Miss France pageant accused of going ‘woke’ for crowning beauty queen with short hair
Telegraph newspaper.“Miss France is no longer a beauty contest but a woke contest which is based on inclusiveness,” said a commentator on Twitter, now known as X.The choice of a short haired winner was proof organisers were “instilling wokist (sic) values into society,” said one very angry person online.“The androgynous body is clearly to serve woke propaganda,” said one about Ms Gilles’ physique.Some even accused Ms Gilles, inaccurately, of being transgender simply because of her look.The criticism was even more bizarre considering plenty of women over the years considered to be the world’s most beautiful have donned cropped locks – from Linda Evangelista to Twiggy to Audrey Hepburn.The haters were soon drowned put by admirers of Ms Gilles, who wants to be a statistician.“Maybe the new Miss France isn’t gorgeous in your eyes, but seeing wokeism (sic) in her because she has short hair … It’s just ridiculous,” one retorted.“Eve Gilles is the new Miss France 2024, you’re malicious and useless criticisms won’t change that, she’s sublime.”“Short hair is androgynous now?” said one commenter, bemused by the whole episode.“Aren’t women allowed short hair anymore – I must have missed the memo.”French Greens MP Sandrine Rousseau backed Ms Gilles.“So, in France, in 2023, we measure the progress of respect for women by the length of their hair?” she said.Another MP, Karima Delli, backed the winner stating “Big support for Eve Gilles in the face of hateful tweets on social networks of incredible violence!”Ms Gilles even received support for right wing French presidential candidate Marine Le Pen, who is no fan of progressive issues.“Congratulations to Eve Gilles, Miss Nord-Pas-de-Calais who becomes our new Miss France!” she wrote.
