Some things I guess we can never let go of completely, and that's one of them for me.

    No need to apologize-the reason I didn't post about that picture is that I also have deep-seated reasons for seeing red at a such a distasteful picture, if nothing else it shows a lack of intelligent judgement for someone to even think of doing something as stupid as this and finding it funny. You'd better believe how many morons will get ideas from seeing this.

    LOL. I wasn't apologizing for my views on this subject - they remain the same. I was apologizing to Sowa for snipping at her.

    I perhaps could have been clearer - this pic was posted on a Cheezburger site called "Parenting Fails". In that context I found it amusing because I knew it was not to be taken seriously - and the site managers would have contact info for the posters if they had concerns. If it was posted in another context, I too would wonder!

    yes I too understood what previous posters meant... I just don't agree

    and that's A OK

    I don't think this photo is going to create child abuse. the people who are going to abuse their kids are already doing it... I highly doubt anyone is going to stumble upon that photo and be like "HEY this would be a great way to abuse my kids.". Will some idiot see it and maybe think to try it? it's possible but I still don't see it causing any real harm to any real children.

    I am also not a fan of punishing people because other people are stupid lol. I'm not going to not do something because someone who is stupid might see it and do it incorrectly. I think we should take all the warnings off labels and let the "stupid people" problem take care of itself rather than trying to protect these people from themselves lol.

    On a serious note though... I just don't see this photo causing any future abuse of other children. abusers will abuse... no photo is going to make or break that




    R.I.P my dear Sweet Teddy. You will be missed forever. We love you.

    No point so far made has gone over my head. Just an FYI to anyone who thought differently.

    Never, ever underestimate the stupidity of people. This was in my home town this past weekend, and it references another dumb act involving painter's tape.

    Good grief...I guess I can rest my case also. This is besides some of the other horrors happening every day.

    Just ban the product. After all, its existence it the real cause of these stories.

    No tape, no child abuse!
    The one eyed man in the kingdom of the blind wasn't king, he was stoned for seeing light.

  10. That case also involves a dog cage - those must also be banned and people who have posted "cute" photos of their kid climbing in the dog cage held accountable!

    And he threatened to use electricity - so that should be banned too?

    Political correctness (and censorship) take many forms.

    Methinks this is the same silliness as always. If you ban one weapon people will find another. Rope existed before tape, swords before guns, etc, etc. If we just ban those pesky humans ... then the whole world would be politically correct, right?

    Says he did this as punishment . . . not sure how it can also be a "joke that went too far". I never personally doubted that in many cases duct tape can be and is used to cause harm. I'd already heard several cases of these punishments.

    My ONLY point is that the particular photo on this thread didn't offend me.

    And my ONLY point is that I found it offensive and inappropriate and suggestive. I never said anything about banning duct tape or dog cages or electricity, as one poster mentioned. Puh-leeze!!!!! - give me credit for having some intelligence, regardless of what some people may think!

    The whole duct tape things just leads me back to the Anthony case and that just makes me sick.

    I don't think this photo is "that" bad. Plus, she does have her stuffed animal with her.... (just trying to lighten the mood).
    Our goal in life should be - to be as good a person as our dog thinks we are.

    Thank you for the siggy, Michelle!

    Tallahasee made a wallet out of duct tape with his son Buck.
