Jessica Simpson Dresses Maxwell in Teeny Bikini & the Backlash Is Mind-Boggling

Eye Roll 294

maxwell drew bikiniOh. My. God!! Everybody's talking about Jessica Simpson's appearance on Katie Couric's new talk show, Katie -- not just because of the star's big "post-baby body" reveal, but for another baby body: 4-month-old Maxwell Drew, looking unbelievably adorable in a teeny yellow bikini. HOW CUTE IS THIS BABY?! Those cheeks! Those legs! I could eat her up, oh yes I could! But would you believe that people are criticizing Simpson for showing off this snapshot to Couric ... because they think it's inappropriate?! Oh for Pete's sake, people, really?!

First of all, completely decent, non-pervert types have been photographing babies in the buff for ages -- even my grandmother proudly displayed posed professional pictures on the wall of her kids as babies, lying on their tummies, bums bare (and no one ever accused that woman of being anything less than uber-conservative, let me tell you).

Second of all, if you really want to read THAT much into the picture, you could say Simpson was making a joke about trading her swimsuit model past for new motherhood, or that because the bikini is crocheted like an old-fashioned bathing suit, Simpson is calling for a return to old-fashioned values, or that Maxwell Drew's baby mohawk is an anti-establishment statement against modern beauty standards.

OR you could say, "OH MY GOD, look at that adorable baby in her cute yellow bikini!"

Sheesh. The world needs to get a grip.

Do you think it's such a big deal that Jessica Simpson dressed her baby in a bikini?

I dressed my baby in a blue polka dot bikini and I have to say she was super-cute! And so is this little darling, even if she does have a boy name.

I almost choked on my food at the one person talking about how the baby is posed in a "playboy pose". SERIOUSLY??? And you never put a baby in a bikini or bathing suit withOUT taking them in water? WTH???? My daughter is now 19 and an honors college student. I dressed her in plenty a bikini when she was a little baby INCLUDING one that was MINE that my uncle brought home for me from Cambodia in the late 60's. It's NOT for swimming really either and it's OLD -- but it sure looked darn cute on my baby and I'm guessing on me in the late 60's as well. God, people really need to get a grip. IN a million years I wouldn't have found this picture of her baby in that little bikini perverse or wrong. Seriously makes me wonder about the people that DO.

Why do adult women put on teenie bikinis? Hmmm....each parent has there own beliefs but I can understand the criticism

i see nothing wrong with this pic!! I have a 18 mo old daughter and i have pics of her in nothing but a diaper.. and if she could fit a two piece bathing suit she would wear one.. i think they are cute it doesnt matter what any mom does someone ALWAYS HAS SOMETHING NEGATIVE to say about how they take care of their child.. i have learned to smile and walk away you go jessica and dont let ppl get you down... your a great mommy!

I think it's a beautiful pic! Like this blogger wrote people have been talking nude pics of there kids for ages! I have some of mine in the bathtub and I show off I'm not a pedophile. But babies butts are cute. I mean that's why ALL parents do it. That little sweety is in a cute bikini.

First of all, a bathing suit is not in any way associated with sexuality in its own definition. Maybe in a man's or media's definition but a bathing suit's purpose is to COVER PRIVATE AREAS. Second, I have 2 little boys, 3 and 1, and they're completely naked half the time like I was when I was a child and my mother and father and their mothers and fathers. Seriously! This is an adorable picture of a baby girl in a swimsuit. All you people that think there is something wrong with it are either too caught up in media and society expectations or too judgmental and sick to even be commenting on this.
