A pre-school in Sweden is going to achieve gender equality. The idea is to remove any stimulation that might give the kids an idea of whether they’re boys or girls, according to society’s definition of these. Gendered toys will be available, but they’ll be “placed side by side to encourage a child to play with whatever he or Read the rest
Andrej Pejic, all-purpose androgynous model, has made #98 on FHM’s list of the world’s sexiest women .
A blurb online that accompanied Pejic’s picture read: “Designers are hailing him as the next big thing. We think ‘thing’ is quite accurate… The gender bender has jumped the gun in hoping he might one day be signed as a
