Are We Ready for the Breastfeeding Father?
The New York Times ^ | October 17, 2019 | Carl Cederstrom

A young man with shoulder-length dark hair leans back in a chair, his T-shirt pulled up to his chin. Two plastic tubes the size of shot glasses are attached to each of his nipples. Through the plastic, we see his skin inflate and deflate in a steady rhythm.

It’s early autumn 2009, and on a little-watched Swedish late-night television show, 25-year-old Ragnar Bengtsson has begun what the host calls a “scientific experiment.” Over the next three months, three times a day, Mr. Bengtsson will pump his breasts to see whether they will produce milk.

Well, we are being told that men can menstruate, and some colleges are putting menstrual products in men’s rooms because they may have some male students who need them.

So it’s not a stretch, with this mindset, to think that men can breastfeed a baby.

Only if we are victim to a mass delusion.

Even La Leche League literature states that --- on a theoretical level --- men can develop lactating breasts. I wouldn't count on it on a practical level: it would take a lot of oxytocin/prolactin calibration, and while you're struggling to stimulate the correct hormonal levels (which would take awhile--- weeks, I suppose---) the poor baby would get mighty hungry.

What's wrong with the mother? Did she have a double mastectomy to get rid of those hated female secondary sexual characteristics?

Why do people go to such great lengths to focus on the abnormal at the expense of the normal?

I loved it when I could pick up the crying baby and give it to mom to nurse. And then go back to sleep

There’s a commercial that’s been airing for a week or two with a son telling his dad he just got his period, one man asking another for a tampax, etc. DISGUSTING.

We don’t know what’s wrong with the mother. Maybe she died. Maybe she, for whatever reason, cannot produce sufficient breast milk to feed her child.

Of course, we in the 21st century have synthetic formula so no need to torture the poor father like this...

“Well, we are being told that men can menstruate..”

“Transgender men” are women who *claim* to be men.
So yes, they really *do* menstruate, until they have hysterectomies to remove their uteruses. (Uteri?)

I know, it’s hard to sort out.
