Kara McCullough, a 25-year-old scientist working for the U.S. Nuclear Regulatory Commission, was crowned Miss USA 2017 on Sunday by 2016 winner DeShauna Barber, also of the District of Columbia, at the Mandalay Bay Convention Center in Las Vegas. McCullough will go on to represent America in the Miss Universe contest.
The new Miss USA 17 is a woman (sorry, transgenders), black, scientist and non feminist.
“I’m extremely thankful for this opportunity,” McCullough told reporters after the event. “I just want to encourage so many women nationwide to find their passion in any subject possible and understand that nothing is difficult if you really, truly put the work in for it.”
Yes, smart, beautiful (beauty is not relative, feminists) and not playing the victim card.
During the pageant, McCullough created a controversy when she was asked some questions:
Are you a feminist?
She said: “I don’t want to call myself a feminist,” she said. “Women, we are just as equal as men, especially in the workplace.” “Is health care a right or privilege?”
Yes, people. She is clever and the feminist “equality “ fake definition did not work for her.
About health care?
“I’m definitely going to say it’s a privilege,” McCullough answered. She added: “As a government employee, I’m granted health care and I see firsthand that for one to have health care, you need to have jobs. We need to continue to cultivate this environment that we’re given the opportunity to have health care as well as jobs to all American citizens worldwide.”
Smart. Like we said in the past:”There ain’t no such thing as a free lunch”
What was so good about her answer was the fact that she went way beyond the easy way out of just telling people what she thought was right or most compassionate. Instead she got down to the heart of the matter by reminding us that when it comes to health care or any other commodity, you can’t talk about providing it until you cover who’s paying for it.
This has always been the core of the issue about health care even if it only seems like we’ve been arguing about it since the Obamacare debate began in 2009. Put into specific “right” vs. “privilege” terms, it began as early as 1936 when the still new Soviet Union guaranteed health care as a right to its citizens.
Predictably, McCullough was pilloried by feminist critics online after her response. She was attacked as a “dumb broad” and had her comments deliberately misrepresented.
Miss USA, who also happens to be a scientist working at the Nuclear Regulatory Commission, whose answer is like a much needed shot of reality.
Real science and not that piece of rubbish called gender studies.
