Miss Universe 2006: beauty pageant par excellence!
Male impersonators pretending to be or maids representing the contestants from U.S. Virgin Islands, Slovenia and Belgium, respectively?
No, these are the photos of the actual contestants.
An East Asian and an African?
Yes indeed, but these women also happen to have been the contestants in the 2006 Miss Universe pageant.
A male transvestite and an eunuch posing together?
No, these are the [presumably] women who represented Puerto Rico (left) and Spain in the Miss Universe contest.
This is just the tip of the iceberg. It is time to consider the manliest women of the bunch.
Women looking like male transvestites, male-to-female transsexuals or eunuchs
Miss Angola - Ismenia Junior
Miss Belgium - Tatiana Silva
Tatiana also represented Belgium in the 2005 Miss World contest. Having a woman who doesn't look like one represent a nation twice in a row in high profile beauty pageants has to be a special kind of disgrace.

The classification of Miss Spain -- Elisabeth Reyes (shown above) -- is problematic; she looks like an eunuch in some pictures but less manly in others.
The contestants not listed above are not necessarily particularly feminine or attractive. However, it is obvious that the majority of the contestants in the 2006 Miss Universe pageant happened to be masculinized women. Curiously, the following women were also among the contestants.
Figure legend - Shown clockwise from top-left: Miss Denmark Betina Faurbye (top 20 finalist), Miss Australia Erin McNaught, Miss Ukraine Inna Tsymbaliuk (top 20 finalist) and Miss Turkey Ceyla Kirazli. Erin McNaught is not that feminine, but there is a difference between slight masculinization and what is seen in the pictures above this collage.
This pageant reeked of the direct and indirect influence of male homosexuals. Miss Universe Inc. continues to set up a façade of a beauty contest. Donald Trump seriously needs to think about setting up a separate beauty pageant geared toward the tastes of homosexual men. This pageant will allow homosexuals to have all the manly women they want without needing to make the pageant borderline palatable to the general public by having some feminine women thrown in, featuring some women with breast implants and periodically letting more feminine women emerge top ranked (see following image).
Figure legend - Miss Universe 2006 Zuleyka Rivera (left) and Miss Universe 2005 Natalie Glebova. Although the attractiveness of these women cannot be compared objectively because they are of different ethnic backgrounds, it is obvious who is more feminine.
If one is to have beauty pageants at all, then there should be at least one high profile beauty contest that focuses on what most people prefer, i.e., feminine beauty, and this contest needs to be natural, i.e., major cosmetic procedures such as nose jobs and breast implants should disqualify a potential contestant. Other suggestions for improving international beauty pageants have been addressed elsewhere.
