“Naturally Born Female”

Below are three different articles about beauty pageant contestant Jenna Talackova.  She was excluded from the Miss Universe Canada pageant due to the fact that she is transgendered or a transitioned woman.

Thoughts?  I know there are a couple of different issues going on here but I will definitely post on beauty pageants later.  What do you think about someone being excluded because she is not a “naturally born female?”  What does that even mean to you?  Is it discrimination?  Was she rightly or wrongfully excluded?
