it's okay to peirce a baby's ears even though the child has no say on what is being done to their body, but then when the child is 15 and wants her belly done they say no... What part of it's her body to people not get? What gives parents the right to choose which holes are okay and which aren't?Answer Question

some piercings are difficult to deal with. Ears heal rather quickly, but other piercings (like the belly button) can take months to heal properly. Also... ear piercings are not generally viewed as a sign of sexuality and the belly piercing often is.
Personally, I don't want my tween/teen rolling up her shirt and down her waist band to show off a mid-drift piercing. There really is a big difference in people looking at your child's ear versus looking at her exposed mid-drift. Tongue piercings are also viewed by many, if not most people, as a sexual thing.

I pierced my child's ears before she was a year old.... My mom did mine before I was a year old. My earrings didn't hurt my personality and I don't resent my Mom for making me look like a "girl" I like my earrings and my daughter likes her earrings.....
Now ask a Q about FEMALE circumcision, and you'll have a good reason to say that parents are mutilating their child (or what ever else you are insinuating about ear piercings)
