Miss Maryland USA is a MISTER

June 7th, 2024 11:46 AM

Congratulations to the beautiful, poised and very feminine winner of Miss Maryland, Mr. Bailey Anne Kennedy.

The Miss Maryland USA competition took place last week and crowned none other than a transgender woman - so a biological man - as Miss Maryland. Men have infiltrated women’s sports and taken spots and awards away from them. And now, unfortunately more than once, men are taking spots away from women in beauty pageants, too.

“Bailey Anne is the newly crowned Miss Maryland USA 2024,” Miss Maryland USA wrote on its Instagram page.

Kennedy, 31, markets himself as a “Proud Military Wife.” It looks like, according to his Instagram, he married his husband, in 2019. Though it doesn’t seem that either spouse considers their marriage to be the gay marriage that it is.

Reports indicate that Kennedy works with the U.S. Military’s United Service Organizations (USO), which works to boost troop morale. Kennedy’s Instagram is flooded with his involvement and work with the USO, but that’s not all Kennedy is an advocate for.  

During an interview with DC News Now on Wednesday, Kennedy noted that when he won the pageant it was a “whirlwind because I knew it was bigger than me. I knew that it was going to mean a lot for all the LGBTQ kids out there who might feel like they don’t belong in a box — like me growing up.”

Kennedy also added that he “hopes that it will open up some doors, open up some hearts for people to see that there are many aspects of LGBT community out there and I hope I can be a positive contribution to society in making a difference like the USO program like I’m working with.”

Kennedy will now move on to the Miss USA pageant that is scheduled for August 4, 2024 in Los Angeles, California.

One of the issues with this win, other than the fact that it’s completely outrageous and unfair for the actual women competing, is that previous Maryland pageant winners have had significant interaction with young children in past years. 

Last year, Miss Maryland USA posed with some children at the 2nd Annual Kids Crushing Cancer event and similarly, Miss Maryland of the Miss America franchise spoke to middle schoolers at a private school for children with learning challenges in D.C., The Federalist pointed out. 

The Federalist also noted that Kennedy will be in “close proximity to many children and especially young girls as a Miss Maryland USA pageant winner” and emphasized that this is “another example of how queer politics makes the public square toxic by exposing children as young as preschoolers to sex.”

Sadly, this isn’t the first time a man has won a women’s beauty pageant. And honestly, given the current trajectory of our culture, I don’t see it being the last.

In April, Caia Souza, a 26-year-old man, won Miss Valley Isle USA pageant in Hawaii.

Marina Machete, a 28-year-old man, won Miss Portugal in October. In July of 2023, Rikkie Valerie Kolle, a 22-year-old man, won Miss Netherlands.

This is outrageous and is insulting to real women.

Someone go take the crowns off those dudes' delusional heads.
