As I've already told everyone and is posted in my profile I am co-owner/creator of a website at babeintotalchargeofherself.com and our mascot is a naked baby on a motorcycle.  Just recently someone created a great deal of controvery because they saw our website and because they happen to know the child on the bike (also they are very angry with me right now) felt we are expoiting a child for profit and that we were putting that child in harms way .  Let me break that down for you.  Unlike Pampers, Huggies, Johnson and Johnson's, Coppertone, America's Home Videos and Anne Geddes (she takes naked baby pictures and makes a great deal of money selling her images)we are exploiting a child because we are using her on a website which you have to pay to join. Also keep in mind we have the permission of both parents to use this photo. Can someone explain this to me?  Then there is the fact that she is naked, however, to be fair, you can't even tell if it is a girl or a boy as her back is to the camera. Also, there is nothing on the site that indicates who this child is or that this child is in any way connected to the owners of the site. What do you think about all this?  Let me know, I'd like your feedback.

    • If you have permission from the parents then her opinion is best left to herself. And, like you said, all the companies you mentioned have images of a baby’s behind and they make a profit so she has no argument. Her problem is with you and she’s grasping at anything she can to cause trouble. I just hope she tires of all the time she’s wasting and leaves you along soon.

    • Is this person somehow connected to political correctness?  There will always be people who have to make waves about everything that comes down the pike, it is a wonder that the average person can actually live a normal life these days, as long as you have permission, it is none of anyone’s business.

    • Thank you so much for all your comments, they have been immensely affirming.  Actually it was my ex husband who saw the fan page on Facebook and also saw an article I wrote about How to Deal with a Bully, assumed it was him...and it was LOL!, got all pissed off and started calling people about it.  He claimed all these people were going to contact Facebook and have our page removed for inappropriate pictures and that he stepped in and asked them not to.  Went from the perpetrator to the rescuer all in his mind.  The irony of all this is he was trying to bully me!  LOL!

    • Sounds like bullying and the "green eyed monster" as your getting on with your life so he is stirring up trouble – sounds like he is making a fool of himself – my suggestion block him on Facebook and ban him from the group and tell him to get  a life

    • Don’t spend your energy even second guessing it. Some people just need to take a chill pill and call it a day

    • Yah, he certainly does need to chill, especially since he’s experiencing a lot of health issues that I am sure are directedly related to his vitriolic nature.  And yes, I believe he was quite shocked to see my website, he never gave me much credit when I was married to him.  And yes, he is making a fool of himself and I’m letting him.  LOL!  But it’s going to get better because I’m moving on and away.  Thanks for your input and encouragement, sometimes it does seem like a very dark and loneley road that I can’t seem to find an exit off of!  LOL!

    • I’ve since turned a lemon into lemonade.  We’ve decided to use her naked picture on Facebook like a paper doll.  I will periodically be changing her outfits as suggested by others or at my whim.  Here is the current outfit:

      Here is the previous one:

      FUNNY!
