Miss Pennsylvania Resigns In Protest of Transgender Candidates
Last week, Miss Pennsylvania Sheena Monnin resigned before the Miss USA crowning in protest of the decision to allow transgender candidates to compete. Monnin wrote a letter to the Miss Universe Organization, explaining the reasons for her resignation:
[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. I believe in integrity, high moral character, and fair play, none of which are part of this system any longer.
