These are the times that try men’s souls.
I read that somewhere and I liked it, so I thought I would use it here. Anyway, there’s something that I want to get off my chest: The University of Northern Colorado is now offering “breastfeeding and ‘chestfeeding’” stations on campus. What is “chestfeeding” you ask? It’s a lot like breastfeeding, but it’s for women who think they are men. The school’s Center for Women’s and Gender Equity is now recognizing and supporting “chestfeeding”-- a term used by transgender advocates to refer to “trans men” who breastfeed their children—on an equal basis with breastfeeding.
Some “trans men” opt to have their breasts removed (though apparently not Michael Moore) while others wish to avoid mastectomy procedures and elect to keep their tatas. That is where “chestfeeding” comes in. According to the website kellymom.com, “Some masculine-identified trans people use this term to describe the act of feeding their baby from their chest, regardless of whether they have had chest surgery.” What could be more masculine than giving birth to and nursing your baby?
The university’s Women’s and Gender Equity website proudly proclaims: “As a student, faculty or staff member at UNC, you will be glad to know that we have many options to support your decision to breastfeed/chestfeed your child when you return to work or school including three Lactation Stations on campus. UNC’s Breastfeeding Lactation Stations are sponsored by the Center for Women’s and Gender Equity and the Nutrition and Dietetics Program and serve students, faculty, staff and community members who choose to continue to breastfeed/chestfeed after returning to school or work.”
Who’s to say males can’t ovulate? Why do you think they call it menstruation? Breastfeeding/chestfeeding, it’s all the same. If women have ovaries, trans men can have “brovaries,” right?
This nonsense is one giant booby-trap.
