The first official transgender Miss Universe contestant now says that having a vagina does not automatically make someone a “woman.”
You know… contrary to science, and everything.
Angela Ponce somehow won the title of “Miss Spain” which sent her to the Miss Universe contest this year making her. the first transgender contestant in history.
Ponce did not win the pageant, mind you, but the Spaniard certainly made a splash.
According to Breitbart Sports:
In a video posted by Agence France-Presse, Ponce insisted that vaginas don’t make the woman.
“Having a vagina does not make me a woman. I am a woman and already was before my birth,” Ponce exclaimed. Pointing to her head and then her midsection. Ponce added, “Because my identity is here, not down there. This determines my being a woman.”
Ponce claimed that a man can be a woman if only he thinks he is a woman.
I was trying to think I was a millionaire, yesterday. My bank account didn’t “identify” with me.
Breitbart went on:
Despite her claims that being a woman is only in her mind, Ponce did complete the physical transformation into becoming a woman by completing her surgery in 2014, her Miss Universe bio page reports.
Even though Ponce did not come anywhere near winning the pageant, Miss Universe officials did produce a special feature for the transgender contestant in a segment entitled “a walk to remember.”
