What's the point of a Beauty Pageant if everyone is sporting fake teeth, hair, tans, eyelashes, eye colors, and fake everything!? They might as well have two beauty pageants: one for the naturally beautiful, and one for those who can buy their beauty. Amirite?

I did a lot of beauty pageants as a kid. But not the one where they have fake teeth, spray tans, fake eyelashes, etc. My mother only put a very small amount of makeup on me, and she helped me do my hair. It was largely about natural beauty.

Though once she accidentally entered me in one of those pageants, with all the fake stuff. (They're called glitz.) My friend Saxon got entered as well, and neither of us used a whole lot of makeup or anything....and we ended up winning instead of one of the 'properly' dressed girls.

Beauty pageants disgust me. They're sexist and they teach young girls that being "pretty" is the most important thing. They're also a waste of money and it just seems wrong for people to tell little girls whether or not they're prettier than others.

I was JUST about to post this after watching Toddlers & Tiaras. The girl was talking about how the person with the most money wins because they can afford everything fake.

Wow, great minds think alike! The first time I saw Toddlers & Tiaras, I was just SHOCKED about how a bunch of three year olds looked so old and acted like it too...why not just let them be normal and enjoy childhood? It's not like they can come back running to the playgrounds at 40 without bringing their children...

Yeah and I love how some of the parents say they hope their kids will move on to big, important things. Wtf? What is dressing up your child to look like a 20 year old gonna do for them in life?

my daughter is 3 and shes in pagents. alot of ppl look down on me because im so young (20) and they think that im putting the wrong ideas in her mind, but she loves pagents so much, i make sacrifices whereever i can. me and my boyfriend sacrificed things like going to college or buying a nicer home (instead of living with my rents) cuz it takes soo much money for my kyndyll to compete with all the dresses and stuff, but i see nothing wrong with it. she can shake her booty on on stage, show a little skin, wear some fake hair and some fake teeth and know that she needs to have morals nd that she s beautiful
pagents are NOT bad
