Wait, so a country that’s been intensely partitioned for months away can’t come to an agreement on the new Miss USA? Reverberates about right.
Miss District of Colombia, AKA Kara McCullough, won the coveted Miss USA 2017 treetop Sunday night and was immediately responded with … mixed reviews.
A government chemist and wife of color, people were originally really excited to see her participate and make it into the top 10.
The clapback arrived after her Q& A segments, where she was asked about feminism and healthcare no easy task to talk about in under 30 seconds, and two of the most divisive topics du jour. When asked if she identified as a feminist, she said this 😛 TAGEND
So, Miss D.C. isn’t a feminist … she’s an equalist . And she equates feminism with “hating boys, ” one of the most prevalent and untrue stereotypes of feminism as a whole.
And on healthcare, we get 😛 TAGEND
Healthcare isn’t a privilege but a privilege for Miss D.C ., and is not simply that, but to have healthcare you have to have a job.
Surely she was aiming for some sort of inspirational “we need more chores so everyone has healthcare! ” but unfortunately, that’s not quite how it came off.
A lot of people were not happy about her reacts: boiled down they amount to “feminism is about hating boys, ” and “affordable healthcare is a privilege , not a privilege, ” the first being untrue and the second largest being unpopular .
We were rooting for you !!
A lot of people were left cross-examine how the justices decided if reacts were … good.
On the other hand, reactionaries and people who agreed with Miss D.C.’s statements revelled that she wasn’t afraid to articulate her opinion, even if it was an unpopular one, on their own nationals stage.
Some even announced out feminists for talking down to Miss D.C..
And to think, if only she’d been asked about the pros and cons of social media like Miss New Jersey, this all could’ve been avoided.
