    Default France Considers Banning Child Beauty Pageants




    It looks like Toddlers & Tiaras: The French Edition won't be happening anytime soon.

    The French government has issued a report calling for a ban on child beauty pageants, as well as padded bras and high heels on young girls. The proposed ban comes after 10-year-old Thylane Blondeau showed up in heels and a provocative outfit in Vogue Paris last year and sent the world into a tizzy fit. The senator who wrote the report, Chantal Jouanno, has said that the sexualization of young girls is "contrary to the dignity of the human being" and is a step backward for gender equality.

    A ban like this doesn't sound like the worst idea, though parts of it seem rather tricky to enforce. But it could have serious consequences. Just think of all the little French aspiring Honey Boo Boo Childs who are already out their guzzling their Jus Spécial in preparation for stardom. Their dreams will be crushed, but it's probably worth it to restore the "dignity of the human being."

    All of God's children are not beautiful. Most of God's children are, in fact, barely presentable.

    That is disgusting, a 10 year old!! Should be illegal everywhere. Her mother should be brought up on charges. Then shot!

    The first picture isn't so bad. The second is seductive. I don't like that. There are plenty of cute and fun ways for a child to model.
