12. I wonder if we had more moms feeding from their breasts in public and around

 

their young sons, if it wouldn't eventually change society's idea around the breast in general? Would it take away the over-sexualization of the breast? And would women eventually stop trying to manipulate their bodies to form some "perfection" of what they think society thinks of the female breast? If you yhink about it, augmenting the breast to add foreign objects to them and make them larger and perfectly round is a really odd thing to do. I totally understand the need to decrease breast size for overly enlarged women (like myself who end up with back aches and shoulder issues because of the weight), but to add to a breast to make them larger... It just blows my mind that anyone would think they should need to enhance their breasts.

Anyway, I do hope more and more women can choose to breast feed and do so when their babies are hungry. I really wish even more that we had sane family planning types of policies in America that would allow a mom to take a year of pd time off to be a mother and allow for breast feeding in that first year with their child. And that we had daycare centers that were govt funded like our schools are for a safe, free, and helpful environment for children after that fist year (and for rural areas or Moms working 2nd and 3rd shifts, a voucher to help pay for a sitter).

Our world is doomed to continue to operate as a capitalistic supply sided economic enterprise. Between technology improvements taking away manual labor jobs and our finite resources available on this planet, we really should be thinking about govt's providing a baseline economic "living subsidy". It would make so much more sense to issue a living credit for the ability to live... Jobs after that baseline, would be "extra" to pay taxes and save for college and retirement and new vehicles...

There should be a manner in which society can enjoy the technological advances, have more time to care for their families, explore the world they live on, re-educate theirselves, "retire" at a decent age, enjoy access to medical advancements, live in peace sharing resources and protecting valuable resources, changing out our energy sources to solar and wind etc, and being able to do the simplest of things like bonding with one's child while giving them lunch.

It really is time to re-think society and the way in which we live. What are we passing on to our children? A stinky, ugly, war torn world with so much chaos and only a few people enjoying the best of the best?
