Miss World

Some poignant words about the recent Miss World contest from a feminist who used to picket the event in the 70s and 80s.

"At least it isn't the licensed child abuse (or that's what it looks like to me, at any rate) that we watch on Britain's Got Talent, where there is no age limit at all - you could enter your toddler if you wanted to - and where to see a prematurely-sexualised 11-year-old reduced to tears, or a vulnerable middle-aged lady driven to despair, seems to have become part of the pleasure of the show. A hundred, apparently robust, grown-ups in bikinis don't seem quite as offensive as that."

The annual Miss World Contest was driven from the TV schedule by political correctness; however, it was replaced by something infinitely worse.
