Miguel Souza Tavares’ comment about transgender beauty queens sparks controversy


Miguel Souza Tavares’ comment on the victory of Marina Machetti, a transgender model, in the Miss Portugal contest, in the opinion section of TVI’s “Jornal Nacional”, led by José Alberto Carvalho (JAC), sparked a wave of criticism.

“It was not her that won the competition, it was a surgery – or several – of plastic surgery plus molecular medicine. That’s what was elected. The jury appreciated the results of successive plastic surgeries that went well and molecular or cellular treatments,” Souza began. Tavares pointed this out. The JAC then asked: Did you marry this woman? The journalist replied: “No, no. Not at all. Neither do you…” Souza Tavares confirmed: “No I, not at all.” There is a woman who could compete more beautiful than this Miss Portugal,” and stated that he was “not old enough” to be concerned if someone accused him of transphobia.

Since their release on Thursday, the comments have been widely rejected. Broadcaster José Carlos Malato was one of the first to express his dissatisfaction: “And will she marry any of you? Marriage does not depend only on the will of the man. And men talk as if they are in a café drinking cups.” Designer Nuno Baltazar left a message in the comment box: “The good part of these things is That these men come out of the caves in which they live and show themselves as they are.” Actress María João Vaz, who is transgender and part of the crew of the film “Morangos com Açúcar,” was also angry: “Ignorant, sexist and transphobic. Lack of empathy, arrogance and sheer stupidity. “How sad and what a disappointment Jose Alberto Carvalho is,” he wrote. Thousands of Internet users are talking about “transphobia” and “masculinity.”
