Re: “How beauty pageants view transwomen

I think what is pernicious here is the conflation of those who suffer from a relatively well understood and treatable medical condition with a poorly defined socio-political terminology.

Jenna, and others who have successfully addressed their medical issues by availing themselves of known and proven protocols are not 'transwomen'. Jenna is simply a young woman and a beautiful one at that.

Equating or comparing her to trans-women, transgenders, or any or all of those included in this politically contrived catch-all term is demeaning and deligitimizing as well as de-gendering. How politically perjorative, ignorant and oppressively un-PC of you.
