"It's not something that we endorse, nor is it something that we suggest," Lewis continued. "But when we meet with the title-holder, when she's crowned Miss California, we put to her a litany of questions about how she feels about herself, what she feels she needs to work on, what she may need to change, what is good, what is not good. We want to put her in the best possible confidence in order to present herself in the best possible light on a national stage."
First, why does Miss California need fake breasts to be confident? Second, what type of message are they sending to people across the United States (let alone the world) about beauty? And why do having implants help her chances of winning the crown?
So, let's recap what the pageant organization is telling us through their actions: In order to be the beautiful and in the running to actually win one of these pageants you need to change yourself and get plastic surgery.
I am sure that plenty of these beauty queens have had work done on them, but not paid for by the pageant organization. This absolutely disgusts me. No wonder 17 year old girls are getting breast implants. Is anybody else disgusted by this?
