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.

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.

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.

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.

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.

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.

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

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.
