    [​IMG]


    The photo was taken one night when the boy was sick, he was vomiting and pooping, so his father cradled him in the shower to comfort him and clean him up. The mom is a professional photographer and posted the photo on Facebook.

    Seems like a good Dad.

    I hate when people post pics of their sick kids on Facebook. There this girl I know who's kid was in the hospital for a week and she was constantly posting pics of the kid and selfies with her in the bed holding her.

    If it was my kid I'd do the same. I have a 2 yr old son and if he need ANYTHING, there's no extant I would go to see him not suffer. No need to share that shit w/the world though. That's why this country is turning into a limb wristed nation of pussies

    There was--It was flagged and reported, Facebook took it down, then put it back, took it down. Finally they apologized



    “This photo was mistakenly removed by our team and does not violate our Community Standards,” a company spokesperson said in an email. “We are sorry for this mistake and have restored the photo to the page.”

    Facebook’s about-face comes two weeks after the image was first posted, along with the touching story behind it, something just about every parent can relate to. With Fox feverish and losing liquids from both ends, his father carried him into the shower and held him close under the running water, both to cool the boy and to wash everything down thedrain.

    I have a friend with a kid who can be sickly at times. She does the same thing. I think it's morbid.

    Some of the comments :facepalm:

    “I consider myself a great dad and have have comforted my children many times when they’ve been ill including cleaning them up after vomiting but never once sat them on my naked penis to do so,” one userwrote.

    “Looks like pedophilia and child molestation,” claimedanother.

    “The male better be wearing some swim trunks,” a third insisted, “cause if.he’s not he’s acreep!”

    “We were getting into the shower!” Thomas replies. “Why am I going to let my puking son puke for a minute or two extra while I go find my swimmingtrunks?”

    My Dad would have done the same for me. Although my Mom would not have taken pictures.

    How is rubbing your penis up against him going to make him feel better? :worried:

    I've done that.

    Easiest way to try and comfort, and clean up, a crying shit machine.

    One of the problems with pedophilia (among many) is that it causes us to unduly vilify normal relations between adults - specifically parents - and children. There is nothing wrong with this photo, or the situation it depicts. Unfortunately, because there are some very sick people out there, we might view this photo as inappropriate. Even I had to question the wisdom of the photographer posting it publicly, if only because of the blowback she might receive.

    She's a professional photographer and didn't post the picture until 2 years later. It's not of her sick child, it's of a tender father/son moment

    I think it is cool, and would likely do the same for my 2 year old.

    On the other hand, I wouldn't feel the need to share it with anyone. Not sure why they did....fame whoreing?

    It's an incredibly sweet, loving, private moment between a couple of parents and their young child.






    Somewhere along the line though, the 'private' part got overlooked.

    The picture was actually taken two years ago. Heather only decided to post it to Facebook recently, as a sort of protest after the image created a stir in a photo class she was taking. “They were just hung up on them both being nude and being in the shower. I had crossed a line,” she explained in a post.
