If you were to have a baby girl, would you get her ears pierced?
And you are?

I think it's silly to jam accessories into plucked holes of infants who can't even speak yet just to enforce a sense of gender normativity on them when they don't even know what that means.

Okay, so I was 16 when I got my ears pierced. I waited so long to get them done, mainly because I'm a huge chicken. So I would have prefered if my parents had done it when I was a baby. That way it's out of the way and I wouldn't remember the pain.
But it's up to the parents ultimately. I totally get a parent's reasoning to not get it done and prefer the child to make their own choice.

No, I would let her make that choice for herself when she got older.
Absolutely not. That's sick. It shouldn't even be legal.
I would wait till she was older and could decide for herself.
I wouldn't. It would be her choice.
I'm hoping to have at least two daughters in the future. Yes, if I was to have a couple of daughters, they can get their ears pierced.
Why? If she wanted to get her ears pierced when she got older I wouldn't care, but putting jewlery on a baby seems stupid.
Not right when she born. But if she wants them, sure she can go get them.
Are you asking this because you think it would hurt after she is not a baby?
do have a daughter and yes we did pierce her ears
No. She can decide that herself once she's old enough
no, if she wants them pierced she can do it latter in life
No, kids aren't dolls for you to hurt for aesthetic purposes. It should be their decision if they want their ears priced.
no, she can decide to do that when she is older. i would not want to violate her bodily integrity.
no i wouldn't... im not having kids, but if i were to have kids and it came out a girl, that would be a failure
No - at least not until she's old enough.
I wouldn't do anything permanent to her that she didn't request, and was within reason.
Not until she was old enough to ask for it herself.

No, I think it's pretty awful when people do that to a baby. I had my ears pierced when I was pretty young, not too young, like 6 - 7 and I regret it so I'd want my kid to wait before they got that.
No. I would allow her to make that decision for herself when she's old enough.
No, that's her choice when she's of age.
My little girl is three and she's not getting her ears pierced anytime soon.
If she starts mithering for it when she's a bit older then yes she can, but not this side of 6.
No, I wouldn't.
I personally think it is the parents choice in whether they can get there child's ears pierced but what you have to remember is if the child doesn't like it when they grow up they won't wear them and it will heal over sorted.
I don't even have my own ears pierced, and never have, so no. I would let her decide when she gets older. I wouldn't be putting earrings on her so they would just close back up anyway.
No! I think it's disgusting when people do that. Whenever I see a baby with pierced ears I immediately assume the parents are irresponsible assholes.
No, I wouldn't. I would let her make that choice and I wouldn't want to see her in pain.
I got my ears pierced when I was 2 and Iv forever loved wearing earings so I would definantly have my daughter get them at a young age
No way O_o I'd leave the decision whether she wants to get her ears pierced up to her when she gets older. A baby can't make that decision.
Of course!! Eventually 😛👽👍🏻!!!
Yes, I would have them pierced.
No, I'd let my child decide later on.
Never thought about it. My parents got mine pierced when I was about 1 so I don't remember it... it would have to be discussed with my s/o when the time comes I guess
Absolutely not. If she's interested, I might let her get her ears pierced when she is eleven or twelve.
Yes, I've had mine pierced as a baby. I grew up with earrings and I'm happy I have them.
Yes i got mine done when i was very young, dont even remember it :)
No, I want to give her the opportunity to decide for herself.
I wouldn't let her unless she asked.
probably not but I am glad that my parents did because now I have more 5 piercings lol
I'll let her decide if she wants it, same goes for a boy.
My sister had her ears pierced at 5 months. Nothing went wrong, my parents went to a professional of course.
I could have gotten my ears pierced that young also, but I was born 2 months early so my mom wanted to be safe so she waited until I was six years old to pierce my ears (plus I begged her). I don't see anything wrong with piercing a baby's ear. Most of my friends had their ears pierced before they were two years old.
Not until she is 13, whixh is when I was allowed.
I had my daughters ears pierced at 11 months and it was a great decision. I'd definitely do it again. She only cried for like 20 seconds.
Hell no. Wtf? Why would anyone hurt a baby?
I never understand why a parent would do that
