Childrens pageants aren't fair anywhere. They are a form of child abuse and it will warp their little minds to fill peoples own ego. It will make sissies out of your little boys, they need to be fishing with their dad. You might as well put a leash on your kids and parade them around like a dog show. Gees, some people. No way should a child be put on display and judged. Why don't you parents and grandparents get on stage and turn tricks for some old fart judges?

Agreed. Pageants are just creepy. Let your kid spend the afternoon outside playing instead. I guarantee they would have more fun than being forced on a stage to be judged for their looks. Maybe teens wouldn't have so much self esteem issues if their moms didn't teach them from the beginning that they have to fit someone else's definition of pretty.

Don't think so. I have always had people tell me that I had a beautiful daughter. I didn't have to pay someone to tell me that, like you pageant lover people do.

You are exactly right, it's creepy. It's putting ones children on display for any sicko child molester or kidnapper to view. The parents names are given out at the events, not even thinking how easy they can be found. It's a shame that it's not safe these days for children to play outside without a grownup to be with them at all times. Any responsible parent knows how fast children can be out of their sight. Some people need to wake up and get over a cheap arse trophy and bragging stories of how a child preformed in front of some stupid judges. Pageants for children not of age to make that decision for themselves should be outlawed.

You know people can have an opposite opinion than you without being jealous?

Someone has to pay an entry fee for anyone in a pageant. You are the one that needs to think outside your tiny, need an ego boost boxed in mind.

LOL that's funny. Just like you need an ego boost to sit on Topix website day in and day out, hide your identity, putting your opinion where it doesn't belong nor does anyone care & dogging other's (weither you know them or not)! We all really know your just trying really hard to make yourself feel good for your sorry life that you truly live!! Your scared ass wouldnt tell one person that's been on the site in person what you say on here. Its sad to know we have grown Men and woman who should enjoy life but instead sits behind a computer with a fake name and trys to enjoy life the best way! So sad you have to love behind a fake name just to enjoy life!

It's not surprising that Una would be offended by something that involves beauty. Understandable, really.

No, The Great Una Farter has other morons on Topix to attend to, other than you. I find my computer much easier to use sitting in front of it. Do you sit behind yours? My name is Ted F. Fartinsky. What's your name? Lies??? You wish they were lies.

No, they are not fair. Unless this crap has changed the judges are local. It's not like they are going to import movie stars.

It's sad that the ugly parents try to fulfil their flunky lives through their children. I am offended that little children are abused period.

It really sucks that I have to appear to agree w/you know who but here goes...Not only are these pageants not fair but they are potentially harmful to the minds and hearts of your little ones. Winners as well as non-winners.

The only way to fix this is for judging to be done by a set of the kids peers, from sepreate counties. While this may not be much more fair, it is less unfair.

One more thing, at the conclusion of these pageants we often see children acting out. Children that only moments before were adults and parents.

Just the Miners take on beauty pageants.
