Breastfeeding Mothers are "Lazy and Narcissistic?"
I just wanted to bring you up to date on the latest in late night HBO comedy, because I know you're a teensy bit tired to catch the shows with 2 a.m. feedings.
It's not that his red-blooded American maleness doesn't admire nice breasts. We know from his monologues that Maher is a breast man from way back.
And, for good measure, he believes that women who take on the cause of fighting for or protecting the
rights of women to breastfeed in public are just "petty and narcissistic."
Now, I know lots of people have strong feelings about women breastfeeding in public, but Maher and his staff ought to know better than to make fun of what is a legal right in most places. I agree with him that we have so many other more important things to be focusing on right now, so why spend several prime time minutes on this? Anything for a cheap laugh, I guess.
That is, unless Maher ever comes across a former Playboy centerfold breastfeeding when he's dining out. I'm sure he'd change his tune then.
