The origins of it started in Miss MTF 2009
where girls were shy to take part, and the idea of each of them having own "man of trust"
to help with everything, campaign, defend from rude trolls, and always vote her ahead of other women encouraged many of them.
My experience as both contestant and organizer of pageants is that human psyche works a little different when we show our pictures and personality to be judged, rather than when we clown during ACC or a popcon.
I personally believe that having one person to share things with one contestant is simply for their own good, rather than losing and having your own cheerleader voting somebody else, because "I am also his girl and I him so much" while out of all people you count on *her* vote the most.
Also, there will be guys outside of chat threads, just making themselves known here, and perhaps they stand a smaller chance in some match-ups, so it will be good for them to have someone to console them. Of course Diana and I are here to do it, but I think I have made my point clear where it really comes from...
It is up to you guys and girls how you prefer to deal with it, there is really no official restrain for it
, I only encourage MTF girls to empathise with these who don't have many friends here yet at the first place.
Of course everybody can consult photos/intro and get some campaign and votes from their friends.
