Appropriate or Appalling?

It has been a while since I posted. I just haven’t found anything that made me want to rant until today! I found this video through aol and was totally appalled. Watch the video and you will see why.

These are six or seven year old girls doing highly inappropriate dance moves. My own daughter is almost 7 and I wouldn’t let her wear a costume like that, let alone perform those dance moves. What is wrong with the world today, when letting a 7 year old dance like that is okay. There is nothing right with this. Beyonce wears more clothing in her video for this song than these little girls do. In a time when child predators run rampant, the last thing we need is little girls dressing like this and performing dance moves like those in the above video.

Are these little girls good dancers? Yes. However, they could have performed a more age appropriate dance routine. Seven year old girls do not need to be dancing like this to any song.

What do you think? Do you think the costumes and/or dancing was fine or totally inappropriate? Leave a comment and let me know.

  1. I think the gap between watching little girls dance in a competition and watching child pornography just got a little closer… Sad. Very sad. Forget AGE APPROPRIATE — it wouldn't be appropriate for an Adult Woman either!

  2. That's what I thought. You will never see me dancing like that or my daughter for that matter. It saddens me that this is slowly becoming the norm in today's society.
