The End of Beauty Pageants

The Orange County Register reports:
A Chapman University senior became the first transgender contestant in the university’s annual all-woman pageant Wednesday night, winning the title of Miss Congeniality. 
Addie Vincent, 21, faced off against 15 other competitors for the title of Miss Delta Queen, a competition organized by the university’s Greek system. The pageant’s winner was Alexandria Kessinger. 
“Tonight was so awesome,” Vincent said after the pageant. “The fact that I was just able to compete was so amazing on its own.”
This erodes the basic foundation of a beauty pageant, which is a contest involving the rating of women's beauty and poise. If this becomes the norm, it will be the end of beauty pageants.
