Move over, Rachel Dolezal; there’s someone else out there with even more issues. German “model” Martina Adam, also known as Martina Big (because of her insanely huge breast implants and appearances on Botched), has completed her transition into a “black” woman.


Dudes, it’s Friday. Why not end the week with a bang?

Here’s a photo of Adam as a white woman in 2016:

And here’s Adam as her new self, something she’s referred to as a “black” woman:

Adam has been making media rounds in Romania talking about her transition, and it’s absolutely harrowing.

Adam has also spoken out about her experiences as a “black” woman and has complained about people not believing that her passport is valid.


“I’m a black girl with black hair, so I have to change very soon my passport,” Adam says in the video below.


Just so you know, I’m currently sitting at my computer contemplating life. Not mine, but hers. What went wrong? When did it go wrong? Why didn’t anyone intervene? Who is the doctor doing all of this mess? These are just a few of the questions circulating around in my head.

And before the question pops up for the millionth time as to why it’s OK to be transgender and not “transracial,” I’ll let transgender activist and writer Kat Blaque explain:

I can’t help wondering what Dolezal would say about this. But I think she’d probably give her “black sista” a high-five.

Bye, Kinja! It's been fun (occasionally).
