Angry Can you believe this?

http://www.msnbc.msn.com/id/14065706/

I'm not trying to start another BFing debate because that's not what this is even about. I just can't believe that other mamas would say things like this about BFing. Even if you don't want to BF there's still no excusing these comments....

(Oops, I meant to post this in off topic. How did I get here? LOL Any mod out there want to move it?)

Re: Can you believe this?

If a bottle can be a cover, so can a breast. They do the exact same job.

I understand some people might not be comfortable with it, but I'm not comfortable with all the oversexed covers on the same stands. I just don't stare at them and move on with my day. There are far worse things in life.

I first saw this on the Colbert Report. He was making fun of the people that were making those comments. I don't know, I guess I expected a few people to feel like that, but 1/4 of them?! You'd think with all the breastfeeding support lately that number wouldn't have been so high.

Re: Can you believe this?

I actually got this magazine in the mail a couple months back and my firs thought was that people were going to be mad. Stupid, but true. I even showed DH and he agreed with me. I am not a fan of the magazine, but kudos to them for putting that on their cover. I wish some people would get a grip... and get outraged at something that REALLY matters.

Re: Can you believe this?

It's really sad that in our culture ~ The most natural, beautiful, loving things in life are called "GROSS & Innapropriate"
I will never understand this ~ so it's not worth getting upset over ~ No one seems to get squimish to see pups nursing on their mama.
I didn't see that pic until this thread and the feeling I got when I did see it was ~ WOW! That's beautiful!!
It's too bad some women don't see the beauty in their own miraculous bodies!

As DH said, "Britney Spears showed more boob than that in her last video!" (He seemed almost more upset about it than me, lol) I do understand that the reason it probably created so much uproar is because the people its normally sent to aren't the ones watching britney spears or buying "maxim". They ordered the magazine because its wholesome and about babies. Then the magazine totally suprises them with "nudity" and what some apparently would even consider "****". The part I really don't get is that they ARE mothers. This is something they hopefully do on a daily basis. Even those who don't surely know how good it is for the child. How did their image of their own body become so warped that they can't see it for what it really is? I would venture to guess it was probably how they were brought up, and the sad part is that their children are probably being brought up that same way. Hopefully though, like a pp said, with enough exposure everyone will stop having such an aversion to the whole thing. People are just scared of things they don't know, so if you think about it, just by NIP mamas are helping to prevent stuff like this.
