    It is revolting and super inappropriate. I feel bad for the people being written about!

    The best thing anyone can do is report the users who write these and hope their accounts get taken down

    8 year old CP stumbled onto Instagram fanfic with the Dance Mom girls that was soft porn. Luckily dad was looking through the phone so we were able to have the conversation about the appropriateness of the site. Unfortunately, dad backed out if the site and I am having trouble finding it again to report it. CP says she didn't understand most of it but realized it was inappropriate.
    So sad that we have to shield our kids from this type of stuff.

    What really kills me is there is no real way to report this stuff, and there isn't any way to contact Instagram to explain the problem outside of the specific situations they provide. They really put it on the user to report this stuff, but don't give us adequate means to do so. I'm really frustrated over the whole thing.

    And @megsmom aren't the dance mom girls like 11?

    Some of the dance mom girls age from 6/7 (the two younger ones) to the oldest 13/14 i think!

    I actually had someone message me and ask me what was so wrong about the fanfics and if it was bad that she was reading them.

    I am not your parent and I'm not going to tell you what's right and what's wrong. If you're okay with reading that then that's your own prerogative but I won't support it....

    I mean, in the case of those involving minors, that's essentially written adult material involving children, which is seven shades of wrong.

    You're in a difficult position because you run a popular twitter, so how you respond is potentially influential. No pressure :p

    Carly Manning has an ask.fm and someone recently asked her how she feels about the fanfics and she said "It's seriously the most annoying/stupid/ignorant thing I've seen" and the person had the nerve to say "How is it stupid?". I feel so sorry for them, they're just kids and having people make up creepy stories about their lives is just so wrong! I agree with everyone who has said previously write them about actual fictional characters who cares but they are real people! :banghead:

    The whole thing is, is this isn't just in cheerleading. It's EVERYWHERE AND IN EVERYTHING. I know for a fact there is a site called "wattpad" where girls post crap like that all the time. One direction, werewolf, vampire, or anything else, these girls write sexual and vulgar stories. The stuff they put in these fan fictions are bizarre and ridiculous. The only way to stop them is to report them, have the cheerlebrities tell them to stop, or all comment on there that its ridiculous. They're parents would be amazed at what their daughters share with the public.

    That is more than disgusting.....& the fact that they are minors makes it illegal. If anyone sees posts like the one described they should report it immediately

    I think that someone needs to make a list of fan fiction accounts and post it on here, and we all report them. We need to communicate to girls that its NOT okay to be making sexual stories and posting it on the Internet! These actions could get these girls in trouble later on in life. I think I'll go find all the cheer fanfic accounts and post them on here so we can report them.

    I think the writers are minors as well and probably very unaware of how illegal it could potentially be. I think they should be made aware of that ASAP before they get legal action against them from an angry parent. That's just a sad situation all around.

    The hard part is Instagram's reporting system is flawed at best, so reporting these stories and accounts has been very difficult

    Still, the more of us that report, the more pages will be taken away, and the sooner we can bring a end the this insanity
