James Charles Says He's Not "Full Gay" Because He's Been Into Trans Men

In a new video, makeup artist and influencer James Charles made a transphobic remark in reference to his own sexuality, and sounded pretty stupid in the process.

The video, called "THE TRUTH... My Crush Does My Makeup," was a collaboration with Jeff Wittek where Wittek does Charles' makeup while the two answer questions. In one conversation, Charles teaches Wittek about the Kinsey Scale and notes that he's a 5.5. "So you're not even full gay," Wittek says, which leads to Charles explaining that there have "been girls in the past who I've thought were very, very beautiful. There's also been trans guys in the past, too, that I was really, really into for a moment in time." So, where he could have taken a moment to describe the fluidity of gender and sexuality, Charles instead stuck to a very trans-exclusionary understanding of gender as it pertains to his own sexuality. By saying that he's not "full gay" because he's been attracted to trans men, Charles effectively said that he doesn't consider trans men to be actual men. Which is not only completely wrong, but just plain offensive. OUT Staff Writer Rose Dommu said it best when she wrote on Twitter that Charles' comment "sister sucks."

Charles has since apologized, saying that the "implication that my trans brothers & sisters arent [sic] valid," is "NOT what I was trying to say." He continues: "You are valid in your identity!! I apologize & should've chosen my words wiser!" Yes, he should've.

If he’s putting his penis in a vagina - even a vagina with a surgically altered clitoris meant to resemble a baby penis on a woman who has had elective mastectomies and taken hormones for muscle and body hair - he’s right, he’s not “full gay”.

Now if he got pegged by the tranny, that’s a different story.

R12, 'Rose' Dommu is mentioned in OP's article. He's criticising popular gayling James Charles for not recognising female trans who pretend to be gay men as "real gay men". Dommu is the founder of the delightfully named "Culture Whore" party planning company in Brooklyn. He's also a 'prolific writer'. I checked out Dommu’s “writings”. Have a read, his essay is both funny, ridiculous and scary. His writing style is a mixture of Bret Easton Ellis and E. L. James:

“Trans people undergoing hormone replacement therapy are, in a way, cyborgs… I started chemically transitioning exactly 1 year ago. Living in New York City, access was EASY: I made a trip to my local queer health center (they exist), talked to a doctor about my experience with gender dysphoria, and MOMENTS LATER had an appointment to begin hormone replacement therapy (HRT).

[bold]I chose to be [an Estrogen] shot girl because there seemed to be something PUNK about SHOOTING UP with estrogen once a week, plus I'm a bit of a masochist.[/bold] My first shot was a magical experience; as I sent up a prayer of gratitude to the Goddess and aligned my spirit with a wavelength of feminine energy, the balding nurse told me to "take your pants off, man." Tears welled up in my eyes as I finally communed with the physical embodiment of divine femininity and the nurse exited as quickly as possible. After 3 weeks of administered shots, I was given a tutorial and started administering them myself.

It took a month or so before I was really able to measure the changes in my energy, mental processes and emotional landscape. Blockers left me LAZY and LETHARGIC, unable to do anything more ambitious then walk the 2 blocks from my apartment to Popeyes. Estrogen made me moody one day, ecstatic the next. The day or two after I took my shot came with an incredible high; I felt vibrant and feminine, food tasted better, the world seemed brighter. As the estrogen slowly leached out of my system, I’d be white-knuckling it until I could feel human again. I was an emotionally unstable, irritable BITCH the day leading up to my next shot.

[bold]My sex drive disappeared almost immediately after beginning HRT, my body no longer producing testosterone. It wasn't only that I didn't feel like having sex, the absence of desire was total. Gone was the aimless need to hunt for DICK. I deleted my hook up apps and suddenly had hours, days, weeks where I never once thought about sex - or men at all, really.[/bold] The testosterone-driven desire to hunt down PREY had evaporated. [bold]But as the weeks wore on I had new desires: recurring dreams of someone stroking my hair in SOFT CANDLELIGHT, the need to cuddle with and show physical affection to my friends.[/bold]

After 2 months, the physical changes really started to kick in. My nipples became so sore that some days even the weight of my t-shirt was unbearable. I had sex one day when I was bored and remembered that fucking was a thing and when the boy suckled at my budding breasts I whited out in agony. Once, a car door hit my nipple and I almost passed out from the pain.

The changes to my body were subtle, but shocking over time … But that also meant that when people still looked at me and assumptively gendered me as male, it hurt so much worse. Being misgendered causes you to question your entire reality. [bold]I’d walk out of my apartment TITS OUT, full face of MAKEUP, feeling FULL CUNT and my Uber driver (confession: I re-downloaded Uber after I ran out of Lyft credits, sorry) says "Where to, SIR?”[/bold].”

by Anonymousreply 16Last Monday at 3:42 PM

Dommu’s bizarre essay continues:

“Now my voice is something I obsess about, and it’s the thing that makes people clock me more than anything. I’d never wanted FFS (Facial Feminization Surgery, essentially having your FACE CRACKED OPEN as to no longer look like a dude), but after a few friends got it and I saw the equally subtle and dramatic ways it changed them [bold]I was dying to go under the knife.[/bold] …

After a year undergoing hormone replacement therapy, I believe I have enough objective insight to make some generalizations about men and women, or at least about people with predominantly estrogen in their system versus people with predominantly testosterone. [bold]Testosterone made me feel predatory and impulsive, but I was also more easily able to separate myself from emotion and operate with cool logic. Estrogen has made me more empathic and emotional[/bold], which has also meant that strong emotions have the power to completely overwhelm me until I literally cannot deal with the world around me.

Most days I feel like a biohacker..."

Alright folks, here's the truth:"

1. As anyone post-puberty instinctively knows, females cannot "identify" their way into a gay males' dating pool, because gay males are attracted to the same SEX (not same gender).

2. There is ZERO chance that this makeup twink will EVER be with a female, "trans man" or "straight woman." This is obviously a branding move! His market is virtually 100% under-20's, and if that market demanded their idols be interested in "fill in the blank," then he would pretend to be interested in that too. Do you think he can just come out and say "Dicks only, please <3!" No, he's playing the game, but I guarantee that will NEVER translate to actually fucking a trans.

Carry on.

Lol, he thinks he is a ‘Kinsey 5’? This is a potential trans in my opinion; watch out for his/her coming out in a couple of years. A Kinsey 5 who *only wants to Fuck str8 identified men. Indeed he has gone on record as saying he isn’t interested in gay men. Why isn’t he being called out for his homophobia as much as his ‘transphobia’? It’s outrageous that he acknowledges that pussy is female, but it isn’t that he doesn’t want to fuck gay men because he doesn’t think they are masculine enough? He has stated this, I’m not putting words in his mouth btw
