The magazine Babytalk is getting a lot of complaints from readers for featuring a cover showing — gasp! — a baby breast-feeding.
The photo is barely revealing, but it prompted this response from a woman in Kansas: “I was SHOCKED to see a giant breast on the cover of your magazine. I was offended and it made my husband very uncomfortable when I left the magazine on the coffee table.”
Poor guy — maybe he can escape to Hooters. And this from the mother of a four-month-old: “Gross, I am sick of seeing a baby attached to a boob.”
In all, about 25 percent of respondents expressed outrage, according to the editor. More proof that, despite all the official talk about breast-feeding being best for children, many Americans continue to have serious hang-ups about a mother providing nourishment to her newborn.
Get a life, for crying out loud.
