Miss Universe Was Possibly The Most Woke Ever!

You know, the show you no longer bother with because it no longer makes any sense

50 Shades of Gray: Was this really the most woke Miss Universe Pageant?

It was designed as a post-#MeToo pageant, from its all-inclusiveness to its message of body positivity—delivered by plus-size model, and one of the three pageant hosts, Ashley Graham.

But the main host was good old Steve Harvey—bumbling, funny, politically incorrect, and decidedly unwoke. His opening spiel alone roasted the inordinate spiciness of Thai food many, many times. When he asked Miss Canada a question, and she mentioned that she was both a model and engineer, Harvey quipped (and I loosely quote), “Engineering isn’t fun, just be a model and travel around the world and wear nice clothes.” But we expected as much from the host—and his presence was offset by the selection committee (I didn’t hear the word “judges,” though ostensibly that’s what they were)—an all-woman panel composed of ex-beauty queens turned philanthropists, renowned designers, scientists turned beauty queens turned Media CEOs. It seemed like it was a good time to be a woman in a pageant; the only misogyny came in the form of the almost benign titoness of Harvey. Of course, we couldn’t escape a few racist turns from Miss America— this being the Trump era after all—as she poked fun at Miss Vietnam and Miss Cambodia’s lack of English proficiency. It seemed a kind of poetic justice then when Miss America made it only to the top twenty, and Miss Vietnam made it to the top 5.

Of course there had to be some Trump Derangement Syndrome included, and some men hating. Plus, women who push body positivity, otherwise known as telling women it is OK to be overweight and out of shape, despite all the health issues this causes.

As much as I rooted for Catriona Gray, the other candidate I had set my sights on was Angela Ponce, who I missed in the montage introducing the beauty queens—and though I’d been hawkishly watching the segment, I did not see a Miss Spain perhaps that one moment I blinked.

Yeah, Ponce is a dude

(Deadline) On Sunday night, the Miss Universe pageant crowned Catriona Gray from the Philippines as the winner, but another winner of the evening was Spain’s Angela Ponce, who made history as the pageant’s first transgender contestant.

“What an honor and pride to be part of the history of @missuniverse,” she wrote in Spanish. “This is for you, for those who have no visibility, no voice, because we all deserve a world of respect, inclusion and freedom. And today I am here, proudly representing my nation, all women and human rights.”

Ponce did not make the final round of 20, but she claimed another victory with representation and inclusivity.

She took a spot from a real biological woman. Congrats, nutters: you are mainstreaming mental illness.

    There are 6 billion people on the planet. How many of them do you think really get “representation and inclusivity”? For most of the human race, “human rights” means not getting chopped up by your neighbor with a machete or shot in the back of the head by your mayor who wants your daughter as a sex slave.
