What do you think about boys haveing earrings?
not an issue, unless the parents say no.
Culture / fashion issue, not spiritual. This was big in the late '80's, early '90's. I had them until around 25 until I saw a guy in his mid 50s with them trying to act young. I did not want to be that guy, went home, took them out and haven't looked back since.
And Aaron said unto them, Break off the golden earrings, which are in the ears of your wives, of your sons, and of your daughters. . .
They need to stay out of their momma's jewelry box.
I absolutely abhor earrings in boys/men. It's their right to do so, but I still hate to see them. I especially hate to see them on boys <10 y/o!!
Momma, don't let your boys grow up to wear earrings.........
Yeah well......at least it ain't a pierced tongue....or other body part.
It does not need to be permanent so it is up to you and the children in question.
:tongue3:I only asked as my Husbund has sneeked all 3 of our sons out at one point and got them eatch one LOL, He came home with our 9 month old yesterday and there one was....And it was sliver lol, We go too a Baptist Church and I was not sure what they would think? Mind you I dont really look too see if other young boys there have one :laugh: But you guys are right its not perment and one day they might ditch it.
And as for staying out of Mommas jewerly box there not gonna get two far I only own 3 rings on my figers at all times and one pair of earrings on me at all times LOL
It is a fad of the times. I do not care for them and I realize it is because when I was a kid no male would have dared appear with an earring. Of course back then no women would have appeared with a nose ring.
You have to choose your battles. I made it very clear to my sons (when they were younger) that their bodies belonged to me until they turned 18. After that they could pierce, tattoo, dye, etc any part that they chose. (This was in the 80's, 90's). They each had an ear piercing and the youngest had hair longer than mine. It was cultural and did not harm them in any way that I could see.
I don't ask anymore what they have pierced....it's none of my business and I'm not sure I WANT to know anymore! LOL
Agree with the culture aspect. But there are some biblical admonitions as well.
One of my sons has none, the other has a tat and a gauge in his ears. Still my son and I love him. Stuff stuck on or in him doesn't change the fact of who he is.
LOL! That's funny.
For me? Not in my home. No boys with jewelry apart from my husband wearing a wedding band or special ring. No earrings, bracelets, or necklaces for any male in this home. Once grown, that's your choice. When in my home, nope.
I'm all for free expression and going with current styles, but that one just happens to be my pet peeve. Since ear piercing put a hole in part of your body, I also don't allow it for my girls until they are 18 and old enough to decide that one for themselves. I'm not against it. I have a few myself, but anything that has the potential to be permanent should be a choice they make on their own when they are old enough to factor in all the things there are to factor in when making such a decision.
Now for the other question: Did he give him a spike hairdo and a get him a tiny leather jacket to go with it? ROFL That would be funny...it does amuse me when people try out different looks with kids that young.
What do think about boys having earrings?
The same thing I think about Egyptians having earrings, women having short hair or Elvis having sideburns. Nothing, I don't judge by the flesh.
Growing up, guys having earrings was akin to murder in our church. One of our pastors even told a teenager not to come back to church unless he removed his earring, as it was a "distraction" to him while he preached.
Thankfully, like Diamondlady, I've come to realize that everything on earth does not need to turn into a battle. Wearing an earring or tattoo or spiked hair will not send someone to hell.
That said, I think they look stupid, ugly, and effeminate on boys. If I had a son, he would not be allowed to get one while living under my roof. Thankfully, I have daughters!
It is a reversion to and demonstration of the primitive custom of wearing one's wealth. It fits in with the reversion to the primitive music when drums were the primary musical instrument. "Everyone Loves Raymond," music," commercials, body decorations . . . a package deal
It is all cultural and who is to say that one culure is better than another culture. They just are and they change over time. The moment we start attributing evil to one's culture then we end up crossing a line in that we neglect to realize that they are all human beings and created by God.
Earing, tat, purple hair, whatever... Still have a heart inside that bleeds red and still have a soul that Jesus came to save.
Some American's obsession with the culture of post WWII is amazing to me. Who ever said that the MILITARY LOOK, clean shaven, short hair, button down shirt, pressed pants, suits for special occaisons and church, dresses on women, and a HOST of other issues even more pervasive than outward appearances is the ONLY RIGHT WAY?
Wait a minute...Your husband took your NINE MONTH OLD out and had his ear(s) pierced??? I have a rollin' pin you can borrow.
Forget the "sin" issue (there isn't one in my opinion), but is HE going to keep the thing clean?? Is he going to go sit with the baby at the doc's office when it gets infected? Or did he do such and then hand baby off to you to take off? Ear piercings are a pain to deal with in older children who WANT one. But somebody has to be totally responsible for a baby's ears and that isn't going to be me! I've dealt with an infected piercing and that was in a kid old enough to at least help take care of it. (later we figured out she's simply allergic to ANYTHING metal in that one ear, even gold) I have better things to do than take care of a baby piercing.
>It is all cultural and who is to say that one culure is better than another culture.
I am. And social anthropologists. Or is hippy culture equivalent to Baptist culture?
Im usally the one that takes care of anything like that haveing smaller fingers then him, I have had alot of earrings myself at one point but only wear one pair now that I am older so I am really good at takeing care of them.
I myself was less then impressed that he did it, not much I can do now, my other boys were over 3 when theres was done.
