Why? Why in the world would parents do this to their little girls? Poor things getting brained washed, IMO, and lets face it, its not what it used to be. I was watching a couple of episodes of a particular show and I was amazed at what they let the kids do. I have always been against little girls and makeup...just looks creepy. And under all of that makeup some have discolored or even eczema on their young skin, what are these kids going to look like when they get older? Come to think of it, I would love to see what a former pageant girl looks like.
