Miss Beautiful Morals

All hail!

The original He Man Women Hater Kingdom - where Mother's Day is just one of several alien concepts - just unveiled the veiled winner of Wahabi Arabia's 2010 “Queen of Beautiful Morals” crown.

Uh, Queen of beautiful what what?

"The idea of the pageant is to measure the contestants' commitment to m'Hammedist morals... It's an alternative to the calls for decadence in the other beauty contests that only take into account a woman's body and looks" 

Acing out 10 other finalist from over 400 girls in an admittedly unlustfully parade of their commitment to the genderapartheidic  Saudi family values (for now - nicht wahr):

“Each contestant underwent training in psychology, 7th century culture and m'Hammedist law; family relations, public rights, social skills, health knowledge, volunteering as well as cosmetics.” 

Skipping the hula hoop and driving portion of the contest, the all lady panel of judges (no guys allowed) granted it was Zainab Al-Khatam that snatched the crown. She's 24, blind and remains at home since school taking care of her family.

"...Zainab managed to exhibit superlative "respect for her family, parents and society" – by staying at home after she had finished her studies, in order to take care of her family. She suffered in dignity and accepted her lot, her martyrdom becoming all the more poignant because of her disability. She is a stark contrast to another Saudi woman, Samar Badawi, who was sent to jail for disobeying her father...."

No word yet on her stash of righteous booty won - though last year’s queen, 18-year-old hottie Aya Ali Al-Mulla, won serious bling  - 5,000 riyals ($1,333), a pearl and diamond necklace, a diamond watch and a free ticket to Malaysia (prob made it out to a decidedly unm'Hammedist fun free choice event).

Pic - "It is a self-perpetuating system: those in power reward submission, which in turn ensures the permanence of the existing corrupt and oppressive power structure."

GSG, if I'd been the judge, I'd have voted you for Miss "Queen of Beautiful Morals" any day!
