Day twenty-three of 30 posts in 30 days
My celebrity crush was recently massively crucified for tweeting this:
“EWW Im at lunch,the woman at the table next 2 me is breast-feeding her baby with no coverup then puts baby on the table and changes her diaper [sic],”
After a hurricane of backlash she tweeted this:
“My sister breast feeds! Its a natural beautiful thing, there’s nothing wrong w it, but she covers herself, not w her boobs exposed” [sic]
I’ve never fooled myself into thinking that Kim Kardashian’s smarts matched her extraordinary beauty… if she had known any better she’d know that “lactavists” aren’t to be effed with.
I do know what she was trying to say in her original tweet. Both my sisters breastfed their 15 kids (between them), my wife breastfed DLG and I breastfed until I was seven years old… the list goes on. I know how important breastfeeding is and I support it 150%. While I know how important it is I also thing there’s a tactful way of doing it. Just because it’s a womans right to breastfeed in public doesn’t mean that they should just fling their boobs all over the place and not receive some sort of backlash from it.
Video’s kind of blurry… but it is humorous.
Don’t think for one second I don’t advocate breastfeeding and breastfeeding IN PUBLIC… because I absolutely do. I just don’t see why mothers of kids wouldn’t want to cover themselves up in public? But that’s just me… and Kim Kardashian apparently.
What’s your take?
BTW… I didn’t breastfeed until I was seven… I was trying to see if you were paying attention.
Who will reap the benefits of me passing along their blog information to all my (6) readers?
Juggling Eric is a good read. Here’s a guy who’s a dad to FIVE kids and still finds time to blog on a fairly consistent basis. I also enjoy a recent post he did about superhero attack strategies… pretty funny stuff.

ALSO… I’ve got first post up at HOT DADS of which I’m a contributing writer now! How cool is that!?
