Have You Seen the Attention-Grabbing New TIME Cover?
The Blaze ^ | 5-10[12 | Madeline Morgenstern

Posted on 05/10/2012 2:41:46 PM PDT by CitizenM

Time magazine is out with its latest cover, one that’s sure to get its fair share of attention. Headlined “Are You Mom Enough?”, it features a blonde, skinny jean-wearing woman — and a preschool-age boy unmistakably latched on to her breast.

The cover goes with the magazine’s feature story on “attachment parenting” — a philosophy designed to foster a secure bond to the child. Co-sleeping, or the “family bed,” and breastfeeding well past babyhood are sometimes the hallmarks of attachment parenting.

The mother pictured on the cover is Jamie Lynne Grumet of Los Angeles and her 3-year-old son.

“I don’t consider breastfeeding immodest at all—I’m not shy about doing it in public,” she told Time.

Note: go to the site and vote in the poll.

I would like to make a serious comment, and I will later because this is way overboard. But right now I must admit...all I can say is that I imagine that boy will look at other women and always think: "Got Milk?"

The kid is getting too old to be breastfeeding. At some point breastfeeding becomes nothing more than a sexual experience for the mom and later on for both of them.

There was a movie out of Spain a few years ago about a 9-year old boy who crossed the county seeking the perfect breast to suck. It was pure breast porn involving a child.

It’s absolutely revolting and offensive.

That is not a baby at her breast by any stretch of the imagination.

Disgusting.

I went to a “libertarian family website” and noticed that a lot of posts had to do with things like ‘when does it stop being okay to sleep nude with the kids’?

seriously.

The answer was: when one of them objects.

The same site stated its beliefs that children are just like adults and have the same rights to sex and drinking and drugs and porn at ANY AGE. In other words, anything goes-including incest.

It looked like an abandoned website, I found a few like it, but they apparently have gone deeper underground.

TIME Magazine has been dying for years. I believe the only attention and publicity TIME magazine gets now is from Conservatives ripping on it.

If we ignore it, it WILL go away.

You only want to breast feed to that age and slightly beyond if you are living in a “famine” situation and the food is limited and you want to give your child the best nutrition for their developing brain.

This is beacue if the SHTF the amount of fats and especially protein availble for consumption may go down and it is better for the mom to be feeding their children the fats and proteins in breast milk should the only food that is left is nothing but carb rich food that is not good for a developing kid.

Thus this sorta nursing is something that you only see in third world countries, which means we will see it in our country (by nessisity) soon......

Unless the woman represents the State and the child represents American citizens, this is not a good magazine cover.

The photo showed Jamie Lynne Grumet, 26, a stay-at-home mom in Los Angeles who says her mother breastfed her until she was 6 years old. She told the magazine in an interview that she’s given up reasoning with strangers who see her son nursing and threaten “to call social services on me or that it’s child molestation.”

“People have to realize this is biologically normal,” she said, adding, “The more people see it, the more it’ll become normal in our culture. That’s what I’m hoping. I want people to see it.”

Out where I live on the Left coast, there is a militant breast feeding movement. They want to shock and push people around. Kind of like wearing the supermom cape!

On the other hand there are good medical reasons for mother and child to encourage breast feeding of a “baby.”

Delaying the weaning of a child to the age shown on the cover of Time Magazine (suppose to be 3, but he looks older than that) should (unless real solid medical reasons) be worth a a chat with a mental health professional or else a call to Child Protective Services.

One of the health benefits for the mother is that while nursing she actually looses fat cells, which may be part of the reason for the skinny jeans on the cover model mother.

Personally as the father of two who were breastfed by their mother, the standard medical advice of breastfeed for 6 months and then introduce solid food, sounds like a pretty good approach. Especially, since babies start teething typically around 6 months. Breastfeeding a 3 year old doesn't seem right to me.

My sister-in-law’s son clung to her (not breastfeeding but did cling to her) until he was about 7 or 8. He’s 14 now but is a little self-centered namby-pamby who wants everything handed to him. There is a reason birds shove their babies out of the nest early.

“People have to realize this is biologically normal,” she said, adding, “The more people see it, the more it’ll become normal in our culture. That’s what I’m hoping. I want people to see it."

On the other hand, a woman living in a tony, ultra-liberal suburb of San Francisco told an interviewer on a radio show that when she fed her babies using a bottle while out on the street, passersby yelled at her, saying that she should be breastfeeding her kids.

Her breastfeeding at 4 is way too old unless it was some sort of apocalyptic scenario and the child was starving.

But for Time to put it on the cover..is crazy.

Pretty though.

She is a trans racial adopter as well which I know most freepers high five over and call those of us who question it racists.

She seems to epitomize “look at me mommying!!!” which...sorry folks is often what I get from folks around me who adopt black babies on purpose and/or breastfeed rather large 4 year olds on purpose.

But draw your own conclusions.

I say a nutty but pretty shrew-mom-milf

bet my wife has those jeans...

my paternal grandmother breastfed my retarded and very sick aunt as a toddler..3 maybe... in a rural New Mexico workcamp near Artesia is the 20s with milk intended for my then newborn aunt (her younger sister)...that I get and understand but no one put her picture on the Santa Fe front page

this woman is a crusader in boobie milk and her adoption choices

I think Time feels bad about picking on moms and has found a liberal nut who breastfeeds at 4 and adopt non white kids instead of producing more evil world destroying crackers (like me and my 5 spawn)..and that fits their narrative.

never thought I could find anything wrong with breast feeding...I'm all about swollen breasts...i mean wow...it just does something to ya from so many perspectives as an hombre...even an old geezer like me..but this is just weird you know...maybe they are also Game of Thrones writers...anyone else think of that?

You are right of course, BUT, she could have aborted him. He will have to sort out his poor bringing up. There is a hell of story behind why that woman did that picture. Boy that woman really hates that kid. She probably named him Sue and ....I don’t want to even imagine.

Breastfeeding is absolutely wonderful for your BABY. This kid is not a baby anymore. I feel sorry for him, this pic will follow him around the rest of his life. Would not be suprised if somewhere down the road he ends up haboring deep resentment towards his mother.

I’ll add that this is NOT biologically normal. Hunter gatherers breast feed up to age 2. After that they get pregnant again.
