I s’pose it’s a good thing they got rid of the swimsuit competition.
I think he’s saying, he would not like to have had to put up with seeing “AL” from the cartoon in a swimsuit…
The Miss America pageant originally sought to identify a single young woman who was smart, articulate, talented, who was also very pretty and had an “ideal” figure; competing the winners from all 50 states & US territories for the title of Miss America. The concept was to select a woman & crown her the most eligible & ideal woman in America, whom America’s girls could look up to and aspire to be like.
[I note that the competitor are typically of an athletic build–NOT the typical “stick-figure” anorexic-looking fashion models.]
This concept of the “ideal American woman” resulted in the disqualification of Vanessa Williams, who was exceptionally smart, very articulate, extremely talented, and very pretty with a great figure. Vanessa had done some soft-porn modeling (likely tame by today’s standards). When the pictures made the news–the newly crowned Vanessa was immediately & summarily disqualified.
The Miss America title is also and automatic bid to compete with the winners of similar pageants held in other countries, for the title of Ms. Universe–nominally acknowledged as the most eligible young woman of the world.
Eliminating the swimsuit & evening gown part of the pageant is supposed to convey the (PC) impression that the young woman’s looks are now less important in the competition.
As the competition prizes still include product endorsements & modeling opportunities, I doubt the winners are suddenly going to be selected from slightly overweight and average looking girls from the Honor’s debate clubs at Julliard and MIT.
Maybe that’s something the businesses who make those ‘modeling opportunities/endorsements, will do a re-think about..
“if looks are no longer part of this competition, and looks are a big part of OUR modeling business/product endorsement, maybe we need to re-think our association with Ms America..
While I hardly consider this an earth-shaking issue, this cartoon IS very funny–and does a GREAT job of poking fun at the PC insanities of the LOONY Left!
How long until the libertards discover that “this is sexual discrimination” because only females are allowed to win.
Never. IF it benefits women only, its ‘fair game’..
Oh my… you are forgetting trannies!! Your comment should say “women” in quotes.
