Another example of why I think plague and pestilence can’t be far behind. A recent cover of BabyTalk magazine featured an image of a baby breastfeeding. As you can see from the photo, this is clearly “offensive” and “disgusting.” Well, at least that’s what about 25% of the readers who responded to the poll thought. In my opinion, their responses were, for the most part, offensive and disgusting. Here’s a sampling:
“I was offended and it made my husband very uncomfortable when I left the magazine on the coffee table.”
“Gross, I am sick of seeing a baby attached to a boob.”
“I had to rip off the cover since I didn’t want it laying around the house.”
[Comment: Am I the only one who wants to smack these people?]
Lisa Moran, executive editor of the magazine, appears to be the only person making any sense on the issue. Moran said, “You see celebrities practically baring their breasts all the time and no one seems to mind in this sort of sexual context. But in this very natural context of feeding your child, a lot of Americans are very uncomfortable with it.”
That buzzing sound you hear? Probably locusts.
