TRANSMAN WHO WANTS TO BE A MISS: Alex Moreno, a 19-year-old model who was born female and is now hormonally transitioning to becoming a man, is competing in Miss Grand Lara which is a preliminary to Miss Grand Venezuela 2023. He makes history by becoming the first transman to compete in a Miss pageant, causing strong reactions among pageant fans.
How is this even possible? Well, in a woke and politically correct world obsessed with inclusion and equity, anything is possible. If married women can now compete in Miss Universe and still be considered as “Miss,” then it is also possible for a transman to be a “Miss” - that is, of course - if the judges crown Moreno as the winner. But are the judges and pageant organizers even aware that trans contestants are not yet allowed to compete in Miss Grand International?
But the biggest question is this: if Moreno is a transman, they why is he not competing in a pageant for men? To me, this suggests that Moreno is confused of his identity and he lacks coherence. I also think that he’s doing this for attention, to promote transsexualism, and to gain more followers. And to anyone who applauds the pageant organizers for promoting inclusion, then what are its limits? Will they be accepting non-binary and genderqueer contestants who refuse to be identified as “Miss”? Shouldn’t the requirements for a local pageant match those of the international pageant and not the other way around?
It’s a sad world we live in where we can’t tell the difference anymore between a male/female, woman/transwoman, man/transman, man/transwoman and woman/transman.
All in the name of inclusion.
