Re: Miss universe pageants. As soon as women stop participating in these things, they will cease to exist. These are all highly educated successful women. They compete because they want to, nobody is controlling them, nobody is forcing them to. This is completely controlled by the women who participate. If no women wanted to participate, they would not be a thing anymore. As far as the little girls in pageants? I blame that on the mothers of those little girls for doing that to them.
