I'm not gonna run out and buy it, but here we are talkin' about it.

Have a cocktail, it's the lounge!

5. That's close to my first reaction as well - I really don't care how long

mothers breastfeed, but that kid just looks uncomfortable and wanting to be elsewhere...

9. Mommy, how long do I have to keep sucking your tit?

I don't like angry Mommy when I say I don't want it....but maybe I can just stay in my room for 15 years?

14. Just a few more minutes, Honey. I'm not famous yet.

I understand that people have differeing opinions on extended breastfeeding but in my experience, and I do have some, much of the extension is for the anxieties of the parent rather than the child. I have studied attachment for many years, and part of it is to learn to symbolize affection and safety, to create an internal structure that knows it's there without it having to be constantly reinforced. This mom might be well intentioned in comforting him (there is NO nutritional need at this point) but the magazine is being sexual and provocative by using her in those clothes and that posture and she's cooperating with that, to the possible detriment of her son.

And that "Are You Mom Enough" headline is just horrible. Just what we need right now, a division among women who need to stick together. The whole thing sucks.

17. Well really it's about fucking time someone replied to the mouthful of "Ok Mom I'm kinda a Big Kid"

"Now if you can get over your dominant weird ass wish to be on the mothervukkin cover and my fukkin expense."

22. I heard the actual mother being interviewed and she didn't seem like the brightest light in the box.

I'm sure her kid will be traumatized later in life.

23. Prolly went like, "Hey, wanna be on the cover and make a few bucks?"

And she was like "Yeah, what do I have to do?"

and the boy was like, "Fuck, whatever, mmmrmmemmfhhmmefmm."

And yeah, I call it exploitation.
