One more step in the continued pussification of our youth. Its no wonder that all of the little snowflakes are coming up with entitlement issues and a lack of survivability. These kids wouldn't have lasted a day in my neighborhood when I was a kid. These kids need to be told NO once in a while and have their asses slapped when they talk back. Time magazine is only giving these crappy parents validation for their ridiculous behavior.



What ridiculous behavior, exactly? Since the article is behind a pay wall at Time, i was unable to read it. So I was wondering if you could list some of the ridiculous behavior you are referring to as mentioned in this TIME article.

Erm, that would be a charming image if it was a real baby breast feeding but this child is way too old IMO, fine if the mother wants to continue the practice - that's her right but please don't force this on the public.
This will be staring at us from every grocery and pharmacy checkout.
Another non-issue for the plebes to argue about while the banking mafia goes on their merry way.
I guess we're supposed to just "suck it up" huh?
So who's the real boob here then?

I don't think breasts are pornographic in any way myself but I don't set public standards of decency.
National Geo has been getting away with it for years.

Nat Geo getting away with it for years? Your implying that the public standards of decency are being violated by Nat Geo?
Could you please provide a Nat Geo photo of a 3 year old suckling his mother?
And your OK with this? This practice of public breastfeeding? What's next on the slippery slope. It's OK for other perverts to publicly masturbate? After all, it's their right?!!
Really?

Where is your morale compass?

That's disgusting that kid is far too old to be sucking on the ninny, and I thought they took babies from crackheads.

This is sexual abuse and is deplorable...foul...awful taste

so, what's the Internationally Recognized Cut-Off date for breastfeeding? One year old? two? seventeen months and three days?

just because it looks a little strange (which i'll readily admit), it gives everyone the excuse to pile on and talk about what a terrible mother she is?

if you think that image is sexual, then you yourself must be repressing pedophile-like urges. humans are designed to breastfeed. boobs are not sexual in nature. the only reason we men are attracted to them is because they remind us of how nice and comfy and special we felt when we were sucking on our own mother's titties.

grow up, guys.

Damn! Wish she was my mom


Joking aside, mothers can raise their kids how they want, personally to me, that image is slightly freaky but generally mothers have the finally say on their own kids.

TONS of doctors and pediatricians disagree with you.

Periodic breastfeeding through the age of three is still VERY beneficial for the child's digestive and immune system

Not child abuse, the opposite. If you want to do it. I don't care. Whip out those breasts in public, I may get used to it someday. I can tell you that people I have known, hippies, that breastfed after they could walk, they all turned out socially awkward. I met one guy who breastfed until he was 8. He was a giant named Tiny.

So?

There are actually many mothers that nurse their children up to school age.

And it harms what exactly?

OMG! That's terrible! That's disgusting! There ought to be a law. . . wait, what?

If I wanted government to encroach more into personal lives and say, make a law against hitting someone in the face with a rainbow trout. . . .

The first thing I'd do, would be to hit someone in the face with a rainbow trout!

ok, so where does the sexual abuse come in?? can't you say "she doesn't know any better!" rather than "OMG time magazine is publishing kiddie porn!!"

also, sure he may not NEED the breast milk. but it would have to be harming the child to qualify as "truly foul." in your "experience" as a "nurse" and "emt" does breast milk become poisonous to a child after a certain number of days or months? does it make kids sick?

if YOU have sexualized this image in YOUR mind, that's YOUR problem. if the child thinks he's eating, and the mother thinks she's feeding, then where does the sexuality come in?

that is so disgusting and disturbing to me that so many people have linked breastfeeding and sex together in their minds. ew.

I'd say - - with such a strong reaction to this.

You are the one who has a problem.

Simple rule...

If they can ask for it, ask for seconds, or fish it out themselves... = too old to be breast feeding...

Just a tip from your Uncle Gaz...

I would say the child needs a father, and the mother needs a man in her life, and after putting that picture out she probably going to attract some right wierdos, what is she teaching that child.

The ridiculous behavior of these parents that will Not allow their children to grow up. If you are breast feeding a child that is 3 plus years of age you are failing as a parent. Get your tit out of their mouth and grow them up so they can be functional adults. Tell your kids no sometimes. Make them behave and teach them manners. Teach them how to survive and how to be self sufficient. THAT is your job as a parent!

Anyone who thinks an image of a woman breastfeeding is 'inappropriate' likely needs a lot of safety gear when they leave the house. It is one of the most natural, normal things around.

. It shows a boy, clearly too old to be breastfeeding, sucking on the breast of a woman, who is presumably the boys mother.


'presumably'? One does not need to 'presume', sir. The article states she is his mother.

"Presume-Suppose that something is the case on the basis of probability" Breastfeed.

Also, 3 is not too old to breastfeed. It's not common, but it's also not unheard of. Many mothers begin weening in the twos, but still allow the child to breastfeed, on occasion into their 3s. Since the Time article is behind a pay wall, we really cant know the context of when and how she breastfeeds.


To me, this seem like child abuse and is clearly inappropriate. The mother, photographer and publisher should be held accountable, but I'm sure they won't be.


Child abuse? Seriously? Would it be puppy abuse to take a picture of a puppy breastfeeding from its mother?

I think feeding a kid soy-based formula is probably closer to child abuse than giving them the milk their mother supplies just for them.

Does femininity frighten you? Were you perhaps not breastfed? Sometimes gay men are scared of boobs. Have you looked into that?

yeah... right...dog breeding is a "natural and normal" act...but i don't want to see 2 dogs in the actual act, going at it on the front page of Time.

So, you think a woman breastfeeding is comparable to copulation?

I think maybe you have a fetish.

Those doctors or so called doctors aren't the end all be all when it comes to anything. You do not get any benefits from it except a catered to spoiled little itch. Because someone never taught them the word no. I don't trust doctors anyway. I had the best peditricians in the world and they never promoted this. But there are less and less good doctors now, sadly. I mean just as other people have mentioned do you see Native American continuing breastfeeding that long? Do you think they did that in the stone age when the little guy was actually expected to be a little more self sufficient because of survival issues back then? This is what is the down fall of humanity. Kittens only get 6 weeks ok given they have a shorter life span but in relation to their lifetime 10-16 years that is a very small percentage of that lifetime. Then they are expected to be fully self reliant... we are still supposed to be self reliant these kids haven't got a chance, one punch in the nose they probably cry like banshees. I should've guessed the woman came out of LA the pussy breeding grounds that kid will live in San Francisco no doubt.

I have to ask an odd question...how much milk is that kid getting?

I'm not trying to be crude...but I know from experience that when my wife was breastfeeding...well...the milk has to be stored somewhere.

In that picture...the women doesn't look like she is holding much milk.

I just kind of find that odd...but then again...maybe it is just my limitied experience of witnessing breast feeding.
