What an IDIOT!! not sure how I missed all this . I actually don’ mind the guy, Though I also prefer Jon Stewart.He was commenting on the recent Applebee’s Nursing In.
Here is just one of the dumber comments he made:
” The need to breastfeed in public and not cover up was essentially just women being too lazy to plan ahead. “
Then he went on to say that this was a case of showing off, that moms just want the oohs and Haas of other people because they made a baby–“something a dog can do.”
Oh brother… and people wonder why there is even a NEED for lactivism.
What is disturbing is that I here this kind of so-called humour from other comics- admitedly from other hacks like Joan Rivers.When did it become funny to poke fun at breastfeeding moms? Do we hate women this much? Do we hate children this much?
My son was diagnosed with asthma and cat allergy last month. It wasn;t picked up because my own allergy to cats gave him ant-bodies. He need to be hospitalized the WEEK after he was weaned. I was able to protect him for 4 years.
Who knows what would have happened if I habdt struggled to pump milk and have him fed by tube in NICU. He was premature. He also nursed for almost 4 years. Ew gross? Gross would be my son on nebulizers, steroids and maybe DEAD because he couldn’t breathe. My breast milk in all senses of the word kept him alive.
I can’t go on about this- I am too angry, I will have to finish this post tomorrow.
I am a confident, swimming upstream kind of women who laughs at adversity and the first to stand up to a crowd and can take the heat.
What chance does a new mom struggling with a mother-in-law or mastatitis or postpartum a shitty doctor or unsupportive partner have when she faces humiliation and disdain by jerks like this?
