The world seems to be fascinated that beauty queens from Argentina and Puerto Rico have married. Each other.
For one thing, it's news to a lot of people that femme lesbians exist.
For another thing, beauty pageants are built around the female form as idealized by men, and Mariana Varela and Fabiola Valentin have all but said, "We're not here for you, boys." They've broken the rules.
Which is why I find myself wondering how the nuptial news has played throughout Latin America, where macho culture is far from dead.
Of course, I also find myself wondering if Miss Ecuador is jealous.
