On the occasion of Mother’s Day, Aishwarya Rai Bachchan shared an adorable picture on Instagram in which the doting mother was seen kissing her daughter Aaradhya Bachchan on her lips. The actress captioned the picture as: “LOVE YOUUNCONDITIONALLY Happiest Mama in the World”
It melted hearts of her fans and well-wishers, who loved the bond between a mother-daughter duo. But trolls decided to attack diva over the photo.
Here’s what outraged the trolls and why they are wrong:
Trolls say kissing daughter on lips is weird
Kissing is quite a normal thing for a parent to do. Lot of Indian parents affectionately kiss their kids on lips.
When children go through positive physical experiences with a parent early in their, it sets them up to be comfortable giving and receiving physical affection later in life.
Trolls question Aishwarya’s sexual orientation and accuse her of sexually abusing a girl
Sexualizing a sweet and innocent peck between a mother and daughter is wrong. Instead of seeing them as babies, toddlers, and little girls; sleazy trolls only see them as soon-to-be sexual beings.
Mothers share a lot of physical intimacy with kids ie: bathing, hugging, laying with them in their bed, cuddling, caressing etc. Why is a bath or a cuddle okay and a kiss is not? If a kiss feels stimulating, so should tickling, back rubbing, caressing, head scratching, and everything else physical, including breastfeeding. It is silly to see regular daily acts of physical affection and intimacy through a sexual lens.
If your perversion stops you from seeing love between a mother and her child and all that you can think about is ‘sexual orientation’, then you need to get well soon.
As an aside, in any case, a person is free to have any sexual orientation as long as it is a matter between consenting adults. It is ridiculous to bring this up in what’s an innocent picture of a mother and daughter.
Perhaps trolls should save their outrage for when minor girls get raped and molested or when boys get sodomized.
Trolls say Aishwarya is aping western culture and faking it for paparazzi
What has ‘western’ or ‘Indian’ got to do with a mother expressing her love for a daughter. Is motherhood a western concept? Are there different protocols for Indian mothers compared to their western counterparts?
Why should being a celebrity subject one to such a scrutiny where she has to think about every little thing she does. In fact, if Aishwarya actually pays heed to such trolls and acts as per their definition of an Indian mother, then that would be fake and pretentious.
Stop contradicting yourself trolls and just let her be.
