i sadly slowly got that one... lol
I have a baby daughter. We have pictures of her first time in the bathtub. They are in a separate folder on my computer because in the unlikely event I'm showing baby pics to a friend, I don't want them coming up.Seriously, what's this world coming to?
When my girlfriend was like... 6 or 7, one of her friends spent the night. They took a bath together and started playing with bubble hair styles and her dad's camera.When her poor unsuspecting dad went to go develop the pictures... he got in so much trouble. He had to talk the manager of a drug store out of calling the police on him.I guess they looked just enough like kids goofing off in the bathroom to not get him in trouble.
This comic from the Perry Bible Fellowship makes much the same point.
it's sad, in a generation naked baby pictures have gone from being a standard to a deviancy.
i was beaten to the pbf link, but i have a picture of my as a baby and my female friend of the same age in the bath (i think my brother and her sister were in there too) and no one has ever asked us any questions
In their laudable attempts to outlaw paedophilia, the powers-that-be have gone OTT and, to use an appropriate expression, thrown the baby out with the bathwater.
In an article I wrote about our elementary school's Fall Festival, I said that the kids "got their pants scared off" in the haunted house. Someone changed it to "got super scared" before publication. I assume that they didn't want to run the risk of someone thinking that we were actually using black magic to render our children naked from the waist down.Voodoo *and* paedophilia--that would be quite a scandal!
Next, on a "very special" Indexed....
Thank god for digital cameras.
