Watching Beauty Pageants


I don’t know if I am being scrupulous, or if I am raising a real issue here. I am curious to know, is watching a beauty pageant sinful? Even if done out of admiring beauty? Is it objectifying women?

Also, yes, this question does arise from the recent Miss Universe 2015 pageant that was on the other day.
