PAGEANT: Nothing is sacred

| July 7, 2024 1:00 AM

I am not a fan of the Miss USA competition. I thought with the women’s movement, we men were not to see women as sexual objects. Not sure what the point is about the bathing suit competition. Maybe it is a test for men, to see if they can see the inner beauty of the contestants, instead of their gorgeous bodies, who knows! 

They always ask questions to see how smart the contestants are and give answers like, I want to stop work hunger, world peace, or feed the homeless, etc. Did you catch the question asked this year — “what she thought about competing with someone who has undergone gender reassignment surgery?” Oh, she gave a nice generic answer and I am not criticizing her. 

It’s the left who I am criticizing. Even a women’s pageant is not sacred anymore. Personally, I do not want to see the man, who now thinks he is a woman, in a bathing suit. Of course that makes me homophobic or whatever other adjective they can call me. 

That’s OK, I am happy being a man. I would bet my life, there is not a real woman on this planet, who would be happy losing any kind of contest to someone who claims to be other than what they were born with. If they say otherwise, maybe a lie detector test!
