Why a female beauty contest in the Netherlands was won by a man?


The 22-year-old will go to represent the country at the Miss Universe pageant. Women's beauty pageant in the Netherlands won by a man 

For the first time in history, the Miss Netherlands pageant has been won by a transgender, French newspaper Le Figaro reports. The winner was 22-year-old Ricky Colle, who will now go to represent the country at the international contest "Miss Universe".

In the opinion of the jury, he had "an incendiary performance" and "showed great progress" in the competition. In 2018, Colle was a participant in the Dutch version of the show "The Next Top Model", where he became a finalist.

This is not the first time that a man in the countries of the "collective West" wins women's beauty contests. In November 2022, 19-year-old Brian Nguyen won the local Miss America competition in Derry, New Hampshire. Political scientist assessed the transgender scandal at Miss America: "The process of dehumanization"

In addition, the guy did not differ in model parameters, on the contrary, he was endowed with obvious health problems. But the jury didn't stop it. The organizers said that beauty is changing, now the competition "will no longer be about women."

This decision of the judges raises many questions, because this is not the first women's competition in which men win. Many point out that the dominance of biological men in women's sports does not advance the struggle for equality of all sexes, but, on the contrary, infringes on women.

The situation was commented on by Russian Senator Alexei Pushkov, who noted that this is a signal of the gradual degeneration of the nation.

“This is not just a trick, it is a declaration of values, a proclamation of a social creed ,” the politician wrote in his Telegram channel.

Pushkov added that from the point of view of a social construct, such a decision promotes as a model those representatives of the population who are incapable of procreation.
