In a win for the women of Italy, the Miss Italy competition has reportedly banned “transgender women” from competing.
Just a few years ago, it would have been widely accepted that dudes in dresses shouldn’t get to steal awards from women in female-only competitions. Now people expressing that truth are treated as if they brutally assaulted or murdered transgenders. So much for feminism and female empowerment. Except in Italy…
MRCTV’s Haika Mrema reported July 24 that Official Patron Patrizia Mirigliani clarified transgenders would not be allowed in the Miss Italy competition. A contestant has to be “a woman from birth.” Mirigliani told a local outlet, per MRCTV, “Lately, beauty contests have been trying to make the news by also using strategies that I think are a bit absurd.”
