Way To Go Salma Hayek

For the longest time, the notion that Breastfeeding is somehow a terrible, evil, sinful crime has pissed me off something serious.

Up until fairly recently in Occidental society, Breastfeeding was the norm and, in several countries, still is.

I’ve even seen it suggested that Breastfeeding women should go into public restrooms rather than having women feed their children out in the open. This is despite nothing showing beyond the back of the babies head and [maybe] a small amount of breast on the mothers part. It’s not like someone’s giving a lap dance people, geeze.

Perhaps the critics would like to pick their Supersized ‘Lard ass almighty’ meals, or whatever the hell they’re eating now, and go do the same. See how you like it. Hell, there’s even a fold down table in most places now. Be sure to take a wetwipe and babies needing a change have priority.

So to see Salma Hayek suckling a child not her own was an awesome sight as that used to be the normal thing to do for kids all over, including in our culture. I don’t know what’s happened to our society that caused such a social breakdown but it’s nice to know that someone, even if not intentionally, is fighting the good fight in the cause of Motherhood.

Especially when you consider that babies weren’t meant to drink Cow’s Milk or Formula. We’re humans, duh.

Especially considering some people in this world aren’t even willing to kick out a damn dollar for vaccine.

  1. You’ll be pleased to here that in Scotland there is a law guaranteeing the right to breastfeed in public spaces.

    “An Act of the Scottish Parliament to make it an offence to prevent or stop a person in charge of a child who is otherwise permitted to be in a public place or licensed premises from feeding milk to that child in that place or on those premises; to make provision in relation to the promotion of breastfeeding; and for connected purposes.”

    The Breastfeeding etc. (Scotland) Act 2005.

  2. I don’t know why that is. The UK used to be very uptight (and still is, in some ways). But over the past fifty years we seem to have relaxed a bit, where the US has sometimes seemed to move in the other direction or retain attitudes that we in Europe tend to regard as outmoded.

  3. Maybe we’ve traded people over the years. You got our 60s radicals and we got the Mary Whitehouse groupies through emigration. Please give a few back… We really need them. *sniffle*
