That is very shocking that it is a big deal - no matter what "side" you are on. Cosmo (and Maxim, Seventeen, and almost all the other mags) can print whatever they want as long as it doesn't show the nipple - and those are sexual pictures! BFing isn't sexual at all - why do the rules become more strict?!

Re: Can you believe this?

I dont get it at all. Bfing is the most natural thing in the world! Breasts are for feeding babies not for sex like some people like to think. It drives me crazy to see people react to a beautiful thing like bfing in such a negative way, how is a mama feeding her baby ****? Argh breastfeeding is the best thing I have ever done. I cant understand how people can think so badly of it.

Re: Can you believe this?

This was RIDICULOUS! I've seen more boob on the cover of fashion mags and men's mags. Heck at least this fab BFing mama didn't have a "come hither" look on while sucking her finger or something! You see those mags and think some of those gals should have a cartoon word blurb that says "If you move this 1 inch square piece of fabric covering my huge implant you know what you'll see?"

I think the mama in that photo should get a major kudos for the pic and for nursing that babe!

I agree there are many, many reasons people FF and that is 100% OK w/me but come on don't bash the BFers! We're all mamas and we all do what's best but you know that lady talking about her teenage son doesn't know he has a Playboy under his mattress. And to anyone who's worried about their hubby would you rather that or the SI swimsuit edition? seriously now folks! I HATE **** but think naked (tasteful) preggo and nursing pics are just the sweetest things ever! I don't know if I'd put my boob on a mag cover now but I know I would if I they didn't have so many stretch marks!

Nursing is simply a beautiful act of caring regardless of where it's done!

How would you feel if you were banned to eating in your car or other private only places?

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!

What's worse is that the most recent edition has all the negative comments in it.

I was a little taken aback initially by the cover, honestly. But not outraged. Kudos to them for trying to make a statement!
