Barbara Walters Interviews Transgender Miss Canada Universe Beauty Contestant Jenna Talackova – Video

Barbara Walters sat down with Jenna Talackova, the Canadian transgender Miss Universe contestant last night on 20/20 who was rejected and later reinstated after an outcry from the LGBT Community and the possibility that Miss Universe Canada had broken Canadian law.

Said Talackova: “I feel like the universe, the creator put me in this position as an advocate. If it’s helping anyone else, and my story, then I feel great about it.”

Walters also interviewed attorney Gloria Allred, and Donald Trump about their public fued this week over Talackova with Allred threatening to sue the pageant if Jenna did not compete and in which later Trump appeared on TMZ and boasted about the fact that not only is he a big dick, but that he also has one.

In his part of the interview with Walters, Trump proves his insanity by coming up with theory that Talackova has an “ulterior motive” because the first letters of her name spell “JENNATAL”.

Gloria Allred responded: “With all due respect to Mr. Trump, he really needs to stop being focused on genitals. His, or anyone else’s. This world does not revolve around his penis or anyone else’s genitalia. Whether a person is a woman is not simply defined by her genitalia.”

  1. You know, if we all let people define themselves and accepted them for who they are, the world would be a heckuva lot nicer place.

    I say: Power to Jenna! She understood who she is, had the integrity to take the necessary measures to realise her identity physically, AND she has the courage to stand up for yourself.

    And just by-the-way, she is one good-looking woman.
