last summer, i watching on cable, i forget what it was called. it was mothers that take their daughters on beauty contests. the teacher, she was look like she ate few kids. she was big doggie.
it was cancelled, because the teacher wasn't faking, about verbal abusing the children.
she was contently very abusing the child, who was 6 to 8 years old. the mothers were no better than the teacher.the competition was high, but no reason why the child need to be in that competitive atmosphere.
my sisters were beauty pageants, they were before. when they were kids. i am sorry, my sisters were in dog shows, they won first and second prizes. my family dog, she was always came third place. she was an englisgh sheepdog. with my sisters's beauty, my dolly didn't have change against them.
my sisters dressed up in my mom's clothes, when they were kids. i remember when i really little i remember trying on my mom's high heels. i almost got a nose bleed i felt was soo tall, i can reach the ceiling.
my mom was 5'2, she was normal. it isn't like she had jump to reach the door's handle, she had jump to look out the hole of the door. i am joking, she used a step ladder to see out.
i thinking my mom , she would be giving an evil eye and give lecture on talking about her like this. normally, my mom was alive, we would getting ready see my sisters at the kennel on the annual bbq 4 th july kennelfest weekend in few days.
in 60's, when i was a kid, my sisters were taught hold a book over their head. they try to balance the book on their heads. i never could understand how snoby kids can hold a silver spoon in their mouths, then they grew up as an adult. the silver spoon would stick up and out their asses.
little girls should have fun, dressing up like their mothers. little girls need role models. i don't think really models, that are really interest, i think like put on make up.
putting on war paints to dress up like their mothers does to face the business world. that more competition than beauty pageants. in 60's, it probably taboo that mothers. that mothers were had a job, but motherhood, not good enough to a pernment job for them. these days, that make no sense that june clever or carol brady is the kind of life, my mom had to face in 60's.
there is a lot of women, want more out of life or force to have job to make an end it. women that juggle between motherhood and career, that really doesn't need a man in their life, or even they do. i find them impress out of respect.
i like to think that maybe who believe that motherhood is more career than a regular job is more important than being a woman. as a man, when i was growing up, that i had force see men believe that women , were better stayed in the kitchen and bedroom. it is sad that are women don't think or have courage to be independent on their own.
i question how important these child pageant contests. they for child or the mothers. i keep thinking of joan crawford and coat hanger, what happen to her in childhood?
it seem that child beauty pageants has a good intent to help little girls to get values to teach them to act to better woman than other little girls who doesn't these pageants.
since, we are little we force to compete with each others. in society, in schools, it seem like parents want their child. it in certain society classes, it demand not request to put your child in sort of contest or pageants for the parent to acceptable.
where i went to school in a public rich snobby environment, my parents were middle class. my high school class, you were rich, grades were a, or on some type of afternoon sport or school programs, you fit in.
their stigma that child beauty pageants have over mothers, who enter their daughters. is really healthy for either one of them? or the pageants are design for what society or society classes wants women to be more than men wants.
maybe it not man's fault that that women need to be a second rate citizen in backward times before. man can accept modern independent women, but the society take longer to accept them.
maybe society or what man have been taught or the idealism. that man need to be in command, not over women. in sense, of control, as acceptable. i am not blame man are blind or force to believe that women, or the fact that women are force or have change to fit with man . but not their equal.
the society is compete at fault in this matter, when will society accept women are more than stepford wives?
