Straight dude’s obsession with “Barbie-Doll” girls.
Face and body of a model. (sure, ok dude, but that’s not gonna last very long)
Personality of a damp paper sack.
Why is this so fucking fascinating?
ps- women who play this game are why I can’t / won’t fall in with the “Uterine Sisterhood” brand of feminism.
You are not my “sisters”.
You don’t give a shit about my struggles.
You don’t even acknowledge my existence unless you feel like I’m “skinny shaming”.
Y’all are playing the “male gaze” game to the hilt.
Willingly. Happily. With gusto.
I am compared with you.
I am unwanted because of you.
Y’all ARE my direct competition.
I can never be you for a hundred reasons (including genetic predisposition), nor would I want to.
But as a woman, it is expected of me.
Y’all are helping with that, by the way.
pps- to the few guys (very goddamn few) who have figured out that what is ‘inside’ is more important than a vacant smile, empty eyes, and a spray tan:
I wish there were more of you. WAY more.
The world would be a MUCH better place.
John Oliver Is Doing Some Really Good Investigative Journalism
His 15-minute Miss America segment began with jokes about how dated a beauty pageant seems, and his incredulity at some of the questions contestants are asked. He took some shots at Donald Trump, who owns a competing pageant. Then he zeroed in on the Miss America organization’s claim of making $45 million in scholarship money available to young women each year.
"Forty-five million," Oliver said. "That is an unbelievable amount of money. As in, I literally did not believe that."
His staff researched documents, finding a federal disclosure form that said the pageant spent $482,000 in scholarships in 2012. They researched tax forms on statewide pageants, finding several scholarship offers that couldn’t possibly be awarded at the same time were added together to help reach the final figure. In other words, people shouldn’t confuse money that may be available with money spent.
That’s journalism, minus any apparent attempt to let pageant officials offer their side. The organization subsequently issued a statement not specifically addressing Oliver’s charge that Miss America was being misleading, but said that “as with any scholarship, the full amount awarded may not always be used as recipients plans change or evolve.”
