With fall in full swing, moms are searching for ways to celebrate the season with their little ones. Which is why the #pumpkinbutt tag on Instagram has been filling up daily with baby butts covered in artistic renditions of orange pumpkins. The photos are cute at first glance, but some parents are calling the trend dangerous. And one blogger writes: worse yet is posting these humiliating photos on the Internet for everyone and their brother to copy, paste and pin to Pinterest where the copy-paste-post cycle will repeat for all of eternity. Soon enough, Pumpkin Butt will grow into a child with emotions who’s capable of independent thought and will more than likely resent the hell out of the artist.
