Just two days after a landmark conference on the sexual and other abuse of women, we have this list of “beauty” contestants.
These competitions do nothing more than degrade women by reducing them to mere sex objects to be used and abused for the pleasure and amusement of men.
How very archiac. How very Vincentian.
