Saudi Arabian "Beauty" Pageant

No bikinis in this one...

"'The idea of the pageant is to measure the contestants' commitment to Islamic morals... It's an alternative to the calls for decadence in the other beauty contests that only take into account a woman's body and looks,' said pageant founder Khadra al-Mubarak.

'The winner won't necessarily be pretty,' she added. 'We care about the beauty of the soul and the morals.'"


You care about craven obedience to a misogynist cult that treats dissent with violence and is nothing more than a dark-ages, testosterone-fueled hate parade with modern weapons and a stranglehold on the world's fuel supply.

Remember the bumper sticker, everyone...Well-behaved women seldom make history. Women like Irshad Manji are more my type, even if they are religious.
