There’s a fine line between funny and inappropriate, and that line gets even finer when you’re talking about anything for a baby. What one person finds cute and edgy, another person might find offensive and distasteful.
Baby clothes ARE cute, and having a little one affords parents the opportunity to dress someone else up in something that might be cute or silly or funny.
I mean, the baby COULD object, but the parent probably wouldn’t be dissuaded.
That might mean their sense of taste.
And that’s the one that can get parents in trouble. When people try to be funny is when they generally create the biggest fuss.
But the joke didn’t go over well for a lot of people.
See the offending item for yourself and see what you think.
Mumsnet user JarHead123 shared a photo of this onesie, which as you can see, says, “All Mummy Wanted Was a Back Rub.”
Now I don’t have kids, but I do have an opinion, and I didn’t really think much of it other than maybe dad got a little handsy and it lead to sexy time.
The reactions are far more severe than you would think you’d get from a little onesie.
“At least the baby is too young to read this <clutching at straws> Sadly people’s taste don’t seem to improve much when the kids grow-up,” added another.
“I’m the by-product of rape..This is exactly my reaction to the op,” commented another.
Similar versions of this onesie can be found all over the place, so clearly people are buying them, but not the people on this forum.
Would I buy it for someone? Nope, but I’m not sure I would go as far as these commenters did.
What do you think?
Saying the did think it was funny, but it’s also a little…tacky.
You’ll see people took a stronger stance against the little piece of clothing. If that bugs them, they’ll definitely want to avoid these other pieces.
To each their own, I guess.
Is it promoting baby alcoholism?
There’s no accounting for people’s sense of humor, it seems.
Well, except the people who dress them up. They’re clearly in on the joke.
Why would you dress your kid in this? It’s vulgar. I guess we all have our limits about what works for a joke.
Did any of these cross the line for you?
