Cripes:

Move over Miss America! The Little Beauties are coming to town! They’re gorgeous, they’re talented, they’re six-years old and with the helping hand of eager moms, determined pageant coaches, fabulous spray tan artists and “flipper” (fake teeth) makers, not to mention a couple of Pixie Sticks for energy, these girls are taking the stage at pageants all over the Southeast U.S for the chance to win cash prizes and crowns!

Little Beauties: Ultimate Kiddie Queen Showdown is a one-hour documentary special that will take a light-hearted look into the wonderful world of children’s beauty pageants through the eyes of four, precocious six-year old girls. This documentary reveals the humor and love behind an American tradition; the always colorful characters on the pageant circuit; and the “sparkle” it takes to win a crown.

Six. These girls are six years old. There are some clips from the show here and here and here and here and here.

    Sorry, nothing against US culture or anything. But, whoever thought of this needs to be in prison.

    Totally with you, Annared. It’s basically a show designed for pedophiles, I’d say.

    I’m stunned. This is awful. One little girl is nicknamed “the flirt”!!! The teeth, the hair, the strange pageant guru guy who whispered that it’s basically all about “inner beauty” shining through….I could vomit. Disgusting. How is this legal?

    Little Pageant Queens

    I saw little girls on the TV last night
    all dressed up like whores.
    Mommies pimping them shamelessly;
    Daddies funding it proudly.
    I saw little girls who were overindulged and undereducated
    and Mommies who were vicarious onlookers,
    Or impudent facilitators
    of a crime against girls, women, society.
    I saw little girls on the TV last night
    wearing more makeup than clothes.
    I saw children act like livestock at the local 4-H
    And it made me sad.
