I'm concerned it might be. At the least someone needs to be smacked with a clue stick for leaving that comment up. Just... ick...I can't figure out if the poster just makes really poor decisions about what he shares online, or if there is something far more unsavory going on.
I think something that's getting lost in the conversation here is that predators can/will sexualize anything that involves children. A kid riding a bicycle? Yes. A Gap commercial for Christmas wear? Yes. The simplest, most mundane situations can trigger sexual fantasies for people with pedophilia.Oh gross What parent would even allow their daughter to post videos of themself dancing? Isn't it obvious that they'd be making their kid a target for every sexual predator out there with internet access? Grown women have enough problems with it as it is.
That's sick. Children can't even dance, have fun, and be kids without some pervert ruining it. Certain things shouldn't be posted online, but some people like to share videos with family and friends, and shouldn't have to worry about people like that.I went on his page to flag him and found that he made several disgusting comments on other videos of children dancing, and it wasn't just bellydance.
I'm not condoning sickos and pervs for a minute, but the internet is a reflection of the real world and we can't expect it to be all fluffy and nice because we want to to show our friends and family our video clips. Post something somewhere accessible like YouTube and you aren't just showing it to your friends and family, you are sharing it with any perv, sicko, idiot, bigot, troll, troublemaker, or nosey so&so who wants to look at it. And they will have opinions which they may want to tell you about.That's sick. Children can't even dance, have fun, and be kids without some pervert ruining it.

Hence why is doesn't matter if you post pics or videos of your kids online. In fact, your kid is safer with a pic online, then actually going outside. You can't protect your kid from everything, and everyone. Does that mean you can't let your kid out of his/her room until they're adults? You also mentioned facebook which is actually a safe place to share videos and pics with just friends, and family since only the people you add can see them. I'd rather post a video on facebook than youtube any day.the internet is a reflection of the real world
