RE: Miss Universe 2019
You knew this was going down hill a few years ago when they eliminated the bathing suit competition.

Its gone down hill ever since Trump sold the pageant.

Some of us are old enough to remember when standards were a little different.

Are they no longer part of the United States? If they're so special how about we just stop defending them from the Russians. How about Guam. Was there a Mrs Guam? Nope. Pacific Islands get no love for some reason. This has to stop.

Aloha!

The US couldn't afford to make them a full state. We are already $23 trillion in debt and PR makes California look fiscally responsible.

This contest had swimsuits, I think it's Miss America that got rid of the swimsuits.

But your 2nd point stands, way too much talking. They should get rid of all the questions and do a short-order breakfast competition instead. Bitch, get the fuck outta here with saving the planet from global warming, I wanna know who can warm up some eggs fast!

As mentioned here, they should get rid of these saving the world, global warming type of questions. These women are gonna be her setters. Get flown in private jets and all that. Their carbon footprint will be huge. They won't give up the jet set life. Not for many years.

Miss Universe's First Openly Gay Contestant Came Out Days Ago: 'I Just Started a New Chapter

[Image: 73414951_2668354059947351_2047-770x433.j...RA1.Uq.G6Z]

[Image: MISS_MYANMAR_SPEAKS_UP_FOR_ACCEPTANCE_WB...86x600.png]

Quote:When Swe Zin Htet takes the stage as the reigning Miss Myanmar in the Miss Universe competition on Sunday, she will be thinking of the LGBTQ community back in her country, also known as Burma, where homosexuality remains a crime.

Days ago, Htet came out as a lesbian and became the first openly gay Miss Universe pageant contestant. It’s a revelation the 21-year-old tells PEOPLE she timed to coincide with stepping into spotlight of the international pageant.

“I have that platform that, if I say that I’m a lesbian, it will have a big impact on the LGBTQ community back in Burma,” she says through a translator from Atlanta, where Miss Universe will be held Sunday at Tyler Perry Studios following a preliminary competition this week to determine the 20 semi-finalists.

“The difficult thing is that in Burma, LGBTQ people are not accepted,” Htet says, “they are looked down on by other people and are being discriminated against.”

Nicknamed “Superman” by her fans, Htet hopes to help change anti-LGBTQ attitudes both through her very public coming out and future advocacy, made stronger with her Miss Universe fame.

“It’s like I just started a new chapter in life,” she says.

Htet, who is also a singer and actress, first came out publicly on the beauty blog Missology on Nov. 29.

Htet remembers first feeling same sex-attraction when she was growing up, around 15 or 16. Being okay with it, even to herself, was “kind of difficult,” she says, “but after a period of time I felt I was a lesbian and kind of accepted it.”

It was this self-acceptance that led Htet to open up to her parents about five years ago. “At first, they were mad. They didn’t accept me,” she recalls. “But later, when they found out more about the LGBTQ community, they started to accept me.”


While those close to Htet knew she loved women — and she has been in a three-year relationship with the famous Burmese singer Gae Gae, whom she met at a party — she says she otherwise kept it a secret.

“Not a lot of people know about it,” she tells PEOPLE.

She’s changing that. While there is no mention of LGBTQ rights on her bio on the Miss Universe website — and she chose the issue of preventing child abuse as the cause for which she advocates — she posted a gay pride flag on her Instagram on Nov. 29, the same day she came out.

In the short time she’s been out, Htet has been getting support for her sexual orientation: from fellow Miss Universe contestants, pageant organizers, the LGTBQ community in Burma and “also all over the world,” she says. “And I’m very happy about that.”

“We are honored to give a platform to strong, inspirational women like Miss Universe Myanmar, who are brave enough to share their unique stories with the world,” Paula Shugart, president of The Miss Universe Organization, tells PEOPLE in an email. “Miss Universe will always champion women to be proud of who they are.”

There is no legal same-sex marriage in Myanmar and, according to a Myanmar Times review of LGBTQ rights in 2019, someone engaging in same-sex relations “carries sentences ranging from 10 years to life.”

“Despite the fact the law is not used in practice,” according to the publication, “its existence casts a long shadow over LGBT people across Myanmar.”


Still, there has been more freedom of expression for LGBTQ people in recent years, with public events, parties and advocacy “making some headway against the ‘old ways,’ ” the Myanmar Times reported.

It is this growing support Htet feels at home that gave her the courage to speak publicly last week: that all should have the freedom to follow their hearts.

“Love is the basic thing,” she says, adding: “It’s more about loving each another person, no matter who that person is. It’s coming from the heart.”

I think they got bigger fish to fry than LGBTQ rights in Burma. 1. Civil war going on for 70 years. 2. Pythons 3. Malaria 4. Is it Myanmar or Burma?

Maybe get to work fixing those problems then worry about the seven gay people that live there.

RE: Miss Universe 2019
I remember an old interview from the late 80s/early 90s about all of the Miss USA winners from Texas (watched it on YT but can't find it again). The woman training the contestants said they focus on confidence and projecting femininity. Now, they screech insults at Trump and the questions are about climate change.

I still laugh when seeing that - exacerbated in Helsinki when there is a ton of beautiful girls - possible the most beautiful native women aside from Norway IN THE WORLD:

[Image: 604213_6a3bfd_large.jpg]
(Especially numbers 3 to 5 are 8-9s easily.) The winning girl could have won a Miss Prehistoric beauty pageant.

Beauty pageants were usually easy lays for rich men and a few girls in the 7-8 - occasional 9 range who would want to meet a wealthy husband. The truly beautiful 9s were generally embarrassed about participating. Sometimes they found out that the winning girls banged the most judges and that is why she won.

But when they pick agenda-driven girls, then even the remaining sense of it is over.
