Former Miss America Kirsten Haglund is seriously concerned about the negative effects pornography is having on society, according to The Blaze.

“It portrays an unrealistic view of women and that, perpetuated, destroys relationships,” Haglund told Billy Hallowell. “It’s really a reflection of our own brokenness in this country with why we choose to see women that way and why we demand that of advertisements and fashion.”

Haglund was crowned Miss America in 2008 and runs a foundation that helps people overcome eating disorders.
