France might ban child beauty pageants and padded bras for girls

It’s not sounding good for a French version of the infamous reality show Toddlers & Tiaras. And Suri Cruise might want to cancel that trip to France, or at least leave her kitten heels at home

Today, a French senator issued a report aimed at stopping the “hyper-sexualization” of young children.

The parliamentary report, Against Hyper-Sexualisation: A New Fight For Equality, calls for a ban on beauty pageants and child-size adult clothing, such as padded bras and high heels, for girls under age 16, according to the London Guardian.

Senator Chantal Jouanno’s report is a reaction to the promiscuous photos of a 10-year-old model that ran in the French edition of Vogue last year. The images of Thylane Loubry Blondeau, sporting high heels and a seductive look while sprawled out over a tiger skin rug, sparked international outrage.

In the report, Jouanno said young girls were being presented as “sexual candy” and that it was “contrary to the dignity of the human being.”

In an interview with the French newspaper Le Figaro, she said that she’s concerned about the nomalization of images in the media that are virtually child pornography.

There seems to be irony in this. The Americans are known for being prudish while France is a country where the women are scantily clad—yet the French are the ones who are putting a stop to 13-year-olds walking down catwalks in stilettos. Here in America, we’ve got children dressing up as hookers on national television and major clothing companies selling padded bikini tops to 8-year-olds. Yet a U.S. government official has yet to stand up. Should it be the job of the government to stop the sexualization of girls?

Children should be children, not pretend to be adults. Beauty pageants for children is just sick. It's not right.

Don't know where you get your news from, obviously not from France but from your US:  (edit: No I'm wrong it's a mis-quoted interview with someone in America from a reporter from La Figaro...



I blame the parents.  Or the parent singular.  Or the lack of parenting.  The want of money or glamour or fame.  Or the daft mother with dire issues.




& I don't think you ought to be posting that kind of horrid pic on our www for Europeans to see.  We have morals.  (sarcasm intended)






Controversiallly, in France they have already banned the Arab hi jab,

so they'll obviously have to do the same with American child porn

Good for France. Children should be allowed to be just be and act as children and not be objectified via beauty pageants which seek to make them appear as sexualized mini adults. Frankly, these pageants are repulsive.

plastic doll a goal?


I'm going to France next month, Gay Paris for 6 days...  I'll have to report back to you.

In England they allow all that American style X-Factor, Got Talent and now even Child Beauty Pageants.
It's awful.  


We also here allow the full-on burka and it's all rife, rampant.  

Everywhere you look there are white children and their mothers dressed in nothing looking like sluts with fatness hanging out all over everywhere and tattoos - and then there are the other lot wearing black full-on head to toe and they have even more children than the white trash.  


Here's me, I'm in the minority, jeans and a tshirt, no kids, no thanks, I have travel plans.


I hear they don't allow the fullon burka in France, so I'm looking forward to seeing that, it'd be different.  Just nice hair and colourful and stylish dress perhaps?  I'm so looking forward.

If I see a 4-year old with makeup on I'll spit.  I'm just about retching as I type this...  Imagine what proper religious fully dressed women think of those slutty make-upped hair-sprayed dyed fake American-style pre-pubescent children?  I feel sorry for the parents...

No wonder we're all going slowly mad


If this sort of stuff you've posted is to be deemed acceptable or mainstream I'd like to protest.


xL

please please don't post any more pix of 5 year olds in lipstick sexually pouting, it's horrific.

Oh STella how mad... I've been saying "I've no idea" as my standard staid response for a few weeks.


It's not exactly a great answer, but it lets you think then come back at it if needs be...

Honestly, I've no idea about France banning youngsters doing teen beauty etc. 

It's totally beyond my scope of ken.

‘Toddlers & Tiaras’ scandal: 4-year-old Destiny smokes cigarette on stage

This is Destiny. She’s 4 years old—and one of the young girls on TLC’s infamous Toddlers & Tiaras reality show about the world of child beauty pageants.

On last night’s episode, Destiny shocked viewers as she swaggered onto the stage with a wild nest of teased hair, a puffy black leather jacket and a cigarette between her lips.

“Don’t forget to smoke,” Lisa reminded her daughter before her performance.

Lisa says the cigarette was fake and an important part of her daughter’s costume. Destiny was dressed to look like Olivia Newton John’s tough-girl character Sandy in the musical movie Grease.

“Sandy comes out and throws down a cigarette, so Destiny’s going to do that,” Lisa explains. “We feel like that’s part of acting, and it’s a part of the routine so we’ve added it in there…”

Toddlers & Tiaras is in its fourth season and has created a stir ever since it first aired in 2009. The reality show offers a look into the controversial, sometimes horrifying, world of child beauty pageants. Episodes follow overzealous parents who push their toddlers to wax their eyebrows, wear heavy makeup, and sport fake breasts in a quest to win sparkly crowns.
But the show hit a new low—that’s lower than low—with last night’s episodes. Even if the cigarette was fake and Destiny was “acting,” there’s absolutely nothing cute or charming about this little girl’s performance. Destiny set a terrible example for other children who might have been watching the show and didn’t realize the cigarette was a prop. She made smoking look cool and fun—and she’s only 4 years old. Four years old! But Destiny isn’t the one to blame—it’s her mother’s fault. She’s the one who is exploiting her daughter and forcing her to be a part of all this nonsense.

We can also blame TLC that’s putting this trash on television. I can only imagine that viewership is down for Toddlers & Tiaras and TV execs are putting pressure on the show’s producers to create even more sensationalized, extreme situations to catch the attentions of Americans who have an insatiable appetite for trashy TV. What can we expect next? Has this show hit its lowest point yet? Or will it going even lower?
