i’m all for lacktivism but can we stop referring to breastfeeding as “what breasts are really for”
it’s like SUPER disgustingly misogynistic to label ANY part of a woman’s body as exclusively FOR anyone but themselves
people who can’t, won’t, or…
Oh shut the fuck up. I love people like you who choose to be offended by something as simple as syntax. Yes, some moms can lactate, but that is few and far between. The majority of women, after giving birth CAN and WILL lactate, whether ‘the patriarchy’ exists or not. And whether they breastfeed or not, their milk is INTENDED for a baby’s consumption. Get the fuck over it. The function of a female breast is for feeding babies when and if the time comes.
You seriously are gross.
Not all women can have babies, what are their breasts for? Do you realize what you’re telling those women?
Some women don’t want to have babies.
Some women can’t lactate.
Assigning breasts with the job of ‘baby feeding’ is misogynist as fuck.
Also, guess what?
NOT. ONLY. WOMEN. HAVE. BREASTS.
I have DD tits and I’m not a fucking woman. So fuck you.
Just because SOME women can’t have kids, breastfeed, or identify as women does not take away from the FACT that breast tissue has mammary glands and that their function is the feeding of babies after birth. It’s not made to be offensive. No one said that you MUST reproduce or that you MUST breastfeed.
It is not offensive to a deaf person to say ears are for hearing. That is their FUNCTION. You seem to not understand that FUNCTION and purpose are two different things.
The function of breasts on BIOLOGICAL women (as in the female sex) is breastfeeding. The purpose of breasts for women* is whatever the fuck you want it to be.
I am SICK and TIRED of people objecting to seeing women using their breasts for what they are actually for. BREASTFEEDING IS NOT VULGAR OR OBSCENE.
OH MY GOD at a shopping centre near me a lady was breastfeeding in the food court and got asked if she would “like to go and do that in the bathroom” because what she was doing was considered offensive and unhygienic.
I’ll say that again.
A WOMAN WAS TOLD TO BREASTFEED HER BABY IN A TOILET BECAUSE WHAT SHE WAS DOING WAS CONSIDERED "UNHYGIENIC".
Damn son our uterus stretches like 5x the size and then contracts and pushes a 7 pound baby out of a small tube into life if you think that isn’t metal as fuck get out of my face
YOUR ORGANS THOUGH IM SO SORRY LADIES
How the hell do woman survive this?
Seriously it surprises me how many people don’t know a couple things about pregnancy and babies:
women would not survive 10 months of pregnancy they would die
A baby is nowhere near as developed as it should be to be out in the world at 9 months, but the human body has not evolved to push anything past the size of the head out, everything else the baby is can stretch and squash but the head
the vagina can’t handle anything bigger than the head at 9 months of development so we have to give birth.
But babies actually need longer than that, really, it’s why they’re such a mess when they’re born and why they’re completely dependent on care, can’t walk, can’t do anything. Note most other animals can when they are born. Babies are born too early, it’s kind of a huge and secret flaw in human evolution. I found it really interesting, so thought I’d share.
