Perhaps you should go back and take a look at who kick-started this? And while you're at it, do a search, c'mon, even on the first page of OT alone. But thanks for dropping in with your two bits worth anyway. :rolleyes:

ON TOPIC..........


I personally like to identify myself as the King of Spain but getting people to call me "your majesty" with the full honour and respect that a royal position commands has been difficult.

We all have our battles.


It's all that bowing and scraping' that's the problem, Ron........ you need to be shouting "Off with their heads!" more often. :P

Yeah to be fair it looks to me like she wasn't the one to start the patronizing argument.
People talk about pressure like it's something negative. Pressure means your actions have meaning, that people care about whether you succeed or fail. Pressure is everything.

She built a GREAT REPUTATION during her tenure as a moderator - that's why.

Truth be told, (s)he(? I don't even know which to use!) looks gorgeous, but despite that he shouldn't have the right to take part; in the end, it's a MISS Vancouver Pageant, and he is not a "Miss"

(there's more, but I'm too tired to think straight and elaborate)

In the end, just no.

For God so loved the world that he gave his one and only Son, that whoever believes in him shall not perish but have eternal life. 17 For God did not send his Son into the world to condemn the world, but to save the world through him.

I'd consider that cheating, and if the rules say it's not allowed, then what can you do, people cant expect to get special treatment and support because of this.

Edit: I also think you should not be allowed any plastic surgery in beauty competitions, nobody.


This! forget the fact that she's a transgender..what's the purpose of a 'beauty' contest if you've got surgery done.

Here is what really happened behind the scenes with today's announcement that she would be allowed back into the contest.

A discussion between Donald Trump and his lawyer.

Lawyer: "The contestant is threatening to sue us."

The Donald: "I don't give a rat's a** that they will sue us. Tell them to F*** themselves. I will not be pushed around by that ****** woman."

Lawyer: "Yes, but they will sue the pant's off us. It will cost a lot of money."

The Donald: "So what, I got lots of money."

Lawyer: "Look, there is another way of looking at this. You know very few people watch beauty contests these days. Why not let her stay in? Then we will have a big audience, big ratings, which means big money."

The Donald: "Hmm, you have a point. The ratings for Miss Universe have been sagging awhile."

Lawyer: "I knew you would see it my way. After all, a buck is a buck."

The Donald sighs, "OK, Let her back in."

You know what , its been said on here a few times and i totally agree. They need to make the competition have rules against plastic surgery all together. Most of the girls on there are so fake already and half made of plastic. Jenna, isnt much different, (s)he just had surgery and altered different parts of the body than the others. I for one, dont like women that are half plastic, so make all of them abide to the same rule. That way there is no descrimination. Not sure how you would enforce that though.

On another note, as admirable it is for her to fight them and allow him/her back into the competition, do you really think they are going to let her win?? Imagine you went to get a job and they descriminated against you, then you sued or made a big stink about it, do you think they would allow you to get on to the job after that, and if they did, do you think that you wouldnt get picked on and have them trying to fire you the whole time you were there ?

Because makeup is expected of everybody, and does not alter your physical form.

On topic......

If Jenna Talackova lied on her entrance forms about being physically born a woman, then the pageant people do have the right to remove her from the contest. It's unfortunate and wrong, but if it's spelled out right there in the paperwork.........




Perhaps the question here should be that in the future, the question on the form should be worded differently to allow post-surgical transgendered people participation in the pageant(s).

seems to me they have that in there on purpose. why else would that question be in the application at all?

I agree with the no surgery aspect, as it no longer is a pageant judging one's beauty, but a pageant judging the best work done by a surgeon.

Mayhaps we need to start our own "Miss Natural Universe" pageant.

Today is the final for Miss Canada. Anyone think she will win? If she does, I bet the losers would not be too happy, at least privately.

You have to have a lot of gumption to do what she is doing, and she has it in spades. That alone has to impress the judges. Wish her well.

Hopefully it's crap like this that brings down these events altogether.

Miss Universe? Miss World? All crap.

I can admire a beautiful woman, but these contests are stupid. The sooner we get rid of them the better.

In case you are wondering, she did NOT win the Miss Canada title. She made the final 12 but not the final 5.

She did win Miss Congeniality.

The winner was Sahir Biniaz.

Having once worked in security, and hearing countless complaints, you'd be surprised how many actual women (as in, born a woman) also possess this amazing talent. :unsure:

I can understand that she(he) may have a gender issue and was born into a gender she did not wanna be...but to enter a contest which is strictly for "FEMALES" is against the rules of the contest.

Do what you need to to feel safe and content. But dont think that all rules will apply accordingly to you as a female when you are NOT~!
