I threw away an hour of my life on TLC’s show, Toddlers and Tiaras. There are a ton of issues that could be brought to bear on this show–the least of which is the dynamic that comes with having some dude judge your daughter as she struts in clothes outside of her age range with motions that make kiddie pageants the number one wet dream of pedophiles.
The show is completely ridiculous, but what I quickly noticed was the large percentage of overweight and grossly unattractive moms who were vicariously living their lives through their spoiled and psycho-emotionally disturbed children. I find it no coincidence that mothers with ratty hair have transformed their daughters (presumably smaller and cuter versions of themselves) in a completely abortive attempt at gaining some sort of beauty-based fame.
…and we wonder why….nevermind.
