Spreadin’ Love

Reaction from Lisa Belkin on the breast-feeding doll. (Thanks to Julie G.)

Daw Aung San Suu Kyi,

Bloggingheads dialogue on whether the new economy rewards the autistic worker. Going to have to come back to this.

One thought on “Spreadin’ Love

  1. Uh, people are freaking out about the breastfeeding doll? People are insane.
    Belkin says “But there are many other things that are natural for adults that children don’t necessarily need to be mimicking at five, no?”
    My daughter always mimicked breastfeeding while playing with her dolls. That’s because she saw me nursing her brother. Big f-ing deal. And how is mimicking breastfeeding encouraging young girls to have babies at a very young age, but giving them baby dolls to play with ISN’T?
    Having just come from a FB thread where a few morons who happen to be friends with a friend are complaining about euthanasia in the health care bill, my patience for stupidity is VERY thin right now.
