However, not everyone immediately understood the point of Vance’s post.
You see, the piercing on her six month old daughter’s face was digitally created, and Vance considers herself an activist against body alterations in children. Vance speaks out against ear piercing and circumcision in babies.
Her post began: “So, I got the baby girl’s dimple pierced”.
“I’m the parent, she is MY CHILD, I will do whatever I want,” she continues. “I make all of her decisions until she’s 18, I made her, I own her!! I don’t need anyone’s permission, I think it’s better, cuter, & I prefer her to have her dimple pierced. Its NOT abuse!! If it was, it would be illegal, but it’s not. People pierce their babies everyday, this is no different.”
Vance finished off her post with a strong statement: “MY BABY, MY CHOICE!! PARENT’S CHOICE, PARENT’S RIGHTS!! Don’t judge my parenting, we all raise our kids differently, it’s none of your business anyway”.
While some outrage ensued (a few folks obviously didn’t pick up on the #sarcasm) most people agreed with Vance’s message.
