During his show last Friday, Fox News host Bill O’Reilly seemed supportive of a transgender woman’s right to compete in the Miss Universe pageant (video below).

During a segment about Miss Universe’s decision to prohibit Jenna Talackova from participating in the pageant because she is transgender, O’Reilly asked: “What right does the Miss Universe pageant have to violate this lady’s right to be a woman? They are basically saying because you weren’t born a woman you don’t have a right to be a woman..[I]t doesn’t sound right to me.”
