This is just bizarre. According to many sources, a transgender ‘woman’ is poised to win the Miss Universe pageant in Bangkok, Thailand, appropriately enough.
From the Daily Mail:
A Spanish transsexual beauty queen has said that winning this year’s Miss Universe would be a victory ‘for human rights’ as some bookmakers today made her the favourite.
Angela Ponce, 27, from Seville, is in Bangkok, Thailand, where she hopes to become the first transgender woman to win the pageant.
Some online bookmakers have made her the odds-on front-runner for the contest on December 17, according to The Blast.
It comes days after Ponce said that taking the crown would be a ‘win for human rights’.
In an Interview with Time, she was asked what it would mean to win, knowing that Donald Trump, the former owner of Miss Universe, did not allowed transgender contestants until 2012.
‘More than a message to him, it would be a win for human rights,’ she said.
‘Trans women have been persecuted and erased for so long. If they give me the crown, it would show trans women are just as much women as cis women.’
Uhm, this is just stupid. I mean look at “her”:
Yeah that is bizarre.
What a stupid time to be alive. You can bet their ratings will continue to tank if this goes through… but the liberal critics will howl like idiots if it doesn’t.
