Babies or Cats?


If you didn't immediately click on my link, let me tell you what would have happened if you were to have done so. You would have been swept away to a site called The concept is that you can download something that will turn all the pictures of babies in your Facebook feed and elsewhere into pictures of things you prefer such as cats!! I'm not opposed to baby pics but I do REALLY love cats so they kind of drew me in there. (To be very explicit, though, I did not download this. I don't mind seeing pics of everyone's kids. But I am a tiny bit tempted to see what it would be like to have pictures of Persians pop up every time there was a kid pic. Just to see!)
Here is an article that expounds upon this idea and some reactions to it even further. What do YOU think? Is this wildly offensive? Mildly rude? Necessary or unneeded? How would you feel if someone downloaded something to avoid pics of your kids so they could instead choose to see something like bacon or a car or a certain breed of dog? If you downloaded this, would you let anyone know?


  1. I think it's pretty funny, but at the same time I don't think I'd be thrilled that it would make pictures of my kids look like animals! Although they do act like animals sometimes...

  2. I think it's funny. If I could, I would change all of the stupid "pins" on pinterest of women's abs talking about weightloss programs to pictures of marshmallow fluff.

  3. The concept is funny, but if someone actually felt the need to do this, I'd encourage them to just unfriend me instead.

  4. I'm sorry, but I think it's a GREAT idea! I would have NO problem at all if people wanted to change all the pictures I post of my dog to babies, that is their prerogative!
