Re: Orange Prize 2010
But a beauty pageant is rarely just a competition. It's a selection process for a job (that of Miss [somethingsomething]) that is open to the public, in the most extreme cases even broadcasted. The winner get a tiara, and a job. This job simply doesn't tolerate men, just like the role of James Bond doesn't tolerate women.
