So tonight I tuned into Miss USA 2008, since Donny and Marie are the hosts and you know how I like my Osmonds. HOLY CRAP - this show is so offensive on several levels (refer to pic of me being offended). Here's an idea: If all the evangelical yahoos in this country are so worried about familyvaluesthis and familyvaluesthat, maybe they could they focus for a moment on getting some clothes on these young ladies. For the swimsuit competition, each gal came out in a bikini and a skimpy fur wrap, did a little smile and strut for the camera, and flirtatiously allowed the dead animal to slide off her shoulder. What year is this anyway? 1952? Jesus.
Miss USA is touting these women as role models for young girls. If I had a young daughter I would be using this show as an example of what not to aspire to. This sort of blantant objectification of women is one of the reasons we have sexual assault, because when you turn someone into an object they are no longer human. This shit turns my stomach. Sadly, it represents what much of this country sees as "entertainment". Fart jokes are smarter than this crap.
Oh and Miss Texas just won.
