Facebook shuts down 'Most Beautiful Teen' Page

Facebook shuts down 'Most Beautiful Teen' Page

ABC News Tweeted an article about the controversy surrounding a Facebook page and a ‘beautiful teen contest’. Have you seen it?

The headline reads: Facebook Shuts Down ‘Most Beautiful Teen’ Page

The Facebook page apparently solicited sexy pictures from teenagers hoping to be named “The Most Beautiful Teen in the World.”

The page has since been shut down after it sparked outrage from concerned parents and security experts.

Many of the photos were quite provocative, with shirtless boys and girls in bikinis. What happened next certainly doesn’t shock me. The photos were judged by other Facebook users and the comments were not so nice. In fact, many were down right rude!

For example:

“I would not touch with a ten-foot pole,” one comment read.

“Her nose is too big,” read another.

Here’s the thing, I in no way advocate cyber bullying.

NEWS FLASH -- Girl Scout Cookie Locator Works!

Sacramento -- Patience tempered my unbridled eagerness Monday when I found a sale location for Girl Scout cookies on the website www.girlscoutshcc.org to find local businesses supporting this once-a-year fundraiser. Girl Scouts are selling the unique cookies through the end of March.

North Natomas- If you see this pumpkin let me know!

Okay ,so this broke my heart. My daughter found a beloved pumpkin at Goblin Gardens and since it was so big, rolled it into the car. We put it in the near 50 pounder in the front seat to get it home then rolled it up the driveway with a dolly. My daughter said do you think it's safe to leave outside and I said "oh yes." She was so proud and checked it and played near it everyday in the last week.

Then...this weekend came out and it was gone. Someone or more than one person came up on our lawn and took it we think overnight? I drove around to see if it was dropped anywhere nearby and no luck.

We'd love it returned no questions asked as it means alot. Wouldn't it be nice to have her little heart feel better and get it returned? Where's the Halloween Spirit?

One Body, Two Worlds by Natachi Mez

I’ve never really walked through the mind of someone other than myself. I’ve attempted it, but then again, how could I be accurate? I don’t know what makes me different from every other girl in the world, but I know the factors that multiply to equal me.

I remember, when I was a lot younger, I wanted a more common name. How many people do you know with the name “Natachi?” I wanted the straight, flowing hair. I wanted the hourglass. As I continue to evolve into a young lady, I embrace my culture. I love my name, which means “from god.” I embrace my hair, and I appreciate everything I have because without them, who would I be?

It’s funny sometimes, looking back. Thinking of all of the ridiculous things that ran through my mind and straight out of my mouth.
