A brouhaha broke out on Instagram recently over a picture of a 3-year-old eating ice cream while taking a bath. The issue was not about eating ice cream in the bath tub — truthfully I think the concept is brilliant — but instead, everyone freaked out about the blogger publicly posting a full frontal nude photo of her child for the viewing pleasure of her 25,000-plus followers.
Some commenters thought the picture should be removed because the image could fall into the hands of a pedophile: “Please take this picture down! Do you really know who can look/copy/lift the image and do whatever sick and twisted thing with it?” (The popular mom blogger who posted the image has since removed it.)
Others defended the photo on the grounds of cuteness: “It’s just an innocent child in a bath tub. I have many pics like this!” Those defending the picture accused the naysayers of trying to sexualize a picture that was obviously innocent.
Where do you stand on the issue?
