We have some new beauty pageant winners to announce, perhaps you’ve heard?

I want to be very clear that I’m going to do my best in this article to be respectful and fair to the winners of these contests, while also striving to simply follow common sense and promote true health and wellness.

So I’ll just say it upfront: I do not think obesity is healthy or should be celebrated.  Sorry, promoting obesity is not loving or “kind”.

I also don’t believe encouraging and rewarding people who change the gender/sex that God gave them is healthy or should be encouraged at scale.

Speaking of “at scale”, let’s go to Alabama where Sara Milliken was recently crowned the Alabama winner of the National American Miss pageant.

Here’s Miss Milliken:

Of course….we need to promote inclusivity, which means all body sizes!

Brenden Dilley of the Dilley Meme Team wrote: “Miss Alabama is the size of a Buick”:

Note, those are Brenden’s words, not mine.

If you have issues with comparing Miss Milliken to a Buick, take that up with Brenden, don’t bring it to me.

It should be noted that this is not Miss America, this is the National American Miss pageant, which is a separate and distinct competition.

National American Miss (NAM) is a separate organization from Miss America. While both are beauty pageants, they differ in their focus and criteria. National American Miss is known for teaching girls life skills, and it is not the same as Miss America, which is a scholarship-based organization, nor is it related to Miss USA or Miss Universe.

I found this next one right on point:

Definitely square, just not sure it was fair.

Leave it to the satire account of “Dr. Jebra Faushay” to have the funniest Tweet I’ve seen:

But it’s not really a laughing matter.

As I said at the top of the article, I don’t think it’s a funny topic or anything that should be promoted as healthy.

I think Matt Walsh is spot on with this analysis:

It’s also not just my opinion….let’s go to an expert, shall we?

Below is a Tweet from Leilani Dowding who won Miss Great Britain in 1998 and represented the U.K. in Miss Universe in 1998.

She posted this stunning tweet below mocking Miss Alabama as an “aspirational role model” and sarcastically pointing out that in her mid-40s now she is clearly an “unhealthy antivaxxer and granny killer”.

Oh my, the sarcasm is so thick you can cut it with a knife!

She goes on to say it’s a good thing she won in 1998 because she’d “have to have a dick or be 3x the size to have a shot now”.

Once again, her words not mine, but as a former Miss Universe contestant, perhaps she has some standing for her opinion?

But then we move from Miss Alabama to Miss Maryland who… a man — at least according to some on Twitter.

Is a man or was a man?

Or still is a man?

Or is a transvestite?

Or is a transgender woman?

I think the correct term here is transgender woman?

I’m sorry I can’t keep up with all of it.

Take a look:

Growing up, I never heard the term “transgender”.

Now of course it’s everywhere.

I did occasionally hear about transvestites.

Does that still exist?

Or did that go away so we could focus on transgender?

Help!  It’s all so confusing!

Go ahead and take a look at this video to see your new winner:

Here’s what Fox News reported:

A transgender woman crowned Miss Maryland expressed joy at the celebration of women “no matter their gender.”

Transgender contestant Bailey Anne Kennedy won Miss Maryland USA this past Saturday. According to the official Miss Maryland account’s post on Instagram, Kennedy’s victory marked multiple firsts, the first transgender contestant, the first Asian American contestant, the first to win the crown at age 31, the first married contestant to win and the first military officer’s spouse to win the state-level competition in 67 years.

In an interview shared in the same post, Kennedy said the victory on the first day of Pride Month “symbolizes everything” because the Miss Universe Organization “has now celebrated ‘woman’ universally, no matter their age, no matter their gender or their marital status.”

“As a military spouse and as a proud trans woman, I hope to display this in a positive light and as an immigrant myself – the immigrant tenacity, I hope to showcase that to people, and hopefully inspire somebody along the way,” Kennedy added.

When speaking with DC News Now, Kennedy said the moment of victory was like “a whirlwind, because I knew it was bigger than me, Cory. I know that it’s gonna mean a lot for all the LGBT kids out there who might have felt different and might feel like they don’t belong in a box, like me growing up, so I hope that my win will be a delicious invitation for them to be themselves.”

So there you go, Fox News says it’s a “transgender woman” so that’s the term we will use.

I still don’t think either situation is healthy nor do I believe either should be promoted or applauded or rewarded.

So there’s a reason I put “Miss” in quotes in the title of this article….because I actually believe it’s so appropriate here.

While the term ostensibly means Miss as in the title for a young woman, I think it more aptly means a “Swing and a Miss” here.  Twice.

Congratulations on the crowns….
