One of the world’s premiere beauty pageants has fallen for the transgender craze and will be allowing a biological male to compete with the country’s most beautiful women for the crown of Miss America.
A transgender woman – or anatomically speaking, a dude – just beat out 21 real women for the title of Miss Nevada giving 27 year-old Kataluna Enriquez the chance to be crowned Miss USA in the larger beauty competition. Our hearts go out to all the women who have so far been deemed less beautiful than a literal man.
And we thought models had to deal with intense pressure, before they had to compete with men.
But back to Kataluna’s rise as a man to the heights of feminine beauty achievement. (What a world.) His campaign for the Miss Nevada crown was remarkable and even local Fox affiliate KVVU-TV described it as “redefining what it means to be a woman and what it means to be beautiful.” Well when the literal opposite gender wins a female pageant, yeah, we guess you could call that a redefinition.
During the pageant, Enriquez leaned into his unorthodox gender identity and added some LGBTQ activism to the festivities. The Blaze reported that he wore a “homemade rainbow-colored gown to celebrate Pride Month” in order to “honor all of those who don’t get a chance to spread their colors,” he said.
In an interview with the Fox affiliate, Enriquez added, “I’ve learned to love myself, learned the beauty that’s inside me, learned to use my voice and the power that I have.” He also stated, “You are capable of anything as long as you believe in yourself.” Well he really is a testament to that. He IS a woman because he says so, and now even the world’s premiere line of beauty pageants are indulging it.
