Breastfeeding Is Beautiful…When It’s Not Downright Creepy

I just read a post on Perez Hilton about Salma Hayek still breastfeeding her baby. Her baby’s only, what, like one or so, so it seems totally within the realm of normal and I didn’t think much of it. But then! Ohmigod, then I watched this video over at Nerve’s Scanner about an 8-year-old still nursing from her mama’s boobs and it was seriously one of the most disturbing things I’ve ever seen (and I’ve been riding the subway for years, so I’ve seen lots of disturbing stuff). The part where the mother says, “If there’s any monkey business, you have to leave. I’m not having that” is super creepy. I can only imagine what sort of monkey business she might be referring to — nipple pinching? Using teeth? Lapping them around?) Oh, and I totally got the willies when the girl’s older sister, who was nursed until she was five, says about her mother’s breast milk: “Better than anything in the world. Better than a mango even.” But you guys, that’s not even the worst of it. Well, there’s sketches, and pet names, and well, you’ll just have to watch the clip to see for yourself.
