Should transgender people be allowed in beauty pageants?

  • If there is no rule that says a contestant has to be female, then...

    Yes, I think if there is no rule against transgender people being included into a beauty pageant then why would they be excluded. If a man physically, through surgery makes himself in to a women, then she should have a chance to compete in the contest. Fair is fair, but then this brings up another issue should she, the transgender that used to be a man, be allowed in the dressing room with women. There are so many issues that can arise with this situation.

  • Transgender people should be allowed in beauty pageants.

    Transgender people should be allowed in beauty pageants. I thought that beauty pageants were open to anyone that wanted to be in them. I think that anyone that wants to participate in a beauty pageant should be allowed to. There is nothing wrong with transgender people wanting to take part in something.

  • Yes they should.

    Transgender people should be allowed in beauty pageants. They have made the choice to change their gender, and they should not be discriminated against for that choice. America is the land of opportunity, and they should be allowed to participate in anything that their new gender is able to do.

  • Transgender People Should Be Allowed in Beauty Pageants

    Yes, transgender people should be allowed in beauty pageants as such pageants are not about sex or gender, they are about beauty. If a transgender person can appear as beautiful as the other contestants, there is no reason to deny that person entry. So yes, allow transgender people to participate!

  • Yes, they should

    Transgender people are people ... Human like everyone else. If someone was born a male and expresses and identifies as female, then so be it. I'm not sure why people make such a big fuss. Probably because they don't know about transgender people and were probably raised by bigots. To not allow a transwoman to enter in a beauty contest is outright discrimination and a hurtful thing to do.

  • Absolutely yes of course

    If it is all about beauty than if course, transg should by all means be included. We ALL realize that women ready themselves years ahead for these pageants with fake breasts, face and nose work, hair extensions, liposuction and so on and do on. So tell me what's the difference, they both have been altered to enhance their physical appearances. So absolutely get everyone on stage fake or not and have at it.

  • Transwomen fully transitioned should be allowed to participate in mainstream beauty pagents

    Transgender women who have completed their transition should be allowed to participate in mainstream beauty pagents such as Miss USA/ Miss Universe and other well known pagents. By alloweing her to particpate in these pagents it will allow all women who qualify for these pagents to feel beautiful and be part of the glamour that pagents offer and the opportunities that come their way. Since the US Supreme Court has pa ed the way for LGBT rights, these rights should apply to all areas of social life. By allowing trans-women to particpate in beautify pagents, many sterotypes and myths about transgender people would be dispelled espcailly in pagents that have a social platform or service program.

  • That should be up to the beauty pageant in question

    Maybe someone wants to have a cisgender male or cisgender female beauty pageant just like someone wants to have a male beauty pageant or a female beauty pageant or a black beauty pageant.

    There are also transgender specific beauty pageants (and body building competitions too).

    If you don't like the idea of transgender people being in a beauty pageant don't watch a beauty pageant that includes transgender people.

  • Transgender People are humans.

    Whether or not they have had a surgery, or what their gender or medical history is, they are people of the gender they identify with, and have all the right to participate as transgender men or women in the respective beauty pageants, without any discrimination of any kind. This is 2015.

  • But they should have their own catagory to be fair to the other women

    Transgender females who were born male have a greater advantage over born females IMO. They often have lower BMIs, longer legs, more defined facial structure , like high cheek bones, are taller, and don't have as much cellulite, and annoying fat in the wrong places. They also age slower. I'm all for trans women being allowed to compete in beauty shows... I just wouldn't want go up against them! ;)

  • No, they should not be allowed in regular beauty pageants.

    Transgender people should be allowed to take part in beauty pageants if the pageants are made for them; for example, a male to female beauty pageant specifically designed for them to take part in. However, letting them in to regular beauty pageants, such as Miss America, would be unfair to the other contestants who were born female.

  • I believe NO

    Transgender people should be allowed in pageants that are made for transgenders. It would be unfair for a woman born a woman to be beat in a contest by someone who was born a male. I say that for two reasons: 1) Some get plastic surgery, so their new face would be designed to be as appealing to the opposite sex as possible. Most girls don't get feature-enhancing surgeries, so they will be competing with a face and/or body that was not the transgenders to begin with. Doesn't seem fair to me. It isn't fair that natural faces (with flaws and imperfections) should compete with faces that are designed and fake.2.) I am an old fashioned kind of girl. I believe that if God made you a man, you are a man. You aren't meant to be a woman that enters beauty contests in general. You can do that while being a man :)

  • No, they should not be allowed in beauty pageants.

    Of course, Transgender people are people. They should have the right to be in the beauty pageants which are only prepare for the transgender people. In male or female's beauty pageants, transgender people should not be allowed because I do not think that people who dislike there original gender and did the transgender surgery are consider as beauty. Otherwise, people who done the Plastic Surgery should also be allowed to the pageants

  • Pageants shouldn't be bought

    Should a male enter into a woman's beauty competition, he's bought himself the surgeries and implants and reconstruction to be something he is not, and that is to appear as a beautiful woman. Saying this, I would also be against women who have cosmetic surgery to gain an advantage to compete; if you aren't entering the competition based on your natural (original) physicality, then you're being judged on the size of your wallet and what you can afford.

  • They should have their own pageant.

    Considering all the biological differences of a male and a female, permitting transgender to compete to all-female and all-male competitions is not a way of promoting gender equality but tolerating a rather palpable judgement. Thus, transgender should have their own pageant just to be fair and all for both men and women.

  • Male Female Transgender

    I do not believe transgender people should be allowed in beauty pageants. Beauty pageant, when designated for a sex should only accept that sex in. Transgerder people are both, they are not solely female, nor solely male; therefore they should have their own, separate pageants. Unless of course you have a pageant for mixed gender in which everyone is allowed.
