the ms universe pageant has just stated on tv here. i’ve just turned off the television in disgust. what is the point of this and why in this third millennium do we continue to tolerate and perpetuate such a thing? i’m not sure why this pageant thing irks me, but it does on a visceral level.
is it the vapid commentary? or the even more vacuous contestants? or the concept with a variety of skin tones most of these women look like they are cut from the same mould?
i’m going to take this opportunity to go curl up in bed with a book.
