Why? Why Why Why Why Why?

WHY do people put nakey pics of their children - small & large - on their blogs?

WHY!?

Don't these moms know it makes me feel borderline inappropriate to look at their nekkid, small children?

Don't these moms know that these pics will be on the internet forever? That these pics have the potential for being perpetuated in various and sundry digital places ad infinitum?

Don't these moms know there's such a thing as internet stalkers and pedophiles and all other sorts of twisted yucky people out there?

THEN WHY? Why do they post child nudity? No matter how "cute" they think it is? (Help me out here!)

I saw a naked kid pic today and was like: Don't do that!

I'm guessing they're naive, is all. Their minds don't work that way and they haven't had the opportunity to wrap their heads around the fact that other peoples, bad people, do. Scary to contemplate.

I have a hard time posting pictures of my kids shirtless. And even then, I only post the boys because, well, what you said.

I share photos (not naked) of my kids and I feel weird sometimes about even that. Sometimes I question if I feel weird because I really really should. Or if I feel weird because everyone is using fake names and no pictures now. It's tricky.
But not naked. That's not tricky. It's not like I'd walk around with the nakey photos in my wallet, why would I put them on the internet?
I think it MUST be what Kimberly said?

I'm with you on this. It's disturbing.

I know!! I am totally with you. I don't get it. And I don't like it.

Right behind naked, are the Moms who let their little girls dress skimpy. Speaking from experience, It doesn't take much to catch the eye of a pedophile. We live in a scary world.

They post 'em because nakey babies/kids are stinking cute. Personally, I don't even post pictures of my kids faces. Even so a couple of my kids' pictures have been nabbed for who knows what. I have a privatecollection of my nakey cuties from when they were all perfect and innocent.

My guess is that the mommy culprits are sorta just caught up in their own private, happy little mommy lives and aren't thinking in terms of the wide world and foreverness of the 'net and just who has internet access...

Amen!! I visited a blog once with a naked girl (toddler)(very very naked... it was weird) and yet the mom didn't use her childrens names. (which is fine) She is worried about strangers putting the name Susie with a face but yet it's okay for "child 1" to be put with her nakedness??!?! Oy!!

I totally agree with on this one! I feel uneasy about putting pic's of my kids in their swimming suits up on my blog, (I didn't)!
