Is this fashion? Why is the picture so controversial?
Xue Hsueh, who is 26, put the baby in her tote bag while chatting with friends. One of her friends took the picture, and Xue liked it so much that she wanted to share it.
But bloggers weren’t amused, and the picture instead caused outrage.
Many compared it to women who like to carry their tiny dogs around in designer bags, Paris Hilton-style.
- “Designer babies, the latest accessory that every woman must have.”
- “I wonder what would happen if the straps break on her handbag?”
However, Xue defended herself, saying her baby was only in the handbag for a very short while.
And she said that she was actually making a joke about what a man would do, adding that her son looked happy and was enjoying himself, according to Liberty Times.
