Gender Neutral “Chestfeeding” and “Parent’s Milk” recommended by Academy of Breastfeeding Medicine

Gender Neutral “Chestfeeding” and “Parent’s Milk” recommended by Academy of Breastfeeding Medicine

“language has power”

Social justice warriors are confident and bold right now, pushing insanity that even ten years ago would have been (quite rightly) laughed back to the lunatic fringes (where it belongs).

These days, though, Democrats, including the Biden administration, are proud to diminish mothers and motherhood with insulting and offensive embrace of the idea that mothers are “birthing people.”  Marxist black supremacist groups like Black Lives Matter are still pushing to “disrupt” the nuclear family, even as the public backlash caused them to remove this statement from their “What we believe” page.

Given the warp speed with which Critical Race Theory has K-12 education and corporate America twisting in its death grip, is it really surprising that this anti-woman, anti-motherhood, anti-family “birthing people” psychosis is seeping from fringe kooks to more mainstream organizations?

Case in point, the Academy of Breastfeeding Medicine is encouraging use of the terms “chestfeeding” (shudder) and “parents milk” rather than the biologically accurate “breastfeeding” and “mother’s milk.”

Fox News reports:

A worldwide organization of doctors called the Academy of Breastfeeding Medicine urged the use of “gender-inclusive language” such as “chestfeeding,” “parent’s milk” and “human milk feeding” in new guidelines.

“ABM recognizes that not all people who give birth and lactate identify as female, and that some of these individuals identify as neither female nor male,” said in a document posted July 29.

Eight doctors and the organization co-authored the document on “infant feeding and lactation-related language and gender,” and said that “the use of de-sexed or gender-inclusive language is appropriate in many settings.”

One of the co-authors, Dr. Laura Kair of the UC Davis Children’s Hospital, said in a statement that, “language has power.”

Indeed it does. And that is precisely why we must not comply with these insulting and degrading linguistic gymnastics that attempt to raise up one group (men who “identify” as women) by dragging down another, in this case, women more generally and mothers specifically.

Fox News continues:

Critics have slammed such language, including actress Kirstie Alley, who said she was “tired” of phrases “nullifying” women and their ability to breastfeed.

“I’m a little tired of the degrading and nullifying of women and their abilities. Breastfeeding is one of our abilities. It’s a beautiful and important ability. Knock off the nullifying of women fir the sake of lunatics. Equal rights does not equal insanity,” Alley tweeted Saturday morning.

Amen, sister.

These people in my opinion really need help, sadly it won’t happen.

Udderly insane. Who are the boobs who think up this stuff?

Do they know how stupid this sounds to 98% of the population ? I’m embarrassed for them. If it were not for how seriously they are trying to F*ck up our society – I might even feel sorry for them.

Is Mother Earth is acceptable?

    Lucifer Morningstar in reply to Pasadena Phil. | August 14, 2021 at 8:17 pm

    No, We now refer to Mother Earth as “Parental Unit Earth” as we do not want to offend anyone by using heinous gendered terminology.

    I’m guessing no. It’s probably “Alphabet Soup Earth” to include, but not limited to, LGBT, non binaries, Indigenous peoples, peoples who like to dress up like giant stuffed animals, diapered adults who like to be burped, and “black and brown” people (WHY the hell aren’t these people insulted from the top of their heads to the bottom of their feet for being literally dehumanized and assigned a color, stripped of who and what they are as actual people?).

    But then, we are talking the American Cultural Revolution (it’s happening here, now), so it’s probably “The People’s Democratic Republic of Earth” where our Dear Leader really likes to say the word “Democratic” while oppressing, raping, and committing genocide on the undesirables, deplorables, and wrong thinkers.

Another example of the fringe demanding that society adopt their lunacy. They and their enablers need to be ignored. If ineffective they should be shunned, if still ineffective then ever stronger measures will need to be employed until something is successful in preventing the takeover of our society.

the Academy of Breastfeeding Medicine is encouraging use of the terms “chestfeeding”

OK. The academy of chestfeeding medicine

    Ben Kent in reply to Neo. | August 15, 2021 at 4:36 pm

    I wonder how many people will cancel their membership to the academy once they change their name to “Academy of Chestfeeding” from “Academy of Breastfeeding”?

    My guess 99%.
    I do not know one single woman who will call it “chestfeeding” and thereby deny a woman’s unique ability to nurturing and sustaining a baby.

Next they will enlist in the armed forces.

The Friendly Grizzly | August 14, 2021 at 7:36 pm

Time for me to get some dinner. H’mmm… maybe I will defrost and bake a chicken chest.

It’s the Academy of Breastfeeding Medicine’s right to make fools of themselves by “encouraging” any insanity they choose.

What continues to amaze me is how contemporary American society always seems perectly eager to jump on the next bandwagon going by, no matter how obviously drunk the driver is.

    Actually, Americans, including Hispanic and Asian Americans, do not eagerly jump on this crazy BS. The propagandist leftist media, commie academia, and leftist-dominated Twitterverse does, so it makes this poison seem far more prevalent than it actually is. No one outside of DC, the Goebbels media, Democrat useful idiot voter bots, and the coastal elites buy any of this garbage. In fact, it is creating new Republican voters every single day. Rejoice.

Sorry, but biological males can’t be biological women (or mothers), no matter how badly they want it to be true. I feel like we’re headed toward Idiocracy. Brawndo, anyone?

One wonders how historians are going to look back upon this phenomenon of tranny narcissism/totalitarianism/lunacy that is so in vogue, now, among Leftists and Dhimmi-crats. The idiots who propagate this insanity are going to appear more stupid than the people who once argued that the Earth is flat.

Gender (i.e. physical and mental sex-correlated attributes) neutral? Neither masculine nor feminine, but rather a sociopolitical construct, progressive confusion, a third-way. That said, at least the baby wasn’t aborted for social progress, cannibalized for medical proress, sequestered for a carbon neutral agenda, so, there’s that.

    That is a serious plus, n.n. Good point! That said, how freaking traumatized will these babies be when they are forced to suckle a non-lactating man nipple just to fulfill his delusion that he’s a woman and a mother? And, to see the other side, how traumatized will these non-lactating men who appear to believe they are actually women and mothers be when their infant, with genetic instincts, refuses their man-breast?

    Will violence to the “homophobic” or “transphobic” baby follow? After all, these lunatics are simultaneously steeped in CRT “training” that tells them that their white babies are born racist Nazis. Why not born transphobic Nazis, too?

    This whole trend is vile and insane. We can never ever utter the words we are being forced to utter by these radical degenerates.

      Truth, or what they are trying to mangle it into, is definitely stranger than fiction.

      Heck, you couldn’t make this stuff up, and if you did, nobody would buy it.

        To be honest about it, I understand that there are some men who, with proper hormonal suplementation, *can* lactate. Not all by any means, but a few. I heard about it nearly 30 years ago before the worst of this insanity had started to hit. Some poor local baby (I was in VA at the time) had parents who decided to do this, and the medical types involved didn’t bother checking whether he was one of the ones who had the physical ability to do it. Turned out, even with the hormones, the plumbing wasn’t all there in his case, and the baby nearly starved to death.

          I have heard about that too – that pioneers crossing the plains could sometimes have a father lactating after the death of the mother in childbirth

      “how traumatized will these non-lactating men”

      Those babies will need to evolver to grow teeth sooner.

      .

      That said, how freaking traumatized will these babies be when they are forced to suckle a non-lactating man nipple just to fulfill his delusion that he’s a woman and a mother?

      You have it backwards, Fuzzy. The point of this particular bit of nonsense is that there are some “men” who are lactating and feeding the babies they gave birth to, so it’s exclusionary to pretend they don’t exist by using terms that imply only women do those things. To the rest of us, we are not being exclusionary at all, because when we say “breast-feeding” and “mothers”, we mean those “men” too, whether they like it or not.

        I get that, and it’s convoluted nonsense (not what you are saying, which is correct, but what we are supposed to buy).

        When I was doing this post, I did think–oh, so briefly–about looking into what horrible physical disease or psychological malady might cause a biological man to lactate (I saw it on an episode of House), but that was a rabbit hole I frankly had no stomach to jump down. That would mean trying to find research on the nutritional benefits–if any–to babies drinking male chest milk, and the very thought made me more than a little nauseous.

I’m so disgusted with the medical profession that I am part of

Or was I should say

.

One of the co-authors, Dr. Laura Kair of the UC Davis Children’s Hospital, said in a statement that, “language has power.”

Indeed it does. And that is precisely why we must not comply with these insulting and degrading linguistic gymnastics

This is exactly right. This is why I refuse to go along with language changes that are mysteriously imposed on us, or that are officially imposed for ideological reasons I don’t share. It’s why I insist on writing “Moslem” instead of “Muslim”, even though I have no clue what the difference is; all I know is that somehow, one bright morning, our betters started spelling it “Muslim” and insisting that I do the same, so I don’t. It’s also why I still say “Bombay” and “Madras”, and “the Ukraine”; if I were old enough to remember “the Sudan” and “the Argentine” I would probably still use them too.

    Absolutely!
    Truth matters. Never bend to their lies!

    I’ll say Argentina as it is the name of the country, but the people from there are Argentines, not Argentinians. And, to me, Afghans are either very large dogs, or a form of blanket. Afghanis are people from… yes? You? In the back? Right! Afghanistan!

Academy of Whiskey Tango Foxtrot? This is PURE bull-Shiite.

Medical science surrendered its credibility three decades ago. I know—I was teaching neurology & psychiatry to young, Shiite-filled skulls at the time. There are ONLY two sexes—either you are a woman or a man. There are rare genetic abnormalities—but they are R A R E, as in less than 0.50% of the population. As in they are a medical abnormality beyond the 95% confidence interval of being able to appropriately diagnose and maintain.

I treated gender dysphoric, chromosomal abnormalities and other gender identification disorders in my practice—and they are so rare that I had less than 20 patients out of over 150,000 cumulative patients that I treated. I kept the records and I have the stats from my practice of over five decades.

This is ebullient eshitfrication.

Why does an Academy want to avoid teaching ignorant science-confused people that there are only two sexes?

How about instead of calling them Karen’s or some other similar name we exercise their own terminology methodology. We could call them Bloviating Advocates of Stupid Terminology And Ridiculous Dogma. While that is a bit long, I am sure we could come up with a snappy acronym for it.

I find nothing humorous or worthy of sarcasm in the reporting or the image.

Why no comment about how the picture and act of having an infant attempt to suckle a male is nothing more than child abuse – the sole purpose the gratification of the male and those then present or celebrating the image ? … I will go further – it is pornography of the worst kind, as to too many it is subtle. …

Sexual perversion has become an incurable mental illness and should now be considered depraved indifference.

    elliesmom in reply to Sisu. | August 15, 2021 at 10:42 am

    The creature with the suckling child is biologically female and gave birth to the child. Through the wonders of modern pharmaceuticals, she has been taking hormones that allow to her have taken on some external male characteristics. What effect those hormones will have on the milk she’s feeding the child is another issue to be addressed.

      Where did you divine that insight from ? … And, even if true, it is “perverse” – as you acknowledge the infant’s health is secondary at best. … There is no excuse for such behavior or the mainstreaming of such an abomination of gestation; let alone nurturing it.

This is just another step in the dehumanization process.
