I just keep picturing this as an alternate universe where only men are judged for their looks, are completely talked down to and applauded for things like well, ridiculous talent competitions and swimsuits. I mean, this kind of drives home just how fucking stupid beauty pageants are. I hope.

The primary objection was that the biggest provider of scholarships for women in the world is a fucking beauty pageant.
That, and I don't think there's even *nearly* as much social stigma against men who don't work hard to look good as there is against women who don't.

crap I'm tired and five starred myself. I guess now I'll have to show myself in a swimsuit. Which is gonna result in a lot less stars.

Fair enough; I have little to no knowledge of gay communities, nor other communities where men are expected to maintain a certain level of beauty.
But I still think it is fair to say that a woman in the US is much, much more likely to be punished (verbally or otherwise) for being 'unattractive' than a man.
@ROUS : I too long for the day that women are acknowledged and rewarded for doing important things, like throwing a ball through a hoop and standing over 6'5".

I'm fine going to drag shows and love gay culture. That said, this made me incredibly uncomfortable. There's this underlying uncomfortable, closeted gay vibe under this that makes it so much worse. Just bring them out in little tight pants and angel wings already, you're not fooling anyone.
You could probably do that and it would still be spun like you are offering a modern retelling of classical depictions of angels and shit.
