Should we stop pageants?

Most recently, Miss World , 1st runner up is from the Philippines, Gwendoline Rhuias. The Philippines has been put on the map when it comes to pageants within the last 2 years. We have Shamcey Supsup Miss Universe 3rd Runner Up, Venus Raj, Miss Universe 2010 1st Runner Up. It is an honour to be recognize especially coming from a third world country.  But the question is should we continue with this?  I don't know the answer to this and not trying to start a movement to stop it either. It is one of those, things that make you go hmmm???

This is my own beauty pageant - and the winner is Irysh. Most recently Irsyh came in FIRST amongst her class in Math beating the older kids? I was blown away by this as I recall how she was when I first met her. 

2010 - she barely spoke a word nor even smile

Next visit - she was a little comfortable with me

Here she is .. What a pose! She is ready to be the next Miss World !

Should we still continue with pageants?? What type of pageants should we have? Would people watch it if we have pageants of girls around the world who made significant transformation??

Thank you for stopping by !

Yes! It is time to begin recognizing children ( and people) for the things that matter rather than only beauty.
