The Miss Indian World pageant is the answer to Miss America we’ve been looking for

When Kira Kazantsev was crowned the new Miss America on Sunday night, a feeling of déjá vu set in.

Not only was she white — like all but nine of the 94 winners before her — she also fit snugly into a narrowly defined standard of Western female attractiveness: early 20s, long flowing hair and a thin, painstakingly tanned physique that would not seem out of place in a Victoria’s Secret catalog.

In many ways, the Miss Indian World pageant’s definition of what American beauty truly entails is the ideological antithesis to Miss America. Indeed, since 1984, this five-day competition based in Albuquerque, N.M., has honored Native American woman for their contributions to their communities, not their bikini bodies. The top award is given to the contestant who “best represents her culture,” according to Al Jazeera.

Why this pageant is world’s better 

Plus it takes place across the street from my office!

Yes, but then we will indulge in Mommy’s favorite pastime, which is Detailed Analysis of Fairy Tale Tropes Until You Roll Your Eyes and Wail “MOOOOM I GET IT ALREADY PRINCESSES CAN BE STRONG INDEPENDENT CHARACTERS I JUST WANT AN ELSA DRESS ALREADY.”

Modern parenting realizations:

Before having a kid: “We’re going to make sure that all of her toys are intellectually stimulating and free from any gender coding.”

After having a kid: “HOLY CRAP SHE REALLY LIKES THAT PINK PLASTIC THING SHE’LL PLAY WITH IT FOR AT LEAST 20 MINUTES AT A TIME IT’S THE BEST THING EVER!”

Nested life dilemmas:

Upside: I got a 10% raise.

Downside: My job is getting exponentially more frustrating.

Upside: Mr. Pietra flew out this morning to a job interview with a snazzy tech company whose name begins with “G.”

Downside: If he gets it, we’re moving back to the Bay Area.

Upside: Thereby giving me a good excuse to leave my job!

Downside: … and try to get a new one as the mother of a six-month-old.

I am not quite sure what I’m hoping for, here.
