Miss America is scrapping its swimsuit competition, will no longer judge based on physical appearance

Miss America is scrapping its swimsuit competition, will no longer judge based on physical appearance, by Catherine Thorbecke.

Miss America is scrapping its swimsuit competition and will no longer judge contestants based on physical appearance, the organization announced Tuesday. …

In place of the swimsuit portion of the competition, Miss America contestants will now take part in a live interactive session with the judges, according to the organization. …

The contestants will also discuss how they will advance their chosen causes, called “social impact initiatives” by the Miss America Organization.

Now the SJWs can compete! To be judged only by the content of their character, their ideology, and their virtue signalling!

Ever noticed how feminists are always trying to rearrange affairs so that they can compete better against hot women in getting the attention of the more desirable men?

Men of course are biologically programmed to make an initial judgement of female fertility and fitness by looks. Yep, we all do it because men who didn’t do it tended not to pass on their genes so much. Our notion of beauty is our estimate of fertility and genetic fitness — and is primarily based on looks. (Women judge men more on whether they will provide good genes and support for their children, so men’s looks are less important. The sexes are inherently asymmetric, for the obvious biological reasons.)

So for  Miss America contest to ignore looks is profoundly anti-science and a major triumph for the non-hot women. It’s as if the 100 meters race for women had a new rule: no use of legs.

Prediction: Eventually a fat or moderately ugly woman will win, and everyone will lose interest in the Miss America concept. Yes, the SJWs will have bullied their way into winning, but the prize will have become devalued. Another Pyrrhic victory for PC. Well done feminists, another cultural edifice destroyed by your ambitions.
