I posted my disgusted about the objectifying of motherhood on FaceBook and got these responses:
Maureen Wittmann Umm, I’m all for breastfeeding. I never had a problem with public breastfeeding or nursing a 3 1/2 year old, but this picture is not a natural pose at all. It’s just creepy and, yes, tacky.
Nancy Brandt I did extended breastfeeding and NOT ONCE was I in that position. Why does the media and society have to turn God’s gifts into abnormalities? My husband and I teach Natural Family Planning to mostly engaged couples and we always encourage breastfeeding as a natural, healthy type of baby care. We try to let them see that there’s nothing “weird” about it.
