Ms. California, Carrie Prejean, got breast implants paid for by the Ms. California Pageant six weeks before the Ms. USA contest.
When pageant directors were prepping her for the USA crown, they decided it would make her feel better about herself, so they paid for the surgery for her.
What message do you think this sets for kids? Should the Pageant and directors get more flack for this?

It's not just pageants. Many guys think they are throwing dollars at strippers to help their "boob job fund". Even hooter's employers will help you get a boob job. Nice isn't it?

Yes it bothers me. Yes it sends the wrong message. Honestly, what I found MORE disturbing was the fact that they admitted that some of the girls use chicken cutlets in their swim suits and dresses etc. That is just BIZARRE. Using raw chicken in your clothes because you are THAT insecure?? REALLY??? LoL

I don't care. You know, when I look at all of the young highly publicized girls, this just doesn't seem to be much of a departure. It seems typical which is why I don't want my kids to emulate any young famous person. Ms. California included. I want them to be individual. If my DD decides one day she wants to do pageants, then I suppose I would let her. But while she is still young, I want her to be young for as long as possible.
Surgery is a personal choice. I don't get it (although, the more time gravity has it's hold on me I am getting there :o), but it's a personal thing. I don't know why we feel so cozy talking about another woman's fake boobs. Do we really care about it that much?

Next question overall
(Babies (0-12 months))
Is 10 months too young to let a child "cry it out"?
