Well, I cannot let it go anymore. I will not watch any programing on the The Learnig Channel until such a time as they discontinue airing this Toddlers & Tiaras reality series.
I am not calling for a boycott, not only do I think they are ineffective, but it seems pretty cocky to think anyone would do anything based on my opinion. But for me and mine, enough is enough!
These shows are child abuse on parade. These toddlers are praised beyond merit, then forced to be subjected to the preparation and focus of a pageant, even though they are screaming they "don't want to go today"!
They are in many cases not only made up to look like older girls, but at times are encouraged as they present themselves in bikinis and enough makeup to cause permanent neck damage...(sarcasm alert). Not to mention putting these little girls in danger of becoming the object of some sexual-homicidal stalker.
The only people that can possibly be watching these pageants are other lunatic parents, or perverts. What the hell are we allowing to go on here!
There is always a motive. After having a daughter in the same age group as the little girls in these pageants, I can tell you even though I don't personally understand it, these parents are, knowingly or not, pimping their daughters out. The parents either are filling some emotional hole left in their life in their childhood, or they like the Scholarships, Monetary Awards & Crowns won at these "contests". I have read of winning being up to $10,000 at some levels of this "soft child pornography ring". Whoops, did I just type that?
Well there it is. Why The Learning Channel will not be tuned to my TV. Others can do as they please, they generally do anyway.
As Usual, I could be wrong.
Just My Opinion. It would be an personal honor to me if you could foward this article to your friends and family. Maybe even TLC? Thanks a bunch, MD
