My view is “Beauty contests is do more harm.”
I think Beauty pageants reward no real skill or achievement other than being attractive. These contests reinforce the idea that women should be primarily valued for their looks.
the beauty pageants can tell girls that they should centralize beauty. Unfortunately some of the girls feel like they MUST spend mass time dressing up themselves.This is not the case all the time but when it is, it is rather sad. I have seen and heard of women who dress their daughters in false straight teeth, wigs, fake eyelashes, etc. and all I can think is "It's simply horrible" because from an early age you are telling the girls "no you are not beautiful enough.". I know some of the girls love dressing up and putting on a show for everyone which is fine, but they should have other activities such as playing violin, writing, painting,dancing and so on. I just do not believe being "pretty" should be rewarded because people need other skills. I just do not believe looks are to be valued so highly because in the end they fade away to dust and ash
beauty lies within, and not in the appearance? Truly, the influence of beauty contests over boys and girls can be harmful, and more than that, disastrous as they grow up. While children are in the process of developing their minds with increasing age, the more they are exposed to the glitterati, the easier it is for their minds to corrupt. The little ones become recklessly determined that the ultimate key to success lies in dressing up like a Hollywood star. With the feeling of narcissism comes resentment towards others, hatred towards the ones less able, and an ever-increasing dissatisfaction towards oneself. Following points describe the totally-uncalled-for impacts of child beauty contests on children:
Children tend to believe that beauty lies solely in their appearance, leaving no room for inner beauty and traits.
They start comparing themselves physically with others, and this causes resentment, jealousy and dissatisfaction when expected results are not achieved.
Highly influenced by what they see when they notice their favorite stars performing on television, they try to imitate their habits, stunts, brands, and workout techniques. They demand their parents to get a makeover, and spend recklessly on the very health drinks, cosmetics, and technology that they see their idols using, little knowing that they could affect their delicate skin, health, and gentle minds.
They spend most of their time in front of mirrors as they get immensely obsessed with good looks.
They start losing interest in studies, and put too much emphasis on appearance rather than inner beauty, which ultimately sends a wrong message to the youthful minds.
Pageants are merely money-making enterprises that prey on women's vanity.
We should pay more attention in our study and life,rather than Indulge in dressing up.
So my view is Beauty contests is do more harm.
