Judges of a beauty pageant always look at all sorts of things before giving out a crown. I mean, it should be.
The contestants are determined if she is well-spoken or talented or if they can think quickly and under pressure. However, one big pageant is now being sued for selecting contestants based on appearances.
Recently, three rejected Miss France contestants have joined forces with a feminist group to take the beauty contest to court for alleged discrimination based on appearance and breach of labor laws.
Of course, the three instigators hide behind a mask of anonymity but they teamed up with “French feminist group Osez Le Feminisme, which translates to Dare To Be Feminist.”
“There are also requirements in a place like a minimum height of 5’ 5″, no tattoos, no piercings other than ears, plus entrants need to be single, have never married, and do not have children.” How ghastly. They can’t even “change their hair or gain weight.”
Osez-le-Féminisme (Dare to be Feminist) said it had filed a complaint with the state labor tribunal on behalf of the former contestants after previous complaints about the annual pageant had proven ineffective.
Here’s what Alyssa Ahrabare said to Le Monde newspaper:
“Despite protesting every year against a competition that drives sexist values, nothing ever changes.Trying to raise awareness is no longer enough, we’ve decided to use legal means to advance the cause of women.”
The daughters of Sappho targeted the pageant by filing “their complaint against the Miss France company and Endemol Productions, who are behind the annual TV broadcast.” The deepest pockets they could find. The paperwork “alleges that Miss France is a vehicle for sexist values.”
They rely on liberal statutes to declare the pageant rules illegal, “since French labor law forbids companies from discrimination based on morals, age, family status or physical appearance.” Even a beauty contest. It’s the inner beauty that counts. Tell that to the drooling males in the audience who are only there to watch the swimsuit contest.
They won’t buy a ticket to an ugly contest or spend any money. The ugly winner won’t sell much product and the whole industry will soon be out of business in the name of socialist fairness. Everyone forgets that with Socialism, the only place for everything to even out is at zero.
