Babywear with rude slogans - not Ok?
Is it Ok that there are newborn T-shirts and babygrows on sale with the phrase 'All daddy wanted was a blowjob'?
If you've just read that and it's caused a sharp intake of breath, you're not alone. We're all for freedom of speech here at Gurgle and we'd like to think we have a sense of humour. We also believe that parenting is a whole boatload easier if you don't take yourself too seriously, but this honestly pulled us up short.
If this was an aside your other half made down the pub with his mates for some cheap laughs, fine, but to put it on an item of child's clothing is appalling (we know, they can't read yet, blah, blah).
And while we're on it, we're just as annoyed by the children's T-shirts that say 'Future MILF', and 'I'm the reason we can't have nice things'.
It's not just that the words are inappropriate, we find the sentiment just as upsetting - frankly you might as well hang a sign around your baby's neck that says 'Unwanted'.
And to make matters worse, these items aren't stocked by some niche retailer hidden in the depths of the internet - they're available on Amazon!
Come on guys, you can do better than that.
