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?

Have you considered adding a few social bookmarking buttons to these blogs. At the very least for twitter.

My daughters just entered their first beauty pageant. My oldest daughter is seven and she decided on her own that she would like to try one because she watched Toddlers and Tiaras and thought it would be fun. I however prefer to keep my daughters natural so I entered her andher sister into a pageant that was not all about the makeup, fake teeth, hair and lashes, and focused on the natural beauty. Both of them had a great time because they both walked away with awards. It was not a demanding experience for them and it lasted all of an hour. I’m allowing my son to play football because he wants to. It’s only fair that I let my daughters try something that they might like. They both want to do it again. June 3, 2011, 12:22 AM
