pinkston said to Buzzfeed, “The only reason I had lied was because of the death threats. And I was scared, so I thought they would accept me only if I said I was trans.”
The model claims that she is not “transphobic” and in her apology statement, asks the trans community to “educate” her.
