Argument: Beauty pageants are not similar to sports for kids
Danni Miller. "Toddlers & Tiaras? Pull the Pin Now!" The Butterfly Effect. April 1st, 2011: "I’m tired of hearing pageant parents and organisers compare beauty competitions to sport. If a child engages in a sporting activity, when they lose they know they can go home to practice and hone their skills for next time—but when they compete in a beauty competition and lose, they can only feel unworthy and unable to do anything about it."
