How are pageants still relevant. My friend who works for woman rights for the state said they were good for being positive female roll models. I countered with the idea that if people think that it's sad some people think this is an acceptable female roll model.
There are many women doing things in the world that are amazing. Why don't we let the girls in porn wear the bikini's and take them off, and leave real roll modeling to girls more deserving.
Same for athletes, movie stars etc. Why should they be role models? What qualifies them for that? They are just people. Some of them, for example, possess extraordinary abilities and talents, but what does that have to do with being a decent human being? Zero. How about the parents who take the time teach their kids about humility, decency and generosity while working their asses off so their kids can have every possible advantage in life? Those are some real role models. Are Sidney Crosby or Peyton Manning really that relevant as "role models"?
So blatant racism is worse than smug, passive aggressive racism, right?
Good thing Canadians are so well known for being nice and accepting, otherwise someone might read this and think otherwise.
That's funny, because a real American would probably say something like "I'm so embarrassed for those intolerant, bigoted people who don't represent all the things that are great about America."
