Warning- Offensive Images

This post may contain images that disturb you. It may contain images that make you uncomfortable. It may contain images that you find profane.

If so, too darn bad.

Images known as Our Lady of La Leche

The reason that I post these images is because of this story. A woman was kicked out of Victoria Secret's because she wanted to nurse her baby in the dressing room. Now at first I was tempted to think, well what were you thinking of going into a Victoria Secret store anyway??????? But it does illustrate the hypocrisy of a culture that can condemn a woman for feeding her baby and at the same time exploit her. Why do we allow this? And then I learned this:

Massachusetts is one of the few states that doesn’t have laws to protect breast-feeding women. Women who breast-feed in public in Massachusetts can be charged with indecent exposure or lewd and lascivious conduct.

Let them try it.

Breast feeding in Victoria Secret?? Why not?? NOTHING is secret in Victoria's place. Most women frequenting this place have more breasts showing than any sensible breast-feeding woman! At least she was showing the lest than properly clothed women what breasts are REALLY for. Because they don't have kids, they wouldn't know!

Even if they did, their kids would be on formula.

Usually on formula due to accute silicone blockage.
