Baby Beauty Pageants
I watch Toddlers & Tiaras. I’ve seen HBO Documentaries about kids in beauty pageants. It’s a fascination to attempt to understand the mentality of making your baby or toddler or little child look like a fahking Flavor of Love contestant.
There’s a whole business behind these pageants. Flippers (fake teeth), hair extensions, “glitz” dresses, fake tanning, and touched-up head-shot photos. It’s not enough to dress your baby up and slap on 2-1/2 pounds of makeup and extensions. You must also touch up the photo to make her look even more artificial.
Go ahead. Take your time. Compare the two pics.
Makes me sad for humankind.
