As a transsexual woman myself, I was very offended by this reality
show. The basic premise, that because Miriam is pre-operative then
"she's a he" is fairly crude and trans-phobic. However, the finale,
where after one contestant has finally won the prize money and a trip
with her, and Miriam says that "I'm not really a woman" merely confirms
and plays into such bigoted attitudes. In real life transgendered and
transsexual women have major issues in any revelations they may make to
partners, dates, or acquaintances. More than just a few have been
bashed and/or killed after such revelations have been made.
That being the case, this reality series is in very poor taste, catering to a prurient fascination with the apparent ambiguity of the titled star of the show. How much better would the show have been, if Miriam's "secret" had been out in the open at the start of the show. Then it would have been a show about exploring attitudes towards that, where the contestants examine their own attitudes to Miriam, and their own sexuality.
