I was never really into watching the Ms. Universe pageant and the recent change in their rules allowing he-females (I refuse to use the nonsense term, transgender, there ain’t no such animal) into the competition just sealed any chance of me ever watching this again! Consider their reason for doing so as reported in the Manila Bulletin 4/12/12, “We have a long history of supporting equality for all women, and this was something we took very seriously,” said Paula Shugart, president of the Miss Universe Organization.
If this isn’t the most stupid thing anyone has ever said I don’t know what is. How is allowing a male who thinks or sees himself as a woman have anything to do with “equality for all women”? I have news for you Ms. Shugart, Ms. Canada is a he, therefor, the equality for all women rule does not apply or are you people really just plain idiots. Sheesh, just because someone thinks or sees that he is a woman and dresses and acts like one doesn’t mean he is one!
Real women wake up, this is an assault on your femininity. I hope everyone who thinks that this decision is insane boycotts this franchise and YES, including the Bb. Pilipinas pageant whose organizers have been contaminated by this obtuse thinking as well!
At least someone at the Ms. Earth pageant still has some sanity left in disallowing non-females from competing. Women should support the Ms. Earth pageant instead!
