Child Abuse Plain And Simple

If you’ve been reading this page for a while you know that I have a few hot buttons – things that really piss me off and get me raging. There are a few of these but none is worse than bad parenting. This comes in many forms of course, from those parents who blame others for their children’s actions (of course little Johnny raped and beat an elderly woman, he played a video game that I bought him) to those who don’t look after their kids correctly (how dare the internet have porn on it that my eight year old kids can look at when I leave them alone for the weekend). What follows is a story of nothing less than child abuse. The twist is, there’s no law against this sort.

Kerry Campbell is a 34 year old mother from Birmingham who currently lives in San Francisco. Her eight year old daughter Britney is subject to an horrific routine in her life. Once every three months Britney lies down on her mother’s beauticians table as her mother arranges a series of borrowed needles next to her, then her mother injects a poison derived from Botulism directly into her face. That’s right folks, Kerry gives little Britney botox injections.

The first injection was given to Britney on her eighth birthday as a present and Kerry has been buying the stuff online and through a “beauty dealer” (another mother at the school the child attends), administering it with needles handed out at the local pharmacy (the free ones they give to drug addicts to stop them sharing) as well as those spare ones she could borrow from a friend with Diabetes (because an eight year old with wrinkles is much more important than a life threatening condition).

What I am doing for Britney now will help her become a star. I know one day she will be a model, actress or singer, and having these treatments now will ensure she stays looking younger and baby-faced for longer. I’m sure people reading this will think I am being irresponsible, but I ensure that I test the Botox and fillers I buy online on myself first. I’m proud Britney is getting to have these beauty treatments at such a young age. I wish that I’d had the same advantages when I was younger. She is a lucky little girl and is going to be famous because of the benefits I am giving her so early. All I want is for Britney to have the best start in life, so it is easier for her to become a superstar. More mothers should do it for their daughters.

Yeah, more mothers should inject toxins directly into their children’s faces shouldn’t they. But what about the other things you’re doing Kerry? Oh sorry readers, I forgot you were there then. You don’t know what else she’s been doing do you? Well, read on.

Britney, a product of a relationship between Kerry when she was 26 years old and a 79 year old research scientist who died four years later, is subject to monthly “virgin wax” treatment too. Once a month all of the hair on her arms, legs and genital area is waxed off. This is done in a bid to ensure that she doesn’t grow pubic hair at all and that her legs and arms stay hair free for life. Kerry is proud she’s thought of this as it will save her supermodel daughter a fortune in waxing costs. As for Britney…

I feel like a supermodel and if I do ballet or go swimming I don’t have to worry about hairy legs. Although the pain makes me cry, I feel like a cool grown-up when it’s all over. My friends think it’s cool I have all the treatments and they want to be like me. I check every night for wrinkles, when I see some I want more injections. They used to hurt, but now I don’t cry that much. I also want a boob and nose job soon, so that I can be a star.

I wonder where she got the idea that cool grown ups have these treatments and that stars need boob and nose jobs? This year two new treatments will be added to little Britney’s regime. First her eyebrows will be waxed completely off, and then a light tattoo will be applied as a shape template. Finally her lips will be tattooed with a rosy pink colour, a process described by beauticians as something that “makes them more inviting“. Aren’t we all glad that this parent cares about her daughter so much?

I’d rather she be perfect and have a little frozen face. Some people say her eyebrows look a little pulled already but they look striking. All this pain and effort now will benefit Britney no end. When she’s a superstar earning millions, she’ll always be grateful for what I did when she was so young.

What Kerry seems to have missed is that she’s putting all her eggs in one basket here, and the basket can’t hold them all. There’s no guarantee that her kid will end up a superstar and she’s pretty much promising her that she will. One accident in the playground and none of this regime will count for shit. Will her child thank her then? How about if she just plain doesn’t make amongst the thousands of other hopefuls? When she’s pulling tricks for some old man (like mother, like daughter after all) because she only knows how to use her looks to get through life will she thank her mother for torturing her as a child then? There is no excuse to do these things to a child and this beauty pageant culture that sexualising our children in this manner should be ashamed for this and the countless other abuses parents have inflicted on their children so they can live vicariously through them. It’s no life for a child – it’s child abuse, plain and simple.

  1. This is quite insane, and I'm going to have to digest it & think more before replying sensibly – it's just…..unbelievable.

  2. Botox treatment at such a young age will not have any positive effects on this girls face later on in life. Permantent wrinkles start developing when people are well grown up, depending on their diet and how stressful lives they lead.This mother is causing her daughter pain to get an effect that won't last longer than eight months. And the only evidence of the treatment will be her daughters inability to show facial expressions. Botox can also cause mentail inability to show emotion. That can't be good for her daughters development mentally.Mothers who steal their kids childhoods make me rage! :furious:

    At least she got that right! That kid should have been taken away from her. It's horrible what she's putting her daughter through. 😡

  4. It was on our news yesterday and I was thinking of sending you basic information so you could find more data – but you already did :up:Unfortunately, those people live among us. One day I heard 15 years old girl bragging about "nose job"she will do soon. Of course, there was nothing wrong with her nose but this is how it starts :doh: I guess it will end as Gataca.

  5. I have to admit I was a bit shocked when I found out that botox is common among people (yes, both men and women) in their 30-40s here. First of all because you don't know what the side affects might be in a few years, but also because I found it weird that people in their 30s thought they "needed" it.But Sweet Mother of all Deities. Eight years old?Plus all that other shit that insane mother puts her through?:furious:

  6. :eyes: Look, mom, you future superstar has a double chin, isn't that nasty? Get straight to the surgeon, fast :bomb: I wish someone invented injections of common sense! I bet that woman was dreaming about being a star herself and now pushing her daughter to become what she couldn't. You know, one of those stage moms who think anorexia and coke in the nose are so glamorous and sex with producers is ok to get roles. What can be more sad than a lost chilhood … 😦

  7. I thought a little context was important to the piece which is why I included details about the father of young Britney and the fact he was three times older than her mother was when Britney was conceived. It seemed relevant.

  8. I find it hard to understand (well, I *don't* understand) why this woman has been allowed to practice this procedure on her child. I'm guessing the woman isn't qualified, medically. And, nature being what it is (i.e. rarely forgiving), we can guess that the child will mature with less external beauty than she would have, if her stupid, dumbass, selfish bitch of a 'mother' had left her alone.Britney may grow to be a lovely, charming person, or possibly a twisted, sad individual with virtually unresolveable self-image problems. Either way her mother is, in my opinion, committing a crime against this child's human rights.

    :(How true. @ Mik: I'm using Mobile 10.00(499) final, Symbian.

  10. 11,00 isn't quite right on my phone,either. 4&6 scroll up and down, I still can't see embedded content… I suppose I'm going to have to get an iPhone to use Opera properly.

  11. 😆 Yeah, that'll help with the majority of embedded content being Flash and the iPhone refusing to have Flash anywhere near them as Apple own a competing technology.For embedded content the best on the market right now is Android, and even then you need the Flash plug-in. Symbian has one but Adobe hasn't released it yet, except in special cases. Even I can't get hold of it. :irked: Don't they know who I am? 😉

  12. Mik – I read somewhere that Flashplayer 5 works for Symbian (but I suspect that might be bollocks) – and have you read about Adobe Flash Lite?? That sounds like it's going somewhere interesting…

  13. Flash Lite has been around for years (it's one of my set upgrades to a phone) and is capable of most things people want from Flash on phones, namely streaming music (which the phones can do anyway) and streaming video (again the phones can do this but sites like Youtube use Flash and people don't know anything else that is as convenient). The reason Flash Lite isn't used often isn't a problem with the phones, its that the applications used to browse have to call it up seperately rather than using it as part of the app itself.Full Flash for mobiles is around but, like I said, they're not releasing it publically yet. There have been quite a few problems with the One Screen project, including some a certain fruit based company came up with to try and delay them (mostly frivolous lawsuits designed to delay projects then dropped moments later).

    Britney's pretty much screwed. Been in this business all my life and I can't even begin to count how many people I've nicknamed "Dead-Face". It's a tough business which is equal parts luck, talent, looks and intelligence – usually three of those will be enough to get you far enough. One look at this kid and casting people and directors are going to begin thinking, "What's wrong with her face!?":insane:

    A girl has to look natural enough to make it so far before they can get away with doing things like this. Her mother has pretty much screwed her chances.

    I noticed that too! Oh no!What a freak! She probably doesn't let the girl do homework because 'thinking gives you wrinkles' or something stupid. Then, when she doesn't become a 'star', she wont have an education and will end up in the dole line:|
