Miss Universe Boots Transsexual! They Need To Change Their Rules!

Beauty pageants condone all sorts of surgeries.

In fact, sometimes they'll even pay for them.

Remember when Miss USA footed the bill for Miss California's breast implants?

But the Miss Universe pageant is strict about their contestants not having had sexual reassignment surgery, like Miss Universe Canada, Jenna Talackova, did.

They ickily specify that the contestants must be "naturally born female," and though Jenna said she was on her registration form, she was actually born male.

(She says she knew at age four that she was female.)

The whole battle is dumb and boring because whatever the technicalities, the fact is that a transsexual is a woman, case closed.

Jenna is a woman and should be competing with other women.

That the pageant is still stuck in old prejudices like this one makes them even more obsolete than they already are.

What a great looking GAL.  She was correct to say she was born female.  She didn't say she was born in a female body!  Or maybe she did.  As you say, Mikey.  This type of reality show is obsolete anyway.

She's gorgeous and surely could have beat the competition.

By the way, Donald Trump is the man responsible for this pageant and the stupid rule.

"She would have lost to the african competition"

Are you mad?

In the top 15 countries for Miss Universe scoring, there isn't a single African country listed. 

Canada, however, ranks in the top 10.

I'm sure she was the hottest one there and that's why they had to give her the boot.  I mean, it is Canada for christ's sake...

Jenna looks like a prettier, (much) younger Heather Locklear.

When you consider what transgendered people have to go through to become themselves,one can only admire their courage.

This article is hysterical...Her face still looks as hard as a rock to me-MAN written all over it. Self denial and being sympathetic to her plight is what a few tend to lean on. A natural born man is a man no matter how 'man' tries and aims to redefine it. The removal of two testicles doesn't get rid of the testosterone fueled voicebox-Check again!

Oh, really?  Maybe you got fooled picking up a trans hooker?  Maybe your husband prefers shemales?

This decision HAS to be reversed. it's so wrong. Are all the LGBT groups on top of this?
