Like Dangling A Gem In Front Of A Thief

By now some of you may have seen or heard of a "controversial" video sweeping across the Internet of five, 7 year old girls, scantily clad dancing to Beyonce's song "Single Ladies".

I will not link it here because I absolutely abhor it. It is an atrocious and completely inappropriate display by children of that age competing in a dance competition.

The girls are wearing red and black lacy panties and bra like top and thigh high stockings. Everything else is exposed.

They are well choreographed and are all talented dancers, however, the choreography clearly has them gyrating and moving in such ways that are less than appropriate for 7 year old girls in a public forum.

When the parents started to hear they were being scrutinized, their response,

"there is nothing inappropriate about our girls dancing in a competition..."

So here is my question -

Have we become just that desensitized to what are appropriate social guidelines should be or are we just that plain STUPID???

Which one is it?

Either way, it's not a compliment.

These parents, and anyone who would allow that sort of display in a dance competition by girls that young is either desensitized by what has become the unfortunate "accepted" morals and values of our current generation, or just too stupid to realize what they are now contributing to in terms of the moral destruction of our civilization.

It does not matter if you have a religious edict that spells out what your moral beliefs should be. It has nothing to do with religion. As far as I am concerned, it is common sense.

In this frightening world full of perverts and pedophiles and overt sex that can even CONFUSE ADULTS, why the hell would you sex up your child like that?

It diminishes them.

In fact, their talent in dance was completely lost to me when my jaw dropped at the sight of their playboyesque lingerie and how far they could split their legs and how suggestively they could sway their hips.

And let me remind you, I am NOT a pedophile or a pervert. So if it was that blatant to me (and quite disturbing) just imagine what is going through the minds of all those perverts.

PEOPLE - our children are the most precious "things" to us. At least, they should be.

Would you dangle your priceless gems in front of a thief?

Why would you put your most precious item on display like that?

It boggles my mind that our society has become THAT desensitized.

I shudder to think how much worse it can get.

I didn't see it, but they could also just be white trash. these crazy white trash mommas have been putting their kids in shows like this for years. Did you ever see Toddlers and Tiaras? Jon Benet Ramsey? it's gross.

It's sad to think of these parents who exploit their children. I dont even know why they have these stupid competitions and pageants for girls at such a young age!!!

it starts younger and younger these days-I totally agree with you!! said...

oh, how I hear you!

Anyone who cannot see the huge problem with this needs to take a good look at their sensibility and ask themselves what it means to be a kid.

Come on! Let's protect our little children!

I read an article that had an interview with one of the parents. She claimed the dance moves were from Alvin and the Chipmunks the Squeakuel. I'm sorry, I don't remember seeing anything like that in the movie!! They must have seen a different version.
