Debate question: Pageants

 I am sitting here playing on CM and Bethenny is on. The topic is pageant moms and their girls. One little girl is 10 and the other is 5 and both are cute little girls. When these little girls have their make up on they don't look 10 and 5 but older. They are dressed in costumes but to a pedophile its not a costume but a new way to stalk the child. My thing is after the glitter is gone where is the child? After they can't compete or they get older do they feel like they are still perfect?

I knew a girl in school who was in pageants and she was always popular, cheerleader and someone who everyone wanted to hang with. She got with the popular guy and got pregnant and he left her and went after his dream of college. She had her child, no college and the sad part she resorted to selling her body for money. I soke with someone who also knew her and they said that she thought her beauty would always get her everything she wanted and at the end it didn't.

 I knew a woman who had a child in pageants at 3 and this child couldnt play outside and her teenage boys had to do everything the child wanted. The child got sick and the parents blamed the boys and they resented their little sister.

Should a child be so "dress" up in make up at a young age?

Wouldn't it be better if pageants look for natural look instead of "made" up look?

Thoughts?

Personally, I dislike pageants with a passion. The way some of these mothers do their daughters is sickening. For crying out loud, let them be kids!

 Although I dislike these sort of things...if we are going to have them, I think pagaents should be based on talent and natural beauty.

I don't like them, especially the glitz kind.

If they're truly about beauty and talent then natural is the way to go.

 If they are going to have pagents for little girls then they should BE for LITTLE Girls NOT make them look like hookers and such w/all the make-up and adult stuff....grrr
