Child Beauty Pageants = Child Abuse

Child Abuse Pageants……you gotta love them ????

Am I alone in thinking that the whole thing is child abuse? These parents who dress their little girls and boys up as mini adults, or mini drag queens, or mini call girls, or mini Dolly Partons are living their lives through their children.

This is child abuse!  This is child abuse of the worst kind because it is sneaky and addictive. It’s a threesome of sorts; a three way between the parent/parents, the audience and the impressionable child.

It’s a sick and twisted way of saying prove yourself kiddo and wanting the little one to be all that they weren’t by trying to fulfill their unmet desires for attention no matter how misplaced those desires may be or  at what consequence for the child later in life. Eating disorders, low self esteem, Dismorphia and premature sexual activity, depression and suicide are a just few consequences that come to mind.

The focus in these Pageants is wholly on image, the clothes they wear and how they perform within this surreal context. It’s all about illusion but is sold in a way that sexualizes the child in a culture that makes sexualization of children a Taboo. In Fact its Western society’s biggest Taboo along with incest. This is totally confusing to a child and to me.

Children should be allowed to be just that, (children), play with their toys, play mothers and fathers, get dirty in a park or backyard, climb trees and fall  over, bash each other up, steal things, wag school, lie to their parents and teachers, play violent video games like Grand Theft Auto (all the normal things that normal children do) and not be going through the adult ordeals of bitchiness, envy, manipulation, narcissism and neurosis that come with Child Beauty Pageants.

To me, they always look like grotesque midget circus clowns. I read somewhere that these kids even get waxed for these events. Waxed?? Give me a freakin break. What are they going to wax? There’s nothing to wax unless the kid is a wolf child.

Fake tans and acting schools are other requirements for these infant Human puppets. Acting….so that they can make a kid an artist at being a pain in the arse. My fear is that these perverted spectacles will escalate in production values and pretty soon we’ll have five year old’s being injected with Botox, having Rhinoplasti and  breast implants and this will be considered normal…….
As for “building confidence” , children of these age groups will have plenty of time to build up their confidence,

✲confidence to realize that their parents are ugly and disenfranchised losers who live vicariously through the emotional torture that they want to inflict on their children,

✲confidence that  they don’t need this made-up world, which has no connection with reality, excepting the special allure to pedophiles

✲and the confidence to go out and find fresh, new parent’s who know that their role is to protect their child against sexual predators, not make them appealing to them.

At the time of posting this today, there were 4232 fans on Facebook for a group called Australians Against Child Beauty Pageants, and 2639  fans for the Pull the Pin on Pageants page, Please feel free to visit these pages and support them.

While the Facebook page Australians Who Love Beauty Pageants have 377 fans. Is it just me or do we as Australians not agree with these Child Beauty Pageants.

One recent online poll was unanimously against Child Beauty Pageants with 83.89% against and a mere 16.11% in support of  them.

Who can forget poor little JonBenét Patricia Ramsey (August 6, 1990 – December 25, 1996) the American Child Beauty Pageant star that was discovered murdered in her home in Boulder, Colorado in 1996. The six-year-olds 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.

In October 2010, the case was reopened.

What do you think?

Seriously it’s neither normal nor right……

    Why just pick on child pageants? I think the whole concept reeks of …..
    And, by the way, if we ogled the child or the young miss (I think that’s a requirement, but I don’t follow the genre) like they do on tv, we would be arrested!
