FHM puts Andrej Pejic on its sexiest women's list and refers to him as a thing

We were pretty pumped to learn that somewhat frat-tastic menís mag FHM had named gender-bending model Andrej Pejic the 98th sexiest woman in the world ó and so, apparently, was Andrej when he told New York Magazine about it at a book party last week. Unfortunately, as outwardly sexy as FHM might have found Andrej, their write up of him was a puerile mix of barf jokes and a severely heteronormative bias.
Pejicís page on the site has apparently disappeared (read: been taken down) but one savvy Tumblr user grabbed a screenshot. Hereís what it saidattached)

Thereís been no word from FHM about the piece or its subsequent removal. Taking it down was a step in the right direction, but addressing the issue would be even better. Was the writer reprimanded? Is FHM apologetic? Or just embarrassed? Because thereís a bit difference between the two.

I liked Andrej, but he is way over exposed. I'm tired of this whole androgynous trend.

Can't say I'm an Andrej fan, but FHM's attitude towards him is really quite offensive. It was just so unnecessary to include him on the list just to 'shame' him.

"Pass the sick bucket"? My mouth dropped when I read that line. This is grossly offensive and I hope the writer is reprimanded for his poor choice of words.

"One of the trends in fashion we won't be following."

Are they referring to Lea T. in specific and transgender models as a whole? This is very offensive & discriminative.

FHM is always the very definition for offensive and degrading, so them saying stuff like this doesn't surprise me in slightest. Haven't seen one issue that didn't mention something stereotypical, racist, sexist, homophobic or downright ignorant in their pages. I think they only avoid lawsuits because being "blunt" is their trademark, just like putting sexy babes on their pages.

While I'm not big fan of Andrej and know of him casually this is disgusting, but what can you expect from such publication... but it does bring more attention to him and this "trend."

SMH FHM. Then again, I didn't expect anything better from the pigs who are behind that publication.
