TIME magazine breastfeeding cover photo

Whoa. Hi there, TIME magazine. You went there, didn’t you?

I’m as pro-breastfeeding-in-public as one can be, but this cover photo the intentional provocation of this cover annoys me.  The 26-year-old mother Jamie Lynne Grumet is model-hot and that’s no accident; nor is it an accident that her child she is breastfeeding is three-years-old, an age which some may argue is “too old” to be nursing at their mama’s breast. I make no judgments about this mother’s attachment parenting or breastfeeding. But I wonder, will the visceral reaction to this provocative cover  — which I would place bets on being covered up at newsstands, a la Cosmopolitan titties —  do more harm to the parenting tactics she believes in than it will do good?

Farting is farting. Everybody farts. Go read that book Everybody Poops. It’s the same thing. 

Ever wish you could just talk over your boy problems with Jon Hamm? Rookie Mag enlisted Jon as their Ask A Grown Man panelist, no doubt due to his scruffy hotness/enviable 14-year-long relationship with girlfriend Jennifer Westfeldt. He tackled relationship questions like whether boys have intense crushes (they do, because boys are human), whether a teen girl should have sex with her boyfriend (“slow your roll!”), and the all-important relationship fart conundrum. Jon is firmly on the side of let that fart rip. God,  could he be any more perfect? [YouTube]

On Monday, the Drudge Report posted a picture of Secretary of State Hillary Clinton without makeup, save a bit of red lipstick, with the headline “Au Naturel.” 

As blogger Erin Gloria Ryan at Jezebel put it, “A woman didn’t wear makeup and this is news?” This dig at Clinton’s appearance, especially her makeup-less appearance, should be all the proof you need that sexism is alive and well in America today. Keep reading »
