So, I’m not a big fan of pageants–beauty pageants in particular. In fact, I was coerced by my theater teacher and some other folks to participate in one during my high school years for scholarship purposes, which I begrudgingly went along. It was a local Miss town pageant that claimed, like many other beauty pageants, that it was more than a beauty pageant. The truth is when the majority of your pageant’s segments focus on judging the outer appearances of contestants, in my book, it’s a beauty pageant. And we all know what standard of beauty is being utilized to measure everyone up against in those spaces!
