I started blogging in February of this year. We receive daily reports as to how many people read our blogs, which ones are read and the most interesting information of all: the search phrases that lands people on the blogs. I am always fascinated by the search terms, particularly once I wrote about the TLC show, Toddlers and Tiaras. Every single day there is something that someone searches for regarding this show. And at least once or twice a month the search phrase makes me want to vomit.
In December alone there were the following search phrases:
"Jerk off to Toddlers and Tiaras"
"Masturbating to Toddlers and Tiaras"
These types of phrases come across my report all the time. Also in December there were 4 searches for Toddlers and Tiaras pedophiles. But the producers of the show see nothing wrong with parading these little girls on TV in promiscuous looking outfits that even prompt five year olds to call each other out for "looking like hookers". Observe:
Our featured picture above is the girl dressed as Julia Roberts character, a hooker, in "Pretty Woman". Of course all 5 year olds know what hookers are. And this one's mom thought nothing of dressing her daughter this way because it was "cute".
Sexual abuse of children has been a huge news item this past year. Just this past week, a beautiful nine year old Indiana girl was murdered by a neighbor after Mommy moved them into a trailer park that was almost completely occupied by sex offenders. The reports of abuse are countless, lest we forget the Jerry Sandusky debacle. It doesn't matter if it's abuse against girls or boys, we as a society cannot continue to remain quiet.
In Chicago the ratio of registered sex offenders is 1 per 1,100. So for every 1,100 people in Chicago there is someone who has committed a sexual offense. As of April 2010 there were 2.6 million people in Chicago. This leaves roughly 3,000 sex offenders just in our city.
I am certainly not the only person completely offended by Toddlers and Tiaras. There are 2 Facebook pages that are compiling followers to ban the show from television. I also am against sex offenders being allowed to live amongst us. Call me nutty but if someone has molested a child, I wouldn't want him/her living next door.
So with the TV shows still on and the sex offenders living amongst us, I am a firm believer that it's up to us, as parents to teach our children and teach them well, what to do to reduce the number of offenses.
These are great publications to help parents with younger children learn how to deal with the subject.
These types of publications and information should be mandatory reading for all parents. When we read of a child being moved into a neighborhood filled with known sex offenders we all wonder what Mommy was thinking. She obviously wasn't and allowed her children to be in the care of a man with a criminal record. Perhaps if the mother was better educated this may have been avoided.
We also have to turn our heads to the parents of the Toddlers and Tiaras contestants. They are teaching their little girls to put themselves on display. These little girls are being abused just by being on the show. Their parents put them through endless "adult" activities (botox, eyebrow waxing, tanning, fake nails, heavy make-up, hair extensions and wigs, "flippers" or dentures to cover missing teeth, etc) with only their own interests in mind.
I'd like to poll the parents of these contestants and see how they feel about the people that openly search the internet to "masturbate or jerk off to Toddlers and Tiaras". Their daughter may be the one that particular pedophile is doing it to.
My hope for 2012 is that my search phrases will include "Toddlers and Tiaras cancellation" or "new laws restricting sex offenders". Please share this blog on Facebook or your Twitter account. The more people that read, the more will become educated. I'm sure I'm not the only one that hopes to never see another search phrase about this subject. I would hope.
