I thought i'd wait for my knee-jerk reaction to pass before posting a reply-which would be:Yes,all this pc bullsheet is getting preposterously out of
But,on reflecting,im in two minds about this-FIRST OFF-i think most parents have taken snapshots of their kids naked in the bath-as all parents who
read this already know-there's few things cuter than a laughing lil bebbeh or toddler enjoying a bath.I remember i still have a pic of my youngest
daughter in the bath(although one only sees the upper body) with a wet dishcloth draped over her head.My mother in law lived with us then,and she
insisted on drying the dishcloths by hanging them over the towelrails(each to their own i guess) and when my daughter was in the bath,she would
grab one,dunk it in the water,pull it over her head,and make funny sounds-we all thought this was hilarious,and i took one or two pics.Its a fun,good
memory-thats the whole point of photo's.
There's the time she was still in diapers(and Only diapers,this is Africa,it gets super-humid) when she took them off,to use our Great Dane's large
waterbowl as a kiddie-pool(slime floating on top regardless,and Dane's slime a Lot when they drink)
:lolOut came the camera for that cute funny moment!
Stuff like that,as every parent knows,are precious memories,to this day we as a family still have a good giggle at some of those old pics-its moments
from a life,and usually hilarious ones.
BUT there ARE sick/evil people in this world,twisted people-and i can understand how some folks may argue that innocent pics like that may fall into
hands,or be seen by eyes that dont view nude kiddies as adorable only-but unfathomably,as sex objects.Maybe this employee was molested as a child,or
has a relative who was.Its understandable that some folks may think that in this day and age-its not such a good idea anymore to take nude pics of
one's kiddies-however innocent the intention.Or you may find that this Walmart employee,and those who would report parents for these pics,have never
been parents themselves,and really have no idea how natural it is to take pics of just about Every little thing your kids do when they're small-and
so cute that Every lil thing they do,just has to be recorded for memory-including bath pics,or when they just happen to be running around naked for a
minute doing something funny.
There has been much more awareness in recent years of the massive problem society faces with paedophilia and sexual abuse of children-some will
overreact sometimes,or act in the wrong situation,just because they feel rather safe than sorry?
I dont think Walmart,or any specific employee should bear the blame at the root,for this mistaken overreaching-the problem at the root is that society
has members who are sick in their heads and in their souls,crippled individuals who spoil and corrupt everything that is pure and good.This,and the
understandable urge to protect innocent children from adults with f-ed up intentions, will unfortunately sometimes manifest in that way.
I remember when i was a young teenager,my friends and i,girls all,could walk home from a movie at night alone,and we were perfectly safe-when i was a
younger child,i would take the train and go into the city by myself-that type of thing would be far too dangerous these days in most parts of the
world-and rightly so-there are more predators now,children are prime targets,and crime has reached extremely disturbing levels just about
everywhere.Our way of life has changed-this is just another sign of that.
