Taunton Gazette "Making Milk Public Contraversy"<br>
Just thought that those of us in MA/Taunton area should know about this.<br>
Stinkerbell posted the article in Lactivism here: <a href="http://www.mothering.com/discussions/showthread.php?t=663336" target="_blank">http://www.mothering.com/discussions...d.php?t=663336</a><br><br><br>
Here's a link to the article:<br><a href="http://www.tauntongazette.com/site/news.cfm?newsid=18268712&BRD=1711&PAG=461&dept_id=24229&rfi=6" target="_blank"><span style="color:#000000;"><span style="font-family:Arial;">http://www.tauntongazette.com/site/n...id=24229&rfi=6</span></span></a><br><br><br><br><span style="color:#000000;"><span style="font-family:Arial;"></span></span>

<table border="0" cellpadding="6" cellspacing="0" width="99%"><tr><td class="alt2" style="border:1px inset;"><span style="color:#000000;"><span style="font-family:Arial;">Feeling emotionally scarred, Tracy did the honorable and proper thing: She ratted out the iParty blue meanie to his corporate superiors - who issued a knee-jerk, please-don't-hit-me mea culpa, faster than CBS Radio and MSNBC gave Don Imus the bum's rush.<br>
What she's failed to mention, either in print or on TV, is why she was so compelled to plop to the floor instead of walking to the ladies room. Would she have jeopardized her child's welfare, his very life, if she had simply made the effort?</span></span></td>

<table border="0" cellpadding="6" cellspacing="0" width="99%"><tr><td class="alt2" style="border:1px inset;">Now, if any business - be it retail chain, a local independent store or a car dealership - announces a policy explicitly allowing open breast-feeding then that's their prerogative. But one also has to ponder how this type of adult-baby behavior will eventually affect the child.<br>
No wonder there's a legion of kids nowadays who have grown up thinking they're extra-special, entitled and oh-so-superior; after all, it's been imbedded into their id since they were fed mother's milk.<br></td>

That is the worst thing I have ever read. I am definitely going to write them a letter. I feel sick. Does anyone subscribe to this newspaper on MDC? PLEASE write and call the editor!

This just makes me that much happier that I moved away from Taunton last year. Of course, when my DH pre-interviewed with one of the principals of the school system a year and a half ago, we were ready to run away screaming as it was. I know not everyone in that town has these kinds of beliefs, but this sure doesn't help my perceptions.

I've been writing to this guy - My first letter was angry, I called him a name. He wrote back saying he's not opposed to NIP but he felt sorry for the manager who believed he was doing the right thing. I responded by saying that I felt sorry for him too, but that he perpetuated a belief that hurts kids, moms, healthcare, society ...
