Playboy's First Transgender Playmate Unveiled

Kristin TateRebel Buzz Contributor

The November issue of Playboy will feature the magazine's first transgender playmate. 

Playboy said in its announcement...

To the astute playboy reader, and to anyone who keeps tabs on the fashion world, Ines Rau may look familiar. Ines has graced these pages before: Our May 2014 issue came with playboy a-z, a special edition that had an extra special significance for the French-born model. Photographed fully nude by Ryan McGinley, Ines dominates a spread titled Evolution; the accompanying copy surveys humanity’s halting shift toward acceptance of gender identities beyond the male-female binary. For Ines, the story was a turning point.

“It’s how I celebrated my coming out, actually,” she says, revisiting the Rabbit three years later. “I took that chance, and then I signed with an agency.”

Fashion chops aside, Ines is a hippie, a tomboy and a party girl—but no matter her mood, feeling sexy is a permanent state of mind. “I love to be sexy, but sexy is an attitude. I don’t know if I’m allowed to say it, but I really feel sexy all the time!” Just as important, she’s a tenacious advocate with no shortage of causes. “I will always fight for LGBTQ rights and women’s rights,” she says, “but above everything else, my cause is the environment. Nothing touches me more than fighting against global warming. I was made to fight for the planet—the forest, the animals, the air. If I get famous, that’s my first battle.”

 

In the past, Playboy has remained popular by playing off of men's fantasies; it remains to be seen how the decision to feature a transgender playmate will affect the magazine's subscription numbers. So far, many readers don't seem thrilled...

The magazine's move comes only weeks after the death of Hugh Hefner, the magazine's founder. The November issue celebrates Hefner's life on its cover. 

Playboy has struggled to keep its subscription numbers up during recent years. After its leadership decided to stop publishing nude photos in 2016, subscription sales fell 23 percent. Eventually the magazine flip-flopped on that decision when it became clear the move was hurting the business.

What do you think of Playboy's decision to introduce a transgender playmate? Let us know in the comments section below.

I was just wondering if you were still salivating over girls with nuts.. maybe you took the right pills this time abd don’t think transvestites are so sexy anymore..
good that means your growing up.!!

you’re the worst kind of bigot and racist… You hate your own kind.. by the way.. I’m native.. born on the Rez you’re actually more pathetic than I thought possible.!! I take it back I don’t feel sorry for you at all.. just a natural disgust at all lying creatures that are attracted to girls with testicles and to think real wealth comes from the wallets of their parents.. And by the way the Bible wasn’t written by man it was written by God and if you’ve ever read it you would understand how that could be so.

Your attempts at one upmanship are pathetic if not entertaining and and your ability to comprehend along with situational awareness has been seriously impeded by the mosquito bites you got while you were in Florida if you think either of those two places are safe.. and if you are but I doubt it really as affluent as you say you are you got that way by robbing, cheating, and taking advantage of the people that I speak for and represent.. you are beyond contempt… But your posts are all odd and they all have a certain flow to them and I’m really beginning to wonder if I’m a victim of an internet troll with artificial intelligence.. either way… by making yourself rich off the backs/misfortunes of the little people it makes it was cold and lifeless as a drone anyway..

“And may I say again for the record you can’t read or you can’t extrapolate information from the written word… I live in an upscale neighbourhood and have a recreational summer home… But I do concern myself with the little people whose lives are influenced/affected for the worse by more powerful people making decisions that affect them.!! Maybe you would find all that out if you would read my whole post.!! You’re becoming boring and tiresome and you reposts are repetitive and extraneous as well as nonsensical.. enjoy your life of delusion”

Not too sure where you found anything about racism and bigotry in this post or any others for that matter… You are an incredible piece of work as well as a liar and a very pious hypocrite and judging by your writing skills you don’t have enough on the ball to own anything more than comic books and bubblegum wrappers let alone international property..
Yer probably queer as well but aren’t quite sure if you want your boyfriend or your imaginary wife..
Seriously you need to get some help and perhaps change the flavour of the medication that you’re on right now because you are delusional with no ability to comprehend as well you were suffering from a random intermittent psychosis that makes you believe everybody that’s white is a racist and a bigot.. i’m sure you have many other disorders as well periodic violent fits of rage.!!
And frankly Frank… Do you even have a job.?? Most leftists don’t as they prefer to live off the backs of real people that work while cemented in the belief that if they can do that they were obviously superior to the host that their parasitic nature feeds from.!!

If you can be relaxed and calm through every minute of your life while this is going on you’re probably on Prozac.. or your kids are after you or your lifestyle is confusing the hell out of them..!!

Who can relax when there’s pill addicted
Transgender, queer loving reprobate perverts like you ready to pounce on any opportunity to provide our children with your creepy indoctrination to challenge their moral upbringing with your moral and sodomite loving ways..
We could all relax if there wasn’t people like you always trying to ice skate uphill.!!

Do you actually read what you type before you hit post?

Your entire post below is a rambling incoherent mess of crazy and absolute idiocy. You seriously have some mental issues that need to be dealt with. That’s the only takeaway here.

And you are a lying piece of shit.. you don’t own anything that your mother hasn’t given you.!! You even admitted as much when you said you can’t worry about things you’ve never experienced .!!

No, your problem is that you are a bigot and racist and don’t like your communities becoming less white.

Life of delusion? You believe in a Bible that was written by man to keep weak minded people in check through fear. Mission accomplished as far as you are concerned.

I own property in Canada, New York and Florida. I have no desire to do farming – I am a city slicker and I do business all over the world.

No Frank… I’m not a" get off my lawn" I’m more like a get off my back and get out and earn your own goddamn living fucking liberal freeloaders.. Personally I don’t think you’re smart enough to live on a farm well maybe you’re smart enough to live on a farm but you’re certainly not smart enough to operate it so it must be your mom’s farm … Most farmers are free independent thinkers and freedom loving as well as support the Second Amendment that the USA has and your none of these..

No I think you’re the kind that never leaves your high-rise…

Paul Taylor,

How many times does this need to be repeated. Hef chose the model and approved of it prior to his death.
commented 2017-10-23 10:10:11 -0400
Ol Heff’s body wasn’t even cold yet and some sick dip-shit put a “transmutant” in the iconic magazine.

Heff must be just spinning in his grave over this.

Leviticus 20:13,

I am only commenting on things YOU brought up. What I would experience if I went into YOUR neighbourhood and how horrible Canada has become to YOU.

That is not MY Canada.

Yes, there is crime and horrible people and terrible things that happen. I never said Canada was some utopia, but I don’t feel any different now than I did in the 80’s in the sense of needing to live in fear like you do.

You are also making assumptions that are not accurate. I am hardly at home beyond sleeping and on weekends, so no I don’t live a Howard Hughes life where I have locked myself in my home and cut off all contact with the outside world.

Have you considered that I may live in a better part of Canada – even with you being well off and living on a farm or whatever?

Considering you are so uptight on The Rebel, I have to assume that you are equally as uptight when it comes to day to day life. You are not young, open minded and freewheeling anymore. You are “get off my lawn”.
commented 2017-10-23 02:00:08 -0400
I don’t think you read so good either that or your having difficulties extrapolating basic information from the written word… My life is not only safe but I am very well-off.. I have a summer home on 5 acres right next to a very popular recreational lake and a full-time residence in an upscale community… I however happen to feel for people who maybe don’t have all the advantages that I have and I have an intense dislike of assumptions provided by other people that make the hardships to the little people even harder..!6 Canada is neither safe or is it getting any safer… it is definitely safer than some places but it’s not the Utopia that you’re deluding to unless your entire existence where you live, work, recreate and procreate in the same high-rise building without ever having to leave it… Ya.. I think that describes the environment of your “safe and happy space/place.” You are delusional as well as repetitive and I’m beginning to believe perhaps you are illiterate as well making you very opinionated with little or no education or life experiences beyond that of your television set and mainstream media and obviously uninformed friends .. I guess that’s the norm for people who spend their entire lives never leaving their high-rise lifestyle or challenging the boundaries of what they thought they knew.!

“I can’t be afraid of things that don’t exist for me. You are talking about things that I don’t experience at all”.

Are you even aware that anything else exists because you’ve never experienced those things either.??!

It’s unfortunate that YOUR Canada is a living hell for you.

If you were speaking metaphorically – your comments make even less sense now.

My neighbourhood is very big – no shrinking, safe and incredibly friendly. Again, no reason to live in fear like you do at all.

I am sorry you are so afraid.
commented 2017-10-22 19:34:08 -0400
I guess you didn’t understand that I was speaking metaphorically so I made that clear in my post below… As where I live.?? I have two homes… I have a Four season summer house next to a recreational lake in Saskatchewan and I live in a very quiet upscale urban community in Alberta.!! Please don’t apologize at all or where I live.. I guess One must possess futuristic linear vision to understand how things evolve when man puts his hands on it… I think it’s me did feel sorry for you.!!
commented 2017-10-22 19:28:08 -0400
Yeah I’m sure… The little bit of real estate that you think your control and you believe you’re incredibly safe…
Go on living your delusion but I don’t think you get it when I was speaking metaphorically… My neighbourhood grows in size every day and your’s will shrink to nothing.
That is what’s happening before your eyes and you don’t even see it.!!

It doesn’t sound like you live in a good neighbourhood if someone is going to steal my watch and harass my wife.

I don’t have that problem where I live and it’s incredibly safe. I have zero reason to live in fear like apparently you do.

That’s a sad way to live.
commented 2017-10-22 02:48:17 -0400
Like I said fucker don’t tell me Canada is safe anymore.!! All neighbourhoods used to be safe but in my neighbourhood at least our women feel safe from little men like you. And actually our children feel safe from guys like you to in my hood too.!!
Looks like you haven’t got to many places left to hide..
commented 2017-10-21 23:56:38 -0400
But your women.. I must say your women just love tough guys .. they like the rich boyfriend’s money but when their bored to come to my hood and bring your money with them.!!
