Pic of the Week: The Beauty of Democracy

Jenna Talackova

In case you’ve been living under a rock these past few weeks, there has been a ton of hoopla around Jenna Talackova’s rejection and the acceptance into the Miss Universe Canada pageant.  What happened?  Well, Jenna was initially kicked out of the pageant because she wasn’t born a woman.  She’s transgender and a pretty good-looking one at that!  The reason for the reversal had nothing to do with the good graces of the pageant officials, but rather the pressure from open-minded, accepting people around the world.  Perhaps this one beauty pageant will set the stage for greater acceptance in every sphere of life for anyone who chooses to live life in his/her own special way.  Way to go Jenna!
