Is Toddlers and Tiaras Disguised Child Abuse?

I despise toddler beauty pageants.  Not just because they sexualize per-pubescent girls, but because they are grooming these kids to be walking disasters when they grow up.

This video on Young Turks shows the really weird side of this whole "reality TV" mess and especially the sad, odd and somewhat frightening example of "Honey Boo-Boo Child".  Watch it and tell me what the producers of that show and the kids parents are doing isn't child abuse?  If she lives to be 16 I will be amazed.

If you Google child abuse "honey boo boo" you will find a lot of negative references specific to this. (see the search link is below)

Point is: We as a society are mis-treating our children, all in the name of the paycheck.

And that's a paycheck I really would never want, especially if the child was my own.
