Trans YouTuber Nikita Dragun has called out Victoria's Secret and we are here for it! Dragun made her own "fantasy" commercial after some disparaging comments were made by the brand's marketing officer.



Ed Razek, the chief marketing officer for Victoria's Secret, was quoted in a Vogue article as saying:

"It's like, why doesn't your show do this? Shouldn't you have transsexuals in the show? No. No, I don't think we should. Well, why not? Because the show is a fantasy. It's a 42-minute entertainment special. That's what it is. It is the only one of its kind in the world, and any other fashion brand in the world would take it in a minute, including the competitors that are carping at us."

Razek has since apologized for the comments with a statement released on the Victoria's Secret Twitter.



This sentiment still didn't sit right with Nikita Dragun.



She produced the video in three days, wearing a high-end Fantasy Bra. It's received millions of views, and hundreds of thousands of likes and retweets.

And it has people stanning the absolute Queen!













Some people couldn't quite keep their transphobic comments to themselves, but they were quickly shut down.





Dragun has said this is not a call to hate Victoria's Secret. She's calling out the idea a trans woman can't sell the "fantasy."



Dragun gained a following on YouTube with her makeup tutorials in 2014. She revealed she was transgender in 2015. She still produces makeup videos, but now also posts life vlogs.

There are few things more annoying than when you are seeking advice and someone responds with a boring platitude that helps no one. Believe it or not, if you choose to provide advice, it needs to be specific to the situation and shouldn't be dressed up in trite phrasing. Does saying, "Keep your head up" actually contribute anything if that's all you have to say when someone comes to you in search of a listening ear?

But this goes deeper than just advice, to be fair. Some of us are sick of greedy corporations that stress the importance of being a "family" while refusing to pay proper wages. Still more of us are tired of people using certain language when other language can suffice.

After Redditor BensReddits asked the online community, "What is a phrase you absolutely hate hearing?" people shared their stories.

Dating is difficult––and truth be told, I don't know how anyone can do it right now, what with a pandemic going on and all. Just the thought stresses me out. Dating is especially hard for people who defy expectations in a heteronormative society. Take bisexuals, for example.

We all know someone who really cannot figure out even the most basic thing without copious amounts of help. But when you meet someone who is completely and totally past all help, how do you even begin to try to help them get along?
