Bikinis a "no-no"
There may be legitimate reasons for banning bikinis at beauty pageants. Some critics, for example, have argued that these skimpy outfits place too much emphasis on the physical and that other qualities of the contestants get short shrift.
This year, however, at the Miss World pageant being held in Indonesia, bikinis have been banned from the swimsuit competition in deference to the sensitivities of the Muslim population.
That's what is being reported by FAUX News.
Assuming this is true, I'd like to suggest that the Miss World pageant move the contest to another country where Muslims are not in the majority and where it matters not whether their sensitivities are battered.
Perhaps Miss World could come to the United States. We need the money such a contest would engender and we like half-naked girls and we don't give a damn if a religious group's sensitivities
At least that's what I would like to think.
