Those Stage Mothers - UPDATED

UPDATE (Sept. 19/11): Three days have passed since DJ! was given an ultimatum by the director of Miss Right to Life Georgia about this post -- her time limit to stop 'plagiarizing' and violating copyright (see comments). As we explained here, we believe that the director has her head up her ass is mistaken. We did not plagiarize and the use of the quoted material falls -- without question -- under the US legal concept of 'fair use' and its Commonwealth version 'fair dealing'. Therefore, the text of this blogpost has not been altered.

However, on reflection and consultation, we have decided to replace the photo. After all, line-ups of white gals in ball gowns are a dime a dozen. We think this new photo captures the spirit and purpose of the Miss Right to Life Georgia beauty pageant much better.

Earlier today DJ! had the head-exploding story of Paisley Dickey, the three-year-old 'beauty pageant' contestant whose mother dressed her up in the hooker costume from 'Pretty Woman'.

When shit hit fan over than, Mumsie tried to make amends by declaring that the outfit would be auctioned with all proceeds going to Georgia Right to Life, a fetus fetishist organization.

We wondered why.

Well, seems Mumsie was thinking ahead to the Miss Right to Life of Georgia pageant.

(Go ahead. Click the link. We are ^NOT making this shit up.)
We are not your average beauty pageant! Miss Right to Life of Georgia is a scholarship and benefit pageant that is the very first of its kind in the country! All the profits from Miss Right to Life of Georgia will go directly to Georgia Right to Life.

Not only are we here to raise funds for such a prestigious organization, but we strive to raise awareness of the importance of the "Pro-Life Movement". All contestants are provided with a workshop to improve interview skills, ability to speak, and confidence level. Miss Right to Life also provides an optional Talent Competition for contestants to showcase their talents beyond the audience of their school theatre program or church. Most importantly, we strive to instill the value of mentorship, leadership, and service in the lives of the young women who join this program. All pageant participants will be given the opportunity to make an impact, leave a mark, persuade a heart, or even save a life.

The board of directors hope to begin a legacy of young women who are not just beautiful on the outside, but beautiful on the inside, and who truly have a heart for service and a fighting dedication to the Pro-Life cause.

Seems they have several queens at once in different age groups.

Will they make a special category for 'Former Hooker Turned Good Girl'?

Stay tuned.

UPDATE, Sept. 16/11: We've pissed off Miss Right to Life Georgia. Check the comments.

UPPERDATE: DJ! responds.

Perhaps the RRRRatzinger should take a page (No! No! I mean a metaphoric page) from this metaphoric book. What a fine marketing model - Why waste time on actual good works when indoctrination of children works so well?

junior Miss beatific smile . . .
pubescent Miss furrowed brow . . .

C'mon grrls . . . get into the habit. Imaginary sky-gods don't grow on trees . . . make Daddy proud.

They're just extolling how great it is that none of these beauties were wiped out by abortion.

Maybe I'm thick, I've never understood that argument of time-travel abortion. Or I just don't believe Dr. Who is reality.

Pageant Director: Right. Got your email. Will respond by that route.

But in the meantime, you might want to look up 'plagiarism'. The quoted material was properly sourced and referenced. It is not plagiarism.

This, not to put too fine a point upon it, is bullshit. You are entirely covered by the "fair use" doctrine, having provided clear attribution. And this idiot is, in any case, bluffing: you are covered by Canadian law, not American law. Let this creature come north and try her chances--and good luck with that.

Sorry, Pageant Director of MRTL. But, she has every right to use the image under fair use. America or Canada.

So, go somewhere else with you thuggery and your attempt to file a SLAPP lawsuit.

A beauty pageant director who uses intimidation, bullying and misinformation to get what she wants?

Because you did not receive written permission in advance, the material used above is not permitted.

This is not an attempt to start an uproar, only to keep my girls out of this situation entirely. Regardless of other people's opinions, ideas, and actions, they do not deserve to be ridiculed and have their photo posted in a negative way on the internet. That is my only concern. If you go to my website I do not bash anyone. My number one concern are the innocent ones involved.

I am not concerned with "plagiarism", but with the copyright infringement. My photo, my rights. My text, my rights. You can't use it without my explicit permission.

@Director: We have three days to reply to your demand. In the meantime you might want to read this.
