Three top Miss America officials quit over emails ridiculing pageant winners for their appearance, intellect and sex lives

The top leadership of the Miss America Organisation, implicated in an email scandal that targeted past pageant winners for abuse based on their appearance, intellect and sex lives, resigned on Saturday, with the outgoing president apologizing to a winner whose weight he ridiculed.

The president, Josh Randle, told The Associated Press his comment responding to an email to his private account about the physical appearance of 2013 winner Mallory Hagan came months before he started working for the Miss America Organization in 2015. But he said it was wrong.

    TV beauty contests are little more than cheap time wasters cobbled together by big “modeling agencies”.

      I disagree: there’s a reason why ‘learned’ and ‘beautiful’ are not often found in the same woman. Beautiful women can get by without as much learning and knowledge as other less-beautiful women. They get free passes to a lot of things. Accordingly beautiful women need to find jobs or husbands before their sexual market value declines too much and they have to rely on their undeveloped other skills. These ‘beauty pageants’ provide that exposure and opportunity to become a trophy wife or a job as a spokesperson for a business.

      The multinational corporation I worked for had many beautiful women working in Marketing who were studying for their Bachelors degree in Marketing, so they weren’t employed in the first place for their marketing skills and experience.

      This is how our society works.
