International outrage is growing over the disqualification of transsexual model Jenna Talackova from the finals of Miss Universe Canada.
With blond locks, long legs and delicate features, Talackova was a strong competitor in pageant but was disqualified, she says, because she used to be male, even though she made it to the finals of the contest.
The story has now flared through the British, U.S. and Canadian media in recent days, sparking online protests.
This is discriminatory, unjust, and quite frankly disgusting, said Oscar Dimant of Brooklyn, New York, listed as the author of the online petition at change.org.
She is a woman and deserves to be treated as any other woman would be.
The 23-year-old transgender model from Vancouver has accused the pageant of discrimination, and more than 30,000 supporters have now signed an online petition demanding her reinstatement.
One petition signator argued that Talackova is legally and physically a woman.

That is the crux of the issue here, isn’t it?
It he has XY chromosomes, from my perspective what we have is doctors indulging profound mental illness with lots of plastic surgery.
Nnnooooooooooooooooooooooo!!!!! is right!
At the risk of setting you up as the expert on all of this, how does it work “female-to-male?” Can Chaz Bono get it up? Does that require a pump? Inquiring minds probably don’t want to know.
Science can't change that.
That is too much information!!!!
Actually, it would be more accurate to say “Science determines that, and hackery can’t change it.”
It did NOT “used to be a male.” It IS a male. A genetic test will prove that. No matter how much a boy mutilates himself or is mutilated by doctors, he is still a male human being.
That's only because the legal system, like his body has been mutilated and twisted into some grotesque mutation of what it was intended to be.
I don't think “Chaz” has had that surgery,though.
There is a very real though rare condition in which chimeric forces cause the confusion of hormonal development. Such folks are to be pitied, not pummeled.
I’m very cornfused over that thing you call” chimeric forces”.
It may be what effects my Cousin in Tennessee. He never did seem right but he did at least become Vice President in B.J. Clintons Presidency. We always had hope some great doctor would cure him. We all pitied him.
They check the chromosomes of Olympic athletes. What makes this guy any different?
