An Australian mother ignited a firestorm on social media after posting that she won’t allow her husband to bathe their young daughters “because they have different body parts.”
“So hubby is upset with me because I have told him that I don’t [want him to] wash our two daughters in the bath or shower. I just don’t feel comfortable for a man to do this,” the woman, whose identity has remained anonymous, posted, according to the Daily Mail.
“I have said I don’t have any issues with him bathing our son as well, he’s a boy,” she added. “I just believe that girls should be getting washed by their mothers and boys get the same from their fathers. It’s just got to do with the fact that mom and daughters have the same parts, same goes for men and their sons.”
The mother claimed she did not want to give her son and two daughters “any chance” to think about if they were ever molested.
“People play the ‘I was molested card’ so very often these days, I just don’t want in any way to give my kids the chance to even think about that,” she wrote, admitting that her husband was not on the same page.
“Hubby thinks I think ill of him, but it’s always been this way for me,” she said.
While she did find some sympathetic support online, the majority of the reactions on social media condemned the mother’s decision, accusing her of “sexualizing bath time.”
Whatever is behind this, and I think she has her own agenda it’s harming the girls as they now think it’s wrong for daddy to do this, what else is she telling them?

How do you stay married to someone you think is capable of molesting your child? Is it only during a bath that something awful can happen?

Wonder if she complained when the husband was changing the daughters nappy at 3am after giving her a feed? ?

Strange she should even think this.

Load of nonsense. How are you going to ecplain this to your daughters? They will believe men can’t be trusted. Shameful.

I love how she minimises victims of child abuse while at the same time assuming her husband is an abuser. “People play the ‘I was molested card’ so very often these days, I just don’t want in any way to give my kids the chance to even think about that,” ???
