He'll just have to make the breast of a bad situation.

It's the most natural food you can feed an infant.

I don't see the problem.

But sher whatever. Pass the kid a rusk or whatever other processed shoite they're trying to pass off as healthy these days in case a few ne'erdowells get offended.

Off-topic but ironically women in Saudi Arabia openly breastfeed despite often being fully veiled.

That's a pretty piss poor attempt at a copy and paste

Also the Time cover is there to provoke a reaction. If it was a 3 yo that actually looked like a 3 year old there'd be no such reaction to it. Instead they made sure to get a much older looking kid, and stand him on a chair in order to reach sustenance! I doubt that's how she breastfeeds the kid at home.

It's a load of bollix really.

And I'd definitely suck on her tits.. what's weird about that?!

Hunter-gatherers breastfeed their kids for minimum of 2 years and up to 5 years. This was likely the case for most of human evolution.

People who think that's weird have a problem.

It's only very recently where the done thing is breastfeed for 6 months then shove the child in a creche. Now that's weird.

Some of the reaction to this on Twitter is hilarious. People calling it sick & twisted without realising that they themselves are the ones sexualising what is a completely non-sexual relationship between a mother and her child.

If Freud were alive today he'd be sucking his own tit with excitement.

Because it contains the precise nutrients a growing child needs to remain as healthy as possible?
I wouldn't expect anybody to do this, definitely not once teeth start mangling things (gums're bad enough), but this histrionic crowd-sourced disgust is so, so repulsively Victorian (not aimed at you, laoch).

I was looking at it from a biological view point
mammals wean their young once they can eat we are mammals
