beauty contests...I really don't know...they seem to be dependent on makeup, hair, surgical treatment, and with very subjective western standards. I think the idea of beauty contests is outdated.
They are both beauty contests....one is of male beauty and the other is of female beauty.

Looking muscular is a stereotypical male characteristic of male beauty.

Looking curvy and lean with smooth skin etc...are stereotypical female characteristics,

Which is why I said removing the beauty rounds off the pageant is as ridiculous as a body building contest with all competitors fully clothed.

(yes, there are female body builders...that's an exception)
