To watchers of fetus fetishists, it's pretty damn clear that it's not about the baybeez, it's about the wimmin (George Carlin fix) and the sex.
So what to make of this twisty-brainy thing?
The controversial 'Pretty Woman' prostitute costume worn by a 3-year-old in TLC's popular reality TV show 'Toddlers & Tiaras' is being auctioned off, according to the child's mother, Wendy Dickey.
She told E! News that the outfit her daughter Paisley Dickey wore during the Queen of Hearts pageant is being sold because of the uproar it caused, with all proceeds from the sale to go to Georgia Right to Life, an anti-abortion group.
Dickey was slammed by parents who felt the costume was not appropriate for a toddler to wear.
She told E! she came up with the idea for Paisley to wear the dress after she learned there would be a celebrity wear portion of the Queen of Hearts competition.
“...so I thought of my favorite actress ever, Julia Roberts,” Dickey said. “I was trying to figure out which characters she could be, so I wanted 'Pretty Woman.' Nothing too revealing, but hysterically funny!”
The uproar was somewhat cooled by having the kid also appear in the polka-dot 'good girl' dress from the film.
Man. Some life. From hooker to good girl before she's 4. What's she got left to do?
The take-away: any parent who would sexualize her own child for profit (presumably) might as well go whole hog and turn the kid into a hookeresque caricature.
And even the proceeds going to charity I guess makes a strange kind of sense. (You know, not completely whorish.)
But a freaking anti-choice charity?????
After a quick Google, I found a bunch of anti-sexual abuse organizations, including this one, RAINN, Rape, Abuse & Incest National Network. I bet there are tons more good ones.
When I tweeted about this this morning, a pal replied with the hashtag #civilizationisdoomed.
Which about sums it up.
Here's a video if you have the stomach for it.
(Apologies to deBeauxOs whose corner this usually is: viz here and here.)
UPDATE: Mumsie's selection of charity maybe explained.
UPPITY-DATE: Georgia Right to Life has declined the offer.
