Dairy Princess is Lactose Intolerant

Even in this modern and, one would hope, civilized age, people would reject intolerance. But it is not so -- nay, not even in something as mundane as the competition for Washington State Dairy Ambassador:

She has to have worked on a dairy farm or shown dairy cows for FFA or 4-H. She must be single. She must be a legal resident of Washington. She must have a neat, professional appearance without any tattoos or piercings.

These are all the requirements of being a Washington State Dairy Ambassador. As strict as some of these requirements are, one requirement that might seem logical is missing — namely, that she be able to consume dairy products.

Laurel Gordon, 18, a senior at Elma High School, was Grays Harbor County's Dairy Ambassador for 2010 to 2011 and is a contestant for the state dairy ambassador title in next month's competition. She is also a lactose intolerant dairy princess.

she should be sacked and the rules changed. it is like having a devout Jewish girls as pork princess. or peanut queen who is deathly allergic to peanuts. it is stupid. so what she works on a diary farm! 150 years of cows and milk and she can't even drink any? defective. that is for sure. having everyone know is a blow to milk, and gives fodder for all those vegan freaks out there who say milk is no good. i like soy milk too sometimes, but you shouldn't be talking about drinking it when you are MILK princess!!!! find a princess out there that can actually CONSUME the product you are trying to sell!! this makes this pageant look like a farce (well they all are anyway, really....).
