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.

Chyah! My mom gets Cosmo and I read it sometimes (I don't have anything against the mag itself) but they've put girls on their covers in TEENY swimsuits where you can almost see their girly parts, if ya know what I mean.

I didn't know it was on the Colbert Report though! I usually watch that show, I guess I missed that one.

Amy - Where'd you get that cartoon? I want to put it on my Myspace.

I know! Someone posted some of the comments on another forum and the one about **** was one of them. That one just made me sick.
