Evans' photo picked up tons of traction and people were NOT happy.

"I hate my thighs." on a onesie intended for baby girls? SERIOUSLY? Yes, let's teach body hatred to infants.... http://t.co/bSKCRceUVY

If you've made anything like an "I hate my thighs" onesie for a baby, may I suggest the wintry freshness of confronting your self-loathing?

I will give you side eye for years if I see you put your baby in a onesie that says, "I hate my thighs"

Wry Baby, the company responsible for the onesie, specializes in making snarky baby onesies.

They were actually called out by Ms. Magazine over the baby wear last month.

"Yes, we know—it's meant to be funny. After all, the company that sells this onesie with the saying "I Hate My Thighs" is named Wry Baby. And we feminists do have a sense of humor. But really, there's something icky about projecting fat awareness on babies," wrote Ms. mag's Michele Kort.

In response, Wry Baby asked customers to vote for either "I hate my thighs" or another onesie that reads "Love me for my leg rolls."

"Love me for my leg rolls" won, and the company no longer sells the "I hate my thighs" onesie.

According to Wry Baby, proceeds from the sale of both onesies were donated to the Ms. Foundation for Women.
