Woman Is Planning on Piercing Her Newborn Child’s Tongue!
UPDATE: OK, it happens to the best of us. Turns out the story isn't true - it's a satirical piece. A big thanks to Facebook fan Kelcey Beaner who showed us the light: "The article is satire (aka not real.) It is being used as an analogy for circumcisions. It's meant to sound ridiculous and cause a reaction ... Calm down everyone... Not everything you read on the internet is true."
Hey, how many times have you seen a clip from The Daily Show and thought Jon Stewart was being serious?
Getting your child's ears pierced I can understand but this is going way too far! I came across this story and I was absolutely shocked!
An unidentified woman is planning on piercing her newborn child's tongue! She explains that even though plenty of women (and some men) get their tongues pierced as adults, "somehow it’s barbaric when a baby is involved."
She goes onto list other reasons as to why her and her husband are planning on doing this such as traditions, cultural reasons, etc.
Keep in mind her cultural ideas include "hanging out at Hot Topic but not buying anything, and suggestively licking at strangers across a crowded Applebee’s." And one her reasons to do it is "we thought about letting her decide for herself when she gets older, but ultimately we think it’s better to do it before she’s old enough to remember the pain."
Now who in their right mind would want to do that to a child! Good luck lady trying to get someone to do it. Even her OB threatened to report her to child protection services. Her response: "Uh, yeah right, doc! Try and get between a momma bear and her cub, and you’ll get the claws!"
Check out more of her reasoning's in the article. (Warning some language NSFW.)
