'Miss Transgender UK' Stripped... for not Being 'Transgender Enough'?!
File this one entirely under, "I told you so." This week, Miss Transgender UK (yes that's a thing) was stripped of her title, or I guess officially his former title, for not being transgender enough. Yes really. This is a true story, that actually happened, on planet Earth.
This comes to us from The Telegraph
Jai Dara Latto, 22, was named Miss Transgender UK in a glittering ceremony in London in last September.
But six months on she has had her title removed after organiser Rachael Bailey claimed she was shown footage of the model in boxer shorts.
The pageant runner branded Jai a 'drag queen' and accused her of not living full-time as a woman.
She is set to give her crown to another beauty queen, Daisy Bell.
The footage which made her change her mind showed Jai wearing a pair of boxer shorts.
It also reportedly shows Jai working out at the gym in a T-shirt and shorts.
This really should be hilarious. Well, allow me to clarify. It is hilarious. Certainly upon first reading. Upon further review however, you will notice a faint crackling sound. Almost like a distant paper shredder. Hear that? That is the sound of your soul being torn in half. The initial hilarity gives way to soul-crushing despair, followed by anger once you realize that this isn't coming from The Onion.
The fact that we are this far along the trail is laughably absurd, yes. But it's also a barometer as to where we are as a culture. Listen, the reason this little wrinkle's occurred is the exact same reason that, as we reported earlier this week, men have begun flagrantly using women's rooms, simply citing new municipal "Gender Rules" (read more on that situation here)
Oh wait, you want to know the reason? It's simple. You cannot choose nor change your sex/gender. Biologically, scientifically, it is impossible. Period. Unlike
global warming climate change, it is entirely observable, testable science. Nobody in the history of the word has successfully changed their sex/gender from male to female or vice versa. Sure, they may receive some cosmetic surgeries that make them look like the opposite sex. They may even take some hormones that make them feel like the opposite sex. But they scientifically, can never become a functioning member of the opposite sex.
So then what are we doing as a society anyway? We're denying science and all available medical literature to try and accommodate a very small percentage of population Earth's feelings. We're also hurting these people more than helping. As seen not only by this story, but the available data regarding suicides in the transgender community, and mental disorders.
