What are flippers?
Dentures for toddlers used in Beauty Pageants.
Flippers are used when baby teeth fall out, causing the child's smile to be no longer perfect enough for pageantry (God forbid a beauty queen would be allowed to stand on stage with a tooth missing, that would reveal to the audience this child is actually a living breathing human being, not some sort of trained robot). Disturbing.
What is a Glitz Padget?
A kids pageant which deliberately focuses on making the children older than they actually are
, through the use of spray on tans, diamonds, sparkles, wigs, hairpieces, and over the top makeup such as fake eyelashes. It's your basic child sexualization that this country has become accustomed to. Unacceptable.
What is Toddlers and Tiaras?
A reality show focused on the worst of the worst stage parents, who go about polishing, glossing, and prepping their little dollies to prance on stage. The kids cry as they are primped, while the mothers paste on their fake smiles and tell the viewing audience how much their child loves pageants.
Why is it then, when one does not win, the parent is the one balling, not the kid? Either these parents are living vicariously through their children, or they are just whacked. Scary.
Who is a very disturbed man?
This demented father who started planning pageantry for his daughter the moment he found out his wife was having a girl when pregnant, and is now a blogger for the program.
Who wants to ban this show?
Go nuts, there is already a Facebook group dedicated to the cause.
