    Default France 24 : "France to ban '******ised' child beauty pageants?"

    [*******#333333][FONT=arial][SIZE=2]The French Senate voted early Wednesday to ban beauty pageants for children under 16 – and to impose up to two years in prison and steep fines for adults who try to enter children into such a contest.[/SIZE]

    [*******#333333][FONT=arial][SIZE=2]It looks like the French won’t be getting their version of “Little Miss Sunshine” or “Here Comes Honey Boo Boo” anytime soon.[/SIZE]
    [SIZE=2]France’s Senate voted early Wednesday to ban beauty pageants for children under 16, and to punish any adult who tries to enter a child into such a contest with up to two years in prison and a steep 30,000-euro fine.[/SIZE]

    [SIZE=2][*******#333333][FONT=arial]The amendment is part of a broader bill on women’s rights, which will now proceed to the National Assembly, French Parliament’s lower house, for debate and another vote.[/FONT][/COLOR][/SIZE]

    My take : about damn time. I despise parents who do that, projecting their frustrated ambitions on their kids who don't seem to realize the implications. I once saw "Tiara and Toddlers". It was the saddest thing ever...

    Heard an interview with a psychologist, who worked a few years at a state hospital for involuntarily admitted sex offenders, mind you they weren't defined as inmates or patients, but as "individuals" and he said, they'd fill up the tv room, whenever toddlers in tiaras was about to air.

    And yes, of course, well done France. I support the decision 110%.

    This is a chilling thought...

    Good move by France!

    @ übermensch

    Luckily we don't have stuff like that. At least not that I know of.

    We value discipline more than beauty in kids. My son is in Kindergarten since last week. Yesterday he raised his finger at the dinner table because he wanted to say something. No joke! I was astonished and delighted at the same time, it works! We often have total chaos at home as he has the terrible twos at the moment.

    What good for is a child beauty contest anyway except for producing mentally disordered adults?
