Given that I am friends with the former leader of the meeting I attended and her opinion is that the people there are shaming, dogmatic, and overly aggressive with mothers--and that is her opinion after being a leader for two years and just an attendee for a long time before that--I'm going to continue to be unimpressed by your attitude here.
I think that strongly implying that people who don't want to live in a trailer forever so they can nurse as long as their child wants is a bit extreme. If you don't agree, well you have different priorities.
And I nursed for more than four years straight including through a pregnancy and tandem nursing for almost a year. In the "mainstream view" I'm already an extremist lactivist. I just don't see the need to treat my own insane priorities like something that someone else has to share or I will judge them negatively. There was a high cost to my physical and emotional well being. *FOR ME* it was worth doing. I don't look down on other people for not being up to what I did.
