Stas Fedyanin, a 17-year-old man from Moscow, is building a successful career in fashion business as an international female body model due to an androgynous tall, slim figure that makes him perfect for the job. But besides his obvious feminine traits he is also praised for his talent in front of the camera.
Fedyanin said, "Model agencies like my face, they like my cool runway walk, they like strong character because I'm living in Russia". He commented on how Russians see him, "People in Russia don't understand my look, [or] my feelings, and that's really bad because people hate me in Russia"
Fedyanin started his model career when he was 15. According to his official web site Fedyanin has never had a plastic surgery and never followed any diet. Although Fedyanin has fans in Russia, some ill-wishers started disturbing him and even threatening the life of the rising star. He says that going out for him is becoming a bigger problem because of the Russian government's policy on homosexuality (although Stas is heterosexual). This is also, according to Fedyanin, because of negative public attitude to extraordinary looking people who are frequently called 'freaks'.
But in Europe, America and Japan, Stas Fedyanin is appreciated by model agencies and has a lot of business offers there. He's now getting ready for more than a month-long trip to Germany to take part in a series of photo sessions.
And to all the Putinists who wish he died in his home country... screw all of you. He should have the right to be transgender. I hope that one day gays in Russia can live freely in their home country. Greetings from USA. 🏳️🌈🇺🇸🇷🇺
I could have been one of these models when I was younger. But when I was younger there was no such thing. I used to have flawless skin. People would ask me if I was wearing makeup even when I wasn't. I'm too old now and I don't have the skin I once had although people don't believe me when I tell them how old I am. Now I am a m-f pre-op transsexual living full time as a female.
skin and bones, yet, you're right - much better than those specimen with four stomachs. Though, I'm not sure which side is better. Perhaps, too fat is too ugly, and even uglier than too thin. Though, if she's not too fat, she is much better than the walking dead in the fashion industry. PS i meant crossing a 90 kg line.
Men and women have at their disposal an array of resources for generating greater knowledge of truth so that their lives may be ever more human. Among these is philosophy, which is directly concerned with asking the question of lifes meaning and sketching an answer to it. Philosophy emerges, then, as one of noblest of human tasks. According to its Greek etymology, the term philosophy means "love of wisdom". Born and nurtured when the human being first asked questions about the reason for things and their purpose, philosophy shows in different modes and forms that the desire for truth is part of human nature itself. It is an innate property of human reason to ask why things are as they are, even though the answers which gradually emerge are set within a horizon which reveals how the different human cultures are complementary.
Philosophys powerful influence on the formation and development of the cultures of the West should not obscure the influence it has also had upon the ways of understanding existence found in the East. Every people has its own native and seminal wisdom which, as a true cultural treasure, tends to find voice and develop in forms which are genuinely philosophical. One example of this is the basic form of philosophical knowledge which is evident to this day in the postulates which inspire national and international legal systems in regulating the life of society.
Nonetheless, it is true that a single term conceals a variety of meanings. Hence the need for a preliminary clarification. Driven by the desire to discover the ultimate truth of existence, human beings seek to acquire those universal elements of knowledge which enable them to understand themselves better and to advance in their own self-realization. These fundamental elements of knowledge spring from the wonder awakened in them by the contemplation of creation: human beings are astonished to discover themselves as part of the world, in a relationship with others like them, all sharing a common destiny. Here begins, then, the journey which will lead them to discover ever new frontiers of knowledge. Without wonder, men and women would lapse into deadening routine and little by little would become incapable of a life which is genuinely personal.
