OH CANADA! – Transexual Contestant Kicked Out Of Miss Universe Canada Beauty Pageant

Last week we wrote about the stunning and beautiful Jenna Talackova. 

 Jenna who was born a male and underwent hormone therapy at age 14 went on to have sexual reassignment surgery in 2010 and had become the first transexual contestant to make it to the finals as a contestant in the 2012 Miss Universe Canada.

Well thats all changed now according to CTV News:

Miss Universe Canada issued a statement Friday saying Talackova “did not meet the requirements to compete despite having stated otherwise on her entry form.”

“We do, however, respect her goals, determination and wish her the best,” it said.

Miss Universe Canada didn’t go into specifics about exactly what “requirements” Ms. Talackova failed to meet.  But I think we can probably figure that out.

Miss Universe Canada beauty pageant is owned by Donald Trump.  Are we surprised?
