Miss Universe 2009 is in full swing as benevolent beauties from across the world compete for the illustrious crown.

Miss Universe 2009 is fun, nail-biting and exciting; however, it ranks quite low on the list of peculiar pageants. The featured peculiar pageant innovations, from transgendered beauty pageants to ugly pageants, will surely distract you from the aura of Miss Universe 2009.

Implications - The mass perception of what is beautiful has shifted from what magazines and other media outlets have deemed attractive to rather what feels good for different behavioral tribes. This shift signifies the acceptance of how others look and act, proving that society is more open minded than ever.
