Breastfeeding Is Now A Problem: It Is Heteronormative and Gendered? This May Be Peak Lunacy!

This is the full abstract of an article titled A Land of Milk and Honey? Breastfeeding and Identity in Lesbian Families. I have bolded the most interesting sentence.

This article explores the relationship between breastfeeding and identity in lesbian-identified families based on a pilot study of qualitative interviews and a short survey of six lesbian families in Canada and the United States. Although breastfeeding is assumed to be "natural" and a biological function, we problematize the practice as both gendered and heteronormative. In our research we found that breastfeeding has a complex role to play within the construction of one's identity as a mother, of one's gender, and of one's sexual orientation. These women's experiences offer interesting insights into the nebulous boundaries of biology and the ways in which assumptions about what is "natural" are actually social and cultural constructions.

A fisking of even the abstract isn't worth anyone's time, but this is a great example of the radical Left's desire to destroy Western cultural norms and, ultimately, Western Culture.

So breastfeeding is now a problem because it is gendered? No it isn't. Anyone can breastfeed. Of course, only lactating women are successful. As for it being "heteronormative? Uh...no. Breastfeeding has nothing to do with anything other than a mother feeding her baby, providing sustenance and also bonding in important ways. It is detached from the father, and is one of the powerful drivers of the need for a mother. But that's the part the lunatic fringe wants to break down! The rather basic division between man and woman is anathema to all they believe.

What is really interesting to me is the total lack of scientific and intellectual rigor. Six lesbian families were interviewed. Wow. These fools think that is a large enough study to mean anything? But that's a silly comment...they decided on the conclusions before they began the study.
