Vote for Education & Glamour ? Really?

How can voting for the most beautiful girl on campus support education? I do not mean to sound as a feminist, as I am all in for men opening doors … but really something is undeniably wrong with our educational system, if universities are competing with each other on who has “the fairest of them all”. And then I imagine kids deciding which university to attend basing that on: “Oh, University A has the best chicks!”

Anyone with me?

    The trouble with beauty pageant contests (in some people’s perspective), is that they’re a win/win to all parties involved:

    -The girls get the attention and ego affirmation
    - A great amount of viewers wants to see pretty young girls walking around in skimpy bikinis and fabulous dresses
    - Sponsors jump at the opportunity to serve all the above mentioned viewers, especially big spenders like elite University students who want to cheer their university’s representative
    - The media loves to cover them because they increase sales/ratings of their magazines/Tv Shows

    In other words, feminists (or people like you who simply find this wrong) can register their displeasure all they want, but the pageants are here to stay..

      I hate how all girls are obsessed with perfect noses, nails, lips and eyebrows!

    it’s also a good indicator for girls.
    the ones attending school in hopes of finding a husband can now know where competition is less harsh and choose a school in consequence.

    Using education for a beauty pageant cause / event is not ethical and lame.
