The Case Against Kids: Is it Un-Latina to Not Want a Family?
By Marlene Montanez | 08/12/2010 - 11:27

By Carla Molina Martins | 05/19/2010 - 14:00

This week the Internet is buzzing with commentary on these little girls dancing to Beyonce's "Single Ladies" in this video. (Check out the video below!)

I find it pretty funny that so many people have their panties in a bunch about these kids. People are saying the dance is too damn sexy. They think the costumes are a tad on the slutty side. They say it's perfect for pedophile consumption. They're bashing the parents of these girls as unfit and careless.
