  • GROSS....objectifing a baby, making her look like a mini adult..... What good will come of making a five year old look like she is 18 and acting nothing short of a stripper??

  • Beauty pageants I think demean a woman and they do the same or worse to a child.

  • I absolutely loathe the entire concept of a beauty pageant. Whether for adults or children, especially children. Everyone here is right on!

  • Disgusting and perverted. I think child beauty pageants should be outlawed.

  • it is downright weird! Those poor girls walk around & really think they are the queen of planet earth. Gosh, & when they lose (OK, I caught one episode) their poor little ego's just get so crushed! Talk about breeding high maintenance chicks!

  • Its very overdone, I like the traditional way...no makeup, real talents, etc...its teaching the next generation of girls to be plastic, not cool.

  • I honestly think that it is sickening. Those girls who compete can have major issues and act like they are above everyone. The family seems to push these girls and degrade them if they mess up at all. I cannot fathom having the stress and pressure like that at such a young age.
