Meh - she's attractive, but not all that. She has that nosejob/lip plump trans look. There really isn't anything special about her features - she's pleasant and attractive, that's it.
The other covers are Naomi Osaka and Meghan Thee Stallion.
If they used three white, Latino or Asian women, there would be outrage. But three African American 'women' - just fine. (Yes, I know Naomi is half-black).
I remember when Tyra Banks was the first AA woman on the cover - and deservedly. She melted the god damn pages.

But this is DL where people don't seem to understand axis of oppression (by sex, class, race, Etc.) U nless it's all about them personally. So let me rephrase it in a way your childish self might understand:
"Sorry, [... I] see it as long-overdue karma coming back to bite GAYS in their ass. GAYS have made any STRAIGHT institution they could find miserable for decades, and in most cases destroyed anything specific to STRAIGHTS, it didn't matter if those groups or institutions were truly HOMOPHOBIC or not.

R87, R88 and R89 You guys are right! If SI really wanted to be inclusive they would support the gay community by putting a proud, fit gay man on the front of their magazine in men's swim wear.
Putting this mutilated man in make up on the front of their magazine is not just for shock value, but it is also a way to exploit and drag (pun intended) gay men. It is in no way intended to be inclusive - just the opposite.
SI knows damn well that most gay men do not feel the need to mutilate themselves this way. Most gay men are happy with who they are and accept themselves. Only some others can't accept gays. Yet SI chooses the extremes of the gay community as the example of the "gay norm."
This cover is a way to subtley nod to their mostly heterosexual audience and say "see they're all freaks, trying to deceive people because they are not happy with who they are!"
Nobody is buying magazines anymore. And the few people who are buying them, are not doing so because of what is on the cover. Besides plenty of magazines (such as men's health) have good looking men on the cover and straight men don't seem to have a problem with that. Why not showcase the best (and most authentic) image of the gay community?
SI doesn't give a shit about gays that may be buying their magazine so gays should stop buying them.

That's not completely true. My mother had all of that, a good paying job as a private duty RN. Made more than my father who was an engineer. She had her own credit and basically managed the money. And back then they didn't hand out credit cards like candy like they do now. Salesmen who came to the house always asked for "the lady of the house" not the man, because the unwritten truth was woman were really the day to day decision makers. My sister was like the local high school track star on an all girls team at a public high school and they celebrated woman wanting to be in sports. Woman could be doctors if they wanted, men could not be nurses. Woman had their own woman only gyms, men had none. 70's was actually the pinnacle of sexuality being open with Planned Parenthood enjoying a positive disposition by most of society at the time (unlike today). Young girls could get birth control without parents consent at the age of 14.

Exactly r98. Also because their bodies are still not fully shaped like women's bodies so they have to make these exaggerated poses to look "bombshell" and hide their physical proportions. The whole facial expression is also exaggerated. The posters saying that this image will give straight men a hard on have a very shallow understanding of what straight men really find sexy.

R42, of course the wannabe wokes are all saying she's "hot". That's because they know she's trans and want to be seen to be PC, not because they genuinely believe that she's hot. As r98 points out, this whole image is very "blow up sex doll" like, it's almost a caricature version of a woman (which is indeed what trans are). Any actual female posing like this on the cover of SI or any magazine today would be considered trashy, but if it's a trans it's apparently "hot" and "gorgeous".

Not necessarily by a quick glance at that cover r109, which has been carefully laid out and heavily photoshopped. Still, the model's expression, vibe and pose suggest a strange idea of a woman in the 21st century. There's something not quite right, particularly in the face.
What you're forgetting r109, is that the real Leyna is a broad-shouldered, muscular, beard-growing, penised man who only looks the way she does now because of multiple plastic surgeries, hormone injections, fillers, layers of cosmetics and endless photoshop. What's in the pants never lies though.
I wish Leyna all the best and hope she has a happy and fulfilling life, but let's not pretend that what's on the cover is the "real" Leyna - the real Leyna is a dude. Any biological woman who had as much plastic surgery as Leyna would be laughed off the cover.

Don't some straight men watch trans porn and some seek out trans prostitutes? I mean I know the latter is probably a minority. But straight guys today have been so densensitized by internet porn and rule 34 art that I don't think they would care that much about this. But then again, it's mostly older men who buy SI Swimsuit editions anyway. The whole concept of it is horribly outdated, trans or not.
