rachel85: Actually no, I just find people are way to sensitive on what mothers/fathers do or put their child in. No matter what as a parent we can’t win. Some may find that type of clothing funny, me not so much but I am not going to make a thread about it on here. Personally I hate the little boy clothing with skulls on it but am I going to make thread about it. Nah to each their own.
My little boy loves Mickey Mouse and has all kinds of Mickey Mouse clothing if some stranger is going to judge me for letting him wear that so be it.

I don’t think all of them are bad.
To be fair, the boobies one is true haha.
I also like the onesie going around that says something like “Dad’s a nerd, but I’m proof he scored at least once.”

They are disgusting. I’m sorry but the word “trash” automatically comes to mine when I see a parent put that crap on their kid.
The world just can’t wait to strip anything pure of its innocence. It the same memes with babies cussing..gross and not cute or funny.

MrsUPS: Ahh, but that’s the name of the French royal family. The whiskey came much later… In Europe, there are plenty of girls named Margarita, who weren’t named after a cocktail, either.

Yeah, these types of things really bother me. They were made for a certain kind of people without class.
I’m also a little bothered with things like “WTF!?” and “LOL” on shirts for kids. I’ve mostly only seen this stuff for girls, but I just can’t understand why you’d buy that for your kids.

blue_cat77: I know there are girls named that and it is possible it is true about bourbon, but that is not where my cousin got it from, he got it from the alcohol. I love him but he aint smart enough for it to have come from what you mentioned. Also, I doubt anyone (and I know so far, around here at least) that hears that is his name will relate it to the royal family since we are from the US.

I don’t feel the “lock up your daughters” one is sexualized, to me it’s like a onesie that says “stud muffin” or “handsome man” or something.
But anything that mentions boobs or BJs or daddy scoring is a bit tacky to me

Skittles131: I find them so tacky. What ever happened to children being young and innocent?

Sassygrn: I brought it up as a forum topic because it is my business. This is how our society acculturates males and females. As a pp mentioned, we put children in gender roles from the day they’re born (and arguably before that). Plus, just like the clothes adults wear, it is the message we are sending the world about ourselves (or in the case of children, the message parents are sending the world about their selves and their child).
I find it off-putting that this kind of dress is acceptable and popular in our culture. I brought it to the forum to discuss, as I do with many other things.
And I already said, if this is being uptight, then I’m OK with that. I personally consider myself to be challenging the gender stereotypes of our culture and when women do that, people say they are “complaining” or “uptight” — so I’ll embrace the label uptight! 🙂

to each their own. if people didn’t buy them, the manufacturers would stop making them. but i would guess that younger parents are more likely to put them on their kids than older first time moms.
also, i do find some of them funny like “i love boobies” but the “tequila making clothes fall off” is not funny on a baby.

Skittles131: Don’t worry – it’s a legit vent.
I like cute caption clothes on babies (i.e. one of my friends just had a baby and he has a shirt that says, “My older sister is a pug.” b/c my friend always had pugs), but the sexualized ones are gross IMO (this includes the “I love boobies” ones, ew). However, I have noticed that gender stereotypes in the form of baby clothing are more prevalent than before, and it makes me sad b/c isn’t it 2014?
On the off chance, that Darling Husband and I have a kid, we are not finding out the gender beforehand. Society needs to seriously get with the program and grasp the concept that putting blue clothes on your girl baby will not make her (::gasp:: the horror ::gasp::) manly or putting pink clothes on a boy will not make him (OH, THE HORROR!) feminine.

Yes I totally agree, I hate those kinds of saying on babies’ clothing! They just gross me out and I don’t find them the least bit humerous. My siser and I actually had the same rant about these types of sayings on babies just last week! just..ick.

I’m with you! I have a chuckle when I see them on the rack, but I would NEVER put my kid in them. They’re tacky in my opinion, but to each their own. My immediate family and I make silly (and sometimes mildly inappropriate) jokes about our babies, but we’d never advertise that type of thing on facebook.

Skittles131: I totally agree with your concept, but why specifically does “lock up your daughters” bother you? I got a birth announcement with a chubby baby boy that said that, and I thought it was cute, not offensive or sexual? Maybe I missed the point of the announcement though
