If you don't have to be a woman to enter the contest how can you reasonably take away a title for being married?

It is not about whether the rules are fair or not. She knowingly entered the pageant under those rules and lied. Those are grounds for losing the crown. If you do not agree with the rules then fight the rules before you accept them. Soon there will be no point in contracts or rules because people will continue to find a reason to sue so they can get their way.

Its time to end these contests. Why should people have to determine if the contestant is a dude or not. this world gets more fu*ked up every day. Let these freaks start their own contest.

The way TMZ wrote the story, it makes it seem like she's a man. And judging by some people comments here, they too believe she is a man. But she's not.

Ms. Carlina Duran represents the women of today and the future. As a Woman myself I strongly believe that we have face many obstacles in history thus leading us to maintain a strong leadership and role in society.
