Ms. Civil Rights

In November 9, 2018, at 9 PM Victoria Secret sent an important message from the Twitter platform from their Chief Marketing Officer, L Brands (parent company of Victoria Secret). The tweet said the following: “My remark regarding the inclusion of transgender models in the Victoria’s Secret Fashion Show came across as insensitive. I apologize,” he wrote in a statement tweeted from the Victoria’s Secret account. “To be clear, we absolutely would cast a transgender model for the show. We’ve had transgender models come to castings…And like many others, they didn’t make it…But it was never about gender. I admire and respect their journey to embrace who they really are.”

In this article, we can see how many people are going against the decision that the Victoria Secret model agency made. They accuse the Angel’s agency for being “discriminatory” and feel that their right is being held. But aren’t they doing the same?

“In 2012, 23-year-old Jenna Talackova was banned from Canada’s Miss Universe pageant for not being a “naturally born” female. The organization — run at the time by now U.S. President Donald Trump — changed the regulations after she threatened legal action. Talackova made it to the shortlist in Canada, but didn’t win entry to the international contest.”

They begin to allow transgender woman into this pageant because they were, somewhat, forced to. After Jenna Talackova was banned from being a part of Miss Universe pageant, because she was not naturally born as a woman, she decided to threaten our former United Sates president, Donald Trump, who use to run the Miss Universe pageant. closing doors to some one’s rights is not the same as being fully permitted to do something in a unanimous decision.
