Effective immediately I have voluntarily, completely, and utterly removed myself from the Miss Universe Organization. In good conscience I can no longer be affiliated in any way with an organization I consider to be fraudulent, lacking in morals, inconsistent, and in many ways trashy. I refuse to be part of a pageant system that has so far and so completely removed itself from its foundational principles as to allow and support natural born males to compete in it. This goes against every moral fiber of my being.”
—Miss Pennsylvania USA Sheena Monnin—who also claimed the pageant was rigged but coincidentally waited to make her announcement until after she lost the crown to Miss Rhode Island, Olivia Culpo—on Facebook. Culpo said she’d have no problem with a trans contestant.

This is the USA and you have every right to feel the way you do (as long as you don’t try to force it upon anyone else). You have done the right thing in removing yourself from this organization which you feel is so vile and repugnant. In all honesty, though, your protest might have carried a bit more weight had you withdrawn several weeks ago when the issue came up and the transgendered contestant was allowed to participate. Day late and a dollar short, Hon.
