The War on Beauty

Most men who watched the annual Miss America pageant did
not tune in to evaluate the intellectual content of the contestants, but
because the girls were drop dead gorgeous, unctuously curved in all the right
places, but unfortunately and as a rule inarticulate and banal in their dreams
and aspirations. It usually had something to do with public service or helping
mankind or was a fillip of political virtue signaling.
This is to be no more. Miss America will no longer be a parade of faultless
eye candy. On June 5th, the head of the pageant signaled her
so-called virtue.
The Miss America Organization
has announced an end to the swimsuit portion of its competition and the
practice of judging contestants specifically on their outward appearance.  Breitbart
reported:
Gretchen Carlson,
who was crowned Miss America in 1989, made the announcement of the new
direction on Tuesday’s broadcast of Good Morning America, CNBC reported.
Branding the
pageant “Miss America 2.0,” Carlson said, “We’re not going to judge you on your appearance
because we are interested in what makes you you.”
Carlson, the latest
head of the pageant’s board of directors, added that many contestants expressed
criticism of the swimsuit and evening gown portion of the pageant in this day
of a heightened awareness of sexual harassment.
Which means having to endure listening to people
verbally signaling their “social justice.” This had nothing to do with Islam,
although Carlson’s announcement was preceded by Sadiq Khan’s decree that
swimsuits will no longer be advertised on public transportation. The
Daily Caller
reported, June 13th the London mayor has proclaimed
it is haram to look beach worthy.
Khan, London’s first Muslim
mayor, announced Monday that “body shaming” advertisements will no longer be
allowed in London’s public transport. No more sexy advertising that proclaims that
being drop dead gorgeous in a bikini is halal.
Sadiq Khan,
London’s first Muslim mayor, announced Monday that “body shaming”
advertisements will no longer be allowed in London’s public transport.
“As the
father of two teenage girls, I am extremely concerned about this kind of
advertising which can demean people, particularly women, and make them ashamed
of their bodies. It is high time it came to an end,” Khan said.
The mayor added, “Nobody should feel pressurised, while they travel
on the Tube or bus, into unrealistic expectations surrounding their bodies and
I want to send a clear message to the advertising industry about this.”
Allure? Or revulsion?
There was a petition with over 70,000
on Change.org opposing an advertisement with women in a bikini
that asked “are you beach body ready?” The petition said, “Protein World is
directly targeting individuals, aiming to make them feel physically inferior to
the unrealistic body image of the bronzed model, in order to sell their
product.”
Recently, advertisements featuring bikini-clad models in
the British city of Birmingham were spray painted over. Birmingham has a high Muslim population.
Of course, no one will ever know if Muslim women who frequent beaches
in “burkinis” have beach ready
figures.
In Islam, displaying an attractive figure – or uncovered wrist or
ankle – is haram, and
an invitation to rape. It is “exposed
meat
” for Muslim men.
                                                                                                                                                
Are these
Sufi  Muslims raring to go the beach to drool over “exposed
meat”?
In
the 17th and 18th centuries the ideal feminine profile
tended to be chunky (as can be seen in many artworks), as opposed to todays’ well-proportioned
svelteness.
Mythology? Or a Social Construct?
No
discussion of feminine beauty would be complete without academia’s two cent s worth.  Campus Reform reported on June
6th about a new sophomore course at the Hobart
and William Smith Colleges in upstate New York:
White Mythologies:
Objectivity, Meritocracy, and Other Social Constructions
” is a
sophomore-level course taught by Kendralin
Freeman
and Jason
Rodriguez
, who are sociology and anthropology professors, respectively.
   “This course explores the
history and ongoing manifestations of ‘white mythologies’—long-standing, often
implicit views about the place of White, male, Euro-American subjects as the
norm,” explains the course
description
, which adds that students will also “explore how systematic
logics that position ‘the West’ and ‘whiteness’ as the ideal manifest through
such social constructions as objectivity, meritocracy, and race.”
Leave
it to academia and numerous intellectuals to gum up the concept in men’s minds
in the name of “social justice.”  Beauty
through the ages has usually –but not entirely – been defined by white males, from
art to literature to architecture to the feminine form. Beauty in
academia, one supposes, is now a “white mythology” and a “social construct.” Or
perhaps a Marxist “deconstruction.” Leave it to academia and numerous intellectuals
to gum up the concept in men’s minds, bequeathing  them the hair shirt of subjectivity and the
endless nattering of the MSM..
