Do you think that piercing a baby ear is trashy?

I do not think it is thrashy at all.

  • Trashy, not necessarily. Selfish and unnecessary. Yes.

  • Trashy is not the word that comes to mind, but mean does. I hate to see a person hold a baby down in a chair while they pierce her ears. It just bothers me. I think ear peircing is a personal choice that should be decided when the child is of an appropriate age....6, 7, 8 ect.

  • Me and all my sisters had our ears pierced before we were a year old.

    If i have a baby girl, I'm undecided about whether I would pierce her ear or not.

    If I chose not to, I would never look down on another woman who did. I don't find it trashy at all

  • I don't think I'd consider it trashy, but for my own kids I waited until they wanted it done for themselves.

  • Since you asked, I'm not a fan. I don't know if I'd say trashy. I definitely don't like the way it looks on babies, though, and it kind of seems like people are really trying to make sure baby girl is identifiable as a girl. I think gender invades our lives quickly enough as it is...

  • Nothing wrong with it, but my daughter now 6 has had her ears pierced and removed twice. A small child cannot take care of them properly, and I won't have her ears pierced again till she's older and more responsible.

  • I agree with anonymous 12:47. For a girl I do not think is trashy. But a boy it does look bad.

  • Trashy no, but wrong yes. My daughter will not be allowed to pierce her ears until she is old enough to make that decision herself. Why would you FORCE a child to have their ears pierced when they aren't even old enough to talk yet?
