A man’s take on breastfeeding

This story has been making the rounds, but here’s a really fantastic post on the (Wo)Men Speak Out Blog about a man’s reaction to his wife’s breastfeeding, and his eventual evolution as a man because of it.  Yes, breasts can be sexual, but they’re also incredibly functional.  He wonders if it’s our discomfort with the idea that women can be anything other than a sexual object which leads to the general discomfort that so many people seem to have with breastfeeding, and especially breastfeeding in public.  A good question, and a very good read!
