So it is Mizuho all over again. But does she sound like Yui Horie?

As far as traps go, she's pretty dang smokin' hot. I bet there are some insecure males out their weirded out right now. Honestly I think these pageants are the stupidest thing ever, its just a popularity perv contest. Maybe some women feel all empowered by them, but it seems like a misogynistic relic to me.
My favorite quote from the article:

'She feels like a real girl and she is a real girl. She didn’t expect people to question it,' Davila told thestar.com.

Feels authentic, huh?

That would require a Control group though.

Is it still a trap when they're surgically gender changed? I thought traps were only crossdressers. She's still damn hot.

The only thing that bothers me about that beauty pageant is all how much of those people are natural, and not the culmination of countless ridiculous surgeries that has a side effect of turning you into michael jackson.

Incidentally, if the contract does explicitly state that you must be genetically female to be an eligible contestant...

Which I doubt it does.

I guess it depends on how broad your definition of whats a trap is. But it would probably be more suitable for cross dressers and the like to be considered 'traps' than those that have total sex changes. Didn't really think to much about it to be honest when I wrote it, was being mildly sarcastic and generalising (and poking fun at insecure folks and hating on pageants).

I looked up the entry form for Miss Universe (well the Australian one), the conditions are... facepalm worthy, surprised they haven't been blasted for discrimination years ago. The 'natural born female' requirement in the Canadian one, if you wanted to take it literally, probably means none of the contestants can probably enter, haha.

I don't know what else to say about this, except it's her choice to present herself the way she likes it even if it means taking a risk to be eyeballed by the batshit insane and their genitals.

^ But I love auto complete, it lets me peek at all the ridiculous shit people look up. I wonder how this will work out. It's not just a simple lawsuit from a single person anymore. It probably ends up as nothing happens. I'd be amazed if Google gets banned in Japan entirely and they make their own like China.

This man just got the short end of the stick with all of society's ridiculously stupid flaws. Like here, any random female at any condition can totally and randomly accuse any man of sexual assault and even when the accusation turns out to be total baloney, that man will never find a job again cause those things just spread like wildfire over everything media.

In my dictionary, if they've gone to all the surgical pain and trouble, its not a "trap". And yeah, I'm betting not a single girl in that group photo isn't "altered" in some way.

rofl, the funny thing about the Australian qualifications is that at no point do I see any requirement to actually be female.

That's interesting. I wonder why his name was linked to all those disparaging results. Really, your company shouldn't be dumb enough to fire you for something like that, but it doesn't surprise me.

At first, I was like "Oh my god, it's just an egg."

Then I read this:
Quote:
There was no place to hide the plastic eggs, which were filled with donated candy or coupons redeemable at nearby businesses. So thousands of eggs were placed in plain view on the grass.
Of course those parents want to get in there and get those coupons... The economy is that bad.

Facebook Asserts Trademark on Word ‘Book’ in New User Agreement

"Facebook is trying to expand its trademark rights over the word “book” by adding
the claim to a newly revised version of its “Statement of Rights and
Responsibilities,” the agreement all users implicitly consent to by using or accessing
Facebook.

You may recall that Facebook has launched multiple lawsuits against websites
incorporating the word “book” into their names. Facebook, as far as we can tell,
doesn’t have a registered trademark on “book.” But trademark rights can be
asserted based on use of a term, even if the trademark isn’t registered, and adding
the claim to Facebook’s user agreement could boost the company’s standing in
future lawsuits filed against sites that use the word."

How does making users agree to that have any standing in lawsuits? Unless they can prove that their competitors or what-have-you agreed to it, then it really holds no more water than a random internet petition.
