Apparently Time Magazine was feeling left out. With Fifty Shades of Grey getting banned left, right and centre (but mostly right), and even Archie Comics causing controversy, Time decided to hop on the gasp-causing bandwagon with this week’s cover. The photo, as you can see above, shows a woman who believes in attachment parenting breastfeeding her three-year old son. Obviously, they were aiming for publicity and controversy – that’s what sells magazines. But what the heck was the mother thinking?
Her decision about breastfeeding her son is her own. But this pose and photo is designed to be provocative, and doesn’t strike me as the mother putting the child’s best interests first. Bring on the media storm – here’s hoping the boy weathers it.
