Boys in Beauty Pageants ... OK or No Way?

sign up for the momlogic newsletter Tweet This

We're obsessed with little Zander on "Toddlers & Tiaras" -- he's the boy who calls himself a "pageant diva."


Check out video of him here.

He's 5 years old and has been in 60 pageants. He's been doing them since he was a little baby. He says, "I don't like to lose, because my mom might be sad."

Mom Tracy says, "My 5-year-old son, Zander, is a pageant king. A lot of people are wondering why boys are in pageants. They think he's going to be on the wrong side of the fence. I'm so not concerned ... OK, so I am a little concerned. We have had people back out of pageants because Zander is in them. They put out thousands of dollars for their dresses and hours for makeup and hair, and here comes this little 4-year-old boy and takes their title."

Last year, we blogged about this kid:

"Gay Uncle" Brett Berk wrote, "Sadly, when I watched the clip of this kid, he was a butchy blond brat, all decked out in the world's tiniest tuxedo and being instructed by his stage mother in how to flirt with the female judges. ('Point at the ladies and say, "You're so pretty!"') Boring! Not to mention the fact that in the same allegedly glorifying clip, the little hellion was shown responding to his mommy's instructions by having a knock-down, lying-on-the-floor, kicking-and-screaming tantrum."

What do you think about boys in beauty pageants -- OK, or no way?

I had been wanting to know if you ever thought of changing the layout of your web site? Its well written; I enjoy what you have got to state. But maybe you can add a a bit more in the way of content so people could connect to it better. Youve got an awful lot of wording for only having one or two photos. Maybe you could space it out better?

Even though I actually like this post, I believe there was an spelling error shut towards the finish with the third sentence.

I have absolutely nothing wrone with pagaents, inface I watch Toddlers and Tiaras, but this woman in looney and about 98% of these mothers and fathers are insane because they were probably not very cool in school or did not get to do what they wanted in life or were not succesful at it. The poor poor children that are forced to get their eyebrows waxed when they could be playing with friends. If the child wants to do it and nnot because of the parent(s), let them do it if until they don’t want to anymore. Also, the crazy ladey says that she is a little concerned, well take the kid out of the pagaents and put the kid in football before it is too late!!!!!! The child already said he was a princess.

I’d be inclined to engage with you on this. Which is not something I usually do! I really like reading a post that will make people think. Also, thanks for allowing me to comment!

Is it okay to put a portion of this on my personal webpage if I publish a reference point to this website?
