So this young lady who has A grades in maths, physics, chemistry and biology at A-level and an A in further maths at AS-level. She has 10 A* GCSEs and is studying for a natural sciences course at Kings College, Cambridge is now a finalist in the Miss Universe competition. And there are zillions of complaints about how she is demeaning herself. Is she? No, she is not.
I was having a quiet chuckle about it. See my previous photo essay on beauty parades and why I love them. So go for it, young lady, be proud of what you are, and you do not have anything to defend to those cohorts of middle class incoherent morality who moan about women on beauty parades but do not mind having weird ideas about beauty. A thing of beauty is a joy forever.
