More Fun with Juxtaposed Headlines

This time at Yahoo News:

The first one leads to a story about the Babytalk cover we discussed a week ago. (Way to be on top of the news, AFP.) The second one leads to a story that reports, “Breastfeeding's calming effects seem to be long-lasting. Years after being weaned, breastfed children cope better with stressful situations like their parents' divorce than their bottle-fed peers, researchers said on Thursday.”

So maybe the problem with all the hand-wringing boobophobes going apeshit about pictures of what is quite literally the most natural thing in the world is that they weren’t breastfed. Perhaps if they had been, they wouldn’t be so anxious about…breastfeeding. Oh, the irony.

In related news, my own study has found that anxiety among adult straight males and lesbians is also reduced by sticking a breast in their mouths.
