Child beauty pageants discursive essay

Young girls who compete in pageants often look sexy by wearing makeup, hair extensions, “flippers” -- false teeth to hide baby teeth -- revealing outfits and by learning provocative poses and moves. Paul Peterson, president and founder of A Minor Consideration, said on “Good Morning America” that beauty pageants are “feeding the sex industry.” Phillip Block, chairman of the Royal Australian and New Zealand College of Psychiatrists, concurs. Block told the Australian Associated Press, reported “Allure” magazine, that he supports a ban on child beauty pageants in Australia because pageants judge contestants on “sexualized ideals.” Being judged that way impacts mental and emotional development and affects self-esteem and body image, says Block.
