It blew my mind – toddlers and tiaras

Dear reader, whoever you are,

I hope to be able to share this little insight and help you realize the objective truth 🙂 Sounds challenging, ha? It is difficult enough to claim that your truth is not right, yet talking about the objective truth is almost inappropriate, isn’t it?

However, this time here I will not be talking about philosophical image of reality and truth, but i would like to share with you something very scary from USA’a social life.

You may have heard about a TV show called “Toddlers and tiaras“ – today has been the first time I’ve watched it and I do not want to do it again. As far as I understand the babies’ beauty (torture) pageants are a common thing, since most of these babies have attended half a hundred of those, doing it every couple of months.

So there you go, first shock is the fact that BABIES, yes the small adorable, innocent (like one of the dads of the beauties) human beings, who should be enjoying toys, are put on stage to become toys themselves. I see it as a situation where mothers with all their unfulfilled dreams egoistically ruin their girls’ lives. Nope, i did not right it too sharp, i would like to say a bit more about those mothers, but will stay parliamentary this time. 😉

Second thing that shocked me – THEY EXIST!!! These pageants actually exist. I don’t know if first the demand came around or supply but it is pure eval to make money out of this. A) Mothers obviously are not happy about their lives (maybe they are too uneducated too) and try to make sense of their existence by b) torturing a new born person. This torture is special, because it leads to becoming addicted to materialistic way of life (and we already have enough of those kind of people). Children without having a choice and realizing what is happening to them are forced into all these skin deep things like clothes, make-up, beauty, winning, tiaras, money and fake smiles…

If you watch half a show, you will notice that it actually tries to show the stupidity and natural resistance of everyone else except the mothers. Let us look at the fathers. One important thing is that these families are very christian. Very very. “Who made you that pretty“ – asks a mother her 2 year old daughter. “God did“ – says she.  No, sweety, NO! Your genes did… Anyway, i will not get into the religious stuff, but boy, i would have some things to say about it…

So, the fathers, they have a say in this whole theater and what they can say is – fantastic! Turn around and cry fro their lives, children and wives…. Some of them say that they cannot express their real opinion in front of the camera!!! Again, those honest kids…“Do you want to go and hunt (!!!) with your daddy or go to a pageant with your mommy?“ – mommy asks. To which her 2 year old daughter replies: “With daddy to hunt“. Guess what the mom says: “ Just don’t say it to your dad! Let’s go do your nails!“ Do i need to add more to this?

Tell me, what conclusions do you make out of this?

Oh, and if this is not enough, look at the pictures http://tlc.howstuffworks.com/tv/toddlers-tiaras/toddlers-and-tiaras-pictures.htm. These are REAL kids, i mean under the make up.

***

I would say that the current composition of the world is bad. Some would argues that it is the best the world has known so far, but by admitting that, I am logically not obliged to also claim that therefore it cannot be bad. Do you follow?

Democracy without education and critical, logical thinking will simply be a mass manipulation by the rich. And i actually don’t know know what is worse, to be pour or stupid…

Have a say! Have a wise say, please!

    Jei nematei, būtinai reikia pamatyti filmą Little Miss Sunshine… Jis pasako viską ką galvoju. O trumpai – mano akimis tai tokia pat žmonių nušokimo nuo proto forma kaip ir vaikų darželiai be lyčių Švedijoj.

    O aš manau, kad Švedija dirba protingai ir stengiasi, įskaitant su edukacija. Bet kodėl tu suverti viską to the rich (nors ir pritariu pačiai sentencijai apie jų įtaką)? Kuo šiuo atveju jie dėti? Be to, kodėl grynai-amerikietišką durnybę suverti visam pasauliui?

    Petrai, mačiau tą filmą, labai patiko, tik nelabai suprantu, visgi, ką tu manai, nes ten buvo daug įvairių dalykų pasakyta, parodyta. Nors ir happy end’as, bet gana nerealistiškas…
    Darželiai “be lyties“ yra superinė idėja ir viskas priklauso tik nuo to, kaip ji bus įgyvendinta.
    Linai, “suverčiu“ turtingiesiems dėl to, kad jie valdo pasaulį, o tai gana big deal, don’t ya think? 😉 Ar tu ginčysies su tuo faktu, kad jie valdo pasaulį?
    Amerikietiškos durnybės nesuverčiu visam pasauliui, patys amerikiečiai skelbia ją per visus galus ir jie patys verčia savo įsitikinimus ir realybę ant visų, kas tik ją priima nors kiek, o jei nepriima… na… pagal savo sugedimo lygį kiekvienas galime sugalvoti, prisiminti, kas tuomet vyksta…

    Nu kaip ir sakiau, pritariu bendrai frazei apie the rich, jų įtakos ir žalos diagnozavimui, bet nesuprantu, kaip tai susiję su ta durna laidele. nebent labai per aplinkui. Be to, vis tiek lieku prie įspūdžio, jog grynai amerikietiškus reiškinius priskyrei “pasauliui“, kuris dėl tų jų laidų nesuka galvos. Na taip, kartais amerikiečiai panaudoja mickey mousus propagandai, bet iš esmės nei white house, nei kita konjunktūra nesitapatina su televizine produkcija ir ja nesirūpina, jiems svarbūs visai kiti brandai: cnn situation room ir panašiai, – dar dėl fox news pavirkauja, pasipiktina ar pasišaipo. bet iš principo pritariu, kad daug nesąmonių vyksta, ir reikėtų su jom kovoti, užuot vien komentavus 😉

    Įdėmiai perskaičiau – sutinku su daugeliu tavo pastebėjimų. Ir LT TV tuo pačiu keliu eina, deja.
