An existing lawsuit had been brought forth against Miss USA by a transgender woman on the basis of discrimination. On Thursday, a Federal judge dismissed this case.
The Daily Caller wrote:
“Pageant contestant Anita Noelle Green sued Miss USA in December of 2019 after she alleged the pageant denied her application and refunded her entry fees on the day she applied.
The Miss U.S.A pageant only allows “natural born biological females” to compete, according to a Motion to Dismiss filed by the pageant.”
Miss USA claims that they maintain the first amendment right to associate with who they please, and that the pageant is intended only for biological women.
The association argues that the pageant is intended to boost the confidence of young women, and that they should not be forced to compete against biological men.
After all, it wouldn’t be much of a confidence booster to a woman if she lost a beauty contest to someone who was born a man.
And what would happen if it were constantly biological women winning the pageant as anticipated, while also allowing biological men to compete? Would the men then sue for discrimination? Because the judges felt they did not fit the bill of beauty?
Perhaps somewhere down the line there will be an opening for a gender neutral pageant, but for now, the case regarding Miss USA has been settled.
