Dawn13 : (16 October 2014 - 08:17 PM) Again Thanks Monica - I have a new FB account and a new e-mail where I can be free.
Dawn13 : (16 October 2014 - 05:41 PM) Thanks - Monica
MonicaPz : (16 October 2014 - 04:03 PM) The safest way to set up two FB accounts is to have two e-mail addresses (one Dawn, the other your male name), two snail mail addresses (Dawn would have a P.O. Box, your male self, street address, etc.  Keep ALL information TOTALLY DIFFERENT between the two FB accounts.
Dawn13 : (16 October 2014 - 07:14 AM) Can anyone direct me to a good set of info on how to set up a second FB account using Dawn as my site name.  Regretfully, I still have to live two lives and do not wish to have FB join the two of them.  Maybe this is impossible.
Dawn13 : (16 October 2014 - 05:59 AM) Please send me mail - plenty of room in my mailbox now!
Dawn13 : (16 October 2014 - 04:44 AM) Now it is my mailbox that is full - Will clear ASAP!

So uh...like, what was the problem?  She didn't lie and say she was a man?

"...all contestants must be naturally born females."

Let us break this down.  In watching various shows (usually medical in nature) on TV, one often hears a woman indicate that she wants to experience "natural childbirth," as opposed to under-going a cesarean.  

A natural birth.  So if a child is delivered via the birth canal...that child was naturally born - as was intended by Mother Nature's great plan.  That is, as opposed to being so by way of a cesarean - a man-made institution.  So, if Ms. Talackova was naturally born (as oppsed to being so by way of a cesarean), and she identifies as a woman, and any identifying documents under her name indicate she is female...   then, is she not a naturally born female?

Okay, that was loaded with sarcasm...but wouldn't it be funnier than hell if her legal representation came up with the same idea??  :lol:  It would be interesting to be a fly on the wall to see the pageant officials scrambling to change the language in the pageant rules.  

Or, maybe they would graciously concede and do the right thing...

Donald Trump's name has been brought up in a few of these articles concerning the changing of the pageant rules to allow [trans]women.  His name was brought up in the HLN clip in Lori's post above (post #9).   I wondered why the news anchor tried to question his guest on what Trump might consider instead of HLN tracking down Trump and asking him.  I was also beginning to wonder why Trump has kept quiet about this (to the best of my knowledge).

Today, while searching for something else, I accidentally ran across this line in a huffingtonpost.com article, "...Takei -- who recently announced plans to meet with Donald Trump, an outspoken opponent of marriage equality, to discuss gay marriage -- compared the struggle for marriage equality to that of women's suffrage..."

Considering this, it seems to me that it's highly unlikely that Trump will entertain or support any change in pageant rules that would allow [trans]women to compete.  Most people who are against same-sex marriage also believe that homosexuality is a sin and/or believe that it is a lifestyle choice.  I think it's safe to say that people who harbour such beliefs, also have no tolerance or compassion for transsexuals.

What do you all think??
