Everyday over 25,000 girls compete in over 3,000 beauty pageants all across America. While some people believe it mayhelp some girls to fell "pretty", it in many ways will cause permanent damage to the self image. Yes, I know the girl who won may feel as beautiful as the prettiest jewel ever exposed, but what about the girls who didn't win? How do they feel? Who's thinking about them? Some girls were interviewed (yes, the one's that didn't win)and they were asked why they think the didn't win, some said:



"Because I wasn't pretty enough."
"Because nobody liked my talent."
"Because I didn't use the make-up mommy got."
"Because I don't have what she has." (pointing to the girl who won)

Things like this inspire jealousy, low self-esteem, and self destructive behavior such as bulima, anorexia, self mutilation, self isolation, social anxiety, compulsive excersize disorder, botox, self tanning/oil tanning, OCD, binges, drug abuse, monotonous personality disorder, bitterness, perfectionalism, social phobia, sucidal behaviors, etc. PLEASE SIGN THE PETITION, SAVE THE GIRLS OF AMERICA!!! STOP THE ABUSE OF YOUNG GIRLS!! PLEASE, THEY NEED YOU!

    Parents are forcing their children to compete at beauty pageants and claim that their kids really like it. Also, the parents whiten the teeth of their TODDLERS, wax their eyebrows, spray them with spray-tan, put fake eyelashes on their eyelashes and sexualize their toddlers clothes, behavior and dancing. Just for the parents' fun or the confirmation that their kid is beautiful... CPS should really be on the parents toes. Putting in on TV on a network called The Learning Channel (TLC) is ridiculous. I won't be shocked when I hear that a parent allowed plastic surgery on his or her kid to win a pageant but I will be sad because I know that these parents have no limits to win and can't see that fact anymore.
