Under the present technology, doctors can't change the sex of a person. What they can do is just to remove the sex organ and create something look like (but unfunctional ) the opposite sex organ. So a transexual is really just has his or her oringinal sex organ removed. His or her hormosones (XX or XY) can't be changed. Therefore people shouldn't go for such operation and the govt shouldn't change the sex in the IC of 'transexuals'. However, 'transexual' people should not think their sexes has been changed -- they are not.
So for Miss Universe beauty contest, transexuals are just not qualified to participate. It is not an issue of exclusiveness. A man can cross dress and behaves like a woman but he is still a man.
