I was watching Dr. Phil yesterday and they had these women on there who have their daughters entered in beauty pagent contests looking like miniture hookers. I was stunned when I saw pictures of the one 8 year old girl: more make-up than Tammy Faye Baker, hair pieces, false teeth, fake tan and totally slutty outfits. She looked like a plastic Barbie. It really made me sick to see this. It's a pedophiles' dream child if you ask me.
Of course, you've got the mothers up there defending their actions and insisting that it's "just for fun". They claim that it "builds self-confidence" in the child. Ya, riiiiiight. More like it's the mothers living through their daughters.
To me, these 'beauty pagents' for children should probably be banned. I find it very disturbing that anyone would dress their children like hookers and teach them to "strut" down the runway in a very sexually promiscuous manner. What kind of message is that sending?
Anyone else think these things should be banned?
