Hmmm, looks like middle school age. Sorry to be a prude, but that's too young in my book. 8th grade boys wearing cheerleading uniforms for Powder Puff games would be reasonable IMHO, but not a beauty pageant.
I wish I had been able to do this type of pageant when I was in middle school. But I think Idaho was way too conservative back in the 70's. It's probably way too conservative today!
You're welcome, Staci. Like on the old "Wide World of Sports", I comb the world for the latest, not on sports, but on "Womanless Beauty Pageants" for you and your readers!
Roscoe --- I am a little surprised about the ages of some of the participants, too. I have even come across photos online of grammar school and pre-school youths in womanless pageants. At the other extreme are school districts that have banned womanless pageants for all ages.
Nikki --- "Have gown, will catwalk" is my motto. I am waiting for the day that some local civic organization decides to hold a womanless pageant because I will be one of the first to sign up!
Laurie --- Keep up the good work!
Roscoe: I would say that if the pageant is ok for girls of the same age, that it should be ok for the boys. But I agree, after the Ramsey case there ought to be a lower limit. But 8th grade seems ok to me.How many have had the opportunity to be in a pageant? I was in two in 11th and 12th grade and had a great time.
Amelia --- Wow! Two pageants... lucky you! I'm still looking to be in my first and I am well-past pageant prime.
This reminds me of when I was in grade school and in "auditorium" class we boys hall had to put on stiff mannequin wigs and parade on stage before the girls-- to much laughter. Little did the teacher know the path she was leading me down...
When I was eight, I was forced to be a girl in a skit at summer camp. It was very humiliating. We wore a ton of makeup and we were ridiculed for the rest of the summer. Bad thing to do to a young boy.
