Where the hell are we going, and why am I stuck in this handbasket?

I confess that I am “hetero-normative”, as the LGBT community might say. I prefer a pageant in which the girls were born girls, and were always girls. Something about the trans-whatever contestants doesn’t set well with me.
And at least for now, we are free to express such thoughts. Give it a few years, and what I just wrote could be a hate crime.
In a statement late Monday night, the Miss Universe Organization said Jenna Talackova can compete provided "she meets the legal gender recognition requirements of Canada, and the standards established by other international competitions."
The statement, however, did not elaborate on what the requirements were.
I think some "tucking" was necessary.

If the only requirement is to look like a female, let's open up the contest to super-gorgeous fem robots.

People will loose interest in these pageants if this continues. Straight folks just don’t want to watch.

The Miss Universe Organization made the right decision and has taken an important first step
True. The first step off the ledge, bridge, or any other precipice is always very important.

The “Miss” Universe organization has the right to do as they please and I have the right not to watch. Just one more TV show to scratch off my list.

Ho hum, just one more reason to ignore this pageant.
No doubt this freak will be declared the winner, in the name of PC.
It’s been clear for many years that the results are not decided by anything remotely resembling the parameters stated in the contest name.
Plumbing doesn’t count. If you don’t have two X chromosomes you are not a girl. End of argument. Didn’t we go through this with the East German women’s swim team a few years ago?

Okay. This is the most absurd things I have ever seen. We are truly doomed.
Count me firmly in the camp with our Evangelical Christian brothers and sisters now. The end is coming. I fail to see any other direction in which we are hurtling as a civilization.
