These girls and young boys.....it just disturbs me that, in todays pageant world, we make a 5 year old girl look like she is 25. Why? Is she supposed to be 'sexy' and "mature"? She is a child for Christ's sake!! We are going to have an even more sexed-up generation of young girls if we don't stop this oversexualization of our youth. If a mommy wants to do a pageant, fine. But there is no way a baby or a toddler or a young child has the mental faculties to choose.
Or eliminate all the makeup and dresses and fake teeth and tanning and what not, and prevent the "winner" from winning cars and large amounts of money, maybe then we wont prostitute our daughters the way these so-called "mothers" are doing.
