A mother posts a photo of her 'pierced' baby – and gets the outrage she wants

Enedina Vance has been fielding the wrath of the internet after she posted a photo of her six-month-old baby with what appears to be a pierced dimple last week.

"Vance meant for the post to be tongue-in-cheek - she included a hashtag that read "#sarcasm" - but the post spread far beyond the audience she meant it for, and a number of people appeared to take it seriously.

"I'm the parent, she is MY CHILD, I will do whatever I want!" she wrote in the post.

The image generated mixed reactions. Vance says she's received death threats and other hateful messages from them.

But her plot to spark outrage among parents for purportedly piercing her infant child's cheek was successful.

On one side, those who thought the piercing was real. People who commented on the photo called Vance "a bad mother", among other insults.

Another user also claimed to have called the services and said they hoped her baby would be taken away from her. I don't need anyone's permission, I think it's better, cuter, & I prefer her to have her dimple pierced.

So I got the baby girl's dimple pierced!

"It felt so outdated, so primitive", she told CNN.

A 2012 report from the American Academy of Pediatrics said "There is no compelling reason to deny boys their legitimate right to make their own informed decision when they are old enough to do so".

Vance said she ultimately believes children have the right to decide themselves.

One woman said she was going to make sure authorities knew about the picture, calling Vance an "abusive and an unfit mother".
