Ginny's article is great.
My mother was told by one of her doctors that my sister needed to eat a banana every day as a baby. She hated bananas. My mother tried cramming bananas down her throat for maybe half a week and said, "Fuck this noise, this is ridiculous."
Yes anon, my mom is a sailor.
The Mermaid was really offended by that picture. She felt (rightly given Hep's post!) that that woman is presumably an advocate for breatfeeding, that it wrongly sexualizes the practice and is incredibly damaging.
I still haven't read it.
But thanks again Ginny for that article. Good perspective on all this stuff that I feel awash in all the time as a parent. Thank goodness the Mermaid and I are in it together.
