Gag me with a wig.... seriously!
This is wrong on so many levels. Seriously. There is a baby with a hoodie in those pictures with FREAKING LIP GLOSS ON!
WHY do people do this to their children? WHY?
These are BABIES! CHILDREN!
Is it a sick fascination to live a childhood the parents never had? Is it the recognition that the parents want to receive?
I believe that certain pageants have a place and purpose.
These, however, do not. They are a form of child abuse, IMHO, and should be banned.
Since when has it been a good idea to age our children by 20 years with no input from the child?
I mean, do they seriously love it? The children, I mean. Do the two year olds love to be spray-painted with a tan, forced to wear a wig, and put on makeup? Do they love to be shoved out on to a stage, and forced to do some hoochie mama dance routine?
