    Mine are the same I have two holes in each ear that have not had earrings in for many many years. I also have a growth on my head (behind my ear) from an earring causing some skin thing.

    It sucks.

    I don't want to do DD's ears. No reason, just something I don't want to do at this point in time. Tbh, I don't notice whether they're done on other babies or not, unless it really stands out - cute earrings, in appropriate earrings, etc. I was out for dinner last weekend and noticed a toddler with dark skin, dark curly hair & gold studs in - she looked totally adorable.

    And you'll apply that logic if you see a baby with their belly button and eyebrow pierced?

    If not then you admit there's a line that you won't cross. Mine is just located a little further back than yours.

    I think it has very little to do with ego boosting and belittling others who do not share the same opinion. I don't agree with piercing a child's ears at a young age but I don't go around putting others down or make them feel any less because they like that. People can do what they want.

    I think referring to those who don't agree with early ear piercing as high and mighty mums who spend too much time Internet judging is over the top.

    Nothing to do with parenting styles .. Personalities etc..

    I think we all know what type I mean ( unless your living under a rock ) .. Kath and Kim and your kids called Ebony !

    I think I've made my opinion pretty clear, but I disagree strongly here. I know people who have pierced their daughters' ears who are anything but bogans.

    I don't think I actually judge the parents at all. They've acted within the law. The fact that it's legal is what I object to.

    IMO it doesn't look awful but I could never do it. I don't quiet understand the need for a child under 8 to have it done.
    I wouldn't put ear piercing in the same category as circumcision or belly piercing , some people take the debate to far. It's just absolutely unnecessary for a child to have their ears pierced plain and simple but I wouldn't look at a young child or baby with earrings and think anything more than plain and simply why???

    Oh...so your fictional characters, then.

    Really, though...that seems to me to be just a less direct way of calling people "bogans".

    The bogan/feral thing is something I've been pondering a bit lately. I do wonder if class/social stereotyping in this country will ever be viewed in a similar light to racial and sexual stereotyping.

    i grew up thinking an example of a "feral" was the fox that killed our chickens. I have since discovered that it means "supporters of a team other than my own".

    My mom had my ears pierced when I was a baby (9mths?) without telling my dad. They ended up getting incredibly infected and my skin grew over the tiny studs and my dad had to dig them out (they were itty bitty diamonds in gold so not a cheap metal). He was very p*ssed off obviously! To this day I still have problems with my ears. I can only wear certain metals or else my ears get infected and no matter what, if I don't wear earrings 24/7 my skin grows back over the holes and I have to poke through every time I want to wear earrings. I rarely wear earrings because of all this as they more often hurt than not.

    I personally wouldn't pierce my daughters ears until maybe 8-12 years old (if she was asking).

    I have never seen a baby in Albert Park with its ears pierced .. But go to Fountaingate and try to find one that's not .. I don't even think it's " bogans".. Maybe just outer suburban thing .. I am just going by what I see ..
