It's a tough choice. You could feed your son soy milk instead, but then there is the danger of him becoming effeminate or even gay. If you don't believe it, just check here

10% of the male population being gay, one would presume.

My understanding is that it's about 10% that have some homosexual attraction, that doesn't say they have no heterosexual attraction.

Really?

I think it's 10% out and out gay gay gay. Ie: no sexual interest in female boobs and other parts. Probably a huge percentage (of "gay" and "straight") have some bi-curiosity tho.

outside of western culture, it's common to let children self ween. This often resulting occasional diminishing breast feeding usually tapering off by age 4 but occasionally lasting until age 8 or longer.

cultural identification does not always go with government affiliation. Puerto Rico is generally culturally grouped with Latin America despite being a territory of the USA.

Yes, which brings us back around to the video, which is in Spanish, which would be rather mainstream in Latin America (where they often have breastfeeding women on covers of mainstream women's magazines), while its images of nursing toddlers and preschoolers is seen as shocking and unusual here in the continental US.

someone got to post it. Its not just outside of western culture either.

I dont see it as politicisation, simply an effort to highlight consistency.
Given that you inferred i was sexist becasue i was remiss in hide tagging a pair of comedy FAKE tits when i did hide a knob shot, Halii might have a point no? I dont actually see it as in need of After Hours but just going with your prior point, it could be misinterpreted as NSFW, especially if you are in a country where there is such massive shock value in a pair of boobs.Its either about sexual content or simply body parts, you cant have it both ways.

Personally i dont care, its your OP so put it wherever you like, but lets be consistent. I do think you might get more traffic in a different forum than media, but its your call.

Quote:

Is it really that shocking or is that a bit of hyperbole? I've seen women breastfeeding here, my wife included, and it appears to be about as much of a big deal as in the UK, ie not at all

I wouldnt recommend it outdoors at this time of year of course.

imo, the depiction of lactating breasts as in the video, is not prurient or obscene. I think it should be culturally normalized and seen as no more NSFW than this:



That's kind of the whole point of being a lactivist. And the whole point of this thread.

Now your youtube drags down the tone of the thread quite a bit. Not surprisingly...

But your call. I don't care if you move it.

Right now the google img thread is still not marked NSFW and it does have more prurient imgs... Just sayin.'

the image thread is now in toto in after hours isnt it? The whole forum is labelled NSFW.
I thought Mem requested a shift for that very reason. If not then please report the post and i'll deal with it. I'm pretty much on my own here at the mo and cant keep track of absolutely everything.


And i totally agree with what you are saying re the video, but it is inconsistent of you to call me sexist for not moving/hiding some massive obviously fake jubblies and then claim the opposite for a video of real ones. S'all.

I actually agree, i think it is a lot more to do with sexual or obscene content than a basic shot of a body part, i'm a biologist after all, but then that flies in the face of your point about NSFW in the other thread. Presumably if consistent we should be pitching it at the level of the dickhead boss who might call someone out on it if they see it, rather than the more enlightened posters here?

anyway, i have no intent to move it in the absence of any complaints, if you and everyone else are happy with it here, then so am I. If you think it might get more coverage somewhere else (RN or GD at a guess) then i'm happy to help.

Lighten up ffs. That is a mainstream UK comedy show and in the context of the comment i quoted, pretty apt i thought.
