Iraq gets first beauty queen since 1972 – No stoning yet scheduled!

“I’m very happy to see Iraq going forward,” the new beauty queen told AFP as she tried to fend off a scrum of admirers hoping to clinch a selfie. “This event was huge and put a smile on the faces of the Iraqis.”

Miss Iraq Shaima Qassem , still not scheduled to be stoned to death.

  • Look how pale she is! She could be German. Arabs don’t let dark-skinned girls win beauty contests.

    • Hey they got a Blonde in that line up!

      Do any Asians let dark-skinned girls win beauty pageants?

      Dark complexion = working in the fields under the hot sun = low class.
      Light complexion = high class.

      • (Notice how it’s described as “racist”. “Casteist” would be closer.)

          Everyone likes white women.
          Not to say that there are not beautiful women of almost all races, but lighter skin seems to be the beauty standard for almost all cultures.
          When men, across all cultures and ethnicities, can all agree on almost any standard, then it’s not simply just another subjective or arbitrary standard.

          • Well, definitely what Martin B said. Also in India I’m sure there’s a caste dimension. The Indo-Europeans would have been paler than the natives they conquered.

            Look at the contestant’s facial features too; it’s not just the lighter skin.
            And yes, I’m sure caste has a lot to do with it, but I have no clue what the different castes look like, but I’m sure any Indian could tell from a mile away.

          • I fished out a post Frau did about this a year ago (time does fly, doesn’t it)? I find the subject very interesting.


            Also, check out this thread from SDA, starting with the comment by EBD at the top.

            Thanks for all that research that confirms that I’m a genius!

            OK, I get the white/light skin part, but why are Caucasian features on women considered almost universally attractive?
            You would think, that everyone would prefer that which is most familiar, but noooooo, ‘day all want da white wimmins’.
            Even a lot of Asian women are getting plastic surgery to make them look more western.

            I’m at a loss darlin.

            The challenge is coming up with objective, as opposed to subjective, attractions of white womanflesh. A case can be made for white women offering the broadest menu of unique features – what other race offers blonde & red hair in addition to black & brown hair, green & blue eyes in addition to brown eyes, freckles in addition to plain complexions – so that might have something to do with it. That doesn’t really address the attractiveness of Caucasian facial features, though.

      Same with the Indians.

  • El Martyachi

    There’s something decidedly un-Islamic about this pageant… can’t quite put my finger on it…

    • I know, can’t quite place it!

      • andycanuck

        They all support the Argos?

  • Drunk_by_Noon

    If only all Iraqi refugees looked like her…

    • As a married man I will neither affirm nor deny support for your comment.

      • Drunk_by_Noon

        Yeah, but you are married to K, so you win either way.

    • Drunk_by_Noon

      Normally I’m not into goats, but that one’s a looker!
      As in it would look good on a rotisserie.

      • David Murrell

        You guys are so funny on this thread! I’m in stitches!

      • Canadian

        And she`s a virgin too!
        Never had an ahmed…..

    • andycanuck

      Is she named “Daisy”?

      • Canadian


  • andycanuck

    Clinch a selfie? Justin was there too???

  • dance…dancetotheradio

    I can see her face so I have nothing left to say.

  • bob e

    pretty much a witty narrative BCF .. i think before she is stoned, the
    filthy jihadi’s with flesh eating bacteria will gang rape the be-jesus out
    of her ..

    what a lovely woman
