if I can't enjoy a beauty pageant.
Watch live video from missca2011 on Justin.tv
Who keeps these organizations going? Corporations, advertisers, the fashion industry, and ex-beauty queens? Do the contestants really think that these contests are held purely for their benefit? Symbiosis. But how completely useless. As if contestants and the winners are singled out for any reason other than physical appearance. At least they haven't been abolished in accord with the dictates of feminism, though there have been some changes (which aren't as extreme as some of the changes in Scandinavia).
I can only think of Bruce Willis's line from 12 Monkeys: "You're all dead."
