Saving America's Girls: Banning Child Beauty Pageant Abuse
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!
