    Miss Universe Canada disqualifies Vancouver-based transsexual contestant
    By Mike Raptis, The Province March 24, 2012 Comment 83 •Story•Photos ( 6 )
    Jenna TalackovaPhotograph by: Submitted , ModelMayhem.comShe’s blond, 6-foot-1, and has the body of a goddess.

    Vancouver’s Jenna Talackova was everything Miss Universe Canada was looking for when she was selected among 65 finalists for the 2012 competition, to be held in Toronto in May.

    But the Donald Trump–owned beauty pageant confirmed Friday that the 23-year-old has been disqualified from the competition.

    The reason, Talackova claims, is she was born male.

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

    “We do, however, respect her goals, determination and wish her the best,” it concludes, without specifying what requirements she did not meet.

    Talackova set the blogosphere abuzz earlier this week after it was discovered she had sexual reassignment surgery in 2010.

    Her profile and photos from the pageant’s website were subsequently pulled.

    The statuesque blond told The Province Friday she needs to speak to her lawyer before taking part in interviews.

    But Talackova has made statements online over Twitter about being “disqualified for being born.”

    By March 18, she had apparently already been told by Miss Universe Canada her place in the competition was in jeopardy.

    “Still waiting to know if I’m able to compete ... praying and fingers crossed,” she Tweeted that day.

    Two days later, she got the news.

    “I’m disqualified, however I’m not giving up,” she wrote, defiantly. “I’m not going to just let them disqualify me over discrimination.”

    Responses to her plight posted online have been mixed.

    Some have welcomed her inclusion in the competition, while others believe such pageants are for women born as women.

    Miss Universe Canada contestants must meet a basic requirement of being a Canadian citizen and between the ages of 18 and 27 to compete.

    They also must not be married, pregnant, and have to fill out a more comprehensive form if they meet the basic requirements.

    There is no mention of rules regarding sex-changes or cosmetic surgery.

    Talackova has been rather open about her transsexual past online.

    During an interview for a transsexual beauty pageant in Thailand — Miss International Queen 2010 — the Canadian representative refers to herself as “a woman, with a history.”

    That history includes recognizing herself as a female since the age of four and beginning hormone therapy when she was 14.

    i think she should have claimed she was of east german ancestery
    then she would not have been disqualified.

    I met her in a club down in North Soho
    Where you drink champagne and it tastes just like cherry cola
    See-O-L-A cola.

    She walked up to me and she asked me to dance.
    I asked her name and in a dark brown voice she said, "Lola"
    L-O-L-A Lola, lo lo lo lo Lola

    Well, I'm not the world's most physical guy,
    But when she squeezed me tight she nearly broke my spine
    Oh my Lola, lo lo lo lo Lola

    Well, I'm not dumb but I can't understand
    Why she walk like a woman and talk like a man
    Oh my Lola, lo lo lo lo Lola, lo lo lo lo Lola

    Well, we drank champagne and danced all night,
    Under electric candlelight,
    She picked me up and sat me on her knee,
    And said, "Little boy won't you come home with me?"

    Well, I'm not the world's most passionate guy,
    But when I looked in her eyes,
    Well I almost fell for my Lola,
    Lo lo lo lo Lola, lo lo lo lo Lola

    Lola lo lo lo lo Lola lo lo lo lo Lola

    I pushed her away. I walked to the door.
    I fell to the floor. I got down on my knees.
    I looked at her, and she at me.

    Well that's the way that I want it to stay.
    And I always want it to be that way for my Lola.
    Lo lo lo lo Lola.

    Girls will be boys, and boys will be girls.
    It's a mixed up, muddled up, shook up world,
    Except for Lola. Lo lo lo lo Lola.

    Well I left home just a week before,
    And I've never ever kissed a woman before,
    But Lola smiled and took me by the hand,
    And said, "Little boy, gonna make you a man."

    Well I'm not the world's most masculine man,
    But I know what I am and I'm glad I'm a man,
    And so is Lola.
    Lo lo lo lo Lola. Lo lo lo lo Lola.

    Who cares!

    Unless you're planning on sharing a bed (like you're going to with ANY of the contestants!): Does it really make any difference in your life?

    Life is challenging enough! I can't imagine the anguish some must go through bearing the added burden of feeling completely trapped inside!

    This kind of thing though maybe strange to you and me makes not one whit of difference to my life. I hope everyone finds their own happiness as long as it's not harming others. I'm just mighty glad challenges like that are not something I had to deal with in my life!

    If BCSB had a similar rule against half-homos, this place would be a lot quieter.

    A man (who later became a woman as in this case) would have some physical features that women naturally don't have, such as bone structure, height, hip-to-waist ratio, higher metabolism rate (weight). Those manly features would put the rest of the women (in such competitions) at a disadvantage, no?

    I'm just here for the intelligent conversation.
    I'm a lot more open minded these days, so I can't imagine the way that person feels. It can't feel great being trapped in your own body, feeling like it doesn't represent you and your sexuality.

    That said, the world cannot cater to everyone in it. It's a female competition, and he isn't female. It sucks, but there are transgendered competitions for him to compete in. Same goes for athletes. It can give them an unfair advantage (or in my opinion, disadvantage in this case).

    All that said... it's a friggin miss universe competition. Probably the most meaningless thing a person can be a part of.

    Much hotter than Michelle Dumaresq. The vancouver mountain biker who was born a man, but is now competing with women after transgender surgery ... But he's ALLOWED to compete. I think Jenna should too!
