What are your thoughts on child beauty pageants?

Journal Entry: Fri Sep 28, 2012, 7:46 PM
BECAUSE IT'S ANNOYING THE PIES OUT OF ME! like seriously? wtf fbdhgffhfgf ok so my older sister loves to watch this show Toddlers and Tiarias ...I personally think that show is really...disturbing :U Why? because it's about little girls with extensions, make-up, spray tans, fake teeth, and high heels to see who's the most prettiest girl ever. uuughhh it's just that....it disgusts me to see children like that. No...just no. Were talking about girls ages 4-12... oh yeah and some are BABIES! lol Why would anyone care who has the best baby? and that's not the worst part. There are mothers who push their child into doing pageants. I remember this one where the child was crying because the fake eyelashes were bothering her and the mother yelling at her *sigh* the poor thing also wanted to play with her dolly ;u; To me that's child abuse right there! :XD: and another thing that annoyed me was that once the child is so use to winning in pageants, they get too...spoiled and turn into divas. I remember another one where this little 6 year old said "I won because I'm skinny!" how sick is that? That poor child is already brainwashed lol. A 6 year old got her first high heels...when I was 6 I got my first jump rope...see that huge difference? See? xD I would NEVER want to put my daughter in a beauty pageant....it's gross. For those who have children, your child is beautiful the way they are. Do not make them into something fake! :aww:
I just want to know what your thoughts are on this because it's been bothering me forever :rofl: maybe you have different opinions? idk feel free to share :nod: Thanks!

My problem isn't so much the pageants themselves as it is the way they're run. It's a contest for little girls but, everyone acts like it's Miss America or Miss Universe and they shouldn't.

It really disgusts me how children are put in beauty pageants and are being pushed by their mothers. It really gets me how they can do that. If I had a wife who would do that to our children, I would be absolutely ballistic and could divorce her.

That's true! actually there was an episode where this mom said...
"my husband asked me to chose either him or child pageants...I chose pageants and
he left me but I don't care! haahaa!" I was like....really? :iconwthplz:

What a selfish and insane woman! Losing her husband that has been with her all the way, and that is how she treats him back in return! I applaud for the husband to divorce her, as he doesn't need all that from her! :iconclappingplz: When the mum realises what she has done, it will already be too late. Their daughter will grow up where she cannot do the child pageants anymore, what the mum open her eyes and to realise about reality? Who knows.
And child pageants should be banned all over the world! :police:

I find them disturbing as well. It's disturbing to see LITTLE kids with sexy clothes and make-up on. They're WAY too young for that stuff! Are they even sure that their kid will like that kind of stuff when they get older?
So yeah. |D

Hi I read your journal
It was interesting in some sense
It's so sorry to know that there are many shameful moms who show off their children in a pageant.
I also wonder why they decide to show up such a tv program...
To get rewards?

Anyway I totally agree with you; young girls are enough cute n beautiful in the way they are.
I retrieved that tv program title on Google and saw some photos of the girls who overdressed...
It's totally odd...

I completely, wholeheartedly agree with you. Over a month, I heard a story on "Dr. Drew" about this 3- or 5-year-old girl whose mother dressed her up as a blonde prostitute from "Pretty Woman" for one episode of "Toddlers and Tiaras" and I was like "WHAT THE HELL!? HOW COULD THAT MOTHER DRESS HER UP AS SOMEONE SHE'S NOT SUPPOSED TO FOR A DAMN PAGEANT!?"

Even worse? SHE ALSO DRESSED HER LITTLE DAUGHTER UP AS DOLLY PARTON! DOLLY FREAKIN' PARTON, WITH THE BIG FAKE BREASTS, BIG FAKE ASS, EVERYTHING!

Really, it's one thing for mothers to dress their little girls as Disney Princesses with very minimal makeup for Halloween, but it's another thing to dress them up in elaborate gowns and revealing outfits, put God knows how makeup on them, and put fake implants underneath their outfits just for those stupid pageants! I'm glad I don't watch that show. Have those mothers lost their damn minds, pushing their sweet little baby girls into doing those pageants? Seriously!

HGOYFCYFSCOTYCSCTOYSVTOY FINALLY SOMEONE WHO SHARES MY OPINION ON THIS SUBJECT >O< Toddlers and Tiaras disturbs me to no end o_o and all those poor kids Dx those parents are destroying our future generations and will turn our problem with the idea of beauty for women into an even worse state ;n; I'm afraid someday in the future all of America's girls will look like Barbie dolls with make-up and spray tans and anyone who doesn't will face even more bullying than they do now >~< imagine the self-esteem issues that our future generation will face ;w; it's just wrong :c

</3 I know right? ;n; I mean, I'd say I'm a pretty girl (it's taken me years to finally believe I'm pretty >~<) and the reason why it's taken so long to believe I'm pretty is because I've been bullied endlessly for not wearing make-up and for having a curvy figure (which everyone nowadays believes that you're "fat") >o< I feel like so many girls go through this when they're beautiful, but because they don't look fake, they're now considered "ugly". Now, everyone in today's world has to be bone thin and all these celebrities are promoting plastic surgery Dx I can only imagine how much worse it'll be in the future and it makes me want to cry sometimes because that might be something my future kids will have to go through ;A;

It's really quite disturbing. I mean a mom forcing a child to go on these pageants?! They have problems. And usually that's fake family love there, they say "You are the most precious thing in here so win this contest for me- I mean to show how great you are" and then they yell at you for not doing what THEY want "NDaniJNDLIJNDIlnK BAD CHILD!" I mean how is that love like family love?! Let them have their childhood and play games, eat cookies, or just go to the park, but no they just ruin the poor kids minds and make them turn out like divas :icondivaplz: I used to want to go in one, but I never knew what they did in them, when I found out, I'm like "just no, it's scary". What is it to be beautiful anyway? Everyone is beautiful inside and out, not just use the freaking fake crap they use to make them LOOK pretty. I mean honestly I don't know what's happening to this world :iconmonkeytsktskplz:

I know for a fact that 1 of my classmates in High School wore a lot of fake tan almost everyday, yea she looked a sight but I weren't angry with her as she had other girl friends (that didn't wear excessive makeup and such) who she did socialize with.

I see what you mean though. Seriously, do parents not listen to their kids and not let them choose by their own decisions? Really need is to slap some sense into them, otherwise. :slap:

I have to say, I completely agree with you. That show disgusts me. And you're right, it should be considered as abuse especially if they force their kid into it like that.. I watched it a few times a couple years back to see what the heck it was all about, and I remember this one mom just kept yelling at her daughter and making her cry throughout most of the episode...I wanted to punch her so bad. :shakefist: I felt so bad for that poor little girl. I feel bad for all those innocent little kids being forced to be "beauty queens/kings" (I saw one where they had a little boy on the show) at such a young age. It's sickening. Their idea of what's "beautiful" is going to be so messed up. :no: :facepalm:

Shows like this just make me sick. As you said it's abuse and does nothing but create monsters. Friendly competition is one thing but this, this is just terrible. No one is enjoying themselves, it's not fun. As many have said you're pretty much brainwashing the children. Is it any wonder things like anorexia and bulimia exist in the world today? Heck you're basically telling kids they're ugly if they aren't stick thin and wearing a ton of makeup and pretty clothing. These poor children are either be spoiled divas or have such low self-esteem it'll take years of therapy to undo.

Sadly this is [i]far[/i] from the only sick show out there. Things like [i]Bridezilla[/i] are awful as well. Yes folks, we're really filming a woman being a total b#$@% to her fiancÚ. Yeah, I think their marriage will totally work out don't you? NOT! Honestly, I think the media has gone insane at times. They are glorifying those that have drama in their lives and display them like they are the norm. It's [i]normal[/i] to have divorced 3 times in a few years, it's [i]normal[/i] to have cosmetic surgery over and over for vanity's sake alone, bulimia is acceptable if you're fat, etc. etc. NO! NO! NOOOO! True love relationships should not be riddled with drama, women and men shouldn't have to feel like they are ugly if they don't resemble the models on magazines. IT'S WRONG. End of story.
