Red tail - is this any more demeaning than expecting women to keep their heads covered while in public?

I know this whole thing is old fashioned and may demean women in some ways, but which one of us did not look at a beautiful girl and felt blessed?

Congratulations to her and I know Turkish women are beautiful. Turkish television shows such as Asi are actually popular in Somalia. I bet you didn't know that! There are quiet number of Somali super models but I have never seen them compete in the Miss Universe. Most Turks probably know Iman which became the first black model on Vogue and on Michael Jackson's "Remember the time" video playing Queen Cleopatra.

Eric Martin. I think women are far more than a decoration or something for men to look at. You want to degrade women to something whis is supposed to please men. Stone age mentality. I want women to be equal, have the same job opportunities. etc. If you are so fond of beauty, when do sports and become beautiful yourself instead of drowling at half nude women.

Red Tail doesn't like looking at pretty women. There are competitions for those occupations.

Beauty competitions feel really old fashioned and belongs to a time when women's main role was to be beautiful. Why not instead praise women who do really good things in the world like good authors, polititians, artists, company leaders. They are the heros of the world, not a 20 year old girl who has done nothing in life and just happened to be born with a pretty face.
