Beauty Pageant.

We have some good family friends, The Samuels, and their youngest Rachel is totally into the show Toddlers and Tiaras

She loves all the glitz and glam to it! She has always wanted to be in one. So yesterday she was over playing with Alexis and i thought it would be fun to do their hair and makeup full on. I told them i would do it as close as i could to the real thing. And Devin Palmer was over with Alyssa and they put on a cute little Beauty Pageant for them.

My Father in Heaven, you are grossly negligent in contributing to the vapid, materialistic, and downright glitzy whoring that is toddler or young girl beauty contests. What a sick television show, and what a sick attempt on your part to encourage such a sinful and shocking manipulation and sexing of our young children. What would Joseph Smith say about this? Facetiousness aside, you are a terrible mother and a sorry human being. I suppose you think Bratz dolls are cute and that you buy a load of them for your daughter and her friend. I think being a stay-at-home mother has liquified your brain—if it was not already, like I suspect. Shame on you, you sick bastard.

I just want to leave a note to the person who left the anonymous comment. This blog belongs to my sweet daughter who is 15 YEARS OLD. She was having fun with her younger sister and her friend. What little girl doesn't like to have their make up and hair done?We in no way "encourage sinful and shocking manipulation and sexing of our young children". This was just two sisters playing dress up.
As for you, who do you think you are to judge people this way? I personally do not like beauty contests, but do not feel it is my place (or yours) to tell people how to raise their children.
I wish you would have left the comment with out being anonymous so I could have contacted you directly. I just feel like you owe my daughter an apology.

I completely agree with Lisa. I am 16 years old, and I am the friend of the girl who owns this blog.
To the anonymous blogger, who obviously has no self-esteem, because you would have stood in front of all of us with your name if you truly did... your language and tone towards this girl is unbelievable! I have never been so appalled by something that an adult has said. If you truly believe and love our father in heaven than you should understand that this is not, in any way, the way you behave or talk towards another human being. We are all his children and I am ashamed that you would even bring it to this level. Your opinions on who you are and how you raise your family is absolutely up to you... but you have no right to sit here and attack this girl for playing with her sister. I don't understand how someone with such an amazing vocabulary can be so senseless and foolish. You act as if you really care for the well-being of the person who owns this blog, but If you really cared about how this person was, you would have read the blog, and realized your actually speaking to a 15 year old. I can tell that you are a sorry human being my friend.
I feel sorry for you. :)

I agree with both of you in some respects, this whole thing of "beauty" contests really objectify women, teaches them from a young age to make comparisons, judgments and to compete with each other according to their physical characteristics, No1 realises the affect all forms of the media have on the pyschological well being of teenagers and young people that are still coming to grips with themselves and their ideals- from anorexic(but extremely envied?) "super-models" to unrealistic idols. Like barbie, who's physical proportions cannot be emulated.- Self-esteem issues are common place in our society, these pageants do not, although temporarily enjoyed, help... Just a quick DYK, did you know that researchers have found that the images of women in magazines(general trend) cat be replicated in real life, their bodies have been photoshopped so severely that they cant fit more than half a liver and bowel system... This is what happens when people cant see the beauty that stares at them through the mirror:(
