MOMS DAITH PIERCING EXPIERENCE!!
This Mom's Picture Of Her Daughter's 'Piercing' Has People Freaking Out
It’s a joke, people. Tell that to the those who are fighting back against this mom who “pierced” her baby’s dimple.
Enedina Vance’s post from last week, which has gone viral and circulated around mommy groups, reads “So I got the baby girl’s dimple pierced!!”
Insert super adorb pic of her baby girl who’s all smiles—plus a rather fake-looking diamond stud in her cheek. (It was Photoshopped, according to CNN.)

“It looks so cute, right?!! I just know she’s gonna love it!!" she writes in the caption. "She’ll thank me when she’s older lol if she decides she doesn’t like it, she can just take it out, no big deal.”
She does fan the flames a bit by at least trying to make it believable in a hilariously snarky way. “I’m the parent, she is MY CHILD, I will do whatever I want,” she says. But you have to start laughing when she says “I make all of her decisions until she’s 18, I made her, I own her!!” Followed by #ChildrensRights and #sarcasm.
That didn’t stop people from getting seriously pissed at her “choice”—even sending her hate mail and threatening to have her child taken away. To date the post has had more than 13,000 shares. And while a lot of people get it, a lot of them don’t.
“This makes me want to puke lol,” one woman commented. “This lady is f--ed up for even putting her though that pain for something completely unnecessary!”
“I’m not okay with this one bit…No, never in a million years are my kids or any babies in my house getting their flipping cheeks pierced…their [sic] babies not, baby dolls,” said another.

The post may have been sarcastic, but it was also meant to get people thinking. Vance says later in the comments, “My point is that no one has the right to alter or modify another person’s body for aesthetic purposes.” Vance is also an advocate against circumcision, tellingCNNthat the practice feels "outdated."
The American Academy of Pediatrics (AAP) says that ear piercing can generally be safe at any age, although recommends postponing the procedure until the child is old enough to care for their piercing themselves to reduce the risk of infection.
As for circumcision, the AAP stated in 2012 that the health benefits of the practice outweigh the risks, but not by enough to recommend making it a universal practice. The final decision on the practice should be up to families, the organization said. It's important to note that circumcision also has cultural significance to many people (for example, it is a sacred Jewish rite).
The lesson of the story? Always read hashtags. Always.
