If you said "yes," then you wouldn't be alone. Adorable little hipster darling Jamie Clayton has been getting a lot of attention in the press lately, and while most of it centers around how gosh darn hot she is, it's also due to the fact that there's one teensy detail about her that makes her stand out from all the other pretty young things in Manhattan: She used to be a man.

That's right, home girl is a tranny. But here's why people are so interested: Most male-to-female transgenders and transsexuals in the media have been portrayed as well, hot tranny messes, starting with the tragic blond glamour puss Candy Darling of the Warhol era, the unforgettable 70s Rocky Horror Picture Show icon Dr. Frankenfurter, over-the-top club kids Lady Bunny, Sophia Lamar, Amanda Lepore and perhaps the most famous of them all, RuPaul, who also happens to be the first transsexual to sign a very lucrative cosmetics contract thanks to the always progressive company, M.A.C. But what do all of these women have in common? Well, on the most superficial level anyway, they all look like drag queens.

Maybe that's why people are freaking out about Clayton, who looks as fresh as a daisy and who's model-esque figure is described in a recent New York Observer article like this: "She is 5-foot-10, has long, wavy red hair, porcelain skin and big blue eyes. She sat upright in her stool, long bare legs draped on top of each other exposing upper reaches of thigh under a gray cloth miniskirt." Indeed, the piece begins with author Spencer Morgan claiming he found her via a straight male bachelor friend known for always having a hot chick on his arm. "Now he was dating a tranny, and talking about it as casually as if he'd recently begun incorporating onions in his scrambled eggs. He went on and on about how she was 'totally ----- hot, man. Probably one of the hottest transsexuals in the world; it's probably between her and some Thai boy.'" Um, wow, he sounds charming.

To be fair to Clayton, she sounds like a wonderful, intelligent young woman with a keen amount of self-awareness, which I would imagine is the kind of trait that helped her realize her gender transformation with the confidence such a transition must surely demand. And heck, I think she's pretty damn courageous for getting her photo taken and speaking out about her experience so candidly in a public forum. Hers is a righteous cause: The more we as a society begin to recognize transsexual and transgendered citizens not as outrageous performers or even "freaks" but as normal, if not somewhat extraordinary people (think Thomas Beatie on "Oprah", the better it is for everyone in terms of evolving into the accepting, equal opportunity country some folks claim we are. Still, I can't help but think that in this situation anyway, it reminds me of the fact that thousands of children go missing per year, yet you usually only hear about it when it's a really cute, fair-headed white kid. As long as you're beautiful, people care!

Do you feel like this is a good thing in that we are moving away from the standard perception of male-to-females as stereotypically glittery and flamboyant, or is this just another example of the fact that if you're drop dead gorgeous, the world is your oyster? (Or within this context, does it even matter? I mean, positive press in this case probably represents a valid exception, but still...) Let's talk.

Your boyfriends, husbands, and pals are fantasizing about sucking tranny dick

I'm just sayin.

I've been getting many lovely letters from people who are digging my show. Thanks to all of you. I'm so glad it resonates with you. Of course every one in a hundred is from this guy or gal: "You are gay nearly" or "You shouldn't look girls up and down like that. It's rude" or "The reason you can't find a girl is on account of getting fucked in the ass by doms."

Okay geniuses, this lesson is for you. Listen up, it's a little complicated so I'm gonna go reeeeal slow.

I'm a straight man. All straight men look women up and down. God made us that way. Take it up with him if you have a problem with us checking you out to see if we should impregnate you to propagate the species. The same desire women have to doll themselves up so that our cocks will get hard and want to go in you to propagate the species is the same instinct we have to look at you. Straight Darwinian AND God stuff. Deal with it.


In general, gay men don't want to fuck trannies.

In general, gay men don't want to get fucked by doms wearing strap ons.

In general, gay guys... like to fuck other gay guys.

In general, women, gay or straight, don't want to fuck trannies.

In general, women, gay or straight, don't want to get fucked in the ass by doms wearing strap ons. (Obviously lesbians have a slightly higher proclivity of course but that's mainly in their pussies, not in their asses.)

In general, bi sexual guys like real cocks when they fuck guys and therefore don't go in for doms, some for trannies but less so than good ole regular gay guys.


Get it? There is a multi multi million dollar tranny escort (this means whore), porn, and dom industry and kids, I ain't that rich! That means that all those "straight" guys you know, your friends, family, macho guys at the gym, wall street guys, lawyers, blue collar... whatever... many of them are jerking off fantasizing about getting fucked by a dominatrix wearing a strap on, or a shemale.

And many are actually doing it too. I hate to break it to you, but that's just the fact. Millions of "straight" guys are paying all those dollars to support the tranny and dom industry, so if that makes us gay then the stats for gay America just skyrocketed.

The joys of giving over are obvious and plentiful to those of us straight guys who dabble. For those of you who don't or wish to judge, you might want to get your facts straight so you don't poison the world with anymore bullshit. We have way to much contaminating us already. ALL LOVE, namaste, xo e

I know what you're thinking... and yes. I have a name for my penis. I call it the octagon.

She is cute. I don't care if she used to be a man. I'm not all crazy like that. She needs a fashion makeover.
