Recent "Miss Utah" publicity should turn our attention to a bigger issue: Why are we still doing this? A society that pits women in a contest of physical attractiveness ultimately objectifies women and sends unhealthy messages to the rising generation, boys and girls. There are no benefits from beauty pageants that can't be attained another way. Let's part with this vestige of a more shallow society and honor all women for who they are, not what they look like in a bathing suit.
