They? Really? Somewhere there's large movement of misogynistic men who *want* to nurse their children? I highly doubt the tiny percentage of men who would do something like this are evil oppressing woman-haters, frankly.

Sorry, I'm definitely in the "Yay males who want to be involved dads","Yay males who aren't afraid of being seen as nurturing", "Yay males who prioritize their baby's comfort and safety" camp. Obviously you can do all of those things without nursing, but I really think that the teeny number of fathers who let their children nurse are doing for the reasons I just mentioned, not because they're out to take anything from you.

Well, obviously.

I did state in my post that my reaction is ridiculous.

holy cow... Now I'm just wondering how long this can go on! I never knew people would have such strong feelings about this... Nipples are so private in their personal lives, but here, Nipples are the topic d'jour

I'm crunchy... Like a Dorito.
