    That looks like a ballet costume the kid did not want to take off after practice.

    Kids usually start dancing in the Nutcracker in the role of a rat. It's the right period of the year for rehearsals...

    Do you have kids? Sounds like you don't. I don't think that the parent "dressed their kid" If my kid wanted to wear something like that, and pitched a fit. Go for it. I am not one for what people think anyways.

    I think it is cute!

    Agreed. At that age they love dressing up and the parent couldn't be bothered to argue. Mind you theres no change at 20......they still dress inappropriately :)

    I think how the child is dressed is FAR less an issue than the creepy thought that someone took a photo of this child and posted it on the Internet.

    I find the thought that someone thinks everyone is a closet peadophile more creepy personally......

    Lock up your children, they're EVERYWHERE!

    Actually, maybe that is peadobear in (a poor) disguise!

    The fact that you made that LEAP is freaking sick.

    This thread should be closed.

    They are everywhere. I work with JSO's. Juvenile Sex Offenders, ages 12-18. You would be shocked.


    That is why supervision is the key. Always ~ all times ~

    You made the leap by suggesting it was creepy for someone to take a picture and laugh at a kid who's dressed 'funny' in an unusual place for that form of dress. For what other reason would it be creepy?

    I'm sick for saying what you insinuated? Sheesh.... :rolleyes:

    If you're saying i'm sick for suggesting that it could be peadobear in disguise then perhaps.... But I couldn't help laughing after realising that the costume does have an unfortunate similarity to peadobear.

    In all seriousness, I think it's a pretty damning indictment of society actually when even parents have to think about the pictures they take of their kids incase someone else decides they're inappropriate, or adults have to consider approaching a distressed child incase someone thinks they're going to snatch them. Most of which is based on media scaremongering and little else. :(

    Oh please. I don't how you are making these leaps.

    I wouldn't some stranger taking a pic of my kid to post on the internet for ANY reason, let alone to be mocked I think it is creepy. Period.

    And yes, I do think it is strange you went straight to pedophiles. <shrug>

    Wait guys... What if that picture was taken by a lady who thought the kid was cute in his costume?

    I have a niece who dances ballet and I go see it every time. As a person in age to be a grand parent the bubblyness and energy of youth amazes me every time I see a kid... No perversion there just envy for wanting to go back in age.

    If you look at the eye level of the camera the picture was shot by a short person.

    Well, yes, but rehearsals are just rehearsals - I'm not sure that they'd be rehearsing full-dress in October, or even if the costumes are even ready yet. (I have a five-year-old who does ballet.)

    On the other hand, it could be another performance which is happening now.

    You're right, can't argue with that other than this could be a dressed costume without the fur so it's easier for the choreography in recognizing the different dancers from one another but who knows...

    I admire the self confidence of this child.:)

    Kids, by definition, are quite unselfconscious. That's why they can get away with saying or doing things that would embarass older people around them.

    Not a pet, as that wouldn't likely be allowed. It's a service animal.

    Apparently miniature horses are gaining in popularity as service animals. Can be housebroken, and are very smart. Their lifespans are also about 2 1/2 times that of the average service dog.

    Still seems odd though.
