Model Martina Big, Set on Being an African Woman, Claims She Has Natural “African Hair”
For Martina Big, 29, “transitioning” to a black woman meant changing her skin tone dramatically. To alter her complexion, she went though extreme tanning and melanin boosting injections.
Martina also has an obsession with her chest. She was a natural 32D, and are now a massive 32S. In addition to her glamour modeling, she wanted to become the Guinness World Record holder for having the largest chest. Unfortunately, that dream has been dashed as Guinness World Records doesn’t have a category for largest implants, only largest natural, which belong to American Annie Hawkins.
“Please understand me. I’m not a white woman, with black skin and African hair. I’m a black woman with heart and soul. Getting more and more the body of a black woman is so a wonderful and liberating feeling for me. I don’t want to offend anyone! But I’m not only outwardly a black woman, I’m also with heart and soul a black woman, I swear that by God!” she wrote on her Facebook to much understandable criticism.
Unsurprisingly, Martina has faced huge amounts of backlash from those who accuse her of performing cultural appropriation and blackface.
“First I just wanted to be tanned. But then I noticed that not only my appearance, but also my feelings and beauty ideals have changed. I find black women so beautiful that I now want to become a black woman. Please do not confuse this with […] ‘black face’. This is exactly the opposite! I do not want to offend black people! For me the transformation is very important. Because I follow my heart,” she explained to critics via Facebook.
Martina changed other physical traits of hers to those that are more traditionally African looking. She has been dying her hair and adding extensions. With not much explanation, she claims her eyes have changed color, and she is also planning to get a nose job and large butt implants.
New hair, don’t care?
On Jan. 14, 2018, Martina posted on her Facebook page about her hair:
“I have great news! This photo was taken wile [sic] I visited my African hair dresser. On the photo you only see my natural hair! I have no extension on this photo! I was at my African hair dresser to change my extension. After taking out my extension I noticed how much my hair structure of my own hair has changed :) I compared my own hair with the hair of the other Africans in the salon. They are identical to my :) That’s the clear proof that I’m a real black woman now.”
Sure it is, Martina.
Of course a Facebook user pointed out that is just damaged hair from the cornrows she had done. Someone else said Martina’s hair is probably dry and brittle from years of bleaching it before she dyed it black.
Wrong. Martina is officially black (at least that’s what she says). She even has “scientific proof,” which she shared with her social media fans: “I talked to my doctor. He said that my future babies will be born black. With a white man, my baby would be a mix of black and white.”
We’re just wondering what kind of “doctor” said this and how good their knowledge of genetics and DNA is…
What do you think? Is Martina offensive and ignorant or should we just let her live her deluded life? Leave your comments below and SHARE this story of a very unusual woman.
