Beaming up at the camera, at first glance, Enedina Vance’s little girl looks like any other happy baby.

On closer inspection, however, you’ll see that her daughter appears to have had her cheek pierced.

Enedina shared the image to actually speak out AGAINST body modifications in young children.

Unfortunately, a large number of her target audience were confused – and the mum has since received death threats and threats to call Child Protection Services.

Enedina’s image had in fact been doctored and the accompanying caption written ironically.

“It looks cute, right?!”

The mum-of-six wrote, “I just know she’s gonna [sic] love it!! She’ll thank me when she’s older lol. If she decides she doesn’t like it, she can just take it out, no big deal.

“I’m the parent, she is MY CHILD, I will do whatever I want!! I make all of her decisions until she’s 18, I made her, I own her!!
“I don’t need anyone’s permission, I think it’s better, cuter and I prefer her to have her dimple pierced.

“It’s NOT abuse!! If it was, it would be illegal, but it’s not. People pierce their babies everyday, this is no different.”
Staunchly and publicly anti-circumcision for baby boys – an topic she says she was uneducated about until the birth of her eldest son – Enedina intended to highlight the issue with her post.

The photoshopped image instead unnerved and angered other parents, who did not pick up on the sarcastic tone or the hashtag #sarcasm.
Enedina was forced to share two further posts, expressing her “disappointment” that people missed her point.
She also revealed she had received threats from other mums and dads.
“Wow, so as (hopefully) everyone knows, my last post was FAKE. I photoshopped that picture of the baby to look like I had her dimple pierced. It is in fact PHOTOSHOPPED.

“I seriously can not believe how many people missed that this was purely satirical, I actually used the hashtag #sarcasm , yet people were still threatening to beat me to death, call child protective services, & take away my children.”
The mum also added how many would not acknowledge her point about the connection between the dimple piercing and circumcision.
“It’s ironic they were ready to beat me to death over my excuses for piercing my baby, but then they used the same EXACT excuse to justify cutting their baby.
“How is it so triggering, so enraging to see my baby with a pierced dimple, but actually knowing a baby is being strapped down and forcibly having his most sensitive portion of his penis amputated, seems perfectly OK?”

    I see nothing wrong, I guess if you’re to stupid to see that’s it’s PHOTOSHOPPED, you would come to the understanding that it’s cute. Personally I don’t have a problem just as long as it’s fake and not real 😍

    This Actually Had Me Fooled. Lol. Thank Goodness I Decided To Read The Whole Thing. Far As The Threats, Yea If She Would Have ACTUALLY Got It Pierced, It Would’ve Been Something To Be Mad About, But Not To The Point Of Threatening Someone.

    It might be photoshopped but it’s wrong ! Death threats might be too much since the picture isn’t real .. but I see why it’s upsetting people

    I don’t agree with getting a baby cheeks pierced she’s way too young for that.

    That’s a real grown up piercing. Why would you want to implement that much pain on your child? It’s nothing like getting an ear pierced, and what if she pulls it out. I hope your cheek is pierced too.

    Why would you want to pierce your babies cheek? Yeah that’s your child, but guess what now she has to live with a whole in her face because you thought it was cute! I hope you pierced your own cheek too!

    I don’t think it’s acceptable for a child to get a piercing in her cheek. I’ll call cps as well!!!
