The first time this competition happened was in 1952. By then the girls are able to make educated decisions as to whether or not to participate. Mass communication sources like television, Internet, and radio are the hunters to which children fall as an easy prey.
If the beauty competition was based on skill or ability, that would be fine. Some wear false hair, others false teeth. I cannot speak for others.
