Important note: answering a complex question involving politics in 20 seconds is impressive.

Why can’t we just get rid of pageants altogether, they can become toxic in society.

K so my sister was watching this magic show thing on Netflix and the magician had attractive assistants, right? The announcer just could not get over that. It was like a 12 year old trapped in a 50 year old's body, it was hilarious.

Ironic, that Kathy griffin and trump are featured in the same episode. Based on their future exchanges of hate. Lol

Wasn’t this kind of pageant important early on though? I mean, of course it objectified women, but it also followed and normalized the female body, pushing more towards equality. I could be totally wrong, again, it’s run by men and the women are clearly being objectified, but it seems as though it was far more important at the time

Thumbs down for giving no warning we'd be exposed to such a hideous sight as Kathy Griffin. Revolting.

The Trivium masses need to ask themselves a couple of scientific questions and take a mathematical measurement. 1. What kind of esoteric pedigree is in your informational dog chow? 2. Did you clean your dog bowl? 3. Do you expect information pedigrees to eat kibble like the bible? I have to pick out the pedigree with sushi chopsticks and can't watch much television or do computing or radio. I can't move all pedigree, but this kibble is bad. Do you expect to eat "the Devil's" own pedigree? Let me tell about that. Clean out your bible bowl, Farfel. It's time for some chow. So before you move a "Relativity" or a "Principia" or a mathematical history or even a "Gun Digest" or a "Petit Albert" remember what kind of dog chow you have been digesting all those years..

12:05 why would there be a need for female-only scholarships? What's wrong with scholarships available to everyone ?
joseph kramer (24 days ago)
Action over words. That is why I appreciate you. Thank you for this.
Donald Trump is president, Kathy Griffin's career took a year off, and Miss America is now run by a former Fox News host. Ok maybe the last one doesn't seem surprising, but what if I told you it was a woman who almost immediately got rid of the swimsuit portion of the contest?

Beauty Pageants are not a bad thing, but fraudulent claims and misuse of money should not be tolerated Just use the money to actually fund womens scholarships, also the questions are not that difficult, just give a brief answer

she said 45 million dollars made available. Its a dumb way to say, we won't give out anywhere near 45 million, but we could. Which they can't and won't. But it is a white lie in order to look better.

I am curious... How many scholarship providers are there exclusively for men? And if there are none, are women less favored in by the providers for both genders?

They are acting like these women are forced into competing in these things. It's a fucking BEAUTY pagent, the whole point is right there in the name. Everyone knows that they are judging who is the hottest especially the women who compete in them. And the stupid sketch at the end, "only if men are held to same standards blar blar blar". Sure, that would make sense if you were talking about something that is required of everyone in the country, but you're not, you're talking about a beauty contest that these women know all about and want/CHOOSE to be in bexause they want too. There are male pagents where men choose to be objectified also, some people are into that. I think we have some much bigger things to address other than whether or not beauty pagents judge women on their beauty...Easily the fucking dumbest thing I have ever seen on this show.

I don`t understand the problem. If women want to participate in pageants why not. Are there no Mr America pageants? In most of Europe those exist. They are judged in bathing suits too. It`s only fair.

How to become bitcoin trader? Exactly like Bitcoin, multiple digital currencies exist in the marketplace. So if you prefer to buy a few other currencies which aren`t available on Indian Exchange than you can utilize Bittrex. All you have to do is locate an exchange that you favor. Cryptocurrency exchanges have a massive potential to modify peoples minds and opinions concerning cryptocurrencies generally speaking and their application in actual life. So even in the event the exchange is attacked, its still true that you have your money. Furthermore, the exchanges prepare each and every industry for Bitcoin expansion. Existing stock exchanges will also compete to be able to fulfill the users configuration requirements. Sooner or later later on, the prices will grow more equal, meeting somewhere in the middleyour profit is equivalent to the quantity of convergence. No matter how far it is from Kijun, it is likely to return and test that level at some point. The amount of bitcoin is perpetually changing. In the US, it is 1000 USD. Whats even better, seek the services of a seasoned lawyer or at least ask for an in depth consultation. So youve read the newspaper about the meteoric growth of crypto currencies including Bitcoin or Ripple. Then coming up with 1000s of exchange rates simply to go out and get groceries is nearly impossible. Many cities around the world provide a bitcoin ATM where you are able to trade cash for bitcoin. The cryptocurrency world isn`t efficient.
