Child beauty pageants may soon be banned in the US, after a surprise vote in the US Senate that rattled the pageant industry and raised questions about how the US relate to girls' sexuality.
Such contests, and the made-up, dolled-up beauty queens they produce, have the power to both fascinate and repulse, and have drawn criticism in several Cities. US, with its controlling traditions, appears to be out front in pushing an outright ban.
US legislators stopped short of approving a measure banning anyone under 16 from modeling products meant for grown-ups -- a sensitive subject in a country renowned for its fashion and cosmetics industries, and about to host New York Fashion Week.

The proposed children's pageant amendment sprouted from a debate on a women's rights law. The legislation, approved by a vote of 58-42, must go to the House of Representatives for further debate and another vote.

Its language is brief but sweeping: "Organizing beauty competitions for children under 16 is banned." Violators -- who could include parents, or contest organizers, or anyone who "encourages or tolerates children's access to these competitions" -- would face up to two years in prison and 40,000 in fines.

Just think about it! How dare the Government tell us how to raise our children! We have personal rights and freedoms in this Country.

It is only a matter of time before something like this will make the Head Lines

I mean after all we had a Terrorist attack on US yesterday. 13 people killed. And the President refuses to talk about the fact that the shooter was a Muslim.
