They have an option no body obligates them to go to beauty pageants. They go themselves and if they go nobody makes them wear make up theres natural pageants where they dont have to wear make up or heels nobody obligates the girls to wear heels or dresses they have an option and an opinion and if they dont like them thats their opinion because many people choose to vote against it but they dont have to go girls go because they want to learn from their experiences and from every loss they learn more and how to do better
I think beauty pageants are good for girls because they girls get rid of stage fright. They are also good because the girls can win money and prizes if they do good. Even if they don't win they the high title they still have a chance to win lower titles.
I have been in a pageant and i love it! People only know what glitz are! They dont stop to think " oh! Wht if there is apageant that you can have NO makup in?" THERE IS!! They are called natural pageants! I love pageants and feel sorry for the girls who do not have the oppourtunnity to go into 1
-Beauty pageants provide opportunities for girls who are interested and are likely to succeed in this area
-Girls must have self-control and discipline to follow the strict life they follow (dieting, exercising, etc.)
-Despite some misconceptions, beauty pageants ARE NOT ALL ABOUT BEAUTY! Participants are given a chance to show off their talent. And often, participants are given challenging questions to answer, which they must use their brains to answer.
-In conclusion, beauty pageants are good for females. Though there is a lot of foundation, mascara, and money involved, beauty pageants really give people a chance to show who they are.
Many pageants now reward winners with scholarships, and it can make a path for other careers such as dancing, modeling, singing, and other fine arts. Many pageant winners have also used their pageantry skills to go into the field of politics. Also, it can make competitors new friends and a different perspective on competition.
I have had other mothers tell me that my daughter would be happier in soccer or softball. Nope - she likes to sing, dance and act. Pageants are her competitive venue.
Pageants teach the same values as sports - goal setting, dedication, sportmanship, etc. They also encourage a very "me" oriented generation to champion a cause in their community, to volunteer and to fund raise. I have seen girls who were very wrapped up in themselves become very wrapped up in the needs of others because a PAGEANT encouraged them to look beyond themself. I don't see sports teams doing volunteer work, or fundraising for the community. The only fundraisier they do if for themselves
They are good because they show who you really are, not just because you're pretty. This is why to win the 'big crown' you need to enter talent. Judges base your score more on the talent you have, rather than what you look like. Don't judge girls based on T.V shows like.. Toddlers and Tiaras. (Don't lie, I know that's what you're thinking of.)
They also help your self esteem. It gets rid of stage fright, and helps you become more... At peace with yourself. And if you think they are sexist.. You're wrong. Because boys enter them, too.
Well, most of you judge beauty pageants by shows such as toddlers & tiaras, when we have to remember that those are brats just running around looking pretty :P Don't lie, you know you did it. X3 Beauty pageants can make someone more confident about themselves, and helps them to learn who they are, and might help them figure out what they want as a career. No hate, don't sass ;)
It helps to give girls confidence and get rid of stage fright. And of you won it could help with financial problems. If the girl has low self esteem it could fix those problems. And in most pageants each girls gets a small prize like sometimes they get candy, flowers, or a small trophy.
Beauty pageants are not what they were. Now they emphasize
achievement, and promote themselves as scholarship programs. For a
self-confidant girl with good looks and a quick wit, a beauty pageant might
make an interesting challenge. However, for a more introverted person, who does
not like to show off, and who likes to think a while before she speaks, a
modern pageant might still be a trial.
The reason I am against these pageants are the fact that girls are pushed to the limit. Their faces are caked in make up, they are forced to wear awful, godly clothing and their parents are so over the top! The only time a girl should be in a pageant is if she wants too.
NO beauty pageants are sexist! They make girls wear stiff, sparkly dresses and parents spend thousands just for their child to get judged for beauty and it lowers their self esteem if some random person doesn't give them first or second. It may help with stage fright and trying something new but it is a major waste of money because the prize is worth less than what you paid. It also makes girls and boys cocky and over-confident if they win most beautiful/handsome by chance. Not to mention it is teaching them to try and be perfect which can lead to depression, starvation and other conditions. But the overall problem is the parents. They work their kids too hard, want so much from them, and may make their child feel under appreciated because their parents want so much more than they can even offer.
Should girls be judged on what they look like or how they walk or what they dress like. Now I'm not saying it is 100% wrong because they do make girls competitve which is good in some ways however what happened to not judging a book by it's cover or real beauty comes from inside!
Beauty pageants abuse a girls' talents just to win a measly prize! We're subjecting them to something that is fake! Beauty pageants aren't real! They're planned by people to create competition between people who only care about winning. Everyone takes beauty pageants too seriously! And I think that the TV shows, like Toddlers and Tiaras, are basically just influencing little girls to become Barbie dolls.
I think that beauty pageants are not a positive thing for girls to take part in. There is too much emphasis placed on physical beauty, as opposed to the other characteristics that lead girls to grow up into responsible, "good", positive members of society and people in general.
At a young age, girls are encouraged by these pageants to put on a lot of make-up, focus a lot on their clothing choices and their hairstyles. It's very superficial and focused outwardly. And it enforces the idea that girls should be valued for their looks, and being the "prettiest" in comparison to other girls is in fact, the way to achieve or prove self-worth.
Pageants are too focused on the exterior and pose a risk at leaving a lot of girls with lower self-esteem in the later stages, especially since the competitions are focused on being prettier in comparison to the other contestant (which is something girls and women already struggle enough with, growing up in a society that tells women they need to be beautiful to be loved, wanted or worth-while).
Doesn't everyone carry on about how one should not judge another? Well that's all the pageants do! You either win or you lose, and not everyone can win. It kills children's self esteem and it can cause further damage for their mental stability in the future. How can you even judge a little child like that when they haven't even gotten a chance to form themselves as a person! Another factor in this is that it depends what kind of beauty pageant it is; if it's Miss America then that is more acceptable but when it comes to little kids it should be completely abolished.
I think that these pageants can be harmful to girls, especially very young ones. I know some of these girls may go on to become professional models or whatever, but a lot of them won't. These pageants plant the idea in their minds that beauty and the way other people view them are the only things that count. I think this can easily lead to self-esteem issues very early on in their lives.
The fact that the people allow all of the women to compete for their beauty is unjust. Young girls would have a fix mindset that they have to change themselves in order to be praised and be liked by all. Which minimizes their self esteem and increase their willingness to change themselves. Also, they allow man to fantasize about adultery.
The children are forced to do things that they don't want to and as a matter of fact the kids are not educating during the pageants, they are only focusing on their looks. My opinion is that kids should be at least twelve to compete in these silly beauty competitions.
Many of these kids 'choices' to participate in these pageants are highly influenced by their parents. Some can miss out on homework due to rigorous routines and practice that goes into pageantry. They can also miss out on having what is healthy for most children to have: a social life, like playing with other kids, sleepovers, group and teamwork in school or even sports.
