    Because eventually she's going to grow up, go out into the world and we'll have to deal with her.

    Yeah, but generally what I see happening is the media has a slow news day so they decide to stir up some shit. They report on something that really isn't even news -- 4 years olds like to dress up and change their clothes a lot!!!1!!1! News at 11! -- find some extreme example of it that often isn't even that extreme (like the girl who had her ears pinned back) and then someone posts a link to it on the internet and we're off with people pointing it out as an example of how the world as we know it has gone to pot and lots of wailing and gnashing of teeth about "kids today." Because there were no little girls with too many clothes back when I was kid ...

    I just think it's not really discussion when this happens. It's a lot of hand-wringing and people piling on and often the original story isn't even worth all the

    I posted it because I thought the whole story was ridiculous, including the mother's attitude towards it all. I'm sorry if that offended some of you.

    It wasn't the story. It was the (predictable) reaction to it. And I'm not offended. Just kind of exasperated with humanity.
