Hi HNC and ATSers,
Absolutely...these shows sit too close to the borderline of pedophile material, IMHO. Take a moment and think about how many pedophiles actually watch
these shows...and the sick and twisted ideas that are planted in their heads as a result.
These kids are fed this crap (I recently saw a news report regarding the ethics of applying skin tone BREASTS onto these children - I mean, are you
kidding me??) before they are old enough to even understand what is normal and what is not. So they grow up thinking this is NORMAL and that they must
win at all costs and that winning in life is connected to how they look: how pretty they are: how their outer appearances will win them praise and
prizes...and when they grow up, they will find the same theme surrounding them.
So sad...for the majority of these girls will undoubtedly run into some manner of emotional/psychological issues later in life...unless, of course, it
is their dream to win Miss USA or something similar. Or if they are fortunate enough to receive therapy of some kind: it is said that the adult the
child will become is established and that patterns/beliefs, understanding of the world and their place in it are set by the tender age of...7.
However, it is the parents of these children I have the biggest issue with. They are the stage mothers (and we have all heard about tactics used by
some stage mothers) who also benefit from these shows, (as briefly illustrated in the video)...their children bring in dozens of bottles of laundry
detergent, rolls of paper towels, toilet paper, coupons and God only knows what else. Cleaning supplies for life for the quality of the life of a
But that is not all of it: aside from using their kids as material draws (product instead of cash), these women (not all of them, granted) could also
held in question regarding living their lives vicariously through their kids. It is also interesting to note that many of these parents are, shall we
say, not in the best shape, themselves. I don't want to be rude, but if there is another way of saying it, I would. They range from chubby to
outright fat. What is wrong with this picture? To me, it is an ugly one...the exact opposite of the supposed aim of these shows...I think??
Does anyone know the point of these shows? Like their Mission Statement? Is there one? Could there even be a viable one?
Just another example of how far the basic goodness of man has slipped.
