girl power?

girl power...i believe very strongly in just that...society has "taken" some power away from us and it seems that some of us gladly give it up...yesterday i spoke to a friend of mine...her daughter is 6 years old...she will this weekend be competing in a freakin beauty pageant...i ask you...i nearly popped a vein...i don't know why mom's do this...really i don't...she was telling me about the new outfits she bought...and listen to this...how cute and sexy she looked wearing them...i almost yelled down the line...s~e~x~y...a six year old is not, i repeat not, supposed to look sexy in any way...for fucks sakes...ag no man...really...people are seriously fucked sideways sometimes...here's this sweet, innocent little girl...and she will be walking around in her sexy outfits...because her mommy thinks it's cute...and what happens if she gets second or third place...what do you tell her...sorry sweetheart...the other girl was prettier than you...exactly my point!...all little girls are beautiful beyond all comprehension...their innocence is precious...why oh why would you want to damage your daughters confidence in any way...why would you want to do this to your kid...it's just not right...it's actually sick and i hate beauty pageants for that reason...sure there are some super beautiful people out there...and if they are sixteen...maybe eighteen...and they are zit-free with a unquenchable thirst to parade themselves in front of the whole world...let them...but little girls should be protected from shit like this...what message are you sending your baby...what damage we do...let me count the ways...
