Opinión: Nada más que belleza

20 minutos

Ángela Ponce ha sido elegida Miss Universo España 2018. “¡Bravo!”, gritan y aplauden quienes piden mayor igualdad hacia las personas transexuales y transgénero. “¡No es mujer!”, responden otros, indignados porque esta modelo sevillana le haya “robado” el triunfo a las demás concursantes, quienes pudieron haber sufrido todo tipo de cirugías, pero no en sus genitales. Se crea así esta tonta discusión entre posiciones que creen que a través de un certamen de belleza se puede preservar ciertos valores o de crear un mundo más justo.

Parece que, de pronto, millones de personas se sienten afectadas por la elección de una mujer trans, pero se olvidan de que están hablando sobre una competencia que premia, principalmente— para no ofender a quienes dicen que también entran a juicio la inteligencia y la personalidad—, la belleza.

No se cuestiona aquí la elección de estas candidatas a soñar con ser coronadas como las más bellas, ya que las aspiraciones siempre deberían ser libres, cuestionados más que por su propio juicio. Así, hay personas que se sentirán realizadas haciendo política, escribiendo un libro, ganando concursos de bellezas o hasta jugando a la pelota. De igual manera, cada uno decide qué espectáculos quiere disfrutar viendo.

La crítica es que se está concediendo demasiadas virtudes a un concurso de belleza. Entonces, mediante este existe un público que quiere preservar un discurso conservador, y uno que quiere visibilizar distintas luchas sociales y políticas. Lo ridículo comienza a aparecer de diversas formas.

Por un lado, se leen comentarios transfóbicos en redes sociales insultando a Ángela Ponce y de quienes culpan a la ideología de género, como si esto los hubiese obligado a ver el concurso y a seguir las curvas de la sevillana. Seguro existe un grupo de hombres ofendidos por haber deseado a una mujer hasta que alguien les avisó que tenía el prefijo trans; y mujeres, también agredidas, por sentirse menos hermosas.

Pero también lo absurdo viene de la otra parte, sino solo hay que recordar la organización del Miss Perú 2018 el año pasado. El canal de televisión Latina transmitió este concurso donde las candidatas pronunciaban cifras de la violencia contra de la mujer en el país, mientras desfilaban en ropa de baño.

Los cuestionamientos siempre estarán en este tipo de competencia porque premian algo tan subjetivo como la belleza. Esta vez se dirigen a si la decisión de premiar a una mujer trans haya tenido un sesgo de reivindicación hacia la población transexual, a suerte de las cuotas que aparecen cada vez más a menudo, algo quizás más opinable y que Ángela Ponce tendrá que soportar.

Basta ya de discusiones alrededor de la belleza, ¡solo es belleza y nada más! El mérito para estos concursos es más para los cirujanos, diseñadores y estilistas detrás de las participantes.

    My wife and i felt quite more than happy when Jordan could deal with his research through the ideas he was given out of your web pages. It is now and again perplexing to just always be giving away information which often the others might have been selling. And we also know we need the website owner to appreciate for that. Most of the illustrations you made, the easy website menu, the friendships your site assist to foster – it is mostly excellent, and it’s letting our son and the family believe that that article is excellent, and that’s truly vital. Thank you for everything!
