facebookI am a chronic facebooker.  I think it’s a great social media tool to stay in touch with friends, make new ones, and learn from others if you are open to a different opinion than yours.

Opinions can’t be wrong….they are just the way someone feels but the person that posts their opinion believes it to be true.  For instance:  I believe we never landed on the moon and the Shuttle missions were mainly used to deploy military spy and defense satellites.  A lot of people then would join the thread and call me crazy, paranoid, anti-American and probably an animal hater.  It’s just my opinion….no need to dink the hater-ade (although I AM right).

Some other random thoughts on facebook; people that use a picture of their pet or an avatar freak me out.  Checking into Wal-Mart is not a huge accomplishment.  If your kid is having a birthday then it’s obligatory to post a pic of your kid with cake on his face.  When someone switches their status to “in a relationship” I always wonder how long it will last until they change it to “single.”  There is no reason to poke anyone.  If I wanted to play “Candy Crush” I would already be playing…your invite doesn’t sway me.  I’ll look past the “toes in the sand” and the “I have a drink with a lot of fruit in it” because that is just to big of a battle to fight.

I could be wrong….but it’s just my opinion.

breast feedingThis nation truly is messed up.   Currently we are on “high alert” for a terrorist attack yet we still fear and make a big deal about “the nipple.”  I’m talking about another case of a woman getting chastised for breast feeding her child in public.

What is it about the nipple that makes us make zero sense?  Men like boobs.  Most like big boobs.  Many women spend a large amount of money to make their boobs bigger but if for some reason “the nipple” makes an appearance then a lot of people have a problem with it.  The nipple is necessary for the boob.  Without the nipple the boob would look like a house without a roof.

Men go on the internet to look at boobs.   A lot of men go to seedy clubs with loud music and ridiculous prices for beer to look at boobs.  Guys go to the beach and leer at women in bikinis just to get a look at some boobs but once ya add “the nipple then all hell breaks loose.

Breast feeding isn’t about the boob or about the nipple it’s about feeding a hungry baby.  Imagine if every time you were hungry you had to retreat to a spot of isolation to feed your pie hole.  I would much rather have a woman feed her child in public than hear the baby scream like it was in competition for “Colic Child of the Year.”

It’s time we come to our senses about the nipple—we all have them so let’s show the nipple a little respect and make them feel a little bit of love.
