Interesting,apparently she is of the unenlightened opinion that transgender females are not really women and/or she is afraid that transgender women may be more attractive than cis gender women.In any case,these pageants should be eliminated because they exploit all women.They perpetuate a misogynistic and patriarchal culture and society that views women as mere shiny objects and not human beings entitled to dignity and respect equal to men.
