Leave it to Gloria Steinem to pretty much say everything I'm thinking about this whole Miley debacle.
"I wish we didn't have to be nude to be noticed. But given the game as it exists, women make decisions. For instance, the Miss America contest is, in all of its states, forms, is the single greatest source of scholarship money for women in the US. If a contest based only on appearances was the single greatest source of scholarship money for men, we would be saying 'This is why China wins.' You know? Its ridiculous. But that's the way the culture is. I think we need to change the culture, not blame the people that are playing the only game that exists."
