MSNBC thingI have to say that I can't agree more...and I was actually the pro NIP guest on the MSNBC show (unless there was another one I don't know about!!) It was hard for me to believe that the women on the show were so much less evolved about this than Ron Reagan was. He said some great stuff actually, whereas the women seemed to be living on another planet, or certainly had no personal experience with nursing as far as I could tell! I guess we can't assume that women will understand each others' experience...beliefs often seem to matter more than gender. Anyway if you want to get further riled up you can look at some of the idiotic quotes viewers left on my website, http://www.thenewmom.com. It is hard for me to avoid deleting some of them but I believe in free speech!

Can I just say that one of the saddest things for me about all of this is that these things are being said by other women couldn't we all try to support each other?
