The Case Against Breastfeeding?
I came across this today reading through Kimya Dawson’s blog and it shocked me. Entire video library dedicated to discrediting the moto "Breast is Best". Apprently this push for all mothers to breastfeed their babies is taking away our rights as women to be out of the house and have a career ect…, and is setting back feminist everywhere?
Waaa? I though this was the most empowering thing a women could do, make magic growth juice with your own breasts, isen’t that what they were made for? I understand and support when a women is unable to breastfeed due to medical reason or true low supply issues, I am not a burn at the stake kind of girl, but saying that there is no proof that the health benefits of breastfeeding outweigh that of formula feeding is just ludicrous, and saying that La leche legue is just another way to opress women and make them feel lousy about themselves is pretty damned far stretched no?
I guess that’s the beauty of free speech, people can be as moronic as they desire.
