I just saw this and am disgusted by it. The Mommy Files on SFGate.com wrote an article about this.
Obviously, parents put their daughters in these competitions. Obviously, adults taught them the routines. Why is this ok?!? The outfits alone are WAY too risque for young girls. Maybe I'm a prude, or maybe I'm just out of touch with "the times," but I would never, ever let my daughter wear this outfit and dance like that. INAPPROPRIATE. I'm shocked that any adult thought that this was the right thing to do by these girls. You could go on and on about how this just perpetuates the pressure that society places on girls to be perfect and sexy in order to be taken seriously. I won't do that. I am just appalled that this even happened.
