    Just Plain Disturbing

    Whenever I see a Little Girl in makeup I feel like I am going to throw up in my mouth. I just think about that Jon Benet Ramsey girl and what happened to her and it makes me so sad. I have to wonder if there are at least a couple perv's judging those things and it makes my skin...

    I believe every little girl is beautiful.

    They don't need pageants to be beautiful.

    Watch This...

    ... and tell me it doesn't break your heart when that little girl cries because the fake tan spray is too cold. I mean, really? Fake tan, fake teeth, a hairdo that looks like a big bowl of sauerkraut and tons of hairspray? At her age? I am a grown woman. I am naturally beautiful...

    In answering the question what do you think of

    moms who put their daughters into child beauty pageants my answer is JAIL! If you want your daughter to be shallow, conceited,self-centered,obsessed with things like beauty and money. You will continue to enter her in beauty contests. Which will teach her that only image matters...

    I Dont...

    ...understand why parents would dress their daughters up like ******. Whats the point? Her face is caked with make up, performs a dumb talent and gets judged to see if she's good enough. That sends them a terrible message. Beauty pageants for little girls shouldnt exist.

    Just Not Right.

    Thankfully these pageants are not big in Australia because I just think they are wrong on so many levels For one thing the make up, why on earth would a sane parent want their child done up in professional make-up is beyond me, my kids wear make-up applied the way kids should a...

    THEY ARE JUST KIDS

    I do dislike it, but there's a reason to it... They are little girls and by trying to work on their figure right from the age of 4, when they'll grow older they'll have a low self-esteem and researches show that it did make the small models insecure of their physique even when...

    I believe children should be told they are

    beautiful, before the harsh reality of society sets in. In reality we are told to be skinny but go to any extreme lengths to do so or be individuals and stay normal, we all should have at least a few memories of Happiness and unconditional love.

    I Have A Good Reason

    Well, I believe that beauty pageants should be for women and teenagers.  They just try to make the kids look more grown up.  It's not very natural.  They would be fine by me if the girls had less makeup on and looked, well, like kids.  It looks like the kids...

    They Rob Our Children Of Their Youth

    Okay, this is just not right, I don't care what anyone else says, a 10 year girl wearing sexy dresses, make-up, heels and chicken fillets is quite frankly disturbing. Very disturbing. Children should not be sexed up like this, no wonder children are no longer acting like...

    How To Talk To Little Girls, By Lisa Bloom
