One of the main social highlights of the conference was a beauty contest. Each of the nine regions picked their girl to represent them, and they posed for everybody. I didn't want to attend, but was requested to do so, as we the international guests would have the honor of being the judges.
To be honest, I wish I had not accepted. It just... Felt bad. Even though I was the only one in the auditorium I could see that didn't like that.
So, I don't know if it is more prominent in FOSS, or it is just coincidental that Bolivians accept beauty contests more than me (I was told it is a pretty common thing), or what... But it happens in that setting as well.
