So Carrie Prejean, the controversial Miss California USA (not for long?) once posed for nude photos. Is anyone out there surprised? Let’s face it, these days, there are LOTS of girls sending nude photos of themselves out over the internet. One of them is even being prosecuted for distribution of child pornography – for sending out photos of herself!
The real problem here is not posing topless, not being anti-gay, not even Carrie Prejean herself, but the fact that our daughters are being told – through beauty pageants like Miss USA, that pretty is all that matters. You can be a homophobe, you can be borderline incapable of literate speech, you can be stupid enough to do something that has the potential to ruin your life’s dream…but if you’re pretty: here’s a crown, here’s some money, here you are being put out there as a role model to girls across the country.
