Because it’s never too soon to make young people hate their bodies.

That’s what it seems like after apparel company Wry Baby produced onesies with “I Hate My Thighs” printed across the front. Many have condemned the controversial clothes, going so far as to call it baby fat-shaming. One of the critics was Ms. magazine editor, Michele Kort, who wrote a blog post addressing the company:

“There’s something icky about projecting fat awareness on babies. The Wry Baby website deems this ‘a tiny statement regarding self-image.’ Hahaha. Actually, it’s a pretty large statement for a 10-pounder to be making – a harbinger of things to come later in a child’s life, especially if that child is a girl.”

Wry Baby responded to Kort’s criticism and the rest of the backlash with the following comment:

“We couldn’t agree more about body image. That’s why we made an ironic joke about it. Obviously no baby would or should hate their thighs!”

Nonetheless, Wry Baby was clearly feeling the heat; they pulled “I Hate My Thighs” from their available apparel, replacing it with a “Love For My Leg Rolls” onesie, a design shoppers voted they preferred.
