No - they're good for a perve

Well, just term beauty indicates that would be true. Though, I don't personally know anyone who is in beauty pagents, so I can't say.

Women parading half naked around in bodies they paid for just to win a meaningless title and an ugly tiara they can lord over the losers, hell no that's not shallow.

of course they're not. it's all about saving uhhhh..whales? and something about peace on earth.

When I see or hear the term "beauty contest," conceit and insecurity jointly dominate all other values that it might claim to stand for, such as confidence, discipline, talent, etc.

^ That's not to say that I think the ladies are conceited or insecure. I like to think that they are just like every other women out there. It's just that I'm not too big of a fan of these beauty contests.

Yep, sure do. And I HATE, HATE, HATE those contests' mothers put their kids in!!!! They need to be punished (mothers..not kids) and severely.

I don't see what's wrong with a little fluff now and then. Life doesn't all have to be serious stuff.

I did'nt think so before. But then i saw the picture and it made me think again.

I think it stems from an insecurity that is then hidden behind a good cause such as children's hospitals or whatever. I'm sure there are better ways to raise awareness considering some of the answers I've heard these girls give to questions. I'm not sure I'd want my organization associated with beautiful dummies. I know that's a generalization but they make me shudder.

Usually I just watch pageants for a good laugh. Only contestants take them seriously.
18 yrs ago - Thursday 9/23/04 - 12:41:28 PM EST (GMT-5)
Totally, they are all 'beautiful' right? Wrong we're all beautiful in one way or another, it's not only looks that count.

How can they not be for shallow people? It's just a bunch of whores modeling half naked and saying answers to stupid questions their manager or whoever told them to say and they don't really mean it. (usually) Now in some really big pagent like Miss America got rid of the talent compeition, so that REALLY shows you how they just do it for losers to masturbate to. And the one's where the winners get MONEY for the contest are even more horrible. Espically the Swan.

yeah. Those girls are usually nasty anyway, cause they always get their way, or theyre just skanks. The competition is cutthroat and i don't see why people should be recognized for something they didnt even do. They didnt make themselves pretty (usually unless they had serious cosmetic surgery) they just grew up that way. They have no talent!
17 yrs ago, 9 mos ago - Tuesday 12/7/04 - 9:59:13 PM EST (GMT-5)
They're for shallow, bitchy, stupid girls.
17 yrs ago, 9 mos ago - Thursday 12/30/04 - 1:47:04 AM EST (GMT-5)
Yes because if they weren't, you'd think they could afford to replace all the (actually not all that great-looking) fake-as-hell catty bitches for the pageant for what everyone could respect rather than what Hugh Hefner would prefer. And most of them are insincere anyway because if they wanted world peace so bad, then why compete, and I'm sure they trashed the less-fortunate girls nonstop and nailed their boyfriends afterward.

I don't mean to label, but if it really was based upon intelligence and goodwill then it wouldnt matter how youd look in a bikini or whather you looked like a playboy centerfold.

Yeah I rather be known as a good programmer than someone who is just born pretty.

Yep, actually I do...
