They shouldn't have to put up with making themselves 'perfect' as they are too young and the damages that may happen when they think they have to be perfect is damaging.

Children should be children, not pushed into adult like beauty pageants too soon!

US style child beuqaty pagenats make a travesty of everything that is important to healthy child self development and self esteem. The cupie doll parodies of objectified femininity would be regarded as simply grotestque if they didn't mask deep misogyny and paedophilia. We should not allow this circus of child victims to take place in Australia.

This is child abuse loud and clear. And the argument that children want to compete in pageants is not legitimate. Children who say this have been brainwashed. Would you give in to the ridiculous and harmful demands of your children??? Children who are put in pageants by their immature parents are being unfairly stripped of their childhood and carefree natures.

It sexualizes our children. Kids should be kids for as long as possible. They are too young to understand now and their parents should know better. But sadly they don't.

I believe pageants as neglectful and abusive to the needs and development of these children.

Oh please NO!
The sexualisation of little girls and pedophiles. This is so damaging for children. Please do not bring it to Australia.
