The Evolution of Miss AmericaPosted: October 12, 2015
Using historical data on both the pageant winners and the average American woman, we were able to estimate that the only decades during which Miss America fell into the same range as the average U.S. woman were the 1940s and 1950s.
Hmmm — dievca would have been o.k. in the 1950’s as a candidate, but she would never make it now….too bad, but not a worry. It is a worry for young girls who see an ideal which is challenging and UNHEALTHY to achieve.
(Actually, dievca is more creeped out by the smile shapes…from the Year 2000 on…the pageant winner’s mouths are the same shape and the teeth are the same color. A little “Stepford-ish”.)

dievca thinks she might be onto something.
