On the right hand side of my screen I always see two or three contests between babies going on. Are we all in the Southern part of the USA -where beauty contests run rampant?
Who is putting their kid over there and why? I have looked through them to see what they were and got frustrated because I have to vote for one and only one. Line 'em up, I'll tell you who I think is the cutest! Really? The blue eyed one just took the cake for me. The cutest name was one thing, but now we are on to the eye color? Have I missed the hair color one?

Oh, I know what you mean. It's cute baby photo contests here in COM. Anybody can create one. Some are "hottest mommy", "prettiest blue eyes", "most meaningful dirty diaper", and what have you. I entered a couple when I first joined COM (back when I thought I might actually win something in these contests!) but haven't even looked at them in a long time.

I wouldn't mind it if it were a photography contest. That would be kind of cool.

And I'm not really sure where you get the stereotype, btw. They aren't really all that rampant down here. :)

I don't know. But on FB I am sick of people asking me to vote for their kid in the cuteness contest and all this shit. I DON'T CARE! I'm not friends with you just so you can get more votes.
