The First Transgender Contestant of Miss Bumbum Pageant
With the entry of the Miss Bimbum pageant’s first-ever transgender contestants, this year, the competition is getting even more heated than usual. While the competition is in favor of the two participants in question, the other participants are willing to get them eliminated from the contest which is to be held in August.
The two transgender participants Giovanna Spinella and Paula Oliveira told that they are much confident of their capabilities, regardless of the persecution they are facing.
“They are feeling threatened because they are seeing a trans who is more beautiful than them. I’m not offended by what they said, because it’s clear they want me out because I’ve got a much sexier a–.” Said Paula Oliveira. Likewise, Spinella said that she is “honored to be able to take part” and compete with beauties representing the 27 states of Brazil in the eighth annual pageant.
The two participants have been criticized by one of the other participants, Ellen Santana, who says that Oliveira shouldn’t be allowed to compete because she was born a man.
“The competition is supposed to be 100 percent feminine and yet we’re going to have bottoms which are men’s bottoms. It doesn’t matter if they’ve had surgery, changed their names or sex on a piece of paper,” said the 31-year-old, Ellena Santana.
Similarly, the 29-year old, Debora Porto said that “It’s them who should leave because they are men with a man’s body and a man’s bottom. I think the whole diversity thing has gone too far.”
As the theme of the competition, this year has been chosen as “diversity”, the inclusion of transgender participants is allowed by the Miss Bumbum’s officials. The officials have even warned to eliminate the angry contestants if they keep on harassing the fellow transgender contestants.
The founder of Miss Bumbum, Cacau Oliver said “As long as these women have undergone sex reassignment surgery, and have become fully women, there is nothing that prevents them from taking part. The truth is that, by the law, they are 100 percent women”.
