Since we went onto this topic in the breast-feeding thread, I think this should have its own thread to not deviate too much from the BFing topic in the original thread.
Anyway, a few posters have mentioned that these ads (huge billboards, commercials, etc.) and how it’s ridiculous that these ads are acceptable but breastfeeding is not. I think we’ve been programmed to find these ads acceptable – we want to be these supermodels not some harried-looking mother getting the side-eye for breastfeeding in public. But I think it goes beyond that.
I find these ads misogynistic. I always get super uncomfortable when I watch them on TV in front of my SO. I suddenly feel so ugly and liek sh!t.
I’m curious to read your thoughts, Bees. So have at it!
PS It’s my first post with a poll. Yay!
