Looks like a Walmart employee was so bored out of his head that he found it to be very necessary to report what seems like innocent, harmless photographs of kids bath-time taken by a proud parent to capture their kids’ cute moments to the authorities. Read the article here.
Can you imagine the tumultuous times the parents and kids experience as a direct result of the most under-handed and not the most intelligent of decision made by an ignorant Walmart employee who probably just doesn’t know any better? What right does the employee have over those photos? So self-righteous are we, now? It really is taking the piss out of an innocent candid shots, I’d say.
I’m pretty certain we have a few of those photos tucked away in some family album, and I’m sure under no circumstances were our parents advocating child pornography then. In fact, I remember seeing a few photos of me clad in nothing but my glorious underwear when I was about 3-5 years old. Those pictures, are still the standing jokes in my family gatherings as my parents found the joy of relating funny (sometimes embarrassing) stories of how tomboy-ish I used to be. Absolutely nothing offensive or perverted about that, me-thinks. At least, nothing damaging; and in fact, I actually welcome those stories of me. It does make me happy to listen to them and while life was not a bed of roses for them then, it is nice to know that my parents had their share of fun and entertainment raising me as their child.
