NSFW: Tyson Beckford Gets Steamy With Transgender Model Ines Rau

By  |  83 Comments

Check out these stunning images of male supermodel Tyson Beckford getting steamy with transgender model, Ines Rau. Yes, you read that right … TRANSGENDER MODEL. The shots were snapped by photographer Rodolfo Martinez for the “Tropical Surrealism” issue of OOB magazine.

Rau says her Facebook and Instagram account were shutdown over the sultry images, writing online:

“I’m not posting anything about it anymore … You know where to see it! And I am taking a pause with Instagram for a little bit as they disabled it two times because of those pictures.”

Rau is a Parisian model of French-North African descent.

    It’s still a man! I reject the programming.

    • ChristinaCLOWES

      You disgusting vile creature! This is a person you’re referring to, not an inanimate object! How dare you refer to another human being as “it”! Go crawl back under your rock

      • PeterDarker

        Yet you just called him a disgusting creature? Practice what you preach.

        • ChristinaCLOWES

          It’s not the same thing! This person referred to another person in dehumanizing terms! That is just wrong no matter what your beliefs or convictions!

          • PeterDarker

            Dehumanizing. Like calling a human a creature? Do ya…do ya see where I’m going? Do ya get what I’m trying to say? Flip it. Flip it for real.

          • 3-I

            You’re right, calling someone who said something horrible a moderately nasty name is TOTALLY the same thing as reducing a person to an inanimate object because you’re obsessed with their genitals instead of their person.

            Equivocation: The last refuge of those who know they’re wrong.

          • Alea Angelique

            By a definition of creature a creature is a living being. There are so many different kinds of creatures in this world.

            crea·ture (krchr)
            n.
            1. Something created.

            2.
            a. A living being, especially an animal: land creatures; microscopic creatures in a drop of water.
            b. A human.
            c. An imaginary or fantastical being: mythological creatures; a creature from outer space.
            3. One dependent on or subservient to another.

          • PeterDarker

            Did you miss the “disgusting” part? Did you not see that? Or is this selective sight? All of your mothers should have stopped in at the clinic. I hate you humans. All humans. Kill yo self!

          • Alea Angelique

            sigh… I’m just saying, it’s reactionary, defensive and offensive. There are surely better ways to react. The disgusting part is insulting, no? but it’s her perspective… The creature part is not by definition dehumanizing and I don’t think that was the way she meant it, I think emphasis was on disgusting because she was crying out against narrow minded people judging. Neither is dehumanizing. Certainly you can call someone a disgusting creature, or a beautiful, magical creature without being “dehumanizing”.

            It might not be the most productive way to react, a lot like “I hate you humans” isn’t the most productive way to react. and “kill yourself” or “your mothers should have stopped in at the clinic”?!? Are really unproductive things to say…. and I would think that it doesn’t even effect the way most people feel, it just sounds sad.

            Humans are disgusting, and beautiful, and magical and flawed. All humans are not worth hating. They make music, and art, and do wonderful things for each other. There are so many possibilities. And we are getting closer and closer to mass acceptance of the choice we have in life to identify as whatever we wish, being whatever race we are, whatever gender we resonate with, and whatever sexual orientation we are. and that is good. It’s taken us long enough, and obviously the struggle isn’t over, but we are getting closer and closer to the mass population accepting people that are different as being. just being. who and what they are.

      • Alea Angelique

        Nicky clearly wasn’t calling her an it, he was saying; They’re (as in bigots) are programmed into it (hate) by the bigots before them!!

        He wasn’t commentating on their sex, he was commentating on the part of the thread that spun off and went on about human beings programming other human beings to be hateful and judgmental. (or brainwashing if you share an ignorant “wow. amazing!” insulted reaction to the term “programming”)

        I say we are all individual and unique people (yes, creatures, in it’s non-pejorative meaning) and we all identify ourselves as, and with, unlimited things. What sex we are born as isn’t the only thing that defines us, and we as human beings are mutable. We have the ability and technology to change ourselves, inside and out.

        That creature, my dears, wants to be and is a woman.

        It’s no ones place to decide weather or not that is right for her, and from where I sit it is RIGHT!!!!!

        (not “it” as in “she” lol, the all encompassing “it”, like “they”… but not pertaining to her sex)

        THEY ARE BEEEAAAAUUUUUTTTTTIIIIIFFFFFUUUUULLLLL!!!

        We all are, but those individuals are fine specimens, and I am grateful for their sharing.

        (my above use of the word ignorant was meant literally. So many people on the internet jump the gun, judge, react hatefully, and flip the fuck out because well, maybe they have nothing better to do, or maybe the world really is that sad… but I have more faith than that. I don’t usually post to threads at all, but scrolling down the commentary reacting to these photos and seeing all the ugly people were throwing around at each other, often missing what the other was even trying to convey was sad. It’s also sad to me that the person trying to defend gender bending the most (a woman married to a trans m2f) was being just as hateful in her reaction as the person who was judging, and in my opinion he wasn’t even bashing, just sharing his own narrow viewpoint.

        We need to lift each other up, so they can open they’re minds to other perspectives. Not all of us are naturally so open minded, and a lot of closed minded behavior spawns from not knowing, not understanding why, or fear. We can change the way we project our outlooks, to be more compassionate and educating, and we can do it with grace. Then maybe people will have a better opportunity to really SEE.

        Even if someone comes to you with hate you don’t have to react that way, then, you are only letting them eat you. It’s a hard practice. But its worth practicing.

        Because beauty is really inside us and we can share it.
        Not to sound like too much of a hippy or whatever.

        • ChristinaCLOWES

          I wasn’t replying to Nicky…I was replying to STORM

          • Alea Angelique

            well I agree with you there. storms reaction to this is frustrating at best. I kind of overlooked the “it” part because of the whole “rejecting the programming” bit which was so absurd to me.

            It was late, I was tired, and missed that for some reason. Still. nobodies gonna get it if you just call them names in return.
            It just puts you on their level.

            I can’t believe that I am actually participating in this thread… I never feed into it, I just thought that maybe someone would hear me and that I might do some good… Every time I watch a youtube video, or anything on the internet, if I bother to read the reviews and look at the comments I am always disgusted with how uninformed, closed minded, and full of hate people are. 9 times out of 10 the way people react to it is just as hateful and closed minded. I do not agree with the hate that spews out of people freely in regards to gender, sex, and sexuality. But you know… I like to think that we are nearing a time where the people that think in such a confined little box will be out numbered by those who see beauty in all of it’s many many shapes and packages.

    • Andreia

      So being a human being has something to do with programming? so human beings are programmed to be bigots? wow. amazing.

      • Nicky

        Humans are programmed to be bigots. I saw this great shirt in Asheville, NC that said, “no child is born a racist.” They’re taught that hate. They’re programmed into it by other bigots. Shame.

    • Mike Hughes

      You need to be re-programmed

    • Lou

      Stop Hating :) promote equality instead.

    • dingleberry productions

      not your business to reject. both of them are who they are.

    • Amanda

      I have been married to a Male to Female transgender women for 8 years, and she is very much a women, who are you to judge you piece of shit.

      • Ladonna

        Why are you so angry. It’s HIS opinion. It’s amazing how someone is a “bigot” when they don’t agree with someone else’s lifestyle. Get over it, he’s a man. You know it and I know it. ACCEPT it and move the hell on.

        • 3-I

          Uh. I’m sorry, it’s bigotry to judge someone based on what you think their lifestyle is. Also, “you know it and I know it, accept it.” Kthxno.

        • Jay

          YOU are on Point Preach to these people on here !!!!!!!!!!

    • Alea Angelique

      No one is programming you or anyone else to believe anything false or untrue. It is a choice of hers and many many people in this world to adapt her physical attributes to what she identifies with on her interior.

      It’s a matter of respect and acceptance of that choice.

      She just might have an amazing and powerful personality that makes you really like her, and if you didn’t know that at birth she didn’t have this gender maybe, just maybe you would see the PERSON there. Not the other details. Because it’s not our choice to dictate what another person does with their body, and it’s really daft to judge.

    • Jay

      LOVE IT STORM !!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

  • jehovah yahweh jones

    wow she looks incredible

  • Jay

    He posed with another man it doesnt matter what surgery you have God made her a male at birth not female but if that is what Tyson wanted to do then that is his business

    • Amanda

      wow your an idiot. My wife of 8 years is a Transgender women…fuck you and your bigoted ways..asshat

      • Jay

        lol call me what u want Like I said this model and whatever ur wife is not what they are GOD made them how he wanted to be they changed that on their own. so take ur ass on with ur wife/husband whatever u r married to

        • Amanda

          she is my WIFE. and we don’t believe in your god, so it doesn’t really affect us. She is a women, who she was meant to be, and I am a lesbian who I was meant to be, nothing to do with your god…and i’m sure IF there was a heaven, your judging hateful ass wouldn’t even make it to the gates, because isn’t there a rule in there somewhere, your not suppose to judge or you get judged? Typical dumb ass christian, always picking and choosing what to believe and using God as an excuse to be a piece of shit. every hateful comment towards equality, 9 times out of 10 it’s one of you bible thumpers…lol

          • Elizabeth Beauvil

            preach girl

          • RB

            Ok I understand the surgery, the changing of the ID, not being mentally comfortable in your skin, so on and so forth. But what I think Jay was saying is genetically no matter what you cut off, or put on, that is a male according to his XY make up. So yes, we can call him a female, he can have breast implants, even lactate due to pills. But at the end of it all… he’s a man. Scientifically speaking, bottom line. Point blank. And until a transgender male can give birth… it is what it is.

          • Lady V

            By that logic, a woman who cannot give birth is not, in fact, a woman?

          • Jay

            A man is a man and a woman is a woman. Whatever you came out your mother’s womb as that is what you will always be considered bottom line.

          • Moiz

            Please go die. I am from a Muslim family and even we are not as hateful as you are contrary to popular perception. My mother’s biology teacher in college was a transgender woman in a Muslim majority country and I’m from Pakistan. Stop being so retarded. If your religion teaches you to respect God’s design, then respect it. How can you claim to love God if you don’t love His creation? And on that note I am a doctor and intersex babies are born 1 in 7000. That is a very frequent happening. Please get some education on the matter before commenting.

          • Jon

            So infertile women shouldn’t be considered women because they can’t give birth?

          • Alea Angelique

            They should be considered whatever they want to be.

          • Alea Angelique

            On a scientific level. But we don’t define ourselves with science alone. We can become tattooed, or not. We can become redheads, brunettes, blondes. We can become tan, or thin, or fat. We can become so many things. Some of them our choices, some of them not.

            Scientifically it doesn’t matter.
            Emotionally, spiritually, psychologically and physically if you feel like a woman and define yourself as such then I think you ought to be given that respect and acceptance. Why not? It’s not your life, or your body. It IS what it IS!!!

            Where do chromosomes come into how someone chooses to define themselves? Can we see each others chromosomes or genetic makeup with our plain sight? Would it really matter if we could?

            We are all so different and can be so beautiful, and to me the physicality of beauty is only a fraction of it.

          • Yuge

            So what you’re saying is that women who can’t give birth for medical reasons are men?

          • Jay

            Well said RB!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!! these pple will never understand that………

          • Alea Angelique

            of course people understand that! It’s quite simple.

            That doesn’t mean that you can’t show respect and accept that what sex they were born as and what their chromosomes or genetic makeup tell us about them is not what they identify themselves as.

            aint nothing wrong with that. why hate?

          • Michael Stanton

            AMEN alea!!!!!

          • Constance

            Actually there are eleven “normal” genders science recognizes if you’re talking about chromosomes and that doesn’t compensate for intersex, chromosomal irregularities and genetic malformations. So the chromosome argument is useless. Your argument is invalid. Thanks for playing. Try again later. Good try though, RB.

          • lance hammer

            it dont work that way. check “science”. and never mind the Xy Xx talk. gender’s constructed, undertandably. less common ways will get judged in a judgemental/rigid culture that doesnt know what to do with it.

            A long BBC interveiw/reporting with multiple forced trans people in Iran and the diaspora—Turkey, UK, etc proves the point. This isn’t as black and white as it seems at least on bigotted terms. It’s black and white whether you ascribe to fundamentalist viewpoints and force them on yourself or others, vs. accepting you as you or others as others. But let’s look at how fundamentalism harms because the rulebook can’t incorporate unconditional love, as if even a mainstream judeo/christian/muslim .. or hindu etc. etc. version of God doesn’t know anything compassion and acceptance of the animals – us primate/hominids included!

            in Iran, someone gay is often forced to get a gender reassignment or face death in family-committed honour killings. Shitty surgery is condoned, forced, and then they say ‘now you’re a woman go be a wife’ etc, or man depending on case.

            then you can have a gay male, who doesn’t consider themselves a woman trapped in male body, a guy who is a guy who is attracted to guys, forced to be a female. And live in a hell, body-wise, so they’re family can maintain. Imagine, straight guys like me, waking up in a hack job of a woman’s body, being told you have to go be a femme lesbian. It makes no sense to us. Its like something out of a concentration camp Dr. horror story. Or American Horror story for that matter. Ick.

            But they go under the knife, under the pressure. So they dont risk the flight to Turkey. So they are not either murdered or left alone by their family. All so the sick rigidity and outright blindered selfishness that isfundamentalim can go on (and fundamentalism at its core is the same in evangelical christianity, ultra orthodox judaism, hinduism, whatever… the lack of faith in a god that loves everyone as they are made: the religious fundamentalism can go on to remain unpunctured. Except the poor souls who are born. The officially sanctioned genetic/moral/sexual viewpoint can maintain its veneer. It is truly insane: the denial of reality.

            This is so that, as the Ayatolah said when visiting the US, they can say don not have homosexuality in Iran. (3,5,10% of the pop. will be gay, a smaller number will be born into the opposite gender’s body, and a bunch will have combinations and situations that are either unique or cluster into patterns but are too … subtle or unpopular for us to even get in the grade 3 reading-level media. Hell, a kid raised in a culture with family or community members who are accepted as ‘two-spirited’ or any form of gender/sexuality (as happened in traidtional China, North America first nations, Hawaii / Polynesia, parts of Africa for sure, hell look at ancient Greece, Rome..and we get our whole culture from there.) – that kid won’t grow up to hate others who aren’t just like theirself. And if THAT kid is gay, feels theyre a boy in their core being, when
            their body is female… well, that kid doesnt grow up to hate themselves, live in shame, kill themselves, develop addictions that kills themselves and others. Its the shame that tears families apart. It’s not the consistently naturally appearing, across time and geography, variation in forms of gender, sexuality, this and that. It’s the absence of love, and the hate and violence that takes its place. It’s easy to use a hateful version of a higher power as a god. It feels good at first to be right, to be angry, that rush of superiority… or condescending pity. But it feels so much better to actually unconditionally support someone else by actually hearing their story. And loving them along the way. And seeing love being passed on. We’re here to help each other. Even the bigoted of us. The MOST bigoted. We don’t hand Hitler the keys to the castle. He goes on janitor duty. But had someone been there for HIM, to love him when his only parent was dying, maybe he wouldn’t have gotten hooked on the power of hate.

            Maybe my grandparents’ entire families wouldn’t have gone up in smokestacks, with gays, Roma people, Catholics who wrote letters against concentration camps, authors. Hate put love into gas chambers. And when I hate or say hateful things to or about a fundamentalist, I’m letting a bit of that smoke in, and sending it their way. And it can grow and grow. But… my version of god is partly a traditional judeo … and some christian one (its a nice version that jewish fellow seemed to promote;) —I may not like what you’re doing to me or my fellows and I wish you would stop trying to hurt and kill us. But, I am “commanded” to love you. Commanded to me: the natural law is that boundaries are needed to defend ourselves from hateful attacks, but love is always what someone’s missing. And the hardest work is to see the potential hitler in my heart, that comes up when I feel hurt or someone has crossed a line and threatened innocent people etc. To see that potential snake, and say, there there. Something bigger has got all our backs. Do I have faith in a reality, a greater power and strength, that is big enough for love to exist everywhere, NO MATTER FOR WHOM OR WHERE OR WHAT? Do I really have faith that everyone is made of the same stuff, and I can learn from, that they are worth respect? Or in classy some terms, “god doesn’t make shit”? From a more explicitly eastern perspective, its all already there. It’s perfect as it is.

            The people we fear are perfect as they are. I simply, like a child, wish they knew it was true for themselves… and for others too. It just takes a brand of culture, of love that if it only was in the air, instead of fear and anger, that could literally make for healthy minds, spirits, bodies, all that. We’d naturally make room for people who are outside the stat. norm and find ways of making them feel one with everyone else. Hell, we wouldn’t even have to do that: they’d already be there.

          • Alea Angelique

            I totally understand where you are coming from, but why not share your perspective in a positive way? Share your beliefs and how you feel about equality and acceptance!! The way I see it you are just feeding it. Educate! Be positive! also bashing internet trolls is a useless venture. But if you’re gonna put that energy out there share the beauty you have in you! Why not?!? Congratulations on your long partnership, it sounds like you love her a lot.

            and a wise old sage once said… don’t sweat the petty stuff pet the sweaty stuff.

          • marfmellow

            how dare you tell someone how to respond to transantagonism?

          • Alea Angelique

            honey it’s just me sharing my outlook and open-mindedness on the topic. Take it or leave it, I try to stay positive. I don’t usually get involved in things like this because I get the sense they go nowhere… But I couldn’t help it, seeing so much hate and negativity thrown around in both directions. It’s not our responsibility to educate… no, we can do whatever we want. We can scream fuck you!! you idiot, racist, piece of shit!!! We can start a war… we can bring race, religion, and any other off topic thing into it, we can even bring politics in…. But does that help change the way a lot of people deal with this topic in particular because they are ignorant or scared or don’t understand??

            My point is, all that does (from my perspective) is create more hate. and soon, people don’t even realize which thing they’re fighting over anymore. All it does is give people more of a reason or an excuse to be more stupid and violent and mean-spirited and close-minded.

            It’s not up to us? Sure it is. It’s up to us to react gracefully or awfully. I understand the angst, don’t think for a minute that I don’t agree with the anger towards “bigots” or racism or “trans-antagonism”. I whole heartedly oppose that way of thinking.

            I’m just suggesting a different way to direct those feelings that would maybe give insight and perspective rather than throwing fuel on the fire. I’m encouraging her to speak her mind about equality and acceptance.

            With a lot of people it might not do a damn thing. But maybe… just maybe, it would open some eyes and challenge them to see things in a different light.

            I’m not here to tell people what to do, I’ve tried to make it very clear that I’m just sharing my viewpoint. I’m here to share my perspective that we are all beautiful, and we can share it, we can spread it. It’s infectious. and much better than spreading the hate epidemic.

            Jay, YOU’RE cool. I’m a WOMAN who believesgenetics and GOD. I also believe in grammar and usage. If someone is going to call anyone out on grammar, I’d hope that they’d at least have sense enough to use the right words. Apparently she is marriedto more than one transgender woman since she keeps saying WOMEN. Again Jay, YOU’RE cool.

          • Amanda

            maybe you two should get married and have some babies and start a good Christian family. I would imagine though buying all them pointy hoods and robes might get a little expensive. Sorry you feel the need to attack others for their sexuality, is your pussy all dried up along with your shriveled black soul? That must suck, oh well, you got your bible at least!

          like I said your god has nothing to do with mine or my wife’s life in any way shape or form, so say what you will, it will not change the fact that I am happy and content with the person I am and the person I love and at the end of the day, your still a piece of shit..lol and go ahead and type how you want, you sound like an idiot…4.0 BAHAHAHAHA!

          • Amanda

            oh and by the way.. “go fuck myself?” Profanity: the last resort of someone who knows they lost an argument.

    No, Jay, you’re the one who is confused since you feel that people are only confined to one sexuality. Love and attraction is something that happens regardless of sex, gender, or sexuality. It’s perfectly fine for you to be attracted to only the opposite sex, but that doesn’t mean other people are. I know many people who consider themselves straight but still feel attracted to someone despite what sexual organs they were born with. It’s actually more natural to love and be attracted to someone as a human vs. loving and being attracted to thing as a male or female. Example: While every species in the world reproduces based on sexual organs, humans are only species in the world that define love and attraction based on those sexual organs. Other animal species, when having sex for pleasure, disregard heterosexual norms. The problem is that people think there’s only heterosexual vs. homosexual, when there are so many other possibilities out there. Someone being transgender does not define in the slightest whether they’re attractive or not. It is because you know and believe you shouldn’t be attracted to this woman that you’re not. If you didn’t know she was born male, you would probably still find her attractive. If sexual organs don’t dictate sexuality, as I previously showed, then who cares what genitals she was born with?

The fact that you cant resist commenting over and over and trolling this post with hate shows even more that you yourself cant come to terms with your curiosity of being with another man!! ….Either get out of your closet or use your closet hanger to hang it up already!!….Gay, str8, bi or transgender your NOT going to change the world so let people be who or whatever they want to and direct your energy on yourself and change your ugly hateful ways….

      what you said was most eloquent and made TONS of sense! only those who have nothing but hate in their hearts are the ones who feel the need to comment and that’s what’s truly sad.

      They are using their bodies to express sexuality without being engaged in sex, and from my perspective because of who they are and what they define themselves as the photographs are therefore helping to break down the social constructs of how we perceive gender, beauty and sexuality.

      Or, it’s pretty to look at. ;)

    AND THIS GOES TO EVERYONE.

    I say we are all individual and unique people (yes, creatures, in a non-pejorative sense) and we all identify ourselves as, and with, unlimited things. What sex we are born as isn’t the only thing that defines us, and we as human beings are mutable. We have the ability and technology to change ourselves, inside and out.

    That creature, my dears, wants to be and is a WOMAN.

    It’s no one elses place to decide weather or not that is right for her, and from where I sit it is more than RIGHT!!!!!

    as in…

    THEY ARE BEEEAAAAUUUUUTTTTTIIIIIFFFFFUUUUULLLLL!!!

    We all are, but those individuals are f-i-n-e specimens, and I am grateful for their sharing.

    So many people on the internet jump the gun, judge, react hatefully, and flip the fuck out because well, maybe they have nothing better to do, or maybe the world really is that sad… but I have more faith than that. I don’t usually post to threads at all, but scrolling down the commentary reacting to these photos and seeing all the ugly that people were throwing around at each other, often missing what the other was even trying to convey was sad. It’s also sad to me that the person trying to defend gender bending the most (a woman married to a trans m2f) was being just as hateful in her reaction as the person who was judging, and in my opinion he wasn’t even bashing, just sharing his own narrow viewpoint.

    We need to lift each other up, so they can open their minds to other perspectives. Not all of us are naturally so open minded, and a lot of closed minded behavior spawns from not knowing, not understanding why, or from fear. We can change the way we project our outlooks, to be more compassionate and educating, and we can do it with grace. Then maybe people will have a better opportunity to really SEE, and UNDERSTAND. If we show them and teach them instead of reacting hatefully and defensively. Notice how below Madelines comment only elicited positive responses from people.

    Even if someone comes to you with hate you don’t have to react that way, then you are only letting them eat you. It’s a hard practice. But its worth practicing.

    Because beauty is really inside us and we can share it.
    Not to sound like too much of a hippy or whatever.

      well said!

        Thank you! I feel good about sharing. Like I was saying I don’t usually post to threads or comment on things like this. It seems like most of the time reacting to such negativity is a waste of energy, especially if you’re just going to call people stupid or klansmen or you know… Fight fire with fire… I try not to think that way.
