Miss America Ends the Swimsuit Portion of Its Competition
The New York Times
...

“We are not going to judge you on your outward appearance,” Gretchen Carlson, a former Fox News anchor who is now the organization’s chairwoman, said on ABC’s “Good Morning America.” “We want more women to know that they are welcome in this organization.”

...
But of course merely getting rid of the swimsuit competition will not prevent judging from outward appearance. It might even be an entirely unconscious bias on the part of ideologically fully compliant judges.

The answer is clear ...

“We are not stupid,” Leonard Horn, the organization’s chief executive, said in 1993. “We are very sensitive to the fact that the swimsuit competition has always been our Achilles’ heel. The swimsuit competition has been controversial since the early 1920s, but it’s been retained because the majority of the people like it.”

FWIW, I was unaware that the Miss America competition still existed.

Seriously!

Shows you how relevant it all is in the grand scheme of things eh?

Maybe if they do a CGI hologram of Bert Parks it may come back....but I doubt it.

It still exists. It is just not particularly culturally relevant. Can anyone name the current Miss America?

Didn't think so. I certainly can't, nor do I care, swimsuits or no swimsuits.

Not to mention the dilution of the title

FWIW: Miss America is hotter now, but Miss USA will probably be hotter in 30 years.

Yes, there's so much more to the contestants than just outward appearance.



By the way, totally would, of course.

What are they going to do when they remove their "Achilles' Heel" and find that there's nothing left?
"If fighting is sure to result in victory, then you must fight! Sun Tzu said that, and I'd say he knows a little bit more about fighting than you do, pal, because he invented it, and then he perfected it so that no living man could best him in the ring of honor. Then, he used his fight money to buy two of every animal on earth, and then he herded them onto a boat, and then he beat the crap out of every single one. And from that day forward any time a bunch of animals are together in one place it's called a zoo! (Beat) Unless it's a farm!"

Judging by brains can be "problematic" too. :BigGrin3:

Good, ends phallocratic women objectivization. Remains the insufferable ableist discrimination, be it on privileged "looks" or "brains". Give every contestant at least a participation prize.

With predictable results.....

TV viewers prefer to watch giant men in spandex after Miss America pageant nixes bikini contest
Television viewership for the Miss America pageant has mysteriously dried up after the contest discontinued the part of the show where the young ladies scamper about in revealing swimsuits. Instead Americans watched football.

The 98th Miss America pageant faced-off with the first football game of the season in the primetime TV spot, with the giant, spandex-clad men clobbering the properly clothed, poem-reciting pageant contestants. It wasn’t even close.
Oh well....
...
In a bow to the #MeToo phenomenon, the Miss America Organization announced in June that it was eliminating the swimsuit portion of the event as well as tweaking the evening gown section – declaring that candidates "will no longer be judged on outward physical appearance."

Scholars will look back on this moment as one of the most predictable television-rating nosedives in recorded human history.
Yes a success, a flaming success...

I wonder if Miss America was up against a football game last year or not.

Viewership down 23% compared to last year.

ETA: apparently they went up against the same football game as last year too.
