Neither "Beauty" nor "Queen"

Context for the titles of two recent posts should clarify their use.

But, in the event there remains any confusion on the issue, I am claiming to be neither a “Beauty” nor a “Queen,” nor especially the confluence of those descriptors, a “Beauty Queen.”

In fact, my only beauty queens are my wife, Carrie, and daughter, Audrey.

Sorry, boys: “Frogs and snails and puppy dog tails” is especially apropos, although I wouldn’t expect that you prefer to be characterized “sugar and spice and everything nice.”
