That's It, Toddlers & Tiaras: You've Gone Too Far (VIDEO)

The pedophilia-fest known as Toddlers & Tiaras has always been guaranteed to put an unsettling feeling in your stomach. The TLC show, which is directly responsible for a recent boom in creepy uncles, showcases young girls and the occasional confused boy like candy as they strut their prepubescent stuff at baby beauty pageants. It's equal parts disgusting display and car crash/exploding fireworks factory/Bigfoot riding a unicorn, making it a spectacle that's nauseating yet oddly compelling to some (not me, Chris Hanson!).

But I'm drawing the line of arguable decency at fake tits. TLC has released the following clip to promote tonight's episode of Toddlers & Tiaras, and gosh darnit, I fell right into its trap. Watch as four-year-old Maddy brings out the big guns with a Dolly Parton costume.

Toddlers & Tiaras, it's the stripper minor leagues. The next time you see Maddy her stage name will be Jolene and hicks will be throwing quarters at her through chicken wire while she strips to "9 to 5."

I watched one episode of this - my sister was a dancer and has my nieces taking dance from a lady who can demonstrate the dance moves...not a lard *** who sits there like Pizza the Hut leaking lard on the floor and can't move.

I wouldn't let her near my kids if she paid us.

Especially now that I've seen she is only capable of instructing little girls how to work in "Gentleman's Clubs" for dollar bills and lap dancing ...there are plenty of competent dancers available who can teach young people to actually dance and not just writhe and gyrate for perverts

Hey lard ass mothers of Toddlers and Tiaras, Child Protective Services are calling you for sexualizing your daughters!

I`m pretty sure this could be defined as kind of child abuse. The girl doesn`t know or understand anything she`s doing and saying. She`s just her mother`s little puppet. So incredibly sad:(

That poor baby - Such a shame that she has such role models. And she really is a beautiful child, with no "enhancements'" Crazy parents.

O my... I paused it at 00:53 and only now do I see the look on the child's face. It really looks a lot like horror. This is freaking me out big time.

"It's really funny if she comes out on stage. Everybody thinks it's hysterical". How do you even call yourself a mother? I think this is truly sick. Where is Child Protective Services?

Wow! While I hate all reality crap (incl. talk shows) and even though I've never understood the craning-one's-neck-to-look-at-a-car-crash mentality, I've been known to watch bits and pieces of this vile thing (that is, before they started dubbing it where I live and I could no longer hear for myself the true idiocy of those "parents"), mostly because it's so horribly wrong on so many levels, that it gave me a great chance to voice my rightful indignation;) But this is ten times sicker than usual and that's saying something, as this is most certainly an extremely sick show to begin with. Makes you wonder whether neutering people is necessarily always wrong!

Makes you wonder if anyone from Chlid Protective Services watches tv....



I don't know what is worse, the parents for making/letting their kids do this, or television execs that think it makes good tv.
