Jenna, who carries a Canadian passport, driver's license and birth certificate that all identify her as a woman, appeared on Tuesday with Los Angeles-based attorney Gloria Allred, who is famous for representing clients including a string of Tiger Woods' ex-lovers and Nicole Brown Simpson's family during the O.J. Simpson trial, demanding to be allowed back into the contest.

I think it’s a most surprising way for this issue to get this attention. I don’t really get the beauty pageant thing; I would have expected them to be extinct by now. I guess it’s a pretty girl thing – lost on me – but I have enormous respect for Jenna and for ultimately putting this last big bias on the world radar for us.
