  1. Gracias chicas por visivilisarnos a las mujeres y sus problematicas ahora si creo que los concursos de belleza sirven para algo.Para ayudar a la mujer ojalá más concursos en el mundo hagan lo mismo ya es hora de tomar conciencia

  2. Islam condemns hatred against people – "O you who have believed, be persistently standing firm for Allah, witnesses in justice, and do not let the hatred of a people prevent you from being just. Be just; that is nearer to righteousness. And fear Allah ; indeed, Allah is Acquainted with what you do" (Quran 5:8) What do you think?

  3. As much as this was nice and everything, I doubt this is going to cause any change in the future. Plus, they're talking to an audience that's judging them based on their physical traits, so "anything smart" coming out from them is the equivalent of nothing to the audience's ears.

    Also, maybe they shouldn't have cropped the screen so much, since it now reads "Anal Peru" in the top left.
