they are disgusting. you dress up a 6 year old like a adult hooker, with fake teeth, a fake tan, fake hair, and revealing clothes, and make them parade around in front of a group of judges who decide if they are pretty or not. thats got to be good on their little self esteems. people wonder why we have pedophiles, maybe its the fact that we send practically naked kids out on stage with a face full of makeup, trying to make them look as adult as possible, and make them do provocative routines. we shouldnt be teaching these young children that makeup, fake hair, perfect teeth, and revealing clothes equal beauty. most of the time it is not the kids choice, their parents start them off as babies and they grow up thinking its normal, so of course they arent going to say they want to quit. i babysit a child beauty queen and she just stood in front of the mirror for ten minutes straight saying "whos so pretty, im so pretty, im perfect, everyone else is ugly, im so pretty so everyone loves me", its really disturbing.
