I was reading this http://shine.yahoo.com/healthy-living/miss-america--fat----the-ugly-side-of-beauty-pageants-191837900.html it reminded me of this other article where they said that a lot of supermodels eat tissues to stay thin. All this made me think: What sane parent wants their daughter to do this when they grow up? I have 2 younger female cousins and I never want them to think that the only thing that matters in life is looks. I want them to know that kindness and perseverance is what really matters. It makes me almost sick to think that there are parents out there who want their daughters to grow up only to starve themselves in the name of "beauty". The pageant girls aren't even that pretty, they're so thin.
