Babytalk Mag Cover with Boob? Been there, done that

…seriously, that is soooooooooooooo last week.

For those of you who missed it, here’s what breastfeeding a 16-month old looks like.


So apparently a bunch of tightwads have their panties in a bunch because BabyTalk Magazine used this on their cover:

I hate to burst their bubbles, but…um…it’s a boob. We ALL have them. They are for FOOD. For kids. That whole sex part? Secondary. And stupid, I might add.

So to all you beyoootches that don’t like to see boob while it’s being used as it was intended: Turn your fucking heads and shut the fuck up.

Your puritanical, unnatural, suppressed sexually, self-conscience, repulsive, and oppressed opinions on the matter are unwarranted, unsolicited, and ignorant.

Would you also like me to wear an apron while I serve my husband dinner? Maybe get him his slippers when he gets home and walk ten paces behind him in public? Should I also not be allowed to drive? Vote? Control my own reproduction? Feed my child in PUBLIC???
If your 13-year-old wants to jerk off to a BabyTalk magazine cover, maybe you need to hide the National Geographic as well. And to those of you who find it “Gross” and “shocking”-maybe you need to get out of your “don’t make eye contact in elevators, shop at major mega stores, avoid the news” world a little more. Because I’ll be out there. Feeding my kids. With my tit.

And if you don’t like it, you can suck it.

***and I’m even more pissed because I had to see this story just an hour before leaving for BlogHer…you know, where they have daycare and a quiet room for breastfeeding and are PRO WOMAN. Not like the rest of the U.S. Where it’s ok to get all upset about breastfeeding in a public way.


  1. Ugh! I’m STILL heated. Your article link is better and when I read the woman who said “Gross, I am sick of seeing a baby attached to a boob.” I lost it again! GRRRRRR. She probably has ugly boobs. =)

  2. I read Dana’s blog and had the same reaction. I think that a number of the same words and phrases left my mouth when I was talking to my husband about this very article. And the thirteen year old, wow, you have to be pretty hard up to use that magazine cover when there are so many underwear ads out there. I am also sure that the 13 year olds mother has already written nasty letters to National geographic.

    It is another reason I am glad I live in Hippy dippy Vancouver. With all the organic shit people are willing to pay through the roof for, they don’t complain about people breast-feeding in public. (Well as long as you don’t want to do it in a mall.)

  3. Are you freaking kidding me? It’s a boob for crying out loud. It’s not a picture of a man sucking on it. It’s a baby. Get over it, prudes.

  4. I still haven’t picked up my jaw from the ground. It’s amazes me how people get their panties wound up over THIS? There are other issues far more important. *eye roll*

    Have fun at BlogHer!!! 😉

  5. Yikes, things are crazy down there. As much as I appreciate them, boobs are for babies. It’s just bizarre that you need them to survive for the first year or two or your life then you’re not allowed to see another one until you’re 18. And that whole thing in the article about men seeing just a breast whatever the context? Bullshit.

  6. Whenever I see a baby breastfeeding (in real life or in a picture), I think it just looks sweet.

  7. LMAO, I am sorry but between getting fired up from your blog then reading the article where the woman states that she doesn’t want her husband or her son to see a boob unless THEY want to?
    I have a husband who’s NEVER not looked at a boob if it’s there. I have a 15 year old testerone yielding upright penis walking around too. I would much rather have them see a boob being used for something natural and great as it was intended, then the usual cold nipple in the store or in Playboy.
    Flash and feed away! They hell with them and if they get mad because of what your doing, aim it their way!

  8. Only in Amerika. Sigh..

  9. How about this comment from the article:

    “Men are very visual,” says Wheatley, 40, of Amarillo, Texas. “When they see a woman’s breast, they see a breast â€â€? regardless of what it’s being used for.”

    Well, then those men need to fucking GROW UP and realize that breasts are not first and foremost their playthings…

  10. Hey Chic!

    Long time no lurking. I came back around just at the right time! It’s Boobalicious 2006 at the Queen’s pad! WHOO! HOOOO!

    You are so great. I wish we could hang out. We’d go to the mall, whip your boob out and flip off anyone that dared to look at you cross-eyed.

    Let’s have a virtual slumber party sometime.

  11. I got this magazine in the mail the other day myself, and thought nothing of it. I can’t believe the fuss being made over this picture of a breastfeeding baby on a magazine all about…*GASP*…BABIES!!

    It’s just ridiculous and pisses me off to no end. I am a Mommy to a 3 1/2 year old and a 15 month old…my husband and I are in the process of adopting them. You can bet that if they’d been born of MY womb, that I more than likely would have breastfed them, and I would do it in public to feed my child when she’s hungry, not when or where someone else thinks is appropriate.

  12. Violet the Verbose says:

    Oh please. Not only is that not shocking, it’s a beautiful boob! You should see mine – stretch marks, a red freckle on the left one… please. That’s like a boob model, I think. People should be appreciating its gorgeous shape and perfect skin. Ha ha! Then again, it could be airbrushed. Hmm.

  13. Ugh, I can’t even get invested in this. People can REALLY be idiots. Want another example? Check out the new man-hating troll on the BlogHer forums, “Dars Sistahood.” I accidentally fed this troll before I checked out the profile and recognized “it” for what it is.

  14. For the record, I’m totally pro-boob. Go boobies!

  15. Oh. My. God. I am coming out of lurkville and I am SO linking to your post – hope you don’t mind the extra attention. (I’m not a creepy lurker – I just usually read while I’m…ummm, BREASTFEEDING!!)

  16. All I have to say is WOW! Some people are so ignorant. If they have a problem with BREASTFEEDING in publie, they need to get some help and get over it!! It natural PEOPLE, you most likely did it too!


  17. AMEN!!!! You say it like I think it! THANK YOU!!! Want more pro-boobs? Get this months Vogue. Yep, a NON-mommag shows a nursing nipple.. and of a 14 month old nursling. YEAH!! GO, BOOBS! I linked Vogue here:
    PS this is my first time here & I am sssoooo coming back! You rock!

  18. Ahhhhhhh. So here is the boob of which you speak.

  19. I just stumbled across your blog, and my timing was perfect! I don`t have any children myself, but I am all for public breastfeeding! I live in northern Europe, and it`s not really a big deal here – yet! Let`s hope it stays that way! Keep flashing your boobs I say!!

  20. I’m one of the puritanical idiots WHO DO BREASTFEED IN PUBLIC, including in church, during the play, in the grocery store, library,book store wherever I happen to be. She’s twenty one months and the last of my boob fest, which took thirteen years to conclude. My… but we had fun. I would have worn a long skirt and no make up, but never put the boob up when the baby was a-hungered… that is what the boob is for, right??

  21. OMG! Right on, sistah! You ARE the Queen! …and my new idol.

  22. Well said. Good Job!

  23. Luogo interessante, buon disegno, lo gradisco, signore! =)

  24. Thank you. I see boobs with babies all the time while I am infact attacting my own infant and often having a well meaning discusion besides. Are we not of the animal kingdom?
