Miss USA 2012, Miss Rhode Island, Olivia Culpo, received Twitter question and answered ‘carefully’
(…)In the final round, Culpo had to answer a question from Twitter, a first for the pageant, which was held at the Planet Hollywood Resort & Casino. She was asked, “Would you feel it would be fair that a transgender woman wins the Miss USA title over a natural-born woman?”
She took a pause and said that she has embraced the Miss Universe Organization’s decision to allow transgender competitors to compete in the pageant. “I do think that that would be fair, but I can understand that people would be a little apprehensive to take that road because there is a tradition of natural-born women, but today where there are so many surgeries and so many people out there who have a need to change for a happier life, I do accept that because I believe it’s a free country,” she told the audience.(…) emphasis added.
I watched the last hour of the Miss USA Beauty Pageant last evening as a window into the state of these competitions and our society’s acceptable trends in the ‘modern world’. I was immediately taken by the completely staged and scripted events and the ‘carefully’ videoed presentations of the entrants. The contestants were mostly professional pageant entrants who had vast experience in the business of displaying their physical features from head to toe, as well as training in answering pleasingly. Spontaneity was not a part of this game of world class beauty and poise that epitomizes the Miss USA Pageant. There was not a moment of truth, freshness, or true beauty. Let me sum up by saying that the entire event was as phony as its Las Vegas, Nevada, location, and Mr. Donald Trump its organizer and promoter.
It was quite an eye opener to see the United Nation’s Agenda to rewrite the human roles of gender in action as this event illustrates.
