Melissa King, a young woman from Delaware who in November was crowned Miss Delaware Teen USA (a paragon of respect for womanhood owned by Donald Trump), resigned her sash and crown Tuesday after a porn site published a short sex video purporting to feature her, the (Delaware) News Journal reported. The five-minute film, apparently produced last year, shows a young woman who looks like Bethany Beach 18-year-old, sounds like her, has her birthday and competes in pageants. (King has denied she made the video, but her digital doppelganger seems to pass the ‘duck test‘). The day the video was posted, King’s lawyer, J. Gregory Hannigan, sent a letter to the pageant saying that his client was relinquishing the crown.
Whether the duckleganger is King, or a different young lady with whom she shares similarities, the unfettered exhibitionism of fresh-faced ambitious women today seems a bit bold to me (a veteran of the 1960s notion of ‘free love’). However, I’ve seen enough episodes of “Girls” to understand that uninhibited sexual experimentation is not so uncommon in schoolgirls today, and tolerating humiliation is a healthy sign of an independent spirit.
