I just finished with the swim suit portion of miss America. It is awkwardly bizarre to watch 20 women just walk in heals and tiny bikinis.
Why don’t they just call it what it is… The “I really want to see you naked but this is prime time so let’s put you in as few clothes as possible and call it fitness wear so no one gets bent out of shape for objectifying and sexualizing the woman form” portion of the competition.
Swimsuits often cover more skin than underwear. Why do we count underwear as inappropriate and something that be seen but then swim suits are fine.
