    Actually, this is very mean. She is a toddler, it is sad enough that her mom has dressed her up like this..but to criticize a little girl for being chubby is just horrible.

    First of all, let us not forget: These images are put up for public consumption. They are put there by the parent(s). So don't start cajoling GR members for commenting on the pictures. They were posted on the internet for the sole purpose of appealing to vanity. We eat vanity here at GossipRocks.

    And now, the point of this post...

    Perhaps we all need to look at the picture again.

    1) The child is chubby. That is an undeniable fact.
    2) Most children 0-3 years old still have their "baby fat."
    3) This picture is public domain.
    4) This picture was posted to receive accolades and praise from the public.
    5) Public opinion cannot be controlled.
    6) We love to snark on this forum.
    7) We love to snark on public domain pictures.
    8) Chubby children will be called "chubby."
    9) Being chubby isn't a bad thing.
    10) Vanity is a bad thing when it gets out of hand.
    11) Vain people don't like to be called "chubby."
    12) Calling attention to the chub is one way to keep vain people in check.




    So there. What else can you possibly expect? I mean... come one!

    Dallas- wasn't trying to point fingers at anyone at all, it just seems like so much more fun to bash the crazy pageant mommies

    but one thing I do want to know is why they have to dress them in those ridiculous outfits...... they're so tacky

    Dallas, I am all for a good crazy person bashing, be it a celebrity or a crazy ass mom..however, calling a toddler fat is just wrong.

    I totally agree. But they don't post their pictures so readily dammit!

    I don't think calling a toddler "fat" is wrong because toddlers usually are fat. Right? Or maybe I'm just used to seeing chubby Amurrican babies?

    But seriously. I have no problem calling a toddler 'fat' because I see nothing shameful in being a fat toddler. Pageant mummies, however, have a problem with the word 'fat.' And since it's an easy button to push, calling attention to their (perfectly naturally, healthfully) plump babies is just another way to poke at them and get them all riled up. *shrug* But I totally get where you're coming from. I understand your sensibilities, and I respect them.

    i agree. those children cannot help the fact that they are chubby, they cannot help the fact that their parents are living their dreams (koff) thru them. name calling kids are off limits, plain and simple. Its not the kids fault the parents posted pictures of them on the internet.

    Kids/toddlers ARE fat god damnit! They're supposed to be, they're not supposed to have nice shapely bodies.

    It'd be like getting offended over calling a toddler short.

    Chubby toddlers are adorable. I love the way they look
    So many of these kids are just beautiful without makeup and slutty outfits on...and they are going to grow up thinking they are ugly...and need to wear makeup and really revealing outfits and get trophys, just to be seen as beautiful...

    It's not her fault, it's her parents' fault.

    Even when she is? There's chubby, and there's fat. I think with all the fat children out there nowadays we've lost sight of what is a normal healthy weight for a small child. That child in those photos appears to be overweight.

    i would think pointing it out to the parents is a good idea, but outright name calling is wrong, which brings us back to this forum. we're adults and if a kid is reading the forum, the parent isn't doing their job. so in that case, its ok to call the children names i guess. i feel like Switzerland.
