Another beauty pageant spotlight moment goes well for transgender people

THE GUERRILLA ANGEL REPORT — While the winner of the Miss USA crown for the Miss Universe pageant was not a trans person, her smooth, matter-of-fact, embracing of trans contestants answer in the final question round helped Olivia Culpo, Miss Rhode Island, cinch the crown.

The question: would it be fair for a person born a man to be named Miss Universe after becoming a woman?

Culpo: “I do think that would be fair. . . .  [because] “there are so many people who have a need to change for a happier life. I do accept that because I believe it’s a free country.””

Another positive transgender moment in the national spotlight and we’ll take it!

  1. Its so sad people still think that a person (born) with a dick or XY-Chromosome would automatically be (born as) a man. That´s what I call biologism or better genitalistic sexism

  2. I hate the expression “born a man”… there’s no such thing.
