This is Not beauty! This is not classy! This is sick. I definitely believe you send the wrong message to your daughter when you place them in one of those pageants.You are telling your daughter your not good enough as you really look, so lets muck you up with alot of expensive make-up and very expensive dress ...You are showing your child that the false reality of this world is what to achieve...Not higher learning and responsible actions.

This just makes me sick...
I have had family in that pageant world...Trust me you don't want to know a old washed-up Beauty Queen!!!


And the most ironic thing of all, if you look at the last picture of the little girl, and take away the wig and the clothes, what a BEAUTIFUL little girl

This show has been on for quite sometime and will continue to be on as long as people watch it.
Does anyone remember JonBenet Ramsey case?


JonBenét Patricia Ramsey (August 6, 1990 – December 25, 1996) was an American child beauty pageant contestant who was murdered in her home in Boulder, Colorado in 1996. The six-year-old's body was found in the basement of the family home nearly eight hours after she was reported missing. She had been struck on the head and strangled. The case, which after several grand jury hearings remains unsolved, continues to generate public and media interest. Colorado law enforcement agencies initially suspected JonBenét's parents and her brother. However, the family was partially exonerated in 2003 when DNA taken from the victim's clothes proved they were not involved.[1][2] Her parents would not be completely cleared until July of 2008.[3] In February 2009, the Boulder Police Department took the case back from the district attorney to reopen the investigation.[4] Media coverage of the case has often focused on JonBenét's participation in child beauty pageants, her parents' affluence and the unusual evidence in the case. Reports have also questioned the police's overall handling of the case. Several defamation suits have been filed against several media organizations by Ramsey family members and their friends over reporting of the murder.

And,yet we have parents pushing their kids,not only in beauty pageants,but sports,academics and so much more.
They are robbing their children of their childhoods to try to accomplish something they,themselves could not achieve.

What happend to letting kids be kids till they're 18.

Let them get put on the school swiming/field sport/football/whatever team because they are good it it.

None of this sexy glomorisation till they can decide for themselves.

I find this grossly out of order.

I have to mention as well, the few time that ive seen the show, the ridiculous entrance fees the organisers charge, $500 !!!! I mean, are these people insane? not to mention the price of dresses, hundreds of dollars, are these parents mad?
It also appears to me, (based purely on the few times that ive seen it, and i may be wrong), but the blonder the kids hair is, the more chance she has to win the competition. As i say, i may be wrong it might be the bits of the show ive seen.

Disgusting - what happened to letting children just be children!?!?!


This is child abuse - putting young children through this is beyond despicable and I simply cannot grasp that this s***e is allowed on TV. Everyone should stop watching the show, tell your friends to stop watching it, and complain. Dont buy any products that sponsor this show. Seriously beyond despicable.

It's exploitation of children.
The show is skirting the law in my opinion.

Commercial sexual exploitation of children (CSEC) constitutes a form of coercion and violence against children and amounts to forced labour and a contemporary form of slavery.[1][2] A declaration of the World Congress against Commercial Sexual Exploitation of Children, held in Stockholm in 1996, defined CSEC as: ‘sexual abuse by the adult and remuneration in cash or kind to the child or a third person or persons. The child is treated as a sexual object and as a commercial object.’[2] CSEC includes the prostitution of children, child pornography,[2] child sex tourism and other forms of transactional sex where a child engages in sexual activities to have key needs fulfilled, such as food, shelter or access to education. It includes forms of transactional sex where the sexual abuse of children is not stopped or reported by household members, due to benefits derived by the household from the perpetrator. CSEC also potentially includes arranged marriages involving children under the age of 18 years, where the child has not freely consented to marriage and where the child is sexually abused.

i'm more concerned with the people who see this and think its of a sexual nature.
to me it looks like some little kid playing dress up, apparently kids like to play dress up, and sometimes theyre parents think its fun too.
i understand you hearts are in the right place, but highlighting crap like this as child abuse is stupid.

Everytime I come around to feeling more love for my country, I am reminded of our shortcomings. I generally resent the child pageantry business, in that I see it as furthering the oppression of women by sexualizing them and making them objects at a young age. These pageants may seem to be celebrations of beauty to us as adults, but they are in fact focal points around which these young girls will begin to define their lives and the way they see reality. It is hard for me to accept that a three year old girl dressing as a prostitute can be a positive thing.

I suppose this costume belongs aside the "lil suicide bomber" or "my favorite nazi" costumes we're due to see on the next season of this subpar show.

Another fine reason to exercise my right to watch what I choose, or not watch at all.

Softcore child porn is what the producers are getting away with. Crush the show and teach them and their advertisers a painful lesson.....We consumers do not support this garbage( read kiddieporn) packaged as entertainment. Let girls grow into ladies, not objects. Stop attacking our children.

I actually feel hatred towards the propagation of this industry of child pageantry, and am sincerely hurt to see that kid being paraded around like that. Parenting is no small matter, ever. Every child represents an opportunity in the future for something better. Every pageant like this works against those promising futures IMO

OMG !!! its Lisa from the Simpsons going trout fishing.


Seriously though... I wonder if the parents would reflect on that moment on stage if this little one grows up to walk the streets in a similar outfit still expecting and knowing the attention and money that goes with it.

I dont think its supprising this sort of thing crops up at all.

Remote villages have never been more connected thanks to phones, text and internet, so rare goings on more connected, than actually rare.

Is it all that supprising that like minded social creatures seek familer company (good or bad)

I found Isaac Asimov's i robot books to be illuminating on the idea that social minds seek similer company, it doesnt really matter what your interests are, using the tools we have today its never been easyer to meet others. Once agian for good or bad reasons according to local social rules.

I think there should be a goverment force sent out to investigate these fringe social criminalistic events, just keeping tabs on what new social activities occurr, documenting them and presenting the findings to the countrys law/polical fronts.

Im NOT saying there is anything directly sinister to these shows or events, but we know very little in yet another fananitic category and to have a speicalist review tender occasions would be settling at the very least.

No law was ever passed without evidence of criminal, selfless intent producing a clear victim.

An honest question here:

What can we do? Anyone have a phone number or E-Mail address that we could contact the producers at?


The company responsible for this is called Discovery Communications. This link has telephone numbers and addresses for the company's head office and branch offices around the world, if anyone would like to inform them of your feelings. They also have a "Viewer relations page" to leave feedback about programming.

Incidentally, while looking for this information I was surprised to learn of the Discovery Communications Headquarters Hostage Crisis. A man named James Jay Lee took three hostages before being shot dead. He had publshed "a demand for the company to cease the broadcasting of television series displaying or encouraging the birth of "parasitic human infants and the false heroics behind those actions"" according to the link. My sympathies are with the victims of that reprehensible act, needless to say.

Not surprisingly, I agree with you 100%.

I have a question. How is dressing as Julia Roberts in Pretty Woman (which she has no clue about) hurting the little girl? I mean she's a cute little girl that is in pageants (so therefore already a 'piece of meat') and she's accustomed to dressing up in costumes because that's part of the schtick.

How is this hurting this girl?

I don't agree with pageants for little girls. But there's a lot of things I don't agree with about how parents are parenting today. But this one instance is being blown entirely out of proportion, IMO. People need to get a life of their own so they can get their noses out of other people's!

We live in a sick F ing world with sick F ing people.

There are going to be mental midgets who are going to say you are wasting your time.
You are NOT wasting your time. It is important that these things be brought to light and discussed.
It helps me to know that there are like minded people in this world and that the world still has some good in it.
So, NO you haven't wasted your time at all.

I want off this rock.
This is seriously disturbing and sick.
My wife watches this show for the shock value and I can't take more than 10 or 20 mins of it.
We both sit there in shock while we are watching it.
What in the HELL has happened to people????

I think the appeal is aspiring to "be like" the images we see in the media which glamourise beauty. I mean let's face it, magazine covers of gorgeous, sexy models attract our attention, momentarily take our breath away (think A-list movie stars), especially standing in line at the grocery stores. You don't think those mags aren't there for a reason?

Everyone wants a cute kid, one who stands out and one we can be proud of. Why do so many moms get their babies/children into child modeling? Do ya think it's to say to their friends, "Oh, look how cute my kid is, she's in an ad?" You bet! Vanity/beauty sells. My daughter would have hated me if I had tried to dress her up and prance her around in front of people; heck, she'd rather be catching nightcrawlers and fishing all day...


I admit to a certain level of wanting my kid to be a "star." But, then I realize we all have freewill and you can't force something that's not there, at least you shouldn't.

Therefore, saying: ''if you dont want your child to do this kind of stuff, dont let em'' is completely ridiculous, as that way of thinking just gives the ''parents'' carte blanche to legally abuse, exploit and/or humiliate their children for whatever reason they see fit.


...massive fail, sweetheart - because - (1) neither my words, my will nor my way of thinking has the power to give anyone carte blanche - and - (2) the laws made over the eons have not stopped abuse, exploitation, humiliation, etc., nor will they ever - because - those who like to harm children will always find a way to do what they want regardless of laws or social mores... (to belay your tendency to go off into the outer reaches of the universe, my previous comment does not support the concept of no laws whatsoever)...

...btw - how do you know that the person who wrote the article isnt a child abuser?... did you just presume they are a good person?... of course you did because you're just really sweet like that - but - for all we know, they could beat their kids with a belt (or whatever weapon is available) every day or worse - or - they may not have any kids at all and their opinions are based upon arrogance, fantasy and a need to control others...

In essence, your quote is based on the proviso that parents will always do the right thing for their child, and have their child's best interests at heart. We all know that this isn't always the case.


...no... my opinion is based upon the behavior of self-righteous buttinskis who think they are so superior that they have a right to dictate how other people raise their own children... that same ilk will gripe about the government limiting their rights but (because they are mental deficients) they dont see anything wrong with them being just as limiting as the government...

...keep on being a cheerleader for that ilk and, the next thang ya know, they'll be demonizing you for being so dang cute (as if thats your fault)...

Well my kid (if I had a girl) won't be going to your house to play let's dress like a prostitute anytime soon, or to be more specific "Hey let's all pretend to be the prostitute from that movie that Julia Roberts acted in" Ok well now that you put it that way it's OK. Oh by the way that movie has an R rating for a reason...

Perhaps a little bit more taste is required for children of a tender age.

On the other hand I don't agree that these parents should be locked up for child abuse.

Well thank god this wasn't as disgusting as the Olsen Twins countdown until they were of legal age.
"Just one more day Bob and I'm not a pedophile." I saw that # on the Net. Media and parents that shouldn't be parent should be shot.

My youngest will be 16 next week. She's been approached by "legitimate" agencies to model. She wants to. It ain't happening. One of the few things my ex and I agree on.
