Just a rant - anyone else find young beauty contests sick?
Yeah yeah, just bitching. I just watched a show where an infant was in a beauty contest. Many of these kids really don't act like they like this...

sorry for bitching.... Since Thursday night I have been dog sitting for a very unpleasant dog. I can't sleep, I can't leave my apt because he barks when I do and I don't want to piss off my neighbors.

1. From a to z
In every way, from birth to death, all of them are a bit twisted.

2. That's what I think too...
But I think the ones for the little kids are downright cruel.

3. Poor doggy...
I'm sorry you're in such an uncomfortable spot. I hope his owner comes for him soon. :hug:

And yeah, kids' beauty pageants should be outlawed...

4. I watched a little bit of Toddlers and Tiaras and wanted to ...
kill those people.

There's another show out there with the same stuff, and these people are deeply disturbed. This is child abuse.

"But the children like it..." Sure they like it. They'd like shit sandwiches if that's all they ever ate.

And while we're busy pounding the crap out of the parents, don't forget to get a few licks in on the show producers.

5. They are sick at all ages
Rate my ass
Rate my ass while I smile subserviently on command
Maybe my ass would look better if I walked around on extreme heels like there was a stick up it

---------
but yes, it's especially sick to see toddlers being prepped by their parents to look and act like strippers.



I watched an episode of that show where amazingly they managed to combine several additional offensive elements into it. Live puppies as prizes, plus lily-white girls in native american costumes doing ethnically fucked up versions of native american dances. (flat open hand banging against mouth). Well, they weren't lily white, really - they had fake spray on tans.

6. The movie Little Miss Sunshine highlighted their sick aspect
The MC of the contest in that movie was looking at the little contestants with lust in his eyes. It would have been funny if it wasn't so sick, sick, sick.

8. I saw a birthday card at work. It was a picture of a baby. The baby was cute but
had lipgloss on. I thought how disgusting is that.

9. I've thought so ever since the whole Jon Benet Ramsey thing
Those people might have been exonerated in the kid's murder, but there was something very sick and wrong about the whole thing regardless.

10. Yes.....
With these parents, it's not about the kids, it's about their own moronic ego, nothing more. Dumb bastards.

11. some little kids don't mind doing them, but for the most part it's for the parents
they make them practice and practice and the kids get burned out, I watched Toddlers and Tiaras too, and it was pretty evident that alot of that was for those moms. I had to kinda laugh when the poor kid didn't win, and the mother gets upset, the kid doesn't appear to be upset at all.

My kids were in skating, and at some competitions the situations appeared similar to these beauty contests.

13. In every case, the Moms are spending tons of money glamifying their
toddlers, when it would be better spent on their OWN grooming, which is clearly neglected.
