Jessica Simpson Is Getting Heat for Putting Her Baby in a Bikini

Okay, the sexualization of young children IS a problem.  But is it inappropriate and somehow deviant to put a bikini on an INFANT?

Jessica Simpson is finding out that some people actually feel that way, after she showed off a photo of her daughter Maxwell in a two-piece on Katie Couric’s show this week.

Here’s the photo in question:

In addition to the usual crackpots on Twitter, Jessica ticked off Claude Knights of a child welfare charity called Kidscape.  He said, quote, “It is very disturbing to see a young baby presented to the world wearing a bikini.

“Celebrity choices carry great influence, as can be seen by the manner in which their accessories and behaviors are copied widely.

“It is to be hoped that parents will understand that ‘baby bikinis’ are totally inappropriate, and that they contribute to the sexualization and commercialization of childhood.”
