Time Magazine Cover – “Are You Mom Enough?”
On the most recent cover of Time magazine, a woman is shown openly nursing her three year old boy. I’m not going to post the picture here since it’s immodest. But you can see it here if you’re curious.
First off, let me just say that I don’t care if a woman breastfeeds or bottle feeds her baby. Breastfeeding has plenty of benefits. But not every woman can do it. And what I really can’t comprehend is why the act of breastfeeding seems to turn some women into raging exhibitionists. I mean, it’s not like their babies are going to drop dead if they go in a private room, or use some kind of cover. It’s as if they’re seeing “Look at me! I’m holier than thou!” As I see it, this kind of attitude is typical among many of today’s women who seem to want special attention for doing something women have been doing for thousands of years. So what I have to say about all this is, if you want to breastfeed, go ahead. But just cover up, and stop getting in peoples faces! I don’t want to see your breasts.
And speaking of breasts, these militant internet nursers go on and on about how the breast is only for feeding babies, and that there’s nothing sexual about them, etc.
If there’s nothing sexual about the female breast, then why are they all over men’s porno magazines (among other private parts)? Is it just a “social construct” invented by patriarchal male societies to make men be attracted to the female breast? (Pardon the left wing jargon.)
Contrary to what feminists would have everyone believe, straight men are made that way. Men and women are *not* the same.
Anyway, Rush Limbaugh has his own improved version of the Time magazine cover which I don’t think goes far enough:
Actually, I think a more appropriate picture of Barack and Michelle Obama each sucking on one of Lady Liberty’s breasts.
