I feel badly for the beautiful woman from my home state, Marissa. She’s 21. She sadly chose a question about gender equality in the final rounds of the Miss USA pageant last night. They still air this production every year, as well as Miss America on broadcast television. Millions of Americans flock to watch the peacocks. The question was about the gender gap in wages for 40% of Americans whose income is primarily from the mother. She was correct that education has a lot to do with it, however, I believe and hope that the question is asked, during this viral hate speech, about why we still encourage our young women to parade in their gowns and bathing suits for “merit”. The winner is showered with praise, flowers and diamonds and then lives the rest of her life.
