Why Kylie's Baby Ear Piercing Controversy Is Pretty Lame

New mom Kylie Jenner shared a video of her 5-month-old daughter Stormi yesterday. It was sweet and cute, and despite the fact that the biggest news of the day was that Jenner landed the cover of Forbes magazine, the attention shifted to Stormi’s tiny ears and, tinier still, earrings. Twitter weighed in with concerns of how babies are not able to consent to said piercings, and furthermore, the choice seems trivial as a means to merely gender identify a child. To say the topic of piercing babies’ ears is polarizing is stating the obvious here.
