    Meghan is not about "me too", she is all about "me only".

    The women compete in these pageants because they want to. They do not feel objectified but rather empowered. If the concept of beauty pageants upsets you, you need to do some self-reflection and acknowledge your own insecurities and work to overcome them. Also, contrary to what Joy said there are plenty of male pageants: Mr. World, Mr. International, and Mr. Global to name a few (All have a swimsuit portion). They just don't have the traction of female pageants.

    “I don’t think women should be able to sell their sexuality”, said no one. Beauty creates an advantage that people use to exploit primal behaviors. The advantage comes when beauty beats talent.
    Look at the singers of the past and look at them now.

    The bikini portion isn’t all about “objectifying women” like people make it out to this portion shows confidence it takes a tremendous amount of confidence to walk across a stage in front of not only the people in the audience but the tons of people who will be watching from home I personally think that this is a wonderful event to have because Ms America is supposed to be someone who is an intelligent and powerful young woman but with that comes confidence and I think this event shows it

    It's a beauty pageant. Women work their butts off for a fit body and should be able to flaunt it if they sign up for it. No one ever forced a female to compete. But with fat acceptance and PC culture I can't say I'm surprised.

    Miss America actually does have a segment where contestants wear something that represents their state. It's just not shown on TV and I agree that it should be. It's called the "Show Me Your Shoes" parade and it's very cool!

    These liberal fascist women should leave things. Men watch these kind of shows, leave men in peace and let them enjoy a few things, the feminist women are trying to destroy all things that are guys things. Women can have their little groups, but the world would stop spinning if men want a all men group.

    Women trying to destroy the Miss America pageant. The pageant was designed for men, but women also watched it, and together they would pick their favourite. Now these liberal women(wacko chairlady) want to make it into a fat, big, short, ugly, transgender, contest . Maybe you can appeal to the alphabet soup community, which is less then 2 percent, see if this is a rating hit!!

    23 judges that want to get rid of their new chief, and 29 that support her!! I guess there must be at least 29 female fudges, I mean judges. There is no way in the world, that most men would agree with this concept. Look what happened to the poor Boy Scouts, do you think that was a mans/boys choice???

      It was 22 of her team that want her gone, but 29 former miss Americas are backing her. Just shows that 29 former miss americas have looks but no intelligence.

    All these woman are making the pageant a show where only transgenders and gays will watch, and will soon be included in the pageant. Listening to these woman talking what a beauty contest should be, oh my god, men are the ones who watch, and us men don't want to see a bunch of ugly plus size women!!!

      It's the same as the transgenders calling themselves a lion, just as they don't call it a beauty contest anymore, it is still a Beauty contest, and has been every since it started. But if they keep going(feminist women), it will just be a joke, and will not be watched by men, and also a lot women also like to watch good looking women, not transgenders, fat, or ugly. No ratings, no show.

      All I know is most liberals want everyone to be equal. Which in my mind is a joke, many things cannot be equal.
      But I sure agree with you on; like to see sexy, good looking women, and also like the swim suit event. I don't think they judge them on intelligence, I know I don't. Lol

  • Carl Watson

    We can say we are all inclusive and and me too but at the end of the day its about a beauty contest and people willing to pay to see be beautiful women. Nobody is going to pay or tune in to see a plus miss america contest. It just facts. Instead of saying every is beautiful lets make it about health. We are really distorting reality in america these days saying everyone is a winner and equal. The people that work harder are always better then the people that dont. There will always be some privilaged that get ahead but lets teach people to work harder. We see beauty contest for smart athletic well rounded womenthat work hard on there mind and bodys. We have beauty contest like miss america and we have eating competitions for the plus size, stay in your lane

    Am I actually in agreement with Meghan? WTF! I like what she said about wanting to see more body diversity in the competition to add to that I would like to see women with disabilities and Transwoman also, of course, more women of color. This is a pageant called Miss America so shouldn't the contestants look like the melting pot that we claim America is?

      Only a lamebrain woman would come with your answer, next your type of moron will also have gays and transgenders in there. Oppps, you are already saying put the transgenders in there, you are a wacko, and a shinning example of dumb and dumber.

    To walk on the stage in a bathing suit is nothing but exploiting these women. It's not about being confident to wear a bikini at the beach, it's about wearing one so your body is compared to other women. It's demeaning. You can still have a beauty pageant and not have bathing suits. Also, if you want to do as Meghan said and just be more inclusive, then how can you judge the plus sized women vs the model sized women when you are literally grading their bodies? You can't.

    The PURPOSE for these pageants is that you SHOULD BE GORGEOUS AND SMART. Ignorant Leftists who feel ugly trying to fugly-up the competition. It's about the candidates, NOT YOU and YOUR LOW SELF-ESTEEM, JOY BEHAR.

  • N Mil
    N Mil 3 months ago

    I do remember one year the contestants wore costumes that represented their state. Let them keep the swimsuit round. These women are proud of their bodies so let them flaunt it. But I disagree with Megan about seeing plus size women. Plus size women are beautiful but let's get real. This is not a sympathy competition. If people feel bad about their own size when watching gorgeous women then they have issues.

    Plus size girls...the point of all of this is to work hard to get the miss America award the miss America pageant is meant to be appealing not looking at woman who are seen on the streets everyday these woman are both mentally and physically built and worked hard to get in the pageant it’s supposed to show woman you barley see on the street everyday and are being every mans dream girl and a role model for other girls to aim for as well as represent the USA all the combinations of smart great personality beautiful and fit if your offended that these girls actually look good and are threatened either turn the channel or get a gym membership or use these woman as role models and something to aim towards

    There is a first time for everything and I actually agree with meghan on this one! I did a vlog on my youtube channel about it a few weeks ago. Miss America embodies everything and being beautiful comes in many shapes, sizes and colors...its all about being comfortable in your own skin. Why did they remove the bikini contest instead of just having women compete of all shapes and sizes because that is beautiful too. Be proud of your body and be healthy.. That is most important!

    • Ojogbane Amedu
      Ojogbane Amedu 11 days ago

      Britt Johnson “have women of all shapes and sizes” then you go on and say “be proud of your body and be healthy”. I’m sorry but not every shape and size is healthy, that’s a fact.

    • Doug Lee
      Doug Lee 3 months ago +1

      Easy for you to say, because you are beautiful!! But beauty mostly comes with certain requirements, the women on there lately look more like tall, long haired model types. The reason is this is what it has evolved to, but if you want to put short, fat, transgender people in there, then maybe you should just start a circus!

    The women are in the Miss America pageant because they won their individual state contests. So, it would only be more diverse (ie. plus size females as one of them said) if the contestant won at the state level.

  • Elizabeth Anders

    As a woman, I have no problems with the swimsuit competition at all. The swimsuit competition represented physical fitness; how fit the contestants are. I find nothing degrading about it. The Miss America PAGEANT will never be the same again. It is a PAGEANT...NOT a COMPETITION.

  • Ashley Brock

    Why didn't they talk about the fact that the women themselves, 29 I think they said, are standing behind this decision? Clearly some of the women competing are on board with ditching it. Gretchen was a contestant herself at one point. It seems like they're more concerned with how this decision affects them/the audience than whether or not it's a good or bad thing for the people actually in the contest.
