Botox injections and leg waxing on an 8-year-old girl, all in the name of beauty pageant success, all done by her own mom.

It sounds too unreal to be true, like a storyline straight out of “When Stage Moms Go Bad.” It’s not. It’s real life for an 8-year-old California girl.

We spoke with the girl, Britney, and her mom, Kerry, to learn exactly why they turned to Botox, and exactly how young is too young when it comes to using medical treatments for the sake of beauty.

Kerry, who asked that her family’s last name not be used, told "Good Morning America’s" Lara Spencer that it was actually her daughter, Britney, who wanted to try Botox, a beauty treatment more normally requested by aging women than growing girls.

I can’t even… What the hell is she teaching this child?

“In my 19 years not once have I ever been confronted by an individual who realized independently that I was raised by a gay couple. And you know why? Because the sexual orientation of my parents has had zero effect on the content of my character.”

I love this video, and I love this guy for everything he said.

Please take the time to watch this 3 minute video!

This video makes me proud me to stand among those who care about the value of people as opposed to the labels we place on them. Reblog this video if you believe in equality.

I love this.

At 19 years old, this guy is an AMAZING public speaker. Now, if only we could convince Virginians of this. 

stop the h8.

I’m gonna reference this video in the paper I’m writing in my AP English class about the legalization of same sex marriage

This guy is such an amazing speaker.
