It is official!! The entire world of critics and commenters have officially signed on to be the co-parents to Blue Ivy Carter and North West, the girl child spawns of Beyonce Knowles and Shawn “JayZ” Carter; and Kim Kardashian and Kanye West, respectively.
Must be, cause it seems everyone has an opinion on every parenting decision those couples make about their kid, whether it is whether to leave them barefoot, comb their hair, take them on a vacation, let them walk versus carry them or travel with them. It appears that every paparazzi pic that comes across their social media feeds warrant some sort of visceral reaction from the global peanut gallery bemoaning their opinion of how these parents ought to be caring for their child! Sheesh!
Today’s drama du jour has to do with pics of North West, who is celebrating her first birthday with her parents in Mexico, revealing that the little one-year old go her ears pierced. She also was gifted a $30,000 doll house and a pair of diamond earrings to commemorate the milestone.
“Celebrities” I’ve never even heard of are even coming out the woodwork to throw a jab.
Here is a small selection of overreactions (it’s not that deep, really) other outlets have assembled:
Here is to hoping this woman never has a child of her own for people to ridicule and call vile names.
What is it that P.T. Barnum said:
First of all, it’s a cultural thing in many countries that are not America or in Europe to pierce a child’s ears when they are babies, and before they can consent or even talk. I pierced my daughter’s ears when she was 3 months old. My baby. My decision.
What’s the deal with other people not only imposing their own personal preference but also culture on others. Not cool. Mind your business and tend to your own kid is my opinion.
It might be cruel and painful in your eyes, but so is circumcising a baby in many people’s opinions, yet many of those outraged wouldn’t dare tell a Jewish parent he or she shouldn’t abide by their centuries old custom.
While it does take a village to raise a child, sometimes the village needs to let a parent do her or his thing and worry about what’s going on in their own huts.
