Men actually watch those? I don't know any who do. I thought only women did.
The whole American 'Beauty' pageant thing is beyond weird anyway. It's not even about beauty--otherwise how would a plain dumpling like Honey BooHoo win lots of them? There's apparently a formula you have to stick to :roll: Have a look at them and they could all be the same person with different wigs and occasional skin tone variation.
I don't know ANYone who watches those. Not male, not female. I learn about it in the papers next day, somewhere, by glancing at the headlines on the newsstands. "Drat! I missed it again," I would sigh, and get on polishing shoes next door to the newsstand.

All know that the last time it was still a beauty contest, the winner was called Kayla, and the two runner-ups, Chicago and Bloom.

Ten years ago they were Krystal, Aimee, and Brittney.

Thirty years ago they were Anne, Marjorie and Susan.

Sixty years ago they were Daisy-Mae, Peggy-Sue, and Barbara-Ann.

Next year they will be Dr. Livingstone, Dr. Prof. President Blech and Dr. Myopia, MD, FRCP(C).

Looking back over past winners I would say they are anything 'but' natural beauties. It's hard to tell what they look like for the most part. I suppose it must be a yank thing. Y'all love your big hair/mouths/teeth. I didn't see any Audrey Heburns, Elizabeth Taylors, or Ava Gardners in there, just a lot of unmemorable clones. Still, if it titillates the Nick-As of the world it has to be a good thing.....

How times have changed. In ancient Greece it was the male body that was celebrated. Those days are over. now the only thing celebrated about the male body is the size of the wallet it carries.

Those days are over and up until recently it was the female body that was celebrated as something beautiful. But we've done our best to pervert beauty into sexual arousal so now the only thing worth celebrating about a woman is her ability to complain in a uniquely feminist fashion. All else are just imitations of male characteristics. Whoever is the best complainer and spout the best platitudes in support of progressive values will be the winner.

Bikini reveals more form and that might further confuse pronouns in Canada.

I think if there is a forum that objectifies people then it is 'Miss' and 'Mr' whatever and they should get their gear off for it...and make me jealous.

I really don't care too much what is happening between their ears, but it does improve their credentials ..just a tad in my opinion.

btw..did i mention my cousin was Miss UK in 1984 and miss world a year or two later, not sure why i'm mentioning it..oh yeah, did i mention my cousin was Miss UK in 1984 and miss world a year or two later?
