It's an attention grabbing cover yes, but that's about it, so the cover is doing it's job.

What i don't see though is what the problem should be here?

Where i'm from, i'm not surprised at all when i see someone breastfeeding her kid in public, and why would i be? A cover like this would hardly get any extra attention.

We have the infant formula companies partly to blame for this culture against breast feeding, where people who see a breast feeding baby or in this case toddler and start thinking gross or incest or sexually inappropriate... it's truely awful that we as human's allowed this to happen.


I don't think most people have ANY problem with a woman breast feeding in public. The issue in THIS story, is more about the appropriate age to STOP doing it. I think the majority of folks agree that after 2yrs old, a child is too old to breast feed. Socially, if the kid can ask for it, or fish it out themselves and have at it...the kid's too old to be doing it...and anybody doing so, is going to get the funny looks from the public. Simple as that.

No amount of boo-hooing or whiny "I'm being a better parent because of it" BS is going to change the mass opinion on this.

There is nothing motherly or natural about the posture and mannerisms of the woman and child in that photo. I have no issue with breasts, as I have my own, or breastfeeding. But that is not the way mothers breastfeed or bond with their child. There is nothing warm or nurturing about that photo. I am NOT offended by the other photos in the magazine.

edit on 11-5-2012 by MaryStillToe because: (no reason given)


I am positive i've read your previous comment correctly, stating 2 and 3 year olds are not supposed to breastfeed and a mother being a pervert for doing so. You did not comment that picture or posture, I have though, I wrote it is not a realistic representation. That photo is made to provoke and make people talk about it.

However, calling that mother a pervert you have also called me a pervert and every other mother who breastfed longer than 2 years. The thing is, we are not, it's people that see sexual connotations in breastfeeding that are perverts themselves.


No, you did not read my previous post correctly. You selectively quoted my post and did not grasp that a "period" denotes a new sentence. I did not call ALL women who breasfeed children over 2 or 3 perverts. I said that women do not HAVE TO let their children breastfeed in order to feed them breast milk. This was in response to people who were claiming that it was strictly being done for health reasons. My friend wouldn't even breastfeed her infant because it was too painful, so she used a pump.

I also pointed out from the beginning that I specifically thought THAT picture was disgusting and indecent. I then added at the end of the first post that I thought "THIS WOMAN" was a pervert. I didn't say these women, it wasn't plural.

She (Jamie Lynne) agreed to do the photo so I fully stand by my statement that she is a pervert. The photo is suggestive and has a sexualized feel to it. A breastfeeding boy would not be approaching eye level with his mom, like a man. Also, children usually breastfeed while their moms are sitting and they lift their top, they don't pull one strap off the shoulder in an adult like manner.

I hope you are no longer confused.

I don't think breastfeeding is the issue. It's the disgusting cover. Would you think it's normal to watch a five year old jump up on a park bench, slide his mom's shirt and bra strap down, and begin feeding himself?

I think most agree that would be inappropriate.

I am sorry to disappoint you but only in America. 2 years old is not too old to breastfeed where i live. That's your opinion only so stop making it a 'social issue'. I can't change your mind about it and i won't even try but the truth is in other countries this cover is nothing special, especially compared to Rihanna's wide-open punani or Cln. Khaddafi being sodomized on magazine covers. God bless the U S of A - land of the free

Why... should that mother - or anyone for that matter - give a flying -snip- what other people THINK about her nursing choices?

They shouldn't! And honestly - the opinions expressed here should not matter. The "Public Opinion" should not matter either. The "General Agreement on what is wrong" should not matter. It is all BS.

Why do you people feel obligated to care?

Is this hurting you in some way? Can you honestly tell me that this mother's choice, or any mother's choice to do this is hurting you in any way?

Because if you try you are LYING. You are just arrogant beasts who would much rather see your beliefs forced on the public en masse then have to deal with the differences that society and racism have to offer. After seeing the polarity something as natural as this ensues, no wonder we have abortion, gay marriage, and racism exploding our country apart - because people can't help but to pick at the bones of anyone who make another choice then what they believe is the right one.

It's been my opinion for decades that the so-called 'news magazines' (TIME, NEWSWEEK, U.S. NEWS & WORLD REPORT, etc. Also fluff like PARADE) have been controlled by intelligence agencies. That being the case (IMO), then this cover was meant as just another psy-op in whatever campaign they are using on the public to demoralize or degrade the populace.

My advice is --- don't believe anything printed in those mags. It's all psy-op designed to illicit some kind of mass reaction on not only a conscious, but also a subconscious level. Yes, they know that millions of people will see this in the grocery checkout lanes. That's the point.

It's a form of socialistic symbolism that TPTB are trying to slam down our throats and it's giving us a glimpse of things to come.
The young mom represents the government, or dare I say, Obama himself, and the child represents the American citizens suckling on that ever expanding government breast.




Now I really have read it all on ATS. Thank you. That we have managed to drag religion and politics into this debate is..well, it's ATS isn't it?

Statistically 5 percent or more of parents in America continue breastfeeding their child after 3 years old.

Globally that number is higher.

Breasts are the source of nourishment primarily. The sexual aspect is secondary. In fact for some women there is no sexual aspect at all.

Plenty of other things to get bothered about in the world. Let a mother feed her child how she wishes. Do you think before we had all of this marketing towards children for "graduates" and other "baby food" people were so convinced that they had to get their child to give up the breast?

I support breastfeeding as long as the mother wants. Who the hell am I (or you) to determine what is appropriate in a situation like that?

It should be reiterated that not all women receive a sexual response from having their breasts touched. I think the percentage drops considerably when it is their own son/daughter doing it.

Chill the hell out.

No question about it, in American Society the female breasts are sexual.

Yes yes and yes from a logical view point they are mammary glands with the purpose of nurturing our newborns and small children.

Again, once a kid gets teeth, that is nature's way of saying, okay it's time to ween the little sucker (pun intended).

In order to get the common, ordinary, "good" person perverted, it is done in stages.

Shock value tends to make a human pull back but if you pervert that which is sacred, in little stages, by slow progression, eventually you can get most people to accept perverted ideas.

People so arrogantly believe, like this kid standing on a stool - look into his eyes and that of the model...........simply look into their eyes.

Defiant, no love, no nurturing - is the kid even really this model's child????

One man commented, "Lucky kid" so my first sentence is dead on.........most American men, hell most men that I've met and I have big jugs, have a real sexual thing, get very excited just at the thought of female breast.

Sorry folks, this was done for two reasons. First to make lots of money but secondly and more importantly to drag you all that agree this is a-okay, down a little further into the abyss humanity is sliding into.

Have a nice day and enjoy the ride, you are going to see a lot more in the years to come.

It's going to get even more perverted with our children.

Watch the movie, Legend with Tom Cruise and Mia Sara. I personally don't like Tom Cruise but this was Tim Curry's movie.





To me this is the pivotal point where Lilly (all of us must choose to embrace the light or darkness.

Description of videos: From the movie Legend.


Published on Mar 18, 2012 by Michael Delving

This is a re-imagined version of the "waltzing dress" scene from the 1985 film "Legend". Two versions of the film have been edited together here. Due to studio concerns about the profitability of the movie, different versions of the film were released in various countries, and the changes that were made are significant. Ridley Scott's Director's Cut (2002) uses the Jerry Goldsmith score that was released in Europe. However, the dancing dress scene works much better with the Tangerine Dream score that was released in the United States in 1985. The European version is much longer, but the US release's Tangerine Dream score is superior, particularly in the Dress Scene. Since 2002, I've hoped that a version of "Legend" featuring the long version of the film but using the Tangerine Dream score would be released, but it has never happened. So this is what this scene might look and sound like, mixing the look of one version with the sound of another. Goldsmith's score for this scene is much longer than Tangerine Dream's, so I had to edit both the audio and the video for length. Sorry for the crude edits. I had to snip out seven seconds of film and even then I had to extend the Tangerine Dream score significantly. Even this amazing scene, sadly, wasn't left intact in the US edit


The nature of evil and yes there is real evil, is intelligent by design, it tantalizes you, slowly,almost unnoticeable and then, like cancer quietly takes over you inch by inch.

Degradation of what is most sacred.

Taking motherly love, no more of a sacred bond than that between a mother and child. 30 years have passed since my last midnight feeding...........rocking my youngest and last child within my arms, him suckling and me then putting on Andy William's "Moon River" and dancing with him till he fell asleep within my arms.

That picture is not normal, not sacred, it's filth - look into the boy's eyes.

If you do not see it, a knowing - than you are blind, dumb and lost.

Breast feeding has nothing do to with sex....

This is not child porn and it is not sexual abuse.

It is a mom feeding her child. Is it sexual abuse when a mom feeds a baby? No? It's not sexual abuse when she feeds her 3 year old either.

Many doctors and pediatricians agree that it is beneficial to breastfeed your child up until age 3-4 years old.

It bothers me that here in the US we try to sexualize something as innocent as feeding your child. Breasts are NOT sexual organs. Just because us guys like to play with them during sex does not mean they are sexual organs. They are their for one reason and one reason only. Feeding your child....

If you feel it is sexual abuse to breast feed,well, then I am glad you are a FORMER nurse and EMT....

You sexualized it in your mind. Your mind turned an image of a mother breast feeding, into something sexual....

Maybe it's time you rethink things....Because if you are seeing an image of a mother breastfeeding and your mind goes straight to sex....I mean really...Maybe it is time for you to rethink things.....

Breast feeding a baby.

Not a little boy and that kid on the stool is a little boy.

I've raised three.

Again, look into his eyes.

The kid is over half her height and she is a model.

Again the question, is that really even his mom?

You are being conditioned to accept perversion and not even aware of it.

I feel the Photo is crappy tasteless and was contrived to provoke shock
Seems it worked
Though I could take a photo or paint a Mother breastfeeding her Child and convey a sacred and even spiritual image
Let Mothers decide what is best for their child - It has nothing to do with any other and is non of their business

What disturbs me most are the words: "Are You Mom Enough". Bye, bye "men"! It was nice knowing you. This is just another way to make men seem less important. You know what's funny........how they TWIST the art of mothering. The world isn't sick....just the people that live in it. Back in the day, it was an honor to be a mother/wife. Now-a-days, women don't NEEEEEEEED a man. Until they need their flat fixed!

I liked the Time cover. The mother is very attractive. Embedding her with my own post was on my mind but I see that someone else beat me to it. I've actually witnessed the "three year old breast feeding" phenomenon myself, although the child in question was probably four at the time.

There used to be a very funny clip on YouTube called "Meeting the Parents" where a guy brings his fiance to meet his parents and where the fiance discovers how close her husband to be really is to his mother. The word "num nums" is all I can remember about what was said, no matter how hard I try to forget it.

It is very important to bond with num nums . . . I mean mother.

Some time back, there was a kerfuffle over the boobs of the statues in the department of justice needing to be covered - all of the sudden. This was symbolic, it had huge meaning to those who cared - columbia and end of hope or something I cannot remember.

This image is not about breastfeeding, it was an excuse to get the image of the one boob showing through and acceptable non-porn cover. While I am not an expert on symbolism of this sort, my sense is this is a huge point being shown.
