Although this is a social issue,I am posting this in the rant forum simply because of my obvious passion on the issue and the fact that I cannot be
open-minded in this regard.
After recently watching about 20 minutes worth of a show called Toddlers and Tiaras,
my mind was reduced to a steaming pile of vomit.
How on earth can someone called "mother" actually submit their child to such blatant
When a woman puts on a sexy outfit and goes on camera, gyrating her body and flirting
and winking at the camera, that is one thing, but to train a small child to do this is,
in my opinion and the opinion of countless others, is baiting a hook for pedophiles and
numerous other sexual deviants to salivate over. Do not be the least bit surprised if you
get more than a nibble.
Am I passionate about this topic? Oh, just a tad. I was the victim of rape at the age of 7,
due to parental neglect, which I won't go into. Does that make me entirely one-sided? Probably.
Do I apologize for that? Absolutely not. The main role of a parent is to protect their children,
NOT serve them up to the wolves on a silver platter. I think that these "mothers" are in complete
denial that these predators exist.
Please don't try to tell me how badly these little girls want to do this. I just watched this video
clip of a "mother" having her screaming child's eyebrows waxed. When it was over, I actually had my fists clenched without even knowing it.
Wasn't that special?
There is now a facebook page trying to ban the show:
...and another facebook page trying to ban the banners:
Here, a 2 year old toddler wears a glittering cone-bra outfit just like Madonna's.
Is it creepy? You bet. Is it made worse by the fact that there’s an entire institution
that condones this sort of thing? Absolutely. Are you going to watch it in horror while
you consider the fact that the garment being mimicked was worn while the woman who made
it famous was simulating coitus?
I have only one thing left to say to these so-called "parents" :
GET YOURSELF A DOG!!
