Transsexual Canadian Beauty Queen Asks Trump to Eliminate Miss Universe Rule
Jenna Talackova, the Canadian transsexual beauty queen, is asking that Donald Trump eliminate the rule that Miss Universe contestants must be naturally born females.
"I want Mr. Trump to state that this rule will be eliminated because I do not want any other woman to suffer from the discrimination that I have endured," Talackova said during a press conference Tuesday.
"I have never asked for special consideration. I only wanted to compete," Talackova said.
Talackova was originally disqualified from the 2012 Miss Universe Canada competition because she was not a "naturally born female," according to Gloria Allred, Talackova's attorney. Talackova was born a male but had sexual reassignment surgery at age 19.
"Mr. Trump, admit that you are wrong and get rid of your Trumped-up rule," Allred said during the press conference.
"She [Jenna] did not think for one moment that what she looked like at birth would be relevant. She did not ask Mr. Trump to prove that he is a naturally born man," Allred said.Trade Bucket: Hidden Content

I think I read somewhere that it was already ruled that post-op transgendered could compete.

You are conservative. You just hate to have that label applied to you because you have been brainwashed into thinking you have to be liberal because of your race.
Personally I think that pagents for "Miss" anything should be females. However, if it is OK for a boy dressed like a girl to be in Girl Scouts then there is no reason a man that had a complete sex change shouldn't be able to compete as a woman.

I feel if they will not let her in the pagent then all PLASTIC SURGERY should not be allowed. Plastic surgery is plastic surgery. The Big boobs (PERFECT) are all not natural. They need to make it ALL NATURAL or allow anyone in it.

I like an all natural woman too but ya'll are comparing apples to oranges. A woman can get breast implants but it does not change her gender. A man getting a surgery to become a female is a whole different story. I don't think that any of us would have a major problem being with a girl with fake boobs but I would like to think that none of us would be with someone who said that they were born male.
