True, but I support the right of these contests to have their own rules. If a transexual who have been whittled and enhanced by cosmetic surgery can enter the contest, then why shouldn't females who have medically altered their appearance be able to compete as well?
Just pass a "no cosmetic surgery" rule and you should be OK. That is, until some poor thing who had a car accident as a child and recovered to win regionals enters the nationals only to be refused because a doctor had to fix her face.
I thought a lot of them were medically altered. Wasn't that Miss California with the big silver earrings and the "opposite sex marriage" medically enhanced? I thought there was a boob job in there.
