Will Transgender Jenna Talackova Prove She is All Female?

First she was out.
Now she might be back in.

Canada’s Jenna Talackova enlists help of
Gloria Allred, and pageant officials reverse decision. Therefore, Jenna
Talackova may compete in the Miss Universe competition and represent her
country as Miss Canada.

After being selected to be a  representative of
Canada in the Miss Universe competition, Jenna Talackova was elated.
But then, some bad news came: she was removed from competition, for
being transgender.

In a statement dated March 23, Miss Universe officials said their
decision was based on their opinion that Talackova did not “meet the
requirements to compete despite having stated otherwise on her entry

But Talackova did not give up. She called ferocious lawyer for all publicly wronged people, Gloria Allred.

 CNN  reported late Monday night, pageant
officials released a statement saying Talackova can compete provided
“she meets the legal gender recognition requirements of Canada, and the
standards established by other international competitions.”

Jenna  was born male, self-identified as female at age 4,
underwent hormone therapy starting at 14 and received
gender-reassignment surgery at 19.

“I am a woman,” she said Tuesday. “I was devastated and I felt that excluding me for the reason that they gave was unjust.”

Talackova presented her Canadian passport showing her gender as
female. – But did she provide her gender reassignment medical papers?  I have to agree, if she has not completed surgery, she should not compete.

In addition to her client’s statement, Allred noted that her client never asked to see the Donald’s genitals, or asked him to prove he was a naturally born male. Trump, of course, had a reply regarding his penis.

“I think Gloria would be very, very, very impressed with me,” he told TMZ
on Tuesday, moving on to note that based on the laws of Canada and the
United States regarding gender, Talackova may compete if she wants to.
“We go by the law.”

“The Miss Universe Organization made the right decision and has taken an
important first step,” said Herndon Graddick, president of the Gay and
Lesbian Alliance Against Defamation. “Now, GLAAD urges the
Organization to include all women and use this incident to speak out in
support of the transgender community.” GLAAD said Tuesday that it was
working with the Miss Universe organization to review current policies.
