Ick


I cannot begin to describe how disgusting I think this cover of Time magazine is.  As I have read in many iterations of comments about the story, I believe that this exact photo, if viewed in a different context, would be considered child pornography. 

I am not about to link to the piece of shit story and this moonbat's justification that her four and five-year old children still get to latch on to the twins at their discretion.  I know nothing, nor care nothing, about whatever the hell 'attachment parenting' is.  I do have an issue with the provocative title that insinuates that I may be less of a mother because my kids only see my bare chest by accident at this point in my life. 

I love my children.  They know I love them.  I provide for them, set boundaries for them, discipline them, laugh with them and cry with them.  They do not need my boob in their mouth to know that I care for them deeply.

This woman, Jamie Lynne Grumet, has an adopted 5-year old son that hits her up once a month or so for a mouthful.  Yes, I am serious, it is in the 'backstory' feature that ran with the article online. 

If a kid is walking, talking, dressing himself, tying his own shoes and doing without the funbag for 30 days at a stretch, WTF are you thinking, letting him at it when the mood strikes? 

The kid in the picture is her turning-4-years-old next month biological son.  Someday he will want to ask a pretty girl to prom.  Either he will be haunted by this photo, or late for the date while he sucks down a few pre-dance mouthfuls of mommy milk.  Gag.

And don't give me the nutrition argument.  My beef is with the method of deployment.  If she wanted to pump her breast milk and feed it to her kids until the cows come home (I think there is a pun in there), I would think it gross and over the top, but not criminal and mentally crippling like this cover is going to be for that kid.

The only thing I can commend Grumet on is her acknowledgement that she can't reason with people like me.  People offended, disgusted and convinced that this has little to do with a parenting style and everything to do with some holier-than-thou breastfeeding activism.

I used to know a couple who had a three or four year old that was still taking the teat. The odd thing was that every time I went over there out came the boob and the kid drank in front of every one. One time we were out at the complex pool and she just dropped the top off of her suit so the kid could have at it. I guess she need to tan the one that was not being used. It finally became apparent that these folks weren't quite normal and I stopped going over there.

I honestly think I could have asked for a drink myself in front of her husband and I would be allowed. Very wierd and I wonder if something like that is not going on here.

re: the kid "that hits her up once a month or so for a mouthful"

When I was in high school I would have killed for a mouthful once a month or so.

I personally think this is a disgusting picture for disgusting behavior, but what the hell do I know? I've never had a kid.
