Breastfeeding is Hard, So Just Give Up! Says the TimesPosted: July 24, 2012
Since this piece made me too angry to see straight, I’m going to do away with a well-thought-out and eloquently put rebuttal to it, and just say exactly what I think.
Yes, exactly! Breastfeeding is hard, and our society isn’t designed to accommodate the needs of our children! So by all means, let’s all just give up and give them all a synthetic chemical formula instead, because probably breastmilk isn’t THAT great. Let’s not all stand up and fucking DEMAND that our society conform to the fucking NEEDS of our CHILDREN. Let’s just make sure that all those moms get right back to work so those businesses can keep on churning out their widgets, because that is what is truly important in our wonderful country!
