The Learning Channel & Discovery Communications and its properties are predominant places to find informative television programming that leads to learning and discovery, exploration of family & parenting, home projects, cooking, science, history, and much more. It is a destination for men, women and children of all ages to learn, explore & discover – according to the network’s description of the channels.

According to the National Cable & Telecommunications Association, The Learning Channel reaches a subscriber audience of over 100 million viewers and is amongst the top 10 cable programming networks.

Sadly, the show "Toddlers & Tiaras" has quickly hit the air waves, and has gained a significant viewer following. The show depicts mothers and fathers on the quest of exploiting their toddlers from as young as 16 months of age in regional pageant shows for fame, money, crowns and Reality TV.

This is an explicit tale of how TLC and Discovery Communications are virally promoting in our society and our families, on their cable channels as well as on their websites – a show that crosses the line of child abuse and sexual exploitation of infant children.

The parents of the show “Toddlers & Tiaras” are caught on camera holding down their infants forcefully in order to alter their appearance and dress them in preparation for pageants. The toddlers on this show are forced to wear dentures, hair extensions and wigs – regardless of the child’s complaints and terrifying protests through tears and screams. These infants are given “special juice” cocktails prepared by their parents of Red Bull, apple juice & cola so they can “perform” on stage instead of taking naps and drinking milk. These children have been forced and given treatments of injection face fillers, hair removal, along with countless hours of make-up applications. These infants are doused in spray tan chemicals on camera and are dressed up with prosthetic breast implants in costumes that are obscene and revealing to perform “sexy walks” for the pageant runways. These toddlers are trained for hours by their parents to walk and smile “sexy” for the cameras and pageant judges.

This show is fueling pedophile tendencies in the home and across the internet. It is child pornography at its worst, condoned and aired on a top national cable programming network. This exploitation of children must be stopped.

The parents of the “Toddlers & Tiaras” children are also caught on camera with countless questionable & abusive behaviors that are harming the welfare and best interest of these children, not to mention the deterioration of moral fiber that TLC viewers are being exposed to.

This is parenting at its worst, and it is human trafficking through reality television.

This petition is a formal plea to mothers, fathers, families, politicians, social workers, educators, newscasters, TV executives and social media marketers to aid in the quest to ban this show from the cable network airways for the protection and welfare of all children & families.

      The Internet and social networking sites have unfortunately become a weapon against women, girls and female children. With revenge porn is often faking or criminal material of stalkers, psychopaths, rapists on the Internet, that must not be forgotten. For this reason, revenge porn must be punished very hard as a criminal offense and the relevant material should be removed at the request of the victim immediately from the Internet.

      Female stalking victims are often faced with sexual violence in many forms. The main reason of stalking is often that they did not want certain affairs with some kind of horny men. I know many cases and I was even concerned too with cyberstalking in this kind, that these women then get rape porn of the worst kind sent as cyberstalking or the men make perverse lies in the internet about the victim. Not only the offender participates in it, but often many/all friends of his social networks, to terrorize a woman were for these men fun. The question is why did nobody put these cowardly beasts not long in a prison! Quite simply, the victim is not taken seriously until they are raped, dead or beganing to commit suicide or coming in psychiatry. There are enough cases in the media world. It must finally be stopped, this cowardly monsters must be punished and the victims are protected! Revenge porn is a crime!

      I can every woman and every girl only guess to give no naked photos or movies in male hands, because experience has shown that this is to be published at the end of the relationship on the Internet. Of myself there are no photos or movies, because I am a too cautious person, but I was confronted with these things through a stalker! I only learned of such things as I was getting SM porn mails which was send to me of a stalker from his girlfriends and probably also his wife, complaints didn't brought me further. I also have learned that under my name libelous posts and ads were switched on the Internet and some things I could let remove, others not! This unpunished crime of perverts and psychopaths is heinous and it is time to pursue this legally tough by laws because revenge porns destroys many female lifes forever!

      Unfortunately, the porn industry contributes to the brutalization of men with sadistic torture porn, rape porn on. And not enough with this women hating unprotected sex is always shown, the porn industry still contributes to the spread of sexually transmitted diseases and AIDS. Infections of porn starst are always covered up, but there are cases where a male porn actor has infected hundreds of colleagues with AIDS. In addition, 90% of all porn is sadistic, misogynistic, the porn actresses are all very young, disgusting practices such as mass rape, BDSM, simultaneous multiple penetration of vagina, anus and mouth, which may be associated with serious injuries, are portrayed as normal. Vomiting, pleading, begging and crying of porn actresses are portrayed as normal. This is pure women hatred and should be banned worldwide! Many men want sex not in this kind, even not women! Because if men are wanted oral sex and anal sex all the time they should even times swallow their own sperm and getting tooth damage and injuries in the neck area and can make anal sex with huge dildos and vibrators and then they know what avoid injury, and bleeding of the intestines until incontinence means. Every normal man will then take considerate of a woman and those which want cruel and dangerous practices belong to jail!

      “I write for those women who do not speak, for those who do not have a voice because they were so terrified, because we are taught to respect fear more than ourselves. We've been taught that silence would save us, but it won't.”

      ― Audrey Lorde

      "The scriptures present a God who delights in genocide, rape, slavery, and the execution of nonconformists, and for millennia those writings were used to rationalize the massacre of infidels, the ownership of women, the beating of children, dominion over animals, and the persecution of heretics and homosexuals. Humanitarian reforms such as the elimination of cruel punishment, the dissemination of empathy-inducing novels, and the abolition of slavery were met with fierce opposition in their time by ecclesiastical authorities and their apologists. The elevation of parochial values to the realm of the sacred is a license to dismiss other people’s interests, and an imperative to reject the possibility of compromise.”

      ― Steven Pinker,

      This is just wrong. Simply put, parents are whoring their children for fame. Let the child be a child.
