  1. I agree with Kevin Balot on her views about transwomen joining Miss universe. yes, they are asking for equality, but ang nangyayari is that they are already invading yung ibang space na dapat ay para lamang sa natural-born women. They already have a platform to showcase their beauty which is yung Miss International Queen ba yun, now tama na ang gawin nila is to make it more impactful para makita ng mundo na ang mga transwomen can also be a epitome of true beauty and prmote their advocacies just like natural women in beauty pageants. Or why not create Miss Universe for Transwomen para fair diba? Just my cents...

    1. This! And andami kong alam na gays and bi na agree sa mindset ni Kevin B, masyado nang nagiging entitled minsan yung ibang trans...

    2. Wala namang mali si Kevin Balot sa sinabi niya. Sana lahat ng gender magrespetuhan. As a natural born woman, I respect everyone pero nasasad lang ako na ilang centuries na din namin pinaglalaban ang equality pero hindi naman kami nagooverstep. Sana kahit itong Miss Universe, ibigay niyo na lang sa natural born.

    3. 2:55 girl With your words and using the term “overstepping” you obviously never personally fought for any kind of equality. How have no idea.

    4. ako nagustuhan ko ang sinabi ni Kevin Balot. Actually she is there to also promote her being the queen of the transgender beauty pageant. Yun ang parang Miss U ng mga transgender and I respect that.

    5. Good points 12:18 and 2:55

    6. Ang nakikita ko dyan yung mga LGBTQ na galit sa sinabi ni KB eh yung mga pangarap ding manalo ng miss u. i have no qualms about having them in equal standing with women but there are just exceptions like this. Daming G na G magsabing mali siya when in fact she is just stating her opinion and her opinion is valid.

  2. I so agree with you Kevin balot. Tama ka naman talaga, it isn't equality if lahat nalang gustong salihan ng transgender. Take for example, transgender women joining women's sports where strength is required. Of course, biologically male ang transwomen, mananalo talaga sila.

  3. Kung gusto nila ng equality dapat yung mga tunay na babae pwede din sumali sa pageant nila!

    2. 12:44 meron bang tunay na babae na gustong sumali sa pageant ng transwomen?

      Delete
    3. 12:44. Gumawa sila ng pageant nila kasi they were being discriminated upon. If there is real equality they would not have to have a separate pageant. Yun yon

      Delete
    4. true naman.

      Delete
    5. Naisip nyo rin ba na if walang issue sa pagsali ng trans sa women's pageant, then there will be no need for a specific pageant for transm, which invalidates your point? you're thinking of invading space instead of coming together as one. You're thinking of yourselves instead of sharing love. That's why the fight for equality continues. Let that sink in.

      Delete
    6. 9:58 Naisip mo rin ba ang daming demand ng mga trans kesa sa mga tunay na babae na nakakararanas din ng opresyon? what if ako I transform myself as a man change everthing physically then I want to join a pageant for men will I be allowed? Dapat lang i allow ako kasi lalaki na ako eh physically emotionally pero di yun mangyayari kasi ang category natural born male. bakit parang pakiramdam ko lagi nalang babae ang nalalagay sa ganitong issue bakit walang ganito sa mga lalaki? Women are also oppress they still have their own battles. Ang dating kasi di na equality ang pinaglalaban DEMANDING too much is not fighting for equality. Sa panahon ngayon ang daming flatforms to promote that bakit kailangan nyo pang kunin ang para sa babae? KASI EQUALITY????

      Delete
    7. 08:16 Tama!! Mga demanding unang una ginusto nila yan hindi dapat ang mga babae ang mag adjust sa inyo.

    1. “Leave something to natural born woman” hahaha para namang ang daming kinuha ng transwomen sa natural born women. Pageant lang naman yang Miss U.

      Hayaan nyo na lang ang ibang bansa kung gusto man nilang transwoman ang magrepresent sa kanila.

    2. Actually, marami na nga silang kinukuha sa kababaihan—bathrooms, private spaces, sa sports, etc.

    3. 1:14 talaga? Pinagbawalan na nila ang mga kababaihan gumamit ng bathrooms?

      Delete
    4. 1:56 - hindi mo alam na may mga babae na hindi kmportable kung may trans sa female bathroom. Sa sporys nga, talo lagi ang biological female e.

  5. Eh tama naman sya! May sarili kayong pageant don na lang

  6. I actually agree with you.

  7. Tama naman. Para marecognize ang pageant para sa kanila dapat yung ang sinasalihan talaga. Malay natin one of these days talbugan pa niyan ang Miss U,knowing how creative and dedicated they are pagdating sa mga beauty pageants.

  8. tama naman din sya. they have their own pageant naman. it doesnt invalidate them either. marami din naman trans na ng a agree kay kevin.

    3. Only to a certain extent. They are not natural-born female.

    4. Im sorry to disappoint you but it's a NO...pano ba nalalaman ang gender ng isang tao, sa reproductice organ db..di ba yun ang binabasehan sa ultrasound para maidentify ang gender ng baby...maaring pede mapalitan ang gender identity (*physical o sa documents) ng isang tao pero ang reproductive organ pa rin anv magpapatunay kung ikaw ang isang babae o lalaki

      Delete
    5. No. No they are not. Real talk mahirap tanggapin, i like LGBT+ i am bi myself. Pero come on...gusto nang equality pero, di na marunong sumunod sa rules? Miss universe are for NATURAL born women, madami naman trans beauty pageant. I stand with Kevin Balot on this.

      Delete
    6. 1:08 they can be women with a heart but lets be realistic, sa birth certificate nung ipinanganak sila ang nakalagay dun Male not Female. if you truly love your own identity hindi mo kailangang magsumiksik sa karapatan ng mga natural born women.

      Delete
    7. before saying that, you should watch the beauty pageant where Kevin Balot was crowned. Hindi lahat ng transwomen ay kasing ganda ni Kevin Balot ok.

    8. In your dreams!!

  11. Lol Kevin, why apologize? Tama ka naman na nung una, the reason why ms. u just took a chance with trans is because almost no one is interested in pageants anymore, iilan na lang pbansa,ayan nagkaroon nang ingay, kung they did want equality edi buong countries sana they allow, ang kaso only spain does that.

  13. kevin has a point, us girls dont mind kesohadang magsuot kayo ng skirt, dress and high heels but respect din naman our beliefs and privacy. you want equality pero paano naman kami kung lahat ng amin gusto niyong panghimasukan. so much respect sa ibang LGBT members na kontento kung ano or sino sila without trying to convince themselves na naturally female/male sila.

    1. kasi si Kevin Balot ay hindi insekyora. Wala na siyang kailangan patunayan, she is a queen in her own right. Yung mga ibang LGBT na gusto pumasok sa lets say MU, insekyora. Hindi makuntento.

  19. A transgender is a transgender.
    A woman is a woman.
    THERE. IS. A. DIFFERENCE.

    Baliktarin niyo nga. Yung mga transgenders ba papayag na sumali ang mga babae sa mga pageants nila kung pagpilitan ng mga babae ang equality?
    Not against transgenders pero jusko naman!

  21. Lol. Ang mga baks nag iinarte nanaman! Kevin is 100% right on this one. Unfair sa real babae if sasali trans sa mga likes ng Miss U, ganun din if may trans pageant then sumali ang real girl. Equality lagi nyo sigaw right? Pero by the looks of it gusto nyo n lamang na kayo lagi.

  30. Unfair naman kasi talaga example ang babae pwede magka monthly period and experience menstrual cramps mood swings etc during pageant while trans hinde. So dun palang may advantage na sila e

  35. Im with Kevin Balot on this one. Kung tutuusin, qualified ang beauty niya sumali sa MU pero queen na siya sa mundo ng transgender so she doesnt need such validation na pasukin ang mundo ng MU.

    ReplyDelete
  36. nirespeto ko lalo si Kevin Balot. Sabagay ganun talaga pag Queen, hindi insekyora at hindi ipagpilitan pasukin ang beauty pageant ng mga kababaihan. Kevin Balot is already a queen in her own right. Kapantay nya sila Pia, Catriona in the trans category.

  37. No need to say sorry, Kevin. I agree with you.

    ReplyDelete
  38. why apologize for having an opinion? everyone is entitled to have it. To those who are offended , it's your choice to feel that way. stop thinking that the world revolves around you. It is unfair to force your own beliefs just because you think you're right.

    ReplyDelete
  39. She's actually right. Also, trans women are not naturally-born women no matter how hard you try to twist it. Those who are against her are the ones who should understand.

    ReplyDelete
  40. No need for KEVIN to apologize pero to play safe and too much stress from bashing, kaya nag apologize na din.

    ReplyDelete
  41. Kevin was bullied into saying sorry but she was right all along

    ReplyDelete
  42. I am so with KB.. we have equality but we also should know where to draw the line...asking too much, expecting too much... may limit din naman... ibigay na natin sa babae ang pageant para sa babae... may pageant naman para sa trans and we also respect that.

    ReplyDelete
  43. Kevin is right!

  44. Walang mali sa sinabi ni Kevin, tama sya in all levels lol! Saludo din ako kasi hindi ka man lang nagpalit ng pangalan kahit transwoman ka na.9

  45. Kaya pala nagtrending si Kevin sa twitter. Tama naman siya. May sarili silang pageant, dun sila sumali. And I know maraming LGBT member na creative and imaginative. Mas iimprove nila, tamang promotion baka mas bumongga pa sila sa Ms U. Lalo na ecompare natin nung MU2019, na sobrang downgrade ng production. Yun lang. ✌🏼

    ReplyDelete
  46. Kevin, no need to apologize. Many are still sane to be thinking and saying what you initially said. Transwomen should not join real women pageants. It's not about rights kyemeru anymore. It's just the thought of subconsciously telling yourself that everything is legit when you're watching real women compete with each other. The same goes to all gender's contests: men compete with men, trans compete with trans ... That simple and I really wonder why some couldn't understand that.

  56. they also want to compete in sports events reserved for women - of course they will have an advantage. what else do they want to take from women?

    ReplyDelete
  57. At the end of the day, male ego ang umiiral dito. Bakit yung transmen hindi naman ganyan maka-demand sa mga lalake? You push for so-called equality pero hindi na level ang playing field sa mga babae. Bawal ang may asawa at anak sa beaucons pero yung inoperahan para magkaroon ng female parts ok lang? At sa larangan ng sports napag-iiwanan mga babae dahil pati yun gusto ninyo pasukin. Nadadagdagan kayo ng “rights” pero yung mga babae nawawalan ng opportunities in return.

    ReplyDelete
  58. i support Queen Kevins answer. Iam for gay rights, but this is not this idea of joining a pagent for natural born female is like not realistic and and its should not be a gay rights issue... pick a battle that will benefit the whole community, hindi yung nagkavagina na kayo eh akala nyo lahat ng karapatan ng isang tunay na babae eh saklaw na kayo.. I will always quote Mother Ricky, lumugar kayo sa tamang ninyong lugar.

  60. Masasabi ko lang: Kevin Balot and Anton Diva are my favorite transgender women because they look very pretty. Gusto ko yung kantang Six Feet. Nagkataon pa na parehas silang lalaki ang pangalan, hindi nila pinalitan ang pangalan nila, which is interesting.
