Argument: Absurdly young kids are being entered into pageants

Issue Report: Child beauty pageants


“Child beauty pageants demoralizing.” The OHS Charger. February 26th, 2011: “Envision this: perfectly teased hair. Perfectly straight, pearly white teeth. Perfectly applied lip gloss, fake lashes, mascara, bronzer, blush, foundation, powder, and eye shadow. Perfectly even spray tan. A big poofy, brightly colored dress with matching heels. No, you’re not imagining a beauty queen in her teens to mid-twenties. You’re envisioning a 3-year-old.”
