Mother Receives Death Threats After Piercing Daughter’s Cheek For ‘Moral Reasons’

David Avocado Wolfe



Enedina Vance from Fostoria, Ohio has received death threats after posting an image of her baby’s pierced cheek on Facebook. Her post was shared over 12,000 times with promises to report her to child services left in the comment section. The mother responded to the threats by saying “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!”

The Message Behind The Photo

While shocked Facebook users continued to threaten Enedina’s life and take her children away with each share, Enedina looked on with a secret. The mother of six had actually doctored the image to make a point about the circumcision of baby boys.

She wrote, “It’s ironic that people were ready to bear me to death over my excuses for piercing my baby, but then they used the same EXACT excuse to justify cutting their baby.”

Enedina is part of a group of people against circumcision, along with any form of genital cutting of children. She posted the photo of her daughter to share her belief that parents should not have the right to change their children’s bodies in any way, before they are old enough to consent.

She wrote, “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? How can society threaten death over one, but encourage and support the other? Piercing is bad, but cutting is accepted as the norm?”

Enedina continued, “Hypocrisy, that’s what that is. Sexism. Superstition. Fear. People would rather continue to inflict an unnecessary and irreversible ritual onto their defenseless infant, than to have to admit that they don’t know. They don’t know why it’s done, if it has to be done, what the functions of that body part are, or what happens if they were to just leave it alone. So the cycle continues, all because parents are too afraid or to proud to admit that they just don’t know.”

“Education is key and the truth is, genital cutting is completely unnecessary. It’s NOT cleaner, not healthier, and definitely does not look better. But most importantly, it is NOT your body to alter or modify for aesthetic purposes.”

Along with many death threats and negative reactions, Enedina also received support from Facebook users who understood her post and her message.

One woman wrote, “Don’t let these keyboard warriors keep you from being you, I personally loved this post because it hits the nail on the head for about 80 percent of parents and how they alter their children for aesthetic purposes. All of my boys are intact and if I ever had a daughter SHE will decide when and if she wants her ears pierced.”
