Little girls do "Single Ladies" and the women's movement takes two dance steps backwards

Wrong. This is just plain wrong. Think “Little Miss Sunshine” — except this is real life. We really hate agreeing with Fox News (it’s like one of the signs of the coming Apocalypse), but 8 year old girls should not be dressed up in sexy Pussy Cat Doll outfits and then taught how to gyrate and bump and grind in moves evocative of sexual techniques to gain an audience’s affirmation.
