FHM Magazine’s annual Top 100 Sexiest Women in the World list caused quite a stir in the fashion industry and offended more than a few readers.

Andrej Pejic, the increasingly famous male model who has walked in both men’s and women’s fashion shows, was voted into the 98th slot of the Top 100 Sexiest Women list – but not without heavy controversy. FHM clearly disagreed with its readers, who appreciate Pejic’s androgynous attitude. The magazine wrote, “Designers are hailing [Pejic] as the next big thing, and we think ‘thing’ is quite accurate.”

An equally harsh portion of the blurb reads: “The gender bender has jumped the gun in hoping he might one day be signed as a Victoria’s Secret Model (pass the sick bucket).”

The outrage sparked by these rude comments led FHM to remove the entry about Pejic from their site, but the print version is still running the offensive story in this month’s issue.

In response to the drama, an FHM spokesperson explained to the Telegraph, “Regrettably the copy accompanying Andrej’s online entry wasn’t subbed prior to going live. Once we realised, we removed it immediately and apologised for any offence caused.”

The controversy still brings to attention Pejic’s androgynous “gender-bending” career. “Sometimes I feel like more of a woman, other times I feel male,” Pejic has said. “I’m sure most people think of me as a woman. It doesn’t bother me anymore and I feel fine about it… I don’t consider my looks unusual.”

We don’t see a problem in Pejic’s career choices, and it’s uncanny how well he carries women’s clothes! His bone structure is flawless; in fact he looks better than half the female models out there…

What do you think?
