UPDATE: As of 4/8/2012 Ms. Talackova WILL be allowed to compete in the Miss Universe contest this year. Donald Trump the owner of the international contest, has said that transgendered individuals will be allowed to compete from now on. But we would still love to know your thoughts! Please comment!
Jenna Talackova, a 23 year-old beauty queen, has been disqualified from the Miss Universe Canada competition after it emerged that she was not in fact born as a female. In a move that’s been reacted to angrily by human rights protestors, the rules of the competition deem that entrants must be “naturally born,” and thus according to them, Talackova has broken that ruling. What do you think? Should she be allowed to participate? Or is it a legal matter and not one of gender at all?
