Russian contestant Kseniya Sukhinova has won the Miss World 2008 competition at a ceremony in South Africa. Ksenia Sukhinova of Russia is declared as Miss World 2008 at Miss World pageant that took place on December 13th in Johannesburg, South Africa

She is a Russian model, winning the 2007 Miss Russia pageant on December 14 in Moscow, where she represented Tyumen. Kseniam a part of Siberia, surpassed 50 other contestants from all over Russia. She was unable to represent Russia at Miss Universe 2008 due to her college work.

The 2008 Miss World Festival -- a record breaking year in the number of contestants taking part -- has seen 109 beautiful and talented contestants spend an unforgettable month in South Africa. However, there could only be one winner and the applause rang out in the packed Convention Centre as Julia Morley, Chairman of the Miss World Organisation and of the international panel of judges, announced the winner`s name.

Kseniya Sukhoinova's smile spoke a thousand words to a worldwide TV audience of over 2 billion as she was crowned by last year`s Miss World, Zilin Zhang. First runner-up was India's Parvathay Omanakuttan followed by Trinidad and Tobago's Gabrielle Walcott as second runner-up.

I am so happy to be here, I am so excited. It's amazing. I have experienced South African culture and everyday traditions.

The first runner-up, Miss India, Parvathy Omanakutta, grew up in the economic capital of India, Mumbai. Having graduated in Arts, Parvathy has studied Sociology, Psychology & English Literature, her ambition is to further her studies in Psychology to learn more about human behaviour in depth.

Leisure and sporting interests are: a special talent for whistling; listening to music; singing; reading; glass painting; basketball; badminton; swimming; acting; modelling: dancing (varying from local dances to learning ballroom and Latin dances); and learning new languages.

Best of all Parvathy loves her mothers cooking, but she does like to try different cuisines from all over the world. She is also very fond of a beautiful quote by a former President of India, Dr Abjul Kalam Dreams are not what you see in your sleep, but dreams are that, which do not allow you to sleep, hence her motto in life is Dream with your eyes open.

Miss India, Parvathy Omanakuttan Believes In Social Work

There is nothing like a first runner up or second runner up. Miss World is basically a British Concept. Miss Universe is an American Concept. While Miss Earth is (Pause) ...is about the EARTH. It consists of the EARTH (LOL) so, everyone of us is a winner. There are no runner ups.

Her motto is "do unto others, as you would have them do unto you."

Miss Trinidad & Tobago World 2008 Gabrielle Walcott

I am a great believer of: "you are what you eat." I have been a vegetarian since conception. While attending acting school in New York, I even tried the raw food diet. It was not easy, but I felt great! I also try to use organic beauty products especially, things that are grown in my garden like aloe. I am also, a huge fan of cocoa butter, vitamin A & E. Being from the Caribbean, I love the sun, sand and sea. I know from experience that a tan makes every woman look golden, the best pedicures come from walking on the beach and the salt water is the best natural hair product you will ever encounter.

In Miss World 2008 (Part II) or Deux, the ramifi- cations of social, poli- tical and eco- nomic dyna mics attached to beauty pageants will be explored. Are these contests merely a recomposition of innate human mating rituals or do they signify indelible facts concerning power relations and indicate unspoken truths about the commercialization of sex, gender and culture in particular as well as the human race in general?

Sluts on Parade LIke Cattle: Women's "Liberation?"
A response by Ms. Anti-Sheeple

I'll answer your question in simple terms, without the need for complicated analysis...

All these modern, "progressive" practices regarding women are nothing but Satanic influences via the Zionist-fuelled machine Feminism.

Someone needs to provide a logical explanation on exactly how the HELL a woman be "liberated" if she's parading around in her underwear and partaking in events that implies her worth is measured in her sexuality?

Notice how there are specific requirements for the females in these events: they must be UNMARRIED, CHILDLESS, a certain age etc. I wonder if they'll alllow females with stretch marks or a little extra weight to compete? They add in the dumb questions & pretend they frown on nudity to convince the masses they represent "modern, strong" women.

Funny...does anyone remember when they got some random, willing slut to represent Afghanistan on the Miss Universe Pageant? They hailed it as a breakthrough for women's rights in the Middle East. The truth is that MOST Middle Eastern women (regardless of religion, with the exception of the Zionist women) laugh all over these sluts, because they don't let anyone tell them what defines a woman, except their supreme creator. I hope there's a special place in hell reserved for these unintelligent inbreds.

Ironically, I'm from Trinidad. I'm a Muslim female & I went to UWI (same as the runner-up). I can confirm that sluts are plentiful in this country run by idiots. They are clones of the typical American woman. Their best defense in that we're "jealous" of them. They perpetuate the lie that in the Mid East all Muslim women are FORCED to dress in the burqa, as if it justifies dancing around in your underwear.

I'm quite happy with my UNpainted-like-a-clown face & PROPER attire, thank you very much.I'm also happy with NOT being voluntary masturbation material for the masses. Trust me, even the lewd males show respect for a properly dressed female. When they see the "modern", half-undressed female, they behave differently, b/c they know exactly what they can expect from her.

"War of civilizations"
A response by Stern Gang

Interesting to note how the "war of civilizations," aka., "the war on terror," is framed in a Suffragette discourse. Islamic misogyny is balanced against a supposed fully fledged freedom enjoyed by women in western culture and the world is asked to choose which system is best. Whereas, Muslims are almost exclusively presented in a macho masculine lexicon - devoid of women, children and loving relationships in the Islamic world.

Wherein, slippery slope examples such as stoning, honor killings, arranged marriages, acid attacks on school age girls, etc., are portrayed as insular representations of an entire complex and diverse culture of a quarter of the World, i.e., Islam.

No where in this propaganda are a comparative inquiry of existent archaic ills of western culture explored; exemplified in prostution, single families, high divorce rates, inequity, violence against women, paedophile clergy, etc. Then again, this calculated moral relativism would fall by the way side if such introspection were included in the disinformation project.

Suffragette aspirations reduced to a formal social freedom to model a revealing bikini.

Consider this economic dynamic in the potent exposé of human traffic in the West by Louisa Waugh's Selling Olga, which investigates seething facets of slave culture across Europe alive today. Therefore, simplistic condemnations only obscures the complex nature of morality and how vile reactionary exhibitions of the worse kind have imbued themselves in many aspects of modern western life.

The annual profit of traffickers bringing sex workers into Western Europe is estimated at $5bn to $7bn. That doesn't include money made once these women are prostituted and resold. Beaten, degraded, gang-raped, they are sometimes literally worked to death.

Olena Popik was pimped across five countries in three years. This 21-year-old Ukrainian was still being rented out at Bosnian truck stops while dying from Aids

In the so-called 'war on terror' Islam and Jihad are both equated with terrorism without a nexus to stories, lives or world views being experienced by 'the other,' i.e., the viewer of the disinformation at a conscious and inquistive level.

The poignant point here is that half and limited truths are utilized to make the best propaganda tools precisely, because they are founded on a measure of certitude, which ultimately, defaces and circumvents the underlying complexity of the facts.

The reality of the matter is Europe and the west having moved into a new genre of sophisticated economic exploitation of Africa, Asia and the "new world" surreptitiously, decry the the practices, cultures and lives of their victims as the embodiment of slavery, exploitation and despotism -- a manufactured affront to humanity, which needs to be eradicated with extreme prejudice.

Misconceptions & Lies
A response by Ms. Anti-Sheeple

Very thoughtful response, Stern Gang. You explained the minute intricacies of the propaganda disinfo machine very well with few words.

I'm glad you mentioned some of the most popular myths that are regularly pounded to death in the media.

Honour killings, female circumcision, lack of education for females etc are NOT ISLAMIC law, although the MSM would have you believe otherwise. Rather, they occur in a very small percentage of people who don't understand Islam, as well as with many other non-Muslims. The ridiculous honour killings also occur in India & certain parts of Asia, female circumcision originated & is common all across Africa & arranged marriages occur in virtually every part of the world.

I've seen a lot of people misquote & distort the Qur'aan & Hadith to show that Islam recommends female circumcision etc. They hide the facts, such as Middle Eastern women e.g. Iraqi women, are actually quite educated. Of course, the levels are low in certain parts, but the Middle East certainly isn;t filled with illiterate women.

These pageants do more harm than good to women. They make themselves public property. These events will always be popular to females, even those who were brought up in a religious background. I think the lure of beauty, fame & admiration from others, exemplified in the descriptions of the contestants above, is a very strong attraction to women.

I can see why women will be obsessed with these things; guys are attracted to women who are pleasing to the eye. Women want to achieve that male worship & desire, so the entire thing has become an industry, affecting commerce, society etc as pointed out in the post.

I've noticed that some Muslim women now shy away from the prescribed way of dressing due to influences such as this. It's simple: guys look at the girl WITHOUT the headcovering, not the one with it. Religious garb is a turn-off, whether it be AMish, Islamic or Jewish. It depends on your will & strength as a person, I suppose, to stick to your beliefs. If your weak, nothing will stop you from following the masses, as they're quite tempting.

The female form as an art = class
A response by Rhiannon

The eyes looking away, in the shadows, a sober look, a look with no expectation. No breasts, butt, or sassy poses. Emphasis on a partially hidden face, nothing aggressive or bold.

You would think that would be easy but it is not. [Smut is very easy and heavily saturated in our media].

Take on those rules and the female form is something to behold...a work of art. Innocence is rewarded with respect.

Let us follow Stern Gang's logic further
A response by RowanBerkeley

How did it come about that pseudo-'feminist' issues became the main emotional propaganda point for the West's attempt to enslave and/or re-enslave the Muslim world? It didn't just happen all at once after 9/11, you know. It is the result of a process that has been carefully developed in US political culture since the end of WW2.

This is another of those issues where the more simpistic right-wingers will say, "aha, the Frankfurt School, Freud plus Marx, all the better to Satanise you with!" But my view is that the reason the OSS (CIA's predecessor) brought the Frankfurt School people (Marcuse, Adorno, Horkheimer, etc.) to the USA at the end of the war was because their projected freudianisation of marxism, their attempt to turn marxism from a primarily economically focussed theory of class struggle into an anarchistic free sex binge, was intended to - and succeeded in - distracting the 'US Left', such as it was, from serious class struggle, and sent it off in pursuit of stupidities calculated to be repellent to the masses, and to provide ample talking points for right-wing TV pundits, the current stupid pseudo-'progressive' idea being gay marriage, but at each stage (think of the Kinsey Report) this pseudo-'Left had been systematically goading the masses with disgusting depravity and proclaiming it 'progressive'.(Marcuse had actually been directly employed by OSS)

Hmmm...
A response by Grim Reaper

...fronts are bad, backs are good, and when the monkeys get the wrong idea, that's bad right?

Grim Reaper | Mon, 2008-12-15 15:08

Heh heh...
A response by Rhiannon

ndeed, row.

your comment isn't necessary to understand at all. And all the easier to forget.

Rhiannon | Mon, 2008-12-15 15:09

Baad? Gooood?
A response by Rhiannon

Gee golly. When did I say bad and good? And when did I say that "fronts" were bad?

Hey Stern....

This was the original video:

The video you placed is okay....but not my style. :)

Ingenue by Life in Mono is much more to my liking and my style. I always post videos that I love and make a point at the same time.

Your choice is okay.
Mine is great!

[ha ha]
