Disabled Beauty Pageant- Empowering Or Offensive?

The latest beauty pageant news is making us (thankfully) forget all about Carrie Prejean: A pageant planned for Cambodian landmine victims has been canceled. Similar pageants have been held in Angola, the organization says it's designed to celebrate "true beauty" and "female and disabled pride and empowerment," and the contest winners were to receive custom-made prosthetic limbs.

Check out the photos on the official website and let us know what you think-is the pageant offensive or empowering?
