we are pageant

Raven Beauty Pageant

This evening, we held a raven beauty pageant. Being unable to determine even a single raven as less glorious than the others, we humbly announced they all won.

We awarded each participant (including the stray owl in a hastily crafted raven costume) a crown made of tiny bones and several bags of seed and berries.

  • Baekhyun: Taehyung, are your shoes too tight? Is the wig too heavy?
  • Yixing: What are you doing?
  • Baekhyun: Creating a beauty queen. Show your other step dad what I taught you.
  • Yixing: Are you entering him into a beauty pageant?
  • Baekhyun: Of course I am. It's family tradition.
  • Yixing: But he's too tall and his voice is too deep. What if he doesn't want to do it? Did you ask Kyungsoo?
  • Baekhyun: That's why we do teen pageants. And he works those heels just like his mama. Also Kyungsoo politely declined my offer.....by telling me where I can shove my can of hair spray.
  • Yixing: Baekhyun....
  • Baekhyun: It's going to work look at my baby look at him.
  • Taehyung: *Getting his face covered in barbecue sauce while looking like Trixie Mattel*

how people can deny misogyny exists in first world countries when we have fucking beauty pageants is beyond me

like the existence of beauty pageants should be a pretty big indicator that our society does not see women as human beings.

another big indicator should be that society thinks women are not capable of making our own healthcare decisions and other people think they have the right to demand that women raise children they don’t want to have

almost as if they think women are nothing but baby makers, sex receptacles, and mothers to raise children

almost as if they think we are to be judged on how we look and how much we use our bodies to serve men

people just think this is fair because they hate women so deeply they think women deserve and enjoy being treated like this.

Sometimes hatred, discrimination, and racism are apparent, sometimes it’s not evident. These people here were caught spewing hatred on video. You don’t want blacks in your fraternity? That’s perfectly fine. However, what I want the masses to understand is that when Blacks acknowledge that we are unwelcome somewhere and then create things for ourselves, it is not “racist” as some people love to refer to it. Racism is what you see in this video. Recently, there was controversy/criticism behind a “Miss Black Clarksville Pageant” here in middle TN, and people were wondering why we set ourselves apart. Why is it exclusive to Blacks? That’s racist. What if we had a “Miss White” pageant?

Well, the next time you find yourself wondering why there are black fraternities and sororities, historically black colleges & universities, black churches, black pageants, community organizations specifically for African-Americans, etc., or even if you wonder why all the black kids sit together in the cafeteria, I want you to remember that things like this were started for two primary reasons: 1. We have unique customs, traditions, culture, and heritage associated with us as a race that is a minority population in this here nation. 2. Racism existed, and…pssstt..it still exists. Don’t believe me?.. just watch the video. Furthermore, we’re not that far removed from segregation, the Voting Rights Act, and many other civil rights struggles. It was only a few decades ago. We go where we make ourselves feel welcome. 👉 big thanks to @marco.specs for this articulate response repost 👈 #Selma50 #Selma #Racism #Racistkids #Blacklivesmatter #BGLO #SAE #SigmaAlphaEpsilon #UniversityofOklahoma #UO (at TAG EVERY NEWS OUTLET )

This is the original home of the [Romanis], Ods and Sadhs, the Gurjars, Ahirs and Khatris; here came Skylax, Alexander, Huen Tsang and Fa Hien. Here we saw past the pageant of Aryanism, Zoroastrianism, Hellenism, Buddhism, Islam, Sikhism. How did this land fare under each contact, under each cataclysm, under each fresh revolution in thought and deed? How in its blood and brain it received and integrated something of Greece, Persia, China and Tibet, Arabia, Egypt, Central and Western India? Knowing that, we would, also, understand why Buddhism and all it outwardly implied in wood and colour and stone and deed has not much survived in Panjabi life and letters, only, in part in Punjabi religion; and why Brahman ritualism has passed away while the Kshatriya philosophy, the Vedanta, has survived; why the spirit more than the word of Islam as it emerged from its Persian cradle, has appealed to the rural Panjab; why the Chinese and Bengali games of children, the Chinese pigtail, the Chinese magic, the Greek semi-circular head-gear, the Turkish words for daily food and utensils, Vikramadityan Rajput tales and customs, Buddhist folktales, and the lore of saints; and lovers from Persia and Arabia, have found a congenial home in the soil or become favourites with the natives; why again the cult of Krishna or Rama worship has not struck roots here ; why local saints have prospered ; why comparatively so few traces of the changing past have got preserved in life or literature.
