NEW YORK, New York (The Adobo Chronicles) – In a commentary in the Feb. 3 edition of The Wall Street Journal, biologists Colin Wright and Emma Hilton explain that, scientifically, there are only two sexes, male and female, and there is no sex “spectrum.” They also stress that “biologists and medical professionals” must stop being politically correct and “stand up for the empirical reality of biological sex.”
The comments by the biologists immediately drew fierce reaction from netizens — members of both the straight the LGBT communities — with many arguing that the only two sexes that exist are (having) sex or no sex.
ATLANTA, Georgia (The Adobo Chronicles, Atlanta Bureau) – Thanks to Miss Phlippines, Miss Laos and other Miss Universe contestants, pageant organizers have announced that they will scrap the “National Costume Competition” starting next year.
Miss Philippines appeared in an over-the-top silver gown and oversized headdress. She was tucked in between two giant silver eagles which supposedly represented her country’s national bird.
Miss Laos, on the other hand, paraded with a huge elephant while making a political statement about protecting the Amazon rainforest.
”While we appreciate the time and effort put in by contestants and their designers to grab the most attention during the annual national costume competition, many costumes were not only outrageous but have not been representative of the contestants’ native countries,” a Miss Universe Organization spokesperson said.
”This year alone, we’ve seen eagles and elephants, a well as out-of-this-world headdresses that remind us of the San Francisco cabaret show, “Beach Blanket Babylon.”
Pageant officials also complained that the bulky costumes have caused serious space problems at the pageant venues, but have also irked the airlines because of the oversized luggage and baggage brought in by the Miss Universe hopefuls.
