Another great example of something changing with culture, and in that case, technology.

Playboy was known for their decent writing and such. Their nudity was just a gimmick to get people to buy the magazine. With the internet, where you can get damn near anything you want in regards to pornography, it took much of the appeal away from Playboy's "gimmick" and so they decided to focus on other areas.

this next wave of political correctness brought to you by Progressives.

Aren't the far right conservatives the ones who want their women covered?

They've just stopped the only thing that people watched for.


Seriously though, that's probably the real reason why their phasing it out. The chance of seeing females in skimpy swimsuits probably just doesn't draw the same amount of audience as it once did... Its not like back in the mid 90's before everyone had the internet, when a really crappy film could become a box-office hit, simply because their was a 3 second topless scene of some hot actress.

Their probably just trying to appeal to a different type of audience, for the purpose of remaining relevant.

no worries women are digging their own graves with this metoo don't look at me nonsense.. Once men are so used to not looking at you we will quickly realize just how little value you have left in society besides to procreate and soon enough we won't need your body for that either..


*looks around*


Men find women attractive and along with that comes sexual attraction.


Yes, but not harassment, unless you're tacitly advocating that's ok because men, or something.


Liberals and their followers need to be eradicated from earth they're just too stupid and emotional..


Who's emotional, now?

Then why are you even on ATS? This is as "unreal" as you can get. Arguing with strangers you'll likely never meet.


Excellent question. I often ask myself the same thing. The conversations on this site used to be interesting and real.

Now...not so much.



So people who enjoy looking at the human body are perverted losers unless they only look at those physically in front of them?


That's not what I said. I said gawking at a tv like a perverted loser. It's called an analogy.



Pretty sure I couldn't find a single person who hasn't watched porn at some point....buncha perverted losers!!!!


I'm sure.

“I’ve talked to tons of young people who’ve said to me, ‘I’d love to be a part of that program, but I don’t want to parade around in a swimsuit,’” Gretchen Carlson, a former Fox News anchor who is now the organization’s chairwoman, said in an interview. “I get it.”

Liberals, "leftists", "rightists", conservatives and Christians have nothing to do with it. It's what the potential contestants don't want to do on the program. They want to be judged based on their talents.

Everyone knows it's what's inside that counts. Like their kidneys, liver and heart. Show me those.

What does this have to do with progressives?


Oh sweety... you are so clueless that it's sad sometimes.

You may want to read up on political correctness.



It has more to do with changing cultural norms with the newer generations, than political correctness.

These pageants are focused on young woman, who are coming from the millennial generation.


Changing cultural norms... for the worse.

This used to be a simple pageant... the goal of which was that the prettiest girl won.

If you honestly think that there is something wrong with someone appreciating the human body then your programming is complete.

But "gasp" women competing only on the merits of their physical attributes?

Now we can't have that. After all, the others don't get participation trophys, do they? Ugly girls can't get in? THAT'S not inclusive at all!!!!!

What you are missing is that the Progressive movement cannot withstand individualism. Or, god forbid, exceptionalism.

No... we all need to be little grey boxes with an American Hyphen Whatever stamped on it, to be put in the correct box so that we are easier to control.

This is just a part of it.

I would spend more time on the subject with you, but I have read your posts over the years and have concluded that any attempt to show you an alternate viewpoint from your own would be, in essence, polishing a turd.

So on that note put on your Captain Sophism cape, make sure CNN is on the other monitor, hunker down and fight the good fight!

Weird... I had thought in your far left world that conservatives and Muslims don't get along.

Keep up, sparky!
