  • It depends on the child. If the childdoesn't want it then no. If he/she is all for it then sure. So long as it's not crazy.

  • I have never liked beauty pageants even the Miss America pageant. I don't like to see women parade around and be judge mostly on their looks. That goes double for children.

  • ONLY if the child wants to do it whole-heartedly. The exact second she decides she doesn't want to do it anymore, the mother should stop.

  • HELL No! That is so barbarick and wrong! Especially when you see children 3 and under doing them. They look so miserable and their fat ugly mothers force them to wear a big itchy dress and parade around like little whores! I HATE THAT CHIT!!!

  • If the child wants to and as long as it was for fun then I don't see a problem with it. My problem is when they put too much make up and the parents force their children into it, etc.

  • Has anyone else noticed that the parents who put their children in pageants are always fat ugly low income families?

  • Anon: You are just a troll. I can tell which posts are yours everywhere. Are people being fat or ugly all you talk about? You're an ass! Barbaric? . . . talk about using a word out of context!
